Makes you an ass....causes fatigue for me severe lost 6 lbs in two weeks but was on virtually no carbs. Trouble getting out of bed in the am. Caused severe acne. It really didn't help much as the low carb was doing everything. Using Ribose now with better results and natural no jitters or side effects. I am 49 believe me don't even try it.

I have been taking 1 37.5 tablet every morning for two weeks. I have lost 10 pounds already. I am sticking to a 1000 or less calorie diet and drinking 80ozs of water everyday. I completely stopped drinking sodas. I am hoping to get the next 40 pounds off with working out 4 days a week for 30 mins and sweating. I am lucky, I have had NO side effects and feel great.

I've been taking phentermine for 22 days now. I lost 15 lbs so far. Dropping 10 lbs in the first 11 days. My Dr suggested staying around 1000 cals but I've found it works better for me to stay around 800 cals. Jittery once and a while buy not bad. I'm happy to find something that actually helps me loss weight.
