Slimex Review - 6 Things You Need to Know


We hear a lot of buzz about Slimex. We decided to dig deep into the ingredients, side effects, and scientific research to see what’s up. We took hundreds of customer comments into consideration. Then, we condensed and refined to give you the info you need.

Slimex Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Burn HD.

What is Slimex?

First off Slimex is a fat burner containing sibutramine hydrochloride. [1] The recommended serving is two capsules per day, supposedly increasing metabolism, fat burn, and weight-loss. The convenient package makes it easy to take anywhere.

There’s limited information about when Slimex hit the market, but we found several overseas companies claiming the product as their own. We like that we found some favorable customer comments and it seems to be affordable, but read on…

Ineffective Slimex Ingredients – “Not Working?”

The first thing we found interesting was the effectiveness of Slimex ingredients or lack thereof. “The main ingredient sibutramine has been linked to increasing metabolism for some, but not for all,” said our Research Editor. “It also has been shown to cause negative reactions.” [2]

  • “I was surprised to see this supplement contained an ingredient the FDA banned in 2010,” commented a customer. [3]
  • “I have been using Slimex 15mg for a year now, but I stopped after gaining weight. I went back but the pills seems not to have any effect on me,” reported another.

We found that some customers found the supplement effective.

  • “I have been using this for about half year, and it works,” stated a user.

Side Effects – “Watch Out!”

The common theme from customers in forums was the intensity of Slimex side effects.

  • “When I took Slimex, I noticed my heart rate was a little high, and I felt really anxious all the time,” stated a customer.
  • “The side effects weren’t worth it. I couldn’t sleep,” commented a user.

Despite the fact that some users experienced side effects, there were some who reported no issues with the supplement.

  • “I lost weight quickly, and didn’t experience any side effects,” reported a consumer.
  • Another user said, “I guess I’m lucky – I got weight-loss and no side effects.”

Over the years, we’ve found it takes a small thing, like negative side effects, that could limit the long-term results. If a supplement caused adverse reactions, is it worth your money?

The Science – “Solid Research?”

After looking through the official website, we found details about Slimex, but couldn’t locate solid science supporting the weight-loss claims. We did find information about the Food and Drug Administration cautioning consumers about sibutramine. At DietSpotlight, we want to see science showing it works. If the research isn’t there, we become concerned. [4] [5]

What Users Are Saying

"”I don’t need to drop a lot of weight, but it did suppress my appetite. No side effects at all!”"

"”I’ve got a lot of weight to lose and I thought these tablets might give me a big boost. I was disappointed. I stuck to a well balanced, low-cal diet and didn’t lose any more than I normally would.”"

"”Took the whole lot of these and didn’t lose a single pound; thought they would be better than the other rubbish I have tried.”"

Does Slimex Work?

Is it time to clear the shelves of Slimex? Well, we like that we located some positive customer comments and the low price tag, but we’re skeptical about this one because there’s no research backing the weight-loss claims. We also have concerns due to reports of negative side effects, ineffective ingredients, and FDA warnings.

If you’re ready to lose weight, we suggest a weight-loss product made with some clinically-tested ingredients and no mention of negative side effects.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Dietspotlight Burn. It’s made with a blend of clinically-tested ingredients, shown to help boost fat loss and accelerate metabolism. We couldn’t find any nasty reviews, but users are talking about real results.

Plus, the makers of Dietspotlight Burn are so confident in their product they are offering customers a Special Trial Offer. This is always something we like to see.

How much does Slimex cost?

For a package of Slimex that contains 30 tablets, the cost is about $26.90. However, it’s important to note that this medication is no longer used. Any products available online are not likely the real thing.

How should I take Slimex?

One capsule of Slimex is to be taken every day.

How much does shipping for Slimex cost?

The website claims that shipping is free, but that is only if you buy six packages totaling to $113.40.

Does Slimex come with a guarantee?

We did not find a money back guarantee for Slimex.

