Lorcaserin Hydrochloride is the ingredient, which again works with the hypothalamus gland. It is still relatively new, but has shown no significant risks or side effects at this point in time. The biggest issue is that it only works as an appetite suppressant. It does not combat emotional eating, burn extra fat, increase the metabolism, etc. It only suppresses appetite. So if you are having problems with that, it can help at first. However, later on, you should actually use something else or make certain diet changes to help increase your metabolism, increase fat burning, etc.
Lorcaserin is not safe to take if:
- You have a history of eating disorders
- You have a history of clinical depression
- You are allergic to this component
- You have a history of kidney problems
Possible Side Effects
- Dry mouth
- Urinary tract infections
- Kidney Stone
- Clinical depression
Overall Impression of Lorcaserin:
All things considered, especially for a prescription, Lorcaserin is fairly well tolerated. In clinical trials, serious side effects such as pneumonia, clinical depression, kidney stones, and seizures only manifested in a select few individuals. There were no apparent effects on heart function or pulmonary artery pressure. But with its limited function as an appetite suppressant, Lorcaserin can only help so many people, and we are not sure about how effective it would be as compared to 1000mg of glucomannan, which has proven to be an extremely effective appetite suppressant with no side effects whatsoever. At this point, we are unsure of recommending this product, as the results are unsure at best.
