The feeling of hunger and saturation is regulated by the centers of a brain, first of all the centers of hypothalamic area. At some morbid conditions which are followed by obesity, excess body weight it is reasonable to use the medicines limiting appetite (anorexigenic means) in complex therapy. Search of such means is conducted among the connections of the endogenous nature produced by brain tissues. Earlier for treatment of constitutional forms of obesity hormonal drug Adiposinum received from a front share of a hypophysis of the lethal cattle was used. However this drug was insufficiently effective, caused side reactions (an allergy, a liquid delay in an organism, etc.) in this connection it was excluded from the nomenclature of medicines.
Now as anorexigenic means some synthetic connections of the non-hormonal nature similar to some extent in structure and action with K Phenaminum have the limited use.
