Thursday, May 06, 2004 4:03 pm Email this article
More patients stuck with a prescribed diet for six weeks and lost weight when they were given 75 mg of sustained-release diethylpropion than those who were given a placebo (78 percent versus 50 percent, respectively). However, weight loss was similar among those who lost weight in both group (6.5 pounds versus 6.4 pounds).
Side effects were twice as common in those taking diethylpropion as placebo (37 percent versus 16 percent) and included nervousness, headache, nausea, constipation, dry mouth, insomnia, rash, bad taste, flush, palpitations.
One patient taking the diethylpropion dropped out because of headache and dry mouth.
There were no significant changes in blood pressure in any patient.
