  Rating
Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Severe Side Effects
  
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   weight loss
Dosage & duration:   35mg taken 2 times per day for the period of 4 weeks
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
  
Reported Results
Benefits:   A total of 20 pounds lost in one month.
Side effects:   Although I reached my goal weight, the drug made me very restless, anxious, moody. I also experienced headaches, and falling asleep was not easy while on this drug. Dizziness, light headed.
Comments:   Take one 35mg pill in the morning and one after lunch to curb appetite. I fond myself able to stay more active and run longer at the gym. It's a toss up if the results were worth the side effects. It's obvious that a drug this strong that makes you want to run a marathon and not eat can't be good for you!
