Anyone tried SlimQuik?

That diet pill specifically designed for women... Does it work? Would I be better going with Alli? My diet doesn't have a lot of fat in it to begin with, but I can't stand drinking so much water (I know, I know... I just feel sick if I do).

  • I personally wouldn't try Alli- right on their web site they warn that you should carry an extra pair of clothes with you; this is because the drug makes you go to the point of urgency that you can not make it to the toilet. My boss tried it and she only took it for 5 days and when she barley made it to the potty she stopped!!! On the other hand my sister takes it and has had no problems... I have tried Slimquick and I stopped taking it after a few weeks as I became scared that I was never hungry... That is not normal or healthy I would rather just try to loose weight the old fashioned way as opposed to feeling scared... Obviously though medications work differently in everybody.  Good Luck

  • I've heard the horror stories about Alli. Slim Quick really took your appetite away completely? Wow... I understand the scared feeling, but did it work besides that?
