I would not recommend this to anybody. The headache is not worth it, OMG, I just took some Tylenol and it eased away within 20 minutes. Don't take this unless you want a BAD headache. I felt shaky, it didn't give me any energy, it decreased my hunger, but heck, that probably gave me a bad headache too. I don't think anything on the market is safe. The hospital said that weight loss pills don't work, they just give you bad side effects, and to me, if you gotta deal with crap like that, it ain't worth it.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
How long after you stopped taking them did you still have the side effects?
