Reviews for HCG to treat Obesity
"I did lose weight as long as I continued to take the drug. When I stopped and since then I have had swollen abdomen, stomach pain, water retention in general (which I never had before), decreased urine and then increased urine. No energy since stopping and that was never a problem before. Trouble breathing but as with any diet drug I've observed (I had hoped this one was different) you gain back twice as much as you lose as soon as you discontinue it. I just hope it hasn't done permanent damage to me."

"I have done the HCg injections and lost 40 lbs. I did loose some muscle but I kept the weight off til I had significant stress and reverted to bad habits. THat's my bad. What people need to understand is that you need to follow the HCG plan by dr SImons. No, you cannot eat hamburger, no you cannot have a glass of wine everyday, no you cannot eat watermelon - at least in phase 2, 3. People fail at this diet because they refuse to adher or do not read about the original diet and follow it. But it works when you do it right. And I felt better on it than off it - it helped with my shoulder pain."

"I don't recommend HCG prescription injections for anything. I had the worse headaches that I've ever had in my life. The right side of my face started sagging and I was very weak. 1. ER visit , I was in the trauma unit because they thought I had a stroke. Wrong! 2. ER visit, diagnosed as Bell's palsy. Wrong! 3. ER visit, Lyme disease! Wrong again! It was the HCG! It may help women lose weight but definitely not worth the side effects!"

"I did 40 day injections and found the diet easy to stick to if you plan your meals, pre weigh and bag about 1 week ahead. I had headaches sometimes as a side effect but Tylenol worked. I started at 195 5' tall and weighed 163 after stopping the injections. I waited 6 weeks and now weigh 167 and am beginning a second 23 day round of injections. I am convinced that the weight will stay off. I will continue with each treatment until I get down to 125"

"Along with a VLCD, hcg appears to be very effective. It was manageable, but such a restrictive diet that typically goes along with using HCG as a diet supplement is hard. Its definitely not a diet for the weak! That being said, it seemed effective. I lost minimal muscle, even though I lost a significant amount of fat/water."
