I have been taking zantrex 3 for a few days now. from readign the abouve posts, it might seem that zantrex is a pill with terrible side effects, however, I used to take another well known diet pill ages ago and talk about side effects! with zantrex3 i can barely feel the pill working, i do have a bit mor eenergy andam a bit less hungry but trust me, this pill is light weight compared to other fat burners. I have no trouble sleeping, no unconfortable side effects. If you drink coffee each day then this product will not be too hard core for you, i feel more energized drinking espresso than with this product.

Hearing so much HYPE about this product, being a gym head, I purchased it. I am aware that with nearly any product or supplement there might be some side effects and after taking many products with ephedra, I was use to some side-effect that you either adjust too, or they go away. I have been taking this product for 2 weeks, and I can assure you, I have not had a night of sleeping without waking up, tossing and turning, not being able to go back to sleep, and once I am sleeping, I experince night sweats. I am so happy to review these comments from other, many describe the same effects. I have been exhausted as a result of tossing and turning all night for nearly 2 weeks. After leaving work, I am in a strange mode, tied, but still energized from the product. This is a very dangerous mode to hit the gym, you are prime to pass out or have an accident. I am in no way overweight, but just wanted to shed some pounds to define my abs. I can no longer take this product, I must be able to get some sleep in order to perform my duties at work. A big plus to this product, every night I wake up to use the bathroom, and it reminds me of a time when I was 16, if you know what I mean, but I am single so there is no one in bed next to me, so its more of a bother. This is another side effect, increased trips to the bathroom to urinate. This product scared me, I have never had problems sleeping, or waking up and not being able to go back to sleep, and I have never had to urinate so much. As far as the weight loss, I have dropped a few pounds, I can tell, but its not worth staying up all night. I am SO TIRED, I cannot believe I have not slept well in two weeks, I think my average nighly sleep time may currently be 3 hours. I dont suggest this product.

Zantrex 3 is a Dangerous drug. It almost caused me to have a heart attack. I want to warn other people about this drug. I also want to let the proper folks know about this drug, Do not use Zantrex 3......

Speaking as a guy who took a number of ephedra-based supplements and a number of prohormonal supplements a few years ago-- Zantrex 3 is dangerous. I didn't have the palpitations that some people claimed to have, but in addition to being wired all day (almost annoyingly so) I found myself being not only unable to sleep for HOURS beyond when I normally sack out, but also being extremely paranoid and depressed. Night sweats, tossing and turning, horrible outlook on life. I have read product reviews about becoming depressed or manic while using supplements and thought that it was all psychosomatic-- people getting psyched out because they were afraid of trying the new supplement. I have never had these sorts of problems until trying Zantrex-3, and I assure you that THEY ARE REAL. I have dealt with very, VERY mild depression off and on throughout my life (more than a pessimistic outlook, less than something that would require treatment), but both times that I took Zantrex 3 I found myself feeling absolutely hopeless and irrationally overwhelmed with life (note: Both times I took 2 pills before breakfast and lunch, but not dinner. I figured that it would wear off by bedtime if I did that. Ha!). I spent the better part of last night almost crying about things that don't bother me in the least this morning. That's messed up, weight loss or no. I don't know what it is about these pills that does this to me, but I don't ever want to experience it again... nor do I want anyone else to. Do yourself a favor and pass these things up.

I tried Xantrex-3 to try to lose 10lbs the easy way. The first day I took 2 tablets at the same time. During the whole day I felt really jittery due to all the caffeine. At night I felt extremely sick, my heart was pounding and beating extremely fast, I had hot and cold sweats, my head was aching and I could not sleep. I felt like I was going to die. Anyway, I realized that it was because of my sensitivity to this product. To some people 2 pills may not have any effect, but I recommend for those of you who are adamant about trying this to only take 1 pill at first. Even when only taking one pill I still feel jittery, but I rarely drink soda w/caffeine. So, I recommend finding a better pill with less side effects or better yet just a better diet and exercise. Good luck!

