i borrowed a week's worth of this med from a friend that just quit taking it cuz she reached her desired weight.. well i took the 3 times a day dosage of 25mg.. and its wonderful. i have lost 11 lbs in this one week. i am going to doc to get on it officially. i did have a mild headache alot of the time.. but is worth it to me to shed this much weight in this time period..
