    I took this pill twice in my life. First time from April 2013 until July 2013. Then I had to stop because I had gotten pregnant with my daughter. It worked wonders! I freaking loved it! I lost 60pds. in 3 months. No side effect what so ever. After I gave birth to my daughter, I gained some weight back with the pregnancy so I wanted to go back on them. The first refill I got, I broke out on my palm ... Show Full Comment

    My husband has been taking this drug for 2 months now and is almost done. He denies mood swings, but i cannot tell you how excited I will be when he is back to himself again. Moody, attitude changes and only 18 pounds lost in 2 months with diet and exercise changes as well.

I always always overate at meals and then snacked constantly on junk food throughout the day. The amount of calories I consumed in a day was probably twice the "suggested" amount. When I take phend ... Show Full Comment

    I started out at 289 pounds! Have been on this medicine for 9 days and have lost 13 pounds. Increased energy is GREAT! Haven't felt this good in years. Maintaining my usual moderate excercise but now have no more increased appetite. I am maintaing a 1200 or less calorie diet. This is a lifesaver for me!
