Side Effects Herbex Slimmers

I have been on Microval for the last 8 years. I have just started using Herbex Slimmers Tablets (Women 40 -60 years). Two questions? Are there any side effects from these Slimming tablets, and is it safe to use with contraception tablets? I am always very cautious when taking any medication. Thank you.

Hi I would like to know why can't diabetics use Herbex? Does it bring down the sugar levels or what?

I see here people are rude and they are not even helping. If I read well the label of herbex says that it has green tea and all I know about green tea since I have always been drinking freshpack green tea is that it will make u urinate and poo more because it helps with bowel movements. Now herbex even has another addition which helps with metabolism so definitely if you eat well then drink herbex you will definitely visit the loo more often.the reason why most of you are having headaches and dizziness is because you are not taking enough water. I drink at least 3 litres of water a day.and I rarely get headaches neither do I or have ever felt dizzy. You will definitely have issues with sleeping if you are not eating well. When you want to lose weight you need to make sure that you exercise well at least 30 minutes of exercise, using stairs instead of an elevator, walking instead of driving in town, skipping rope, doing laundry etc. But however the bigger part of weight loss is what you eat. Eat at least 4 to 6 small meals a day. Eat at least 4 to 6 potions of fruits and vegetables. Stay away from fast foods and fizzy drinks or junk food then definitely you will see results. Herbex is an add in helping you to lose weight. It's not supposed to be the main part of the plan.

I don't know why people have to get personal and insult others. Maybe it makes people feel superior because they themselves have a low self esteem and need to use insults and foul language to make them feel better. Anyway I just wanted to say I was on Herbex for 4 months. I developed an ulcer, a germ on my stomach and inflamation of the liver. I was hospitalised for 2 weeks. I'm not sure if it was the herbex that caused it or something else. My weight also fluctuated up and down. Now I'm just following my own diet and excercise.

MOST OF YOU NEED TO LEARN HOW TO SPELL AND LEARN HOW TO ACCURATELY WRITE A SENTENCE AND PERHAPS LEARN HOW TO SPEAK ENGLISH WHILE YOU ARE AT IT!!!!! How shocking that you are all almost illiterate! Obviously you are all fat as well as stupid. These products work as a detox as well as a fat burner and appetite suppressant...headaches are normal, if you are drinking the right amount of water, frequent urination is normal too, and the water should aid in avoiding the headaches. A balanced and controlled healthy diet will also help as well as fitting in an exercise regime. Dizziness will come from not eating properly or drinking enough water. And as for the gynaecological problems some of you seem to be facing...go to a doctor for God's sake!!!!

I am an English teacher and I know for sure I am going to have nightmares tonight. Not about wanting to get rid of 5kgs, but because the majority of this English-speaking country cannot apply what they are taught in schools and are too lazy to read their setwork books and copy essays from the internet. I am not overweight, I just have a little bit of a stomach and came on here to check for a lazy way to burn the fat away since gym is not always possible with all the marking (of retarded English) I have to do. I guess our kids are doomed to speak poor English, and be overweight. Lord have mercy.

You are also a retard...Don't sweat the small shit.... You call me small minded....AND......... You talk about the bigger issues in life, yet you are on a site filled with comments for people who want to lose weight the lazy way...get your fat asses into a gym and eat properly and whilst you are at it go back to school or try and at least read a book once in a while...because you, like the rest of these idiots are also grammatically challenged!!!

It amazing how small minded people worry about little things in life like spelling errors,if something does not affect you,do not worry,there are more important things in life to worry about.there are civil wars,child molestation,human trafficking,,bigger things in life to worry about

Hay Mandy. Im not a professional but i used to weigh 96kg and now i weigh 84kg. Losing weight is hard, but not impossible. I became a vegetarian four four months just to teach myself discipline before i felt ready to change up my diet. I then went on a no starch/ no carb diet for a couple of months and got back amazing results. All i ate was reasonably small amounts of meat and loads of veggies and fruits. In the end i lost 12kg in about 4 months. Food is delicious but can kill you if overeaten, so teach yourself discipline first then go for the challenge and im sure u will lose tons!

Hay Amanda. 13 is pretty young to start relying on pills to make you thinner. You are very lucky because you have your youth my baby. First try involving yourself in fun activities such as swimming or netball. Slimming medication should be a last resort for such a young baby like you.

Monique, it wouldn't be fair to him if you did that. You will be incouraging him to be lazy and rely on medication and short cuts when it comes to metaining his health. He is very young and has a youthful advantage over weight gain. Please try involving him in fun activities such as swimming or karate e.g before resorting to pumping meds into his vulnerable body.

I am 22 years old and I have been using herbex for a little over a year now, I use the tea these days as I have seen it works better than the fat attack syrup. When my diet is normal (eating healthy meals 3 times a day it works). The thing is I am a bulimic with anorexic tendencies so my weight is always fluctuating, for me using herbex is more of a control thing... I use it mostly to maintain my weight so I keep it within a certain range. I hope herbex doesn't have any side effects because on top of the damage my eating disorders are already doing to my body it'd be tragic if herbex is doing damage as well. Goodluck everyone using herbex it does work, promise.
