This med really works! I have been taking it for 12 weeks. When I started, I was 227 and now I'm 189. I have losted 38lbs. This is definitely a mircle pill! The only side effects i have was constipation and thirsts. So I start eating more fibers and drink more water. This change helped me eat even better than I was before I had the side effects.
