Quoting Keeper of the Cheerios:" Oh I'm on it for something else, just wondered if anyone had lost weight on it because I learned that it could be a side effect after starting on it. "
If its something your prescribed because you need it & the befits of it out way the risk then that makes since. I was just stupid & asked for it because I seen it as an easy way to lose weight. But I was smart & looked into the risk & decided against it. My friend who took it & lost weight didnt even know the risk, so I just wanted to share that! =) good luck
