    I took this drug about 1.5 years ago and lost 28lbs. I am now 5'5 and 187 lbs. I'd like to try to lose about 15 more lbs but I am worried that this drug may not be for me. My BMI seems to be right at 30. Also, I noticed that when I came off of the drug I began to have anxiety attacks which my doctor seemed to beleive was somehow related to this product. Is anyone else taking this at my sim ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this pill for almost a month now, and lost 11 pounds. At first i felt like a zombie, so my doctor told me to take only half the 37.5 mg pill with breakfast. Now i have tons of energy, i exercise about 30 -60 min a day and stick to a low calorie diet.

    I have lost 4.5 pounds in 2 days. But I can NOT sleep at night. It gives me tons of energy but I am a zombie right now. I am hoping that goes away and I will be able to sleep again. I am going to try to take it earlier. Dry mouth. Sweating. But hey, I did this to myself. I am not having cravings, have to remember to eat, and I do exercise....so I have high hopes that the sleeplessness will ... Show Full Comment
