ggeo17 saidBTW, re sexual side effects: I heard that it actually increased libido to varying degrees in various people.
I was on it for a while when a doctor (who I stopped going to after this since it seemed like he didn't give me a thorough examination -- like he was just giving me a drug to try for no apparent reason) prescribed it for ADD (I finally found out the cause was mild narcolepsy). I didn't experience that...
But, since my sister's a nurse, she gave me all the information in her books on the drug that she had. While it did list increased libido as a side effect, it also listed impotence. I'd hate to be the guy that experienced both of those side effects!
So, I'm normally one that maintains weight pretty well -- the huge weight gain I've experienced in my life (at a high of 309 last year) has been VERY gradual -- rather not noticeable until you compare the longterm (which is why, when I got back to eating somewhat of my old ways for several months, I only gained 5 pounds). Well, in less than 30 days, changing nothing of how I was living, I gained 10 pounds.
It definitely doesn't work for everybody. I wouldn't ever try it for weight loss.
