What is this medicine used for?

VitaLipo (lipotropic injections) is used to help release fat deposits in some parts of the body, including:

  • Stomach
  • Inner thighs
  • Neck
  • Buttocks
  • Hips

Lipotropic or fat burning substances include:

  • Methionine, which helps the liver remove fat
  • Inositol, similar to methionine
  • Choline, which distributes cholesterol and prevents it from getting deposited in one part of the body
  • In some cases, a combination of these may be given.
    –  Because lipotropics directly aid fat breakdown and are closely related to B vitamins, when used together, they are thought to intensify each other’s effects.
    –  They are usually injected separately but as part of the same overall injection cycle.
Who should NOT take this medicine?

If you have an allergy to methionine, inositol, choline, or any part of this medicine. Tell your healthcare provider if you are allergic to any medicine. This includes rash; hives; itching; shortness of breath; wheezing; cough; swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat; or any other symptoms involved.

What are the precautions when taking this medicine?

You may experience injection site irritation. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.

How is it best taken?

This medication is to be injected intramuscularly. DO NOT inject intravenously. This medicine can be taken at any time during the day. Follow diet plan and exercise program as recommended by health care provider.

What do I do if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take two doses at the same time.

What are some possible side effects of this medicine?

Potential side effects include:

  • Stomach upset and urinary problems (due to the strain the injections place on the kidneys)
