Despite the fact Sibutramine-containing drugs (including Sibutril) were withdrawn from the European market five years ago, many Europeans still try to find them at pharmacies. The reason for popularity of Sibutril (Sibutramine) pills in Europe is that these diet pills are still sold on online pharmacies.
It is noteworthy that until 2010, the European owner of marketing authorization for Sibutril capsules was Sandoz. Today, this pharmaceutical company does not manufacture Sibutramine-containing drugs. Therefore, other companies are indicated as the manufacturers of Sibutril capsules available on online pharmacies.
In 2015, Sibutril capsules are very popular in Poland and in the UK. Given the fact that Sibutril capsules are not approved in any European country, it is impossible to buy Sibutril in Poland and in the UK legally.
Import and retail sale of Sibutramine-containing products are forbidden in Poland. Therefore, it is better to refrain from buying Sibutril (Sibutramine) on Polish online pharmacies.
It should be noted that in 2014, Sibutramine could be found in a list of active substances approved in the UK. In early 2015, Sibutramine was excluded from this list. Thus, it can be stated that today it is impossible to get a prescription for Sibutramine in the UK.
A special attention should be paid to the fact that Sibutril capsules were always sold in Poland and in the UK legally. Until 2010, Sibutramine capsules were supplied only in the Baltic countries, including Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
At Polish pharmaceutical market, Sibutramine-containing weight loss products were sold under the trade names Afibron, Lindaxa, Meridia, Obesan and Zelixa. Only a few Sibutramine-containing anti-obesity drugs were supplied at the UK market; the most popular among them is Reductil.
If you decide to buy Sibutril online in Poland or any other European country, remember that production, export and import of Sibutramine-containing drugs in the EU were banned in 2010.
One of the few countries where Sibutramine-containing drugs are still used for the obesity treatment is Brazil. Diet pills supplied at the Brazilian pharmaceutical market are almost impossible to find in the Europe. Thus, obese Europeans should use only those diet pills that are legally sold in their country.
It should be noted that in 2015, new diet pills – Mysimba could appear at the European market. Just as Sibutril capsules, they reduce hunger and help to control appetite.
In December 2014, Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use confirmed that the benefits of Mysimba diet pills exceed their potential risks and recommended the European Medicines Agency to issue a marketing authorization for this weight loss product.
