  • No, but I'm kind of afraid to take diet pills. I haven't heard anything good about them. I've considered at one time.

  • I haven't, but, I know that it blocks most fat from absorbing. It will cause diarreah if you eat high fat foods, so it works as a reminder and deterent to eating bad.

  • I've used it and it works really good. There were times when I ate high fat foods and I was scared thinking I was gonna go on myself and it didn't do that for me. But everyone's body reacts differently to meds. So try it at home first is my advice.
