I took it for a couple months a few years ago, till my husbands best friend found out, then he took them from me and flushed them. He said someone in his family had taken them and had heart trouble afterwards
I dont know if that is true, but i did stop.
Have you gone to your doctor? In high school, (of all times, when I DIDNT need it) the doc prescribed me a weight loss/management drug called Phentermine. I took it for two years straight. And It comes off fast! I was a mat-maid(wrestling manager) in HS and we were always going to tournaments and the guys would eat at a fast food place after weigh-in. I think I ate more Big Mac's in that year than I care to say(and ate fast food almost every day), but I NEVER gained an ounce, in fact I kept losing.
of course the only thing is, even after I quit taking it, I was in such a bad habit of eating out, that I kept doing it, and gained some back.
*i wanted to add - after taking Phentermine for so long, it has caused me to have a very irregular heartbeat, which i still have to this day.
If you take it and develop a healthy eating style and a regular workout, I can only imagine how much more it would be possible to lose. Plus when you quit taking it, you would be in the habit of eating healthy and working out, which is the recommended way of losing weight.
Also, when you do it the 'hard' way, you are waaaaay more likely to keep it off, then if you have help, from things such as diet pills.
Plus you keep other things healthy, like cholesterol and blood pressure!
