Meridia (prescription drug in USA) is an appetite suppressant and promotes weight loss by tricking the body into believing that it is not hungry or that it is full. It falls in the same class of many anti- depressants such as Prozac. Serotonin is a chemical released in the brain after you have eaten a meal, which is a signal that makes you feel full. Meridia acts to inhibit the reabsorption of serotonin so the that signal lasts longer, thus giving the sensation that you are full for a longer period of time.
Meridia Side Effects. The following are most common (percentage of people with this side effect in brackets): headache (up to 30%), dry mouth (up to 17%), anorexia (up to 13%), insomnia (up to 11%), constipation (up to 11%), back pain (up to 8%).
Weight Loss Drugs are NOT a cure-all and should be combined with physical exercise and better diet for them to have lasting effects. There seem to be three popular alternatives nowadays: xenical (which is the same as Alli), meridia and phentermine (which is the same as adipex). Note: safety and effectiveness of xenical and meridia have not been established for usage beyond 2 years.
Weight Loss Drug Side Effects are usually mild; however, serious complications have been reported. Consult with your doctor! Most mild symptoms become less or disappear as your body adjusts to the drug. Alli is available over-the-counter now, and most Alli and xenical side effects involve fecal changes. Phentermine is not for longterm usage, for there is significant possibility for drug dependence; also, its effectiveness at helping folks lose weight is usually minimal, a fraction of a pound loss a week.

|Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze: "For those with psychic skills here on the earth plane, there is the potential ability to communicate with the souls and entities on spiritual planes (astral or higher) via channeling, intuition, genuine visions, the Ouija board, automatic writing, etc. There used to be widespread belief that people engaged in this type of communication were talking with the devil or participating in great evil. Even today, those who overly focus on communication with the astral plane may often be so judged. Instead of evil, however, I suggest that we need to address ignorance. It is a real gift to have the psychic sensitivity necessary for such communication, but it also can be a trap when there is too much attachment to contacting the lower astral plane.
