How long does it take to work. Still want to eat and no suppression of cig cravings
I am on week 2- will be starting week 3 on WED of this coming week- so I am taking 2 pills- I actually have MORE energy so keep at it! I only had one day- maybe 3 or 4 days in during the first week that I was really tired and spacy but that was it-
I also take B6- that might help-
I drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning but that is it for caffeine- no soda ever- I am still hungry- this is not a miracle for sure- but it helps me stay on track- I have lost 7lbs since the 22nd of FEB when I started:) I hoping to be at 10lbs by this coming WED- 2 weeks in- we will see-
I'm slightly ahead of you on schedule and the tiredness and spacey feeling went away for me around day 4. I didn't notice a suppression in cigarette cravings at first because the medication made me feel a little edgy which made me want one. But that has passed and I don't really think about them anymore. I don't have cigarette aversion just no drive to smoke one. Good luck!
