Mysimba is new diet pills that first became available for sale in 2017. Mysimba tablets are already available in Spain and will be supplied to pharmacies in most European countries before the end of 2017.
The action mechanism of Mysimba tablets differs from that of other obesity drugs, available in Europe. Therefore, they will certainly open the way to a successful weight loss for thousands of obese Europeans, who fail to reduce their weight through other methods of fighting obesity.
The uniqueness of Mysimba tablets is that they contain two active ingredients at once:
Thanks to these effects, Mysimba helps to:

- Quickly get rid of bad eating habits
- Achieve a sustained and long-term weight loss.

Children and adolescents did not take part in Mysimba trials, and today they are not being prescribed this drug for weight loss.

If such studies succeed, and the safety of Mysimba for the health of obese children will be proven, this drug will certainly be approved for drug therapy for childhood and/or adolescent obesity.
Today, Mysimba is prescribed to adult men and women for the treatment of:
Obesity (BMI of 30 and higher)
Overweight ** (BMI from 27 and higher)
Mysimba tablets should be used only for assistive drug therapy for obesity, in combination with a low-calorie diet and regular physical activity.
Mysimba sales are allowed in all EU countries, as well as the European countries that are not EU members.
Developer & Manufacturer
The formula prototype for the diet pills Mysimba was developed by:
- Physiologist Michael Cowley.
- Doctor of Medical Sciences Eckard Weber.
In 2002, Dr. Weber and Michael Cowley founded Orexigen Company. For more than 10 years, Weber, Cowley and other Orexigen employees have been studying the combined impact of Naltrexone and Bupropion active ingredients over the mechanisms that regulate hunger and satiety.
After a successful completion of laboratory, preclinical and clinical studies, Orexigen Company patented the new drug, based on Naltrexone and Bupropion, and applied for its approval in:
- The European Medicines Agency (EMA)
- The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In Europe, the tablets for the anti-obesity treatment, based on Naltrexone/Bupropion were registered under the brand Mysimba.
After studying the results of clinical trials on Mysimba (Contrave) – the FDA and the EMA:
- Confirmed the efficacy and safety of this drug for weight loss.
- Approved it for the treatment of overweight and obesity in adults over 18 years of age.
