    Hello all,,, can anyone tell me if they have had a loss of appetite with this medication, and does it make u feel bloated?

    It never made me feel bloated but were all different give it time some have stomach issues with it. The idea is to help people not eat as much, weight loss helps many improve there bs numbers. How long have you been on it, I know for many it gets better.

    The decrease in appetite I consider a wonderful side-effect!
