    Dr cycles me on for 5 days and off for 2 days. It keeps your body from building up a tolerance to the medication. Take a month break every few months along with cycling on/off each week. Lost 77 lbs, kept it off during the month long breaks. I have 30 more lbs to loose, eating low carb and calorie, healthy fats and lean protein. Exercise 4 times a week.

    6/25/15 Starting weight was 273 7/2/15 weight 258. I've lost 15 pounds in one week. 30 minutes of dance central a day, lots of water(no sodas or juices), eat less food. side effects are dry mouth and extreme thirst. I'm going to do this for 3 months and see if I can get my sexy back.

    Aside from pretty severe dry mouth all the time, I've had no side effects: it just makes me "not hungry." In the 2 & 1/2 months I've been taking it, I have lost fifteen pounds with consistent outdoor exercise. I have only fifteen more pounds to go. Hopefully, I'll have taken care of that by the end of the summer!
