I am 34, 60kg and have been taking Obirax for 20days. How long can I continue? Will I gain weight if I stopped? I have PCOS. How long have I to wait to restart Obirax? I have now lost weight, but fear gaining weight after stopping Obirax.

Taking weight loss pills is not a very healthy option for weight loss. I always advice my patients to lose weight in a natural way because it is long lasting. It is good to know that you have lost weight by taking Obirax, however do not consult your doctor regarding future use. It is best you start taking a diet to maintain your current weight. Kindly let me know if you need any help on what type of diet you should take.

I'm a vegetarian who eats little but still gains weight. My doctor told me that it is due to policystic ovaries that was discovered by a laproscopy. Hence I started taking Obirax. I would appreciate if you send me a suitable diet list and also let me know whether I should use Obirax.

Thank you

Hi Anne,

Obirax is an anti-obesity drug so please consult your doctor for its further use. To suggest a suitable diet, I need to know about your height and weight besides your diet pattern for the day and activity level. Diet plans are individualized and a thorough assessment is required prior to a suitable prescription. Do let me know if your still interested. You can meet me personally also.

Hi Anne,

It is quite common among women and women with policystic ovaries gain weight due to hormonal imbalance. I would suggest that you take a healthy diet to avoid major complications like suppressing your immune system. So the best thing would be to consult your doctor and get a blood test done besides taking a proper drug to inhibit the secretion of hormone that is elevated in your blood.

Dr. Raj
