Reviews for Fastin to treat Weight Loss
"I started taking this pill when I was 218lbs and I now weight 135 lbs! I had thyroid issues too that originally caused the weight. But once managed I still had a hard time getting the weight off. This pill literally changed my life! Yes it does speed up your heart, my dr did an ekg before hand to make sure it was safe to take. But the results are beyond worth it. And if you take it with water or juice and a banana, you'll be good to go until dinner time! It took roughly 6 months tops to lose the weight, and I've maintained the weight loss for about 3 years now. I still fluctuate a little due to my thyroid. But I just start back on it if I need to lose again."

"Fastin is an excellent dietary supplement for me. In the morning, right as I wake up, I take the little guy. The pill tastes like what I would imagine what baking soda would, but oh well, I am not sucking on it. It takes about 20-30 to give the first kick. That kick is the rush that says "I need to get moving or I need to get to the gym." The first time I took the pill I did get a little jittery and nauseous but once I started working out and drank water I started to feel fine. About an hour in I hit phase 2. Phase 2 is the spunk and mood booster. I feel awesome and amazing like I know what I am working for. Again, first day I felt a little dizzy and euphoric. Then there is phase 3 the come down. Drink water and eat a solid. I lost 100lbs."

"Fastin has helped me lose 10lb. I started off with a half a pill and not doing full pills so my heart and body could get used to it. All I can say is I love this diet pill. REALLY HELPED ME."

"I took this and it's the best thing I have ever tried. The first couple of days I went by the directions then I doubled the dose. And I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks. It did make me feel very jittery and my heart rate was going 90 to nothing but I was determined to lose weight.! And a little information DO NOT I repeat ( DO NOT ) take Fastin before you get in a tanning bed. Tan first then take it. It made me very very strange in a bad way. I'm no doctor but when I increased my dose I had the shaking and the increased heart rate. But It never harmed me."

"I am borderline average/overweight for a 5'3 woman just wanted to lose about ten pounds. Extremely effective but as the other reviews state two for me was way too much! Uncontrollable shaking but the heart pounding was nothing less than frightening."

"It really works, you must eat before Fastin, then go to the gym, if you feel your heart hoes quick. Just take half pill and everything will be right. I'm 35 year old and with gym and my half pill of Fastin I feel perfect in my weight of my 15 year's past."

"I started Fastin 30mg from my doctor on May 19 2014. You need to change your lifestyle not just pop a pill and be done with it. Because if you don't change, the weight will return. I started at 285lbs in one month I lost 25lbs and feel great. I changed myself with habit changes and exercise. I told myself that when this weight is gone it's staying gone, so I change my lifestyle and you can do the same."

"I just started using Fastin and I like it better than other diet pills I've tried such as Hydroxycut because it doesn't make me feel sick/ nauseous. BUT it definitely makes my heart rate skyrocket, so for the first couple days I would only take half a pill at a time. A full pill makes my hands tremble and I can hear my pulse in my brain."

"I took a pill this morning with some tea, and while I was eating breakfast I noticed my heart rate sky rocket, I don't know if this happened because I took fastin on an empty stomach or what, but this is a little scary! It literally feels like my heart is going to jump out of my chest! At first I didn't think I could be reacting to this drug so quick but apparently it's a very quick release type of pill. I can say that I'm not hungry and didn't finish my breakfast but at what cost?! Maybe I should try taking a quarter of the tablet, but I think I'm a little to scared and will probably throw the bottle away.. what a waste of $40 oh well better 40 bucks lost than a heart attack. Also I bought these over the counter at a Rite Aid."

"I have been working out for the past year and a half. I've taken many kinds of diet pills and let me tell you this is by far the BEST thing. I've lost 35lbs and I feel wonderful. I do feel a little jittery but I can handle that. It's great and I hope it never goes away. Love it!"

"I have been taking fastin for a little over two weeks. I started at 150 and im currently 140. Fastin causes me not to be hungry as much and gives me energy. I do feel a little jittery sometimes and have a funny taste in my mouth. Overall im pleased with my weight loss and will continue using fastin ."

"I started taking Fastin a few days ago after I read so many good reviews...I must say that I did take the advice of so many others and started with half of the pill. It seemed to put me in the best mood and my energy level went through the roof. Not to mention..I wasn't hungry at all. Yes it did make me feel a bit jittery so I drank a lot of water and had to pee quite often. Don't drink anything with caffiene in it while taking this because it makes you even more jittery, plus if you work in the heat be careful because I felt like I was having hot flashes but wow...it is definitely worth it. Lost a couple of lbs already. Well worth it for me."

"After suffering from bulimia for many years and not being able to control my binge eating I started taking Fastin. I only take 1 1/2 pills a day (I'm only 115 lbs and not looking for significant weight loss) and that is enough to help me fight my urge to stress eat. In fact when I was taking 2 pills a day I found myself forgetting to eat. I still feel a little jittery after taking them. "

"I was stuck at the same weight for over 2 weeks. I was working out over 60 min a day. I decided to try Fastin and within days started losing weight again. I have been taking it for 5 weeks and have lost 10 lbs. That's good enough to get my approval. It really helps me not be hungry throughout the day. And gives a noticeable increase in energy. I have noticed some jitteriness about 1 hr after taking it. But it does not last long and to me is worth the weight loss."

"Phentermine has worked very well for me and my own personal situation. I was formerly anorexic/bulimic with a habit of severe calorie restriction, phentermine has worked amazingly. My metabolism went into hibernation after 5 yrs of damage & I gained 180lbs post rehab. By taking phentermine daily, I have the metabolism of a nomal 22 year old girl. I lost 30lbs/90 days initially. Now I'm losing 30lbs/month. Occasional moments of feeling weird/adrenaline rush is worth it."

"When I started taking this medicine in December along with Metformin and Simvastin I lost 66 lbs. I started at 306lbs and now I weigh 240lbs. I am unsure if the drug is having any effect on me any longer - I will know when I see my doctor again. Perhaps I am just at a wall for the time being. Anyhow I think it works great."
