Reviews for Ionamin to treat Weight Loss
"I took this tablets back in the late 80's/early 90's. They were very addictive and I was put on a higher dose. The establishment I acquired them from was a 'diet' clinic in North East Surrey. I would politely call them quacks. They had NO regard for my actual weight - I was in fact 8st 4lbs . Frankly, had I have been 6st I'm sure I would still have gotten them. Did they work? Yes, without question. I went 2 solid days without eating a single thing. My only intake was cups of tea. The downside was chronic insomnia which last long after the tablets ceased. I believe these tablets were at the root of the onset of my life long problem with IBS. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Plan meals, eat sensibly and exercise - you will lose weight."

"I took'm 1978. One a day. I wanted to loose 30 pounds 3 months after my delivery of my second child. I took diet pills back on the 60s and 70s, by doctors with no restrictions. I was 26, my body tolerated them well. Not Mentally, I feared gaining weight. I was hooked. It did affect me mentally. Yeah, It gave me energy. Energy any mom with two kids and a baby that worked, kept a house clean Etc.. I was tired but down to 130 on two months, But I couldn't give them up. I took them for over a year got down to 114. Tight muscles and looked great. But I crashed after the divorce and ended up on a pysc ward with severe depression, don't take them!! I got cancer a few months later. They are as addictive as speed. Loose weight the healthy way!"

"I started Dec 2, 2016, a 5' 8" female at 322 lbs. Exactly 14 days later, I am now at 310.6 lbs. I take a 15mg capsule, 2x a day. It seems I have to tell myself to eat. The only side effect I've experienced so far is dry mouth, so I'm drinking lots of water to help with that. The first couple days I had increased energy after taking it, but that seems to have tapered out already. I am hoping it continues to work, as I have struggled with obesity all my life. Even after having cancer, I have been struggling."

"I have to agree with everyone here. I was prescribed this medication years ago and I lost 2 sizes, got down to a size 10/12 and kept it off for 2 years until I got pregnant with my son. My only side effects were dry mouth, not always wanting to sleep (because I took them too late sometimes) and extreme energy! It was the best medication for weight loss I've ever used and now I'm looking to lose the weight again. Although just a note to everyone, if you are going to do something like Ionamin, it's best to exercise with it...that helps to keep it off. I'm going to see my doctor/nutritionist next month!"

"This product helped me lose 30 pounds in three months! It was absolutely amazing and truly the best product I have tried. I had energy, no cravings and enjoyed smaller portions. Taking this off the market was terrible for me and I gained back a lot of the weight over the years. I had such success with this product."

"This medication worked wonders for me. I went from 230lbs in September 2008 to 175lbs in February 2009. When I took it, it just made me almost forget about food. I would sometimes forget about eating until late in the day and just ate because I knew I needed to. The only bad part was that it stopped working before I got to the weight I wanted, but I haven't gained the weight back as of June 2009."

"This product was awesome. I went from 192 lbs in September of 2005 to 138lbs in January of 2006 without any form of exercise. I was working 2 jobs and it gave me more energy than anything else I've ever tried. Some days I would have to force myself to eat something because I just wasn't hungry. Then, they took the stuff of the market (in Canada at least). Neither I nor my doctor can get it anywhere. I didn't have ANY side effects other than losing ugly fat. Bring this stuff back! I know plenty of people who tried this and ALL loved it with great results. Since being off Ionamin, I'm back at 174 lbs. There is nothing on the market like Ionamin. Please bring it back."
