oh my goodness let me tell you.. i used to live on ephedra based products and be fine.. but xantrex three has a weird effect on me.. somedays i take it and i'm fine but let me tell you i took it one day and was driving to meet my boyfriend and by the time i got this house i couldnt drive.. i could barely breathe.. and he had to go run errands so i decided to go with him so i wouldnt like pass out and die by myself.. (*i only took two mind you*) so i spent the next six hours in his car with him freaking out telling me he wanted to take me to the emergency room and by the way how do you know if you're having a minor heart attack cause i'm definately saying i had a few. But i'm a massochist so i'll probably keep taking them haha..

I honestly LOVE Zantrex 3, but I am also very used to taking ephedra for years..until it became illeagal. I only take 2 in the morning after breakfast before my workout. It gives me the same boost as ephedra did! But I like the feeling of being jittery and knowing I have extreme energy! I DO NOT recommend this diet pill to any one that does not like ephedra or has never tried it!! because it WILL make you sick if you are not already used to it!

I agree with most of you, I have tried this product, and I to felt very high on life I tried it for two weeks straight, and i only lost three pounds. I had a lot of itters, the feeling of a heart attack, and I got realy bad acne from this product. After I stoped taking this product, i gained my weight back two fold. I did like all of the energy, but I think it was a little much. So all i say is if you try this product, try it with caution.

I began taking this about 3 weeks ago because while I've always been thin, I started to eat a lot more and in less than a year put on about 30lbs. I researched Zantrex and decided I'd try it. For the first week I took 4 a day and felt absolutely miserable. I was so nervous and jittery I could barely move. However, since I spent so much money on the pills, I figured that my body would get used to them so I kept taking them. By the second week the side effects were minimal and I actually was up to 6 a day and was absolutely fine. However, I stopped taking them for about 2 days because I was too busy and didn't have the bottle with me. When I just got back on them, taking 2 before lunch, it's back to feeling jittery and sick. Not nearly as bad as the first week, but the side effects are definitely back to a degree. Despite this, my appetite is pretty much gone altogether and like others have said, I don't know if I've actually lost weight but my jeans, which had grown to be so tight I could barely breathe, are fitting so much looser and better now. I will continue to take this product, but I can't honestly recommend it because I can see why for some people the side effects may not be worth it.

I have been using Xantrex 3 for 4 days now. I take 2 in the morning and 2 before lunch. I drink coffe regularly and this product still has a strong effect on me. I do get jitters, hold sweats and nausea. However it usually wears off. You HAVE to eat after you take these pills. I would not recommend taking them before dinner, only breakfast and lunch. I would also recommend only taking 1 the first time you use it. I also did experience the headaches as well. I only want to lose 4-5 vanity pounds and so far it is helping me to do that. I do not get hungry but I make myself eat to avoid getting sick. I usually work out 4-5 days a week but since I have started taking this pill I have not because I believe it will make you pass out if you work out too hard. So if you only want to lose a few pounds I would recommend it and then stop taking them and get back on your regular diet and exercise program.

I have tried Metabolife before as well as pure Ephedra tabs from  (back when they were legal). That stuff made me feel like my heart was going to jump out of my chest and I was extra cranky and gave me a short fuse. So far, my experience with Zantrex is better. The first time I took it my heart felt like it was going a little faster than normal- for whatever reason, that isn't bothering me so much anymore (maybe I'm getting used to the pill?) Anyway, it definately supresses my appetite, I don't reach for a snack every two minutes and I only take one a day (30minutes before lunch). I have a slightly harder time falling asleep at night but thats about it. Nothing too serious- give it a try!

I just started to take this product, and I already hate it. This is my second and my last day. I have never in my life felt so damn depressed. Everything felt horrible. My heart kept beating fast...my head pounded like crazy...I felt like I was on crack!

I've been taking Zantrex-3 for about a month. I take 2 when I get up and have breakfast and I take two 30 minutes before dinner. I've lost 10 LBS. I feel a bit wired about 30 minutes after I take it and it gives me gas. I also get a empty/full feeling in my stomach. Like my stomach is empty of food, but full of air/gas. I feel it's just as good or bad as any other diet aid. It works for some people and doesn't for others. Some have mild side effects (like me), apparently, others have worse side effects.

Zantrex 3... What more can I say? I decided to take my first dose at work. I am a financial specialist for Sprint PCS which means I answer calls from iriate customers all day... Not a good idea with this product. My heart felt like it was going to jump through my throat onto the floor. The effects are similar I believe, to snorting 30 lines of cocaine... and I have never done a hard drug in my life. Every 5 seconds I felt like I was going to emotionally breakdown if one more customer even hinted at a negative tone.. Profuse sweating, jitters, and dry throat. The feeling Zantrex 3 gave me for 48 consistent hours made me feel guilty enough to believe I would indoubtably fail a drug test. However, during the course of my restless night of sleep, I will admit that 2 hours after my dose, I FELT ON TOP OF THE WORLD! Running around a million miles an hour.. My girlfriend asked if I had smoked crack... so did my boss. I felt like I could run coast to coast. Weight loss wise... I've lost 5 pounds in 4 days.. but that could be b/c I'm on Atkins.. which basically means all I eat is chicken, beef jerky, and cheese. In summary, if you want a quick fix, grab a bottle. I do not recommend this to people that cannot handle hard core jump starts. It will give you a heart attack.

I am happy to see that others have experienced the same symptoms that I have while using Zantrex-3. I only wish I had read these comments prior to purchasing the product. During the first week I took the pills as instructed, careful not to take them in the after noon. The pill did give me a since of fullness, but the feeling wore off within two hours. I experienced sleeplessness, night sweats, and headaches. I also felt very anxious/gitttery. I continued to take Zantrex-3 for 2 weeks believing the side effects would subside and I would lose weight. My theory proved to be wrong. I stopped taking the drug after having an anxiety attack. I did not lose weight and will NOT use Zantrex-3 again.

