I am just starting the full dosage this week. I have only lost between 5-10 pounds and that was within the first couple of weeks. Just wondering if it will get better. I can tell it helps some with cravings and I am eating less... just seems like the scale isn't budging.
I found that the best thing this medication did for me was help me handle my cravings. I changed my food intake and exercise. What type of changes have you made? I have done 2 different food plans. Both have worked. For the first year I counted calories. I kept it below 1200 calories a day. After that, I now count carbs. I do a low carb, high fat food plan. It may take some experimenting to find what works for you.
