Comment:
I took this drug for 6 momths back in 1986. I lost 40 lbs. I felt great. I had more energy than I ever had in my life. I looked and felt fabulous. The moment I stopped taking the drug I began putting the weight back on. I not only put the 40 lbs back on ,but put on an additional 20 lbs. works wonders while on it. Awful let down when you stop taking it.

I have been taking this pill for 6 months and have lost 50lbs. No side effects. Helps me make wise choices when it comes to eating. But how long can I continue with this diet pill? Has anyone taken it more than a year straight?
