Worked for me
Lost 25 lbs in 2 1/2 months. It took a week but then I noticed I didn't have sugar/carb cravings much anymore. Had a headache once or twice initially but ibuprofen worked for that and it may have been from my reduction in carbs and sugar and not actually from the pills. After that it was easier to eat healthy so I reduced the pill to once a day in the afternoon. It gave the willpower I needed to eat cleaner after about a week. They say it either works well for you or it doesn't work at all.

Best weight loss drug on the market
Loss over 25 lbs in 3 to 6 months , for me this weight loss was life enhancing as I felt so bad before, no significant side effects, mild headache but that could be from reducing the carbs when I got started. It just works
