Regenon is used in the short-term treatment of obesity. Their appetite-reducing effect tends to decrease after a few weeks. Because of this, these medicines are useful only during the first few weeks of a weight-loss program. Regenon can help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and to exercise. Changes in eating habits and activity level must be developed and continued long-term in order for you to continue losing weight and to keep the lost weight from returning.
Regenon comes as a regular and extended-release (long-acting) tablet. Regenon usually is taken three times a day, 1 hour before meals (regular tablets), or once a day in midmorning (extended-release tablets). Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take Regenon exactly as directed. Do not crush, chew, or cut extended-release tablets; swallow them whole. Regenon may be habit-forming. Call your doctor if Regenon loses its effect.
