  • Excessive weight gain for me. I gained 85lbs in the four months I was on it and the second I stopped I stopped gaining the weight.

  • My 5yo & I have both been on it a few times in the last 18 months. For her, I really didn't notice any side effects. For me, being a little hungrier, maybe a little crankier (but I was also pms-ing every time I was on it) - and speaking of pms-ing on it, my cramps were practically nothing!
