Although it works, the bowl movements are inconvienient and you are best to stay home, rather than have a work/social life. Also the drug is extreamly expensive. Suits a person with a lot of money, who has the convienience of their own toilet! This would be the ideal drug.

This drug is only one I lost weight on however the downside is the loose bowels, gas, etc that you may have.

Anyhow, I have lost 5lbs with Xenica ... Show Full Comment
