    I have read all the reviews and was excited to finally have something that everyone said would help to lose weight. I have been on this 3 x a day no side effect at all. But I have not lost one pound taking them. I will stay on for a month to see if I lose anything. I work out and play tennis and still nothing is helping. So I am a little disappointed with this drug.

    I have tried everything to lose weight. Spent a couple thousand on exercise equipment, watch what I eat but still couldn't lose weight. I was prescribed these pills plus thyroid pill to boost my metabolism in June 2014. I weighed in today and officially down 52 pounds. I have more energy to exercise. My appetite us under control so I do not eat as much. I would recommend these to any one that ... Show Full Comment

    As part of a weight loss plan along with B-12 shots and watching what I eat. I've always been active but after menopause put on pounds. This has been great - lost most of the weight, have energy, and mood is better. Does sometimes wake me up at night - I take slow release capsule. Other than that, no problems. I see my Doc every week for the shots, so monitored well.
