Throat closed up after diet pills.. please read my story
 
Well where should i start? I was the original poster of a bunch of Lipovarin threads. I wanted to post a new thread so people could read my story and what happened. I have never had a problem with diet pills making me feel bad and always looking for new ways to lose weight since i gained 150lbs of extra weight when i got pregnant. Well i reviewed trimspa long and hard after anna nicoles story. While researching i came up with a pill i had never heard of called Lipovarin. They sounded too good to be true. I did weeks of research, posts and everything else. After that time i felt VERY confident on trying them. When i got them i took 1 pill in the morn 1 in the afternoon and 1 in the night. I at first thought i was thinking of things going wrong with me. Its hard to explain how I felt but i felt full to the point where i had a 500lb rock trying to go down my throat all the way to my belly. Felt like something was stuck and i got super bloated. I did get hungry and when i ate i felt awful like i was expanding.. it hurt to eat so i couldnt. That night i had to lay down all night bc i felt awful. By the way these pills gave me the opposite of energy, i was exhauted. So the next day I tried 2 pills only bc i lost weight. I felt even worse. At this time my throat kept feeling funny same as before. I felt my heart racing.. so again another awful night.. well the next day i tried 1 pills which was yesterday.. felt the same.. but worse.. my head started hurting.. i had blurry vision, my throat was closing up and i couldnt breathe well at all.. i at that time called my husband who is an emt/firefighter and then almost went to the ER.. i took benadryl and the sympoms subsided after a while.. i was left with a migrain all night.. anyhow my point is i will never take diet pills again.. i am a mother of a 2 1/2 little boy and risking my life isnt worth it.. i was never a big fan of diet pills but i didnt hesitate to try one if i felt i did enough of the research.. i know a lot of people dont have any reactions to this pill or any but i was once that person.. this is the 1st pill that did this to me and it could have ended my life.. i am not being over dramatic either so i just want everyone to be careful. I needed the quick fix to see results and i did but it wasnt worth the side effects that came with it..
i am very happy for the people its working for, not bitter at all.. i just want to stress to be so careful and if u feel bad dont keep doing it bc u think its gonna get better bc for me it got worse.. from now on im not after the quick fix i am after a long term goal that i will get from working out and eating right. i still plan on trying to nutrisystem in hopes it will teach me portion control and everything else... i will still post as often as i can and i wish everyone good luck.. i wanted to share my story bc i know there are people out there who feel like crap from these or other diet pills and they think its going to get better, it might but for me it didnt.

to all the user of lipovarin.Do not get discouraged by how someone else had reactions she is telling you just to be careful . and letting you know what happedned to her so far with lipovarin there are no know side effects. these pills are working for others if you go to the obesity boards. i know a few people on them and have lost weight with no side effects. if you read snowbunnies post she was scared and nervous to try them before she took them. so this doesnt help when you are already nervous to take them. snowbunnie i read your post.
you said you took one at night . you are only suppose to take lipovarin at 10.00 and 3.00 please refer to the bottle. this is the second post i have ready where lipovarin is not working there are more replys from others that are workings so to all dont be discouraged by one post. i never heard of a pill makeing your throat close and if this happended you should have went to e.r to report it. sorry it didnt work for you. but i am trying to let others not to be scared to try them at this point there are no know side effects. good luck to all.

The truth is, diet pills are a short term solution at best. It is not logical to expect to continue with a lifestyle that made you fat in the first place (what you eat + exercise or lack thereof). Sucks, but true :jester:
Diet pills, when they work, might help you reduce weight - but if you think you can carry on eating chips and burgers and fries and beer and stay skinny, you need a new logic chip in your processor. :rolleyes:
What works is a lifestyle CHANGE. Hellooooooooooooooooo! Anyone listening? Failure to change what goes in your mouth (diet pills notwithstanding) will result in diet failure. Who controls what goes in your mouth? [U][I][B]You do[/B][/I][/U]. When you are ready to change what goes in your mouth, you will be ready to succeed on a weight loss plan.
*** :eek: ***um...I'm getting off my soapbox, now. :jester: [quote=sspicey]i never heard of a pill makeing your throat close [/quote] It's called an allergic reaction. Pills can do it (ever heard of penicillin allergy? :D ) and so can food (wheat, dairy, etc.) and environmental stuff (pollen, dyes). It's not realistic to expect that in the wide world, NO ONE would be allergic to this particular diet pill. :rolleyes:

csoar2004 , no actually never heard of, "ever heard of penicillin allergy? anyhow my basic point was these pills may work for some and not others and if any pill did this to me i would have been in e.r no questions asked!!!
good for you if you program is working for you. i do agree its all in you. you need to eat proper food and not bugers fries etc.. or the weight may never come off its all in the head once you are set to loose weight you will make it happen makes sense?

