  • Yes, I tried it. I gave it a try for approximately 3 times. I was so dizzy and out of it, that I had to actually go to ER. It was an awful experience and one that I never wish on anyone. Please give other options serious consideration before you try that.

  • I HAVE TRIED IT BEFORE AND IT DOES WORK. YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT AND QUICKLY, BUT WHEN YOU STOP TAKING THE PILLS IF YOU DONT WATCH IT YOU WILL GAIN IT BACK JUST AS QUICKLY.

  • I took it for three months. I lost 35 pounds. It gave me headaches, sleeplessness, and eventually the mad energy you get wears off. When I stopped taking it I gained all the weight back.

  • I am not going to take this. My doctor mentioned it to me and I looked it up online and it looks evi. If all you care about is weight loss then ya great but if you care about your happiness and well being then it doesn't seem worth it.
