what is the best way to reduce the fats on tummy ..are there any medication available which is proven to reduce the fats on tummy permanently
The best way to reduce fat, is by exercising daily
and there are no medication proven to only reduce abdominal(Tummy) fat
so any other way where alopathy medicines which can reduce fats from overall body ?
There are medicines which belong to a group called statins and fibrates.
how do they work ? how long they have to b taken and the results
These decrease fat accumulation and absorption, they basically work by eliminating the bad cholesterol
Results vary from individual to individual.
and these nee to taken till the time you get the blood cholesterol levels normal
Contraceptive pills usually cause a marginal weight gain, but not very significant and can only be used in women.
Not all contraceptive pills have this effect, only a few combination pills have these effects
my wife is on Loette contraceptives and with anti depressants frm last 1 n half year so does tht also a reason for weight gain excessivley ?
as u said combination of pills coz weight gain
Antidepressants are well known to cause significant weight gain
so stopping of the same will return the weight to normal state with regular excercise or it needs some medication as well ?
Stopping am antidepressant is not wise
The risk of stopping an antidepressant is not acceptable, but you can ask your doctor to change the medicine, there are newer antidepressants which do not have this side effect
You should continue with the antidepressant medication for as long as your treating doctor has advised and to combat the problem of weight gain, you hsould do regular exercises]
Adding medicines which decrease the cholesterol are also not a wise decision in people who are on antidepressants.
You should discuss this with your psychiatrist as well as a general physician(MD in XXXXXXX medicine)
sure this helps ..thanks a lot doc