What You Should Know: Slimex

Maintaining a low-calorie diet and adhering to regular exercise is something that most people cannot stick to religiously. This is especially harder for people who are very overweight and have been used to an unhealthy kind of living. This is where medical and diet supplements come in. Their aim is to improve the efforts of people in order to help them achieve their targeted weight loss. One such product is Slimex or Sibutramine 15mg. Slimex is a health supplement that claims to assist in weight loss. They do however state clearly that the product is not an instant solution or wonder drug. For best results, it should still be combined with healthy eating and exercise. The prescribed dosage is one capsule a day only. The capsule should be taken more or less at the same time each day along with a glass of water. It can be taken either before or after a meal. However, before taking Slimex, make sure to consult your doctor first to see if you have any existing medical condition that will prohibit you from taking the product. Slimex originated from India and is manufactured by a company called Signature Pharmaceuticals Ltd. It’s also known by other names such as Meridia in the USA and Reductil in Europe. It comes in a yellow capsule form, thirty of which are contained in each package box. With regards to price, one box of Slimex costs around $36 each. As with most diet supplements, the manufacturers recommend that for best results, Slimex should be combined with a low fat diet and moderate exercise. They claim that after using the product, one should start losing at least 2kg within the first month of use.


Each capsule of Slimex contains 15mg of sibutramine hydrochloride.

Product Features

Slimex claims to have a different approach to weight loss when compared to most traditional appetite suppressants. They say that the product works by altering the level of serotonin and noradrenaline in the brain. These are two chemicals which are important for regulating our energy intake and output. According to the manufacturers, this process has two main results for the user. The first one is an obvious decrease in the amount of food intake and the second is a highly improved metabolic rate which are both very essential for weight loss. Some users notice effects within 2 weeks of usage while others say that they started seeing results after a longer period of time. The makers of Slimex advice users to continue using the product once the weight loss starts to plateau.

Slimex Advantages

  • Non-addictive and has been approved for long-term weight loss management
  • Safe to use because it can only be availed with a doctor’s prescription
  • The capsules are labeled accordingly to guide the user regarding proper intake

Slimex Disadvantages

  • Some users say that side effects include mood swings and migraine
  • Effectivity varies from person to person
  • Is not recommended for elderly people, children, nursing mothers and pregnant women
  • Product cannot be used by people with pre-existing medical conditions

Slimex Conclusion

Slimex seems to be a safe dietary supplement for overweight people who want to accelerate their weight loss. The fact that it requires a doctor’s prescription, adds to the credibility of the product and its manufacturers. This however means that one has to pass the usual criteria in order to be able to use the product. Results vary per person though so don’t expect any instantaneous results.

  •  Is this a legit stuff?

    I took meizitang before this stuff was banned in the US and it worked wonders! I ordered slimex and don’t feel like its working the same as the meizitang. It’s from signature, in India. I can’t tell if the sibutramine is legit. I’m scared of damaging my organs if it’s not legit stuff.

  •  So far not good
    water purification systems (Verified User)

    I’ve only been using the device for a couple of days, so the ultimate verdict remains to be determined, but I can tell you this: I have a perfectly common, modern faucet, and neither the diverter, nor any of the adapters that come with this unit fit my faucet. Not even close. I spent over a month going back and forth with the company to hunt down and finally get the correct adapter to me. While I’m relieved to have an adapter that fits, it was a painful ordeal, and even still, the O-ring that came with it isn’t correct, so I had to custom-rig the adapter to stop the leaking. Additionally, you get a very limited amount of water hose with this thing. Barely enough to make it work, if that. I ultimately had to make a trip to the local hardware store to buy some more, because there wasn’t enough for my application. Nothing that will break the bank, but an inconvenience nevertheless, and something to be aware of. If this device works as well, and as dependably as it is said to work, then it’ll all be worth it. But again, that all remains to be seen over time.

    • Susanne

      Hi Kathleen. In case you are still looking for Slimex, I just ordered it from Canadian Neighbor Pharmacy. According to what I have read, this is the same as the US drug Meridia which has been banned in the states. I had great success on Meridia so I ordered it. I did experience mild headaches but I lost 13 lbs the first month on 10 mgs so I think I can deal with a headache. Be careful if you have high BP because this drug will increase it. I have low BP so it wasn’t an issue for me. Also, this drug will make you thirsty! I would drink a gallon of water a day. Good luck.
