    CB-1 reverse agonist. Essentially, mechanism of action is reverse of what marijuana does (gives you the munchies). I believe there is a post in ibe forum that contains a detailed review with clinical data.

    I should of told you I have tried it. I used it for three months, 10 mg/ day, just to see how it worked short term. (Note that innovator indicates that it is for long term use and the data I saw was based on 1 year.) I believe at a higher dose it would work in the short term. It was mildly suppressive at 10mg dose for me. Over three months lost ~ 12 lbs, with diet and low impact cardio. Weight started at was 240 lbs. I was considering using it again, but at 20 mg / day. Note also, I had no sides at 10 mg. I have used hoodia, and rimonabant worked better than that, though "appetite suppression" is hard to quantify. If you search, you can find rimonabant "on special" right now.

    If I'm not mistaken (although I very well might be), I believe rimonabant is often associated with some side effects.

    Edit did the digging: Entrez PubMed

    Side effects of depression and anxiety should be noted and looked for especially if your giving this to someone who isnt knowledgable about it.

    You are correct there are sides, I was stating I did not have any sides at 10mg dose. Side effects in studies exhibited at high doses. The major side effects for drugs in this class are pyschological in nature as you stated.

    I figured I'd post that for two reasons; one, you said you wanted to up-it to 20mg for a cycle (thats where most of the clinical trials occurred), but I'm glad to see you are on top of it. Two, it was more for those people who are considering jumping into rimonabant to control appetite and havent really looked into it yet (such as WWB2's wife).

    Rimonabant


    I bought 100 grams of this bulk powder to cap my own. It was too hard for my feeble mind to try to measure out 20 mg's per cap. After "guessing" for am month or so, I couldn't tell a difference. At best guess, I was doing 20-35 mg per day. Didn't really notice anything as far as appetite suppressance_such a word?) I still had 30-50 grams left.. Didn't work for me..For what that's worth..:burg:
