I started taking this medication last week, I weighed in at 337 lbs I am 5'9. This medication has suppressed my appetite but after taking it I want to take a nap... not sure why but I get sleepy then after my nap is when I get energy. Hope this medication works as I am looking to be under 200 lbs by this time next year.

This medication made me lose 12 lbs. a month during the 3 months I took it. The downside is it made my heart race, blood pressure increase, I just couldn't sit still. The upside, I lost weight and my house was never cleaner because I stayed busy.