When I first bought the bottle of Zantrex-3 I tried taking the 2 pills before my meals, and even after my first dose, I didn't even get to eat the meal, because I had become so ill with hot and col sweats, vomiting and a migraine that I couldn't even get rid of with my prescription Imitrex injection and other pain medication, I had to go to the emergency room for help with the pain. Now, I know I am going to sound stupid, but due to the high cost of the pills that I couldn't afford in the first place and I hated to waste them, and was thinking, welllll... What IF.. it wasn't the pils. what if it was a coincidence.. and What IF.. I just take one pill and not even at every meal..a little is probabaly better than none right and will probably still help me lose weight faster than if I took none at all right, especially because I am losing weight already from eating so well and exercising so consitently anyway and I just wanted something to speed it up even more is all... SOooo after a few days of these mind games I played with myself...I tried taking just 1 pill before a meal,,, only 1 pill and lo and behold I got a migraine and and naseaus and hot and cold sweats again for the whole day , just minus the emergency oom this time, and I didnt feel well the next day, residually even! So, anyone who says the other people Only got ill becasue they took too many..I say.. for some of us.. 1 is many! Zantrex 3 is a waste of money and made me feel sick faster than when I was on ephedra in a more obvious way.

I take two a day, when I get to work. I get a lot of energy (caffeine'll do that), and I don't particularly feel hungry anytime soon afterwards (though the bottle DOES say, eat within about a half hour). I can't really say whether they've had any effect on my weight loss, since I walk for about an hour a day (long before coming to work), so that's probably got a lot to do with it too. I do want to note one thing, though, for the people reading these reviews. I have one advantage over a lot of the people commenting here - I actually know what a "niacin flush" is, which IS one of the side effects the Zantrex-3 bottle warns of. Most of the bad symptoms that have been mentioned are just that -if you go buy yourself a bottle of niacin and take it, you'll get the same effect. This includes a coppery taste in the mouth, red flush and heat in the skin (first day I took the pills I looked in the mirror and thought I had got sunburned, then remembered...), mild nausea, and aches. This is not to say that these effects are harmless (NEVER take a big handful of niacin - you WILL regret it), but that they are explainable, and the bottle does actually note that they might happen. So, that's my two cents. I just wanted to make sure that this side of the story got told.

I've never tried a diet pill until zantrex 3. I thought what the heck? I was fine the first few days, taking only 1 or two servings. Right now I'm only taking 2 pills in the morning and I definetly see a change in my eating habits. I don't eat that much at all but even if I feel hungry I don't want to eat because I'm so naucious. The caffiene only makes me extremely restless, so much that I'm annoying my roomates. I feel to sick to exercise sometimes. I'm always in the bathroom for whatever reason, take your pick, nausia and vomitting, diarrhea, or taking a pee. At night I have extreme nausia and headaches. I started out feeling that I don't care what the side-effects were, I wanted to lsoe the weight. Now I'm not so sure. I still have yet to weigh myself offcially, when I hit a week. But so far I'm not that plussed about the product. I feel almost that I have to use it because I spent so much on it. I wished I had researched before hand, but since I've never done it before, it was something I had to experience for myself.

I have been taking Zantrex-3 for about 3 days now... I suggest that if you are taking this product that you only take 2 pills a day... For the 3 days i have taken Zantrex-3 I started out taking 2 pills with a glass of water 15 minutes before i ate a meal in the morning.. and then i took 2 more pills at night before dinner, and I had a severe Headache, and i had Nausea, i urinated a lot more, and i had hot sweats very badly. I passed out at work... I followed the directions... I am not an over wieght person, i just heard some good things about Zantrex-3 and i wanted to lose a couple pounds, so i bought it... I am 5'5 and i weigh 145 lbs, and i wanted to lose so weight.. I did notice a lot more energy... This is a good product that i have noticed so far, i would just recomend you to start out taking only 2 a day...

I am 22 year old mother of a 2 year old daughter... I am getting engaged, and my fiance is a body builder. We are haitian (black) and where we come from hips, butt and curves are the ideal body image, so I know my man likes my curves, but still, I see all those skinny women, with the fake boobs and etc, and I feel a little intimidated. So his protein supplier told me to try Zantrex-3 (and it came with EXCELLENT review) .... so I did try it, I took 1 pill a day for two days (yes 2 days only. As soon as I took the pill, I had shivers, I felt energized, and I was no longer hungry.... I WAS SOOOO HAPPY.... on the second day I woke up in the middle of the night, I had trouble breathing and my heart was beating out of this world (I was having heart palpitations)... I called 911 because at that time I thought I was going to die, and I said I ain`t leaving my littel girl on this earth with no mommy..... I am ok now... but I wish I would of done some researche before taking the pills... AMEN I only took 1 pill a day and not 6!!!! WHAT THE??? I have been on the net all day and have not read of anyone who took 6 pills... (hmmm.. maybe because they are not alive to tell of their story!!!!!!! ???!!!!!) I rate this product DANGEROUS and DO NOT RECOMMEND IT...

