This is day three and it seems like I'm feeling more hungry. I feel fine, no side affects. Only the first day I had a weird felling headache. I'm just hungry.
My doctor wanted me to stay on one pill for two weeks instead of the one week suggested. So, I've been on one pill for about 1 1/2 weeks. I have wanted to eat everything in sight. I posted a question very similar to yours a few days ago. A couple of people answered that they didn't start to lose their appetite until they were taking 2 or 3 pills. Other than wanting to eat all the time, I've not had any other side effects.
Yes, and it's sad. What is it going to take for me to be able to lose weight. The first 3 days were pretty bad. I felt nauseous, had a headache and it ran up my BP, but the nausea and headache have subsided. Like you, I'm feeling hungrier than I felt before taking the med. Before, I was overeating, due to lack of portion control. I also ate when I wasn't hungry. I thought this medicine would help with that. Sadly, I'm feeling hungrier than I felt before beginning to take the med. I am moving up to 3 a day, which I thought would be impossible because I didn't like the thought of taking the pill 3 or 4 times a day. I don't know, maybe that's how it works early on, then maybe in a week or so we won't want food? Hope so.
