This drug is poison! It is not safe and many people will not notice side effects until it is too late to stop the damage.

I have smoked for 40 yr's. My husband and I both are taking this medication. We are no longer smoking. I have not become sick or tired. We have been on the medication for 2 weeks. It has really worked for us, we are so glad, we could never quit without help.
