Hi Gang, Just checking to see if anyone out there has tried this prescription yet. I have been on it for about 6 weeks now and find that it works pretty well. Only side effects so far is some less than perfect nights sleeps lately (that could be from a lot of other things though). After six weeks I have lost 21 lbs. I see that there are some people concerned about the safety of this drug (and I think it is always good to be concerned about prescription drugs) but I hope that it turns out to be a safe, effective way to help me lose weight.
