If I was losing weight, I would have been willing to put up with painfully tingling feet and constant dry ... Show Full Comment

At first I was pleased with a few pounds lost, but the headaches and stiff necks aren't worth it in the long run. It also may increase the ringing in my ears. No thanks. However, a smaller dose may be effective with less side effects.

I used this for 2 months and lost 32 lbs, however I became anxious, depressed and completely not myself. When I stopped taking qsymia I had withdrawal symptoms, rapid heart rate, more anxiety.
