    Works wonderfully, overall I lost 15 pounds (6.8 kg). However, I did experience dry mouth and rapid heart rate. The dry mouth was tolerable, but my resting heart rate stayed around 20 bpm higher than average. Unfortunately, I had to stop taking it as a result.

    I started taking this a week ago today. I have lost 5 lbs so far. I have had no side effects from this, except for dry mouth, but I need to drink more water anyway. I am 51 and going through menopause. I ave tried everything and nothing else worked. I am very pleased so far.
