No, Sibutramine is the generic or chemical name of meridia. Sibutramine is also known as sibutramide hydrochloride monohydrate is a medication used in the treatment for overweight. Sibutramine is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance in the United States.

Sibutramine also known in usa as Meridia and in Europe as brand name Reductil (available in capsule 10mg and 15mg).

Sibutramine is also sold in India under brand names Obestat, Sibutrex, Sibutrim and Obego

Meridia was approved for use by the FDA in 1997.

No. This combination is not recommended.

Adding Meridia (sibutramine) could potentially exacerbate these risks even further. Again, this combination has not been shown to be safe.

What is the difference between 37.5 and 30 mg tablets of phentermine?

The yellow phentermine 30mg capsules and the blue Phentermine 30 mg capsules act the same. Blue Phentermine and Yellow Phentermine both have the same activistic component (i.e. Phentermine Hydrochloride). Both of these capsules are manufactured by Eon Labs. The blue/white variant is a nonproprietary for Fastin and the yellow is just a nonproprietary phentermine. As for the 15 mg capsules, they are plainly a glower dosage form of Phentermine that is factory-made by Eon Labs. The 37.5 mg Phentermine is a nonproprietary for Adipex-P that is factory-made by Purepac. The only dispute between the marque name (Adipex-P, factory-made by Gate Pharma) and the nonproprietary is price. The ingredients are the same. The only real differences are the facet (color and pulverize vs. miserly pellets).
