hiya, they do work i used them a couple of years ago for a few days but had to stop on advice from my GP as i had high blood pressure,they take a couple of days to kick in but they really suppressed my appetite.
Just started last Thursday and on 10's, no side effects so far and seem to have lost 2lbs. I don't know how they work but because I am on them I have conciously being looking at portion control and they seem to be keeping the hunger pangs at bay. I have to go to the nurse in a couple of weeks and then back to the doctor 2 weeks after that. But so far so good.
well done fivegomad, iam on 15s and have been for 7 weeks think lost around a stone, got docs on weds for blood pressure etc, its taken me back to my pre-baby weight which is great (altho baby is now 19months!!) was very slack for the first yr happy just looking after baby etc, not sure i properly looked at myself for 6 mnths! bad i no just caught up with being a new mummy and forgot about myself! iam aiming to loose another 21 lb, then hoping to ttc end of yr. would love to hear how u get on in next weigh in x
