New Diet Drug Tesofensine

A new diet drug is the final stages of development and should be available via prescription in 2011.

Tesofensine is the name of the drug developed by Neurosearch, an experimental drug company and will possibly be rebranded commercially at a later date.

Tesofensine is said to offer twice the weight loss of competing prescribed weight loss drugs – but at what cost.

Prescribed diet drugs have a pretty poor record when the safety element is scrutinised. Both Reductil and Acomplia have been subject to bad press and some rather nasty side effects over the last few years with both being subjected to calls fro a withdrawal from the marketplace.

How Does Tesofensine Work

Tesofensine effects the brain, there are three different regions that the drug targets and increases the transmission of three neurotransmitters, namely,  dopamine, noroadreneline and seratonin. All the neurotransmitters act to reduce appetite and increase the metabolism.

Dopamine acts to send the brain messages about the pleasure derived from food, while noroadreneline and serotonin increase metabolism and reduce appetite.

Tesofensine Side Effects

So far clinical trials have thrown a few side effect issue that need to be address prior to release. The most common side effects were dry mouth, insomnia and intestinal problems.

When Will Testofensine Be Available

There is no confirmed date yet.

Can I Buy Tesofensine Over The Counter

it is highly unlikely that it will be available without prescription.

Is Tesofensine Worth The Wait

It is important to remember that weight loss drugs are exactly that, DRUGS and so do not come without complication and a risk to health.

With the advancement of natural based diet pills it could be argued that prescribed drugs are not as an attractive proposition as they once where.
