While online consultations will never replace traditional medicine, they are convenient for the patient that does not require a physical exam to receive the treatments they need.

Weight Loss with Redux?
I have been taking Redux for about one month now, with mixed results. The first two weeks I completely lost my appetite (which wasn't so bad, as I was 360 pounds), and I would only remember to eat when I got weak. Is this common? What's the word on Redux? Also, I've noticed a complete lack of depressive episodes, which I get chronically. Is this due to the fact that Redux is a seratonin re-uptake inhibitor? Thanks :)
Redux, which last year became the first new diet drug to be approved by federal regulators in 23 years, has been embraced wholeheartedly by dieters and diet clinics, and is expected to become a US$1 million drug during its first five years. But the Food and Drug Administration has some reservations about its safety, and physicians are worried about its overuse.
While Redux has promise for some people, it certainly is not the answer to obesity. Maybe sometime in the future we will fine tune these pharmacological approaches. But at the moment, Redux and all the others remain fairly crude drugs, even though they're better than drugs we've had in the past.
Redux is chiefly indicated for people who are very overweight, rather than moderately overweight. Some of the more common side effects include fatigue, diarrhea, vivid dreams, and dry mouth. There are also some serious, albeit rare, toxic effects; you wouldn't want to risk these unless you really needed help with health-threatening weight problems.
Redux works by stimulating the seratonin system in the brain, which makes people feel satisfied and full. It could also be contributing to the alleviation of depression you're enjoying. In fact, some scientists think it's actually the mood elevation you're feeling that helps you stop eating and lose weight. An older diet drug, fenfluramine, which is taken in combination with phentermine ("Fen-Phen"), was developed on this principle. Researchers found that high levels of carbohydrates in the blood boosted seratonin levels, which then improved mood. They theorized that people may overeat high-carbohydrate foods in an effort to boost their mood. Fenfluramine, like Redux, boosts seratonin production levels, bypassing a person's drive to overeat.
This all sounds great, but there are problems with artificially boosting seratonin. Redux has caused brain damage in rats and monkeys. With a slight overdose, the drug apparently causes the neurons that make seratonin in the brain to burn out. Some of the neurons regenerate, but usually without hooking up to the right connections. The long-term result could be memory loss, depression, concentration problems, and sleep disturbances, among other things. Redux also raises the risk of pulmonary hypertension, a potentially fatal disorder that tightens up blood vessels in the lungs to the point where the heart may fail while trying to pump blood through them.
Another problem with any drug like Redux involves getting off it once you've lost the weight you want. With most pharmacological weight-loss treatments, the pounds come right back once you stop taking the drug. So you can't use Redux alone. You have to add a regular program of exercise to your life, and change your eating habits. It's simple, but not always easy: You must eat less and exercise more. Also keep in mind, the more gradually you lose the weight, the more likely you will maintain your slimmer self.
