|Dosage & duration:|| || 35mg taken 2 times per day for the period of 4 weeks|
|Other conditions:|| || none|
|Other drugs taken:|| || none|
|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!|