I have been taking Zantrex 3 for six weeks now and I LOVE it! I am not sensitive to caffiene, so that might be why I do so well on it. I have never had so much energy or mental focus! My appetite is noticibly less and I don't seem to be craving carbs any more. I've lost five pounds in six weeks without exercising. I recommend this product to anyone who isn't sensitive to the high dose of caffiene in it.

After having my second child 5 years ago i needed to lose weight so i tried hydroxycut with ephedra. I lost almost 20 pounds. Then poof no more ephedra. So when this product came out I was excited. Well i haven't lost a pound!!! I haven't had the stomach problems, but I did feel like I was going to have a heart attach yesterday. I took 2 pills when I woke up. No More!!! If you want to waste your $ and have a brush with death then this product is for you. If you really want to lose weight, diet, exercise and lots of water are a much better way to do it.

I tried zantrax-3 for the total of 2 weeks and everyday I was sick. I lost 4 lbs from it, because I was so sick that I could not eat. Why did I try the product for 2 weeks? I was trying to get my body use to taking the product. Because sometimes your body have to build up to a new product. I worked out and ate healthy prior to taking the pills. I am not over weight, but have a problem area that I need help with.Diet and exercise alone was not taking care of the problem. Anyways after taking the pills I was scared to workout, because I thought I was going to have an heart attack.(seriouly)...The last straw for me was waking up out of my sleep (which i harderly got) to throw up. STAY AWAY FROM THAT PRODUCT, PLEASE. I see a big lawsuit in their future.

I have been taking Zantrex 3 for 2 weeks now. I have lost 3 lbs. It does give you a great energy boost. The first day I took it, I could not sleep that night hardly at all. Also the first day, I did have one situation, where I had a stressful driving situation, and got severe palpitations, and thought I was having a panic attack for the first time in my life. But since then, I have been fine. I ONLY take ONE pill first thing in the morning and I have not experienced any diarrhea or cramps or anything like the other reviews have talked about. I have had a few headaches though. I would NOT recommend taking more than one pill a day if you want to sleep at night! I don't know if it is worth the weight loss yet or not. But I have been eating whatever I want and barely exercising, and have lost inches in my waist and 3 lbs in 2 weeks.

I have been desperate to lose weight before my wedding in June, I decided on this product to lose a quick 30 lbs. I have been exersizing and trying hard to eat right and small portions. Unfortunately I have had bad results except it has managed to supress my appetite. I have taken 2 in the morning and 2 at lunch and cannot function. I am so depressed I cannot take care of our two kids. My life is good but after these I do not feel anything but miserable. I am cutting down to 2 a day to see if this will help but I cannot put up with this depression any longer. I cannot even clean the house or handle anything. My throat sometimes feels as though it is closing and I want to cancel my wedding and all. This product is Dangerous for some people, use with caution

I have read most of the reviews about this product and for some I can agree. The first week I took it, it seemed more like a laxative than anything else, then I started to feel naucious and anxious. I thought if I stick it out for a week, then the effects would wear off. WHAT I DID NOTICE THOUGH, is that you must eat within 15-30 minutes and it MUST be a meal. What I do now is take 1 a day 15 minutes before breakfast, then eat my bowl of cereal and I am fine. I haven't had any side effects or anything. I realize that I am not taking the full dose, but I am doing something. Depending on if I can remember, I will take one before dinner as well. I have seen slow weight loss, in 3 weeks, I have lost 3lbs, but I am proud of my consistency because when I stopped, I was longing for major coffee. I found myself feeling withdrawl symptoms and wouldn't feel better unless I had a cup of coffee. I am not discouraging you from using it, but maybe try it in a modified way and make sure you eat a MEAL.

I have been on Zantrex 3 for a month and finally figured out why I feel so NUTS! In my quest to lose weight I bought Zantrex 3 and took 6 pills a day. At first I had the same results most of you had. Loose stool, restless nights, a little anxiety at first. After a week it was making me very anxious and at times I thought I was going to have a heart attack. Tightness in my chest with intense heat in my face. I actually thought I was going to die a few times but I passed it off as being a "panic attack" brought on by stress. Looking back this only happened when I would obsess about troubling marriage issues(that happened 2 yrs ago). I would get super paranoid. The scary thing is it could've killed me. If you are going thru any relationship issues DONT TAKE IT! You will get really paranoid and panic ALOT! Ive never had a reaction to diet pills like this one. Plus Ive only lost 8 pounds. Not alot considering the amount I took plus hitting the gym 3-4 times a week. I dont know what it is in that made me freak but if your a sensitive person BEWARE. Ive been off it for 2 days now and Im depressed. Hopefully this will pass soon and I will be normal again. I think Im better off replacing a meal with a good protein shake and cutting down on calories.

okay first of all .. DO NOT take this product... it may make you loose weight but you will get severe headaches, throwing up, and lack of sleep... these are key things to performing everyday tasks... this product is unsafe! waste of money!

I tried zantrex 3 for 2 days. Both days I was extremely tired and exhausted. I did not feel any energy. I got massive stomache aches and I felt like they were a laxative because within half hour of taking them, I was having massive cramps and lower back pain and felt like I couldn't make it the restroom. I also was dizzy and almost felt poisoned because I just did not feel right. Nausea was another symptom. I just followed the direction on the bottle and I swear I will never put one in my mouth again. Horrible product and false advertising. Who knows what other ingredients are in them that are not listed. If they are less than 100mg or grams (one or the other)then they are not legally binded to label them on the product. Never again!
