I am normal weight, more like somewhat skinny. My BMI is 19.5. So what makes no sence to me is: Insulin Resistance is always linked to overweight people....

I was perscribed acomplia 100mg . I am very concerned that the acompliais going to make me loose even more weight. Is that a possibility?

As TBP says, it ain't necessarily so

Who prescribed it, and why did they prescribe it? Obviously not for obesity - so what condition is being treated with acomplia?

I'm with Shanny but with one extra question

When was it prescribed?

I was doing a bit of digging reasons for its use other than obesity and smoking and found this :
"Warning!
October 2008: The license for Acomplia tablets has been suspended throughout Europe because the risks associated with the medicine are now considered to outweigh the benefits. "

That's a quick clip from:

Acomplia (withdrawn from the market - October 2008)

I suggest that you do need to discuss this prescription with your doctor.

I would certainly ask the doctor why you were prescribed Accomplia. It does say it can be used to reduce triglycerides but there is Lovasa now which does that which is a prescription fish oil. Accomplia is normally used as a weight loss drug so if you have a BMI of 19.5, then the your doctor obviously didn't prescribe it for weight loss.
