... want to get a "jump start" on my weight loss. Unfortunately, after reading all of the nasty side effects (along with some potentially life-threatening ones) I am scared to death. I have been taking it for a week not but honestly, I have not experienced any side effects... not even the dry mouth. My question is, how soon do side effects generally show up? I just don't want to do anything to harm my health and am considering not taking them anymore even though I don't have any side effects. Can you all offer some advice/insight on your experience?