Gave me a splitting headache by the end of the day, so I quit using it. It was probably the caffeine - I don't drink coffee and maybe drink a coke once per month.

I am not someone that is overweight or even slightly heavy, but I just wanted to tone up and maybe lose a few pounds for a trip coming up in March. I read about the product, didn't really compare it to anything else and thought, what the heck, I'll just try it. I have been using it for about a week. The first couple days I only took 2 pills a day and I felt no side effects. So a few days later took two pills in the morning before breakfast, and two pills before dinner. DO NOT DO THAT! I felt so sick. I was involuntarily shaking and I was extremely hot and had a massive headache. Eventually after about an hour I was back to normal so I went back to just 2 pills a day, much better. I work out about 5 days a week, and I take the pill to cut back little snacking that is unessary. I never skip a regular meal at all though. After only a week of using the product, I don't know if I have lost acutal pounds on the scale because I never weigh myself, but I feel like I look better, my jeans are fitting nicer and I feel better about myself. I guess I have noticed more energy that helps me with my workouts but I feel that the product is working. I would recommend this product to someone who is willing to exercise as well as eat sensibly to get the full effet of this pill. Do no use this pill and never exercise. The pill should not just be used so you can be lazy and let it do all the work. If you want to lose a few pounds maybe 5 to 10, I would use this and follow the direction, do not skip meals, exercise reguarly, and start SLOW! Do not overdose on these pills it will only hurt you and not help you. Be patient, this is no miracle pill, just an enhancer to help you reach your goal.

Hi there, I have taken Zantrex 3 for 3 days only. I have definitely noticed the increased energy, which is good. The side effects for me is incredibly similiar to taking "Dance Pills". You do get increased energy but after a while you feel a bit sickly. Although I'm hoping this will pass. I'm going to try to take for a month. I only take 2 a day because I feel 4 a day would keep me up at nights.

I took two bottles of zantrex and saw no weight loss results. I did have an increase of energy and a decrease in appetite, but it was not enough to cause weight loss. I used the pills to help me stay awake at work during the night. It was a good energy booster but that was all I got from it. The only side effect I had was feeling jittery if I didn't eat for a while after taking the pill. Energy=10 weightloss=0

I've teken Zantrex3 before and I lost about 12 to 15 pounds. I did have mild side effects like nervousnes and unable to sleep, but it went away in about 2 days. I have started again and so far its been good no bad side effects. I have noticed that it gives me a nice pink glow on my cheeks but that just makes me look healthy. I dont know how many pounds I have lost but its working I can tell.

I tried Zantrex-3 for a month and I gained about 15 pounds of pure fat. I felt ill all the time, could't stay alert but did not sleep well either. Maybe this stuff works for some people, but it has caused me to have to work even harder to reach my original weight goal because I have 15 additional pounds to lose. Why did I keep taking it, because they said NOT to look at the scale!

I have been taking Zantrex-3 for two days and have noticed a large increase in energy and stamina. After my first dose, I did have stomach pains, but only mildly and not after that. I have already lost about 2 pounds. I highly recommend Zantrex-3.

I have tried Zantrex-3 for about 3 weeks. It does boost energy as well as curb your appetite. It makes me feel full and food appears unappetizing. I have followed the directions and take it 15-30 minutes before main meals, but only one tablet, not 2 as the bottle suggests (I am sensitive to large amounts of caffeine). I have lost about 5/6 pounds. I have not exercised the past two weeks, due to being really busy at work. If you take this product, use it according to the directions! It will work.

I have tried Zantrex 3 for one day as of right now. It does not give me heart palpitations and dizziness like other supplements. It has increased my energy quite a bit. As far as an appetite suppressant, it is not all I expected, but it does curb my cravings for sweets and carbs. I am in shape and also exercise regularly and try to eat pretty good. I tried this only because of some of the reviews I have read and I want to drop a few pounds, (not many though)even though I am not "overweight" by any means. I was not looking for a "magic pill" or anything like that, just something to control cravings. I would recommend this if you want more energy and are just trying to lose a small amount of weight. It was a bit on the "spendy" side for me, but I am glad it didn't give me the bad side effects like other supplements have in the past that were close in that price range. I also hear Lipovarin is very good, but I was not willing to spend that much money for a SMALL amount of weight loss.

I've only been taking Zantrex-3 for 3 days and it lives up to the hype. And I have had no side effects. The people that are getting side effects are taking too many a day. You only need 2 a day not 6 a day. So far I have lost 5 pounds on Zantrex-3. In closing Zantrex-3 Rapid Weight loss is no B.S.
