I have been taking Bontril for 6 weeks now and it has been wonderful! I have lost 12 lbs so far and looking forward to dropping more. I have plenty of energy throughout the day but no jitters. The only problem I have with it is my sex drive has diminished quite a bit.

This pill has only made me hungrier. I was previously on Adipex and Topamax for weight loss and lost 52 pounds. But now that i'm on Bontril I feel like Im only going to gain it back =[

This medication works but be careful. Because I was eating less food I wasn't replenishing my vitamins and minerals as quick as I was burning through them. I ended up being hospitalized overnight because I started having symptoms for very low potassium and calcium which can cause heart arrhythmia among other things. I also experienced restlessness and rapid heartbeat while on it.

I do not know what's wrong with my system. But I have noticed that the medication isn't working for me at all. The ease of use, was simple. I have not felt the "effectiveness", even when I paid close attention to what I was feeling in my stomach. Regardless how I had taken the medicine, it wasn't working for me. I had to struggle to not to over eat, that was harder than exercise.
