QUESTION 12 A 30-year-old man with a BMI of 59 has recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. In light of the man's lack of success with weight loss programs in the past, his care provider has prescribed sibutramine (Meridia). What instructions should the nurse consequently provide to this patient? “This drug will help you to lose weight without having to exercise or change your normal diet.” “Take this drug once each day on an empty stomach.” “Take a dose when you feel like you are tempted to binge on food.” “It's best to take a dose of sibutramine after each meal.” 1 points Saved