Re: Throat closed up after diet pills.. please read my story
 
Hi all - Snowbunnie I applaud your honesty. I am VERY proud of you and I think in many ways you should thank God you got those symptoms right away. Those symptoms may have very well saved your life! I wish you well sweetie. I was waiting for your results - though i have been lurking and not saying anything about it - to see if I would order those pills. I am SO glad I didn't. I never took pills before and I was dying to try something to get me going as well. But you know what - this is a lesson learned - it's not worth ending your life for all this. I finally realize that it's true when they say there is NO miracle drug or pill. It has to be the natural way. I am not against pills or an endorser of them. I am a normal average person who really was waiting to see what I should do. Though inside me I knew there is no way that doing something that's a quick fix would be the proper way. But being overweight I was so desperate to hear Snowbunnie say they are awesome. It was her posts I was following and it was going to be her reaction that made my mind up. Even if we are all different - it was my own self-test - to see if she was fine on them I was going to do it too.

Spicey I also found your post to be rude but I won't come down on you because it may just be that we read it that way. My feelings about pills are EVEN if they work - NO ONE should be encouraging others to try them. We should stick together and encourage each other in other ways. Would you want to be responsible if someone got really ill on them and you encouraged it? I am not saying YOU as in you, I mean all of us. Who cares if they work? So what if we all lose 85 lbs and then one day drop dead? You have to understand something else that is basic and I just finally learned that too. IF these things worked - NO ONE WOULD BE FAT. NOT ONE person would be fat because NO ONE on this earth would be afraid of paying even 1,000 dollars for something that worked. Sure you may lose some weight or even all of it - but it's not going to be only due to pills. It's going to be by effort as well.

A very close friend of mine was on Stacker 2 for 3 months and she lost about 50 lbs. She has a little girl and boy! She passed out on the floor in her bathroom while doing #1. Thank God she came to and called 911. Her doctor realized though indirect and nothing to link it - that it was most definitely the pills. She had vertigo for one year afterwards too. She was lucky that that's all she had. So even if they are ok while you lose weight - it can hit you anytime. I also have a close friend who just lost 60 lbs. by exercising and eating right in 9 months. At least she did it the healthy way. JMO - let's help each other :-)

[QUOTE=sspicey]No, never heard of 'penicillin allergy.' What is the fat flush plan?[/QUOTE] :eek: :eek: NEVER heard of it? Trust me, spicey, it's a nasty little allergy. :(

The Fat Flush Plan is a wonderful, healthy way of eating that 1) detoxes the liver (your major fat flushing organ), 2) balances blood sugar (to control cravings), and 3) gets rid of the whites (sugar, flour, rice, pasta, etc.) in addition to highly processed foods (cereals, box dinners, etc) in favor of fresh whole foods, whole grains, lots of water. The FFP was written by Ann Louise Gittleman, a nationally reknowned nutritionist. I highly recommend it!

SNOWBUNNIE AS I SAID I DO APPLOIGIZE AND SORRY I CAME ON SO STRONG. I GUESS I AM JUST TRYING TO SAY IT MAY WORK FOR YOU AND IT MAY NOT BUT I DONT FEEL THAT ITS GOING TO HAPPEN TO ALL OF US.
MANY PRAYERS TO YOU. THE BEST WAY FOR ANYONE TO DIET IS TO DO IT NATURAL. WORKOUT AND EAT LESS FATNING FOODS.

Where were you when Snow was looking for someone who knew something about Lipovarin? Now you suddenly show up to defend it? She put in a lot of time and effort trying to make an informed decision.

BTW: Snow, I owe you an apology. I think I found the site where you read about Citrus Aurantium toxicity (Dr. Weil?). I thought for sure that you'd been duped by a competing company in disguise. You [I][B]are[/B][/I] a level headed girl who doesn't get caught up in hype.

davitude, TO ANSER YOU QUESTION I WAS DOING A RESEARCH MYSELF ON LIPOVARIN. I NEVER SIGNED UP ON THESE BOARDS FOR MANY REASONS I WAS LOOKING FOR ALL THE INFO AND INGREDIANTS ON LIPOVARIN MYSELF.
THERE AT THE TIME WAS NOT ENOUGH INFO ON LIPOVARIN AT THE TIME AND TODAY THERE STILL ISNT MUCH BEING THEY LIST ON ALL SITES THER ARE KNOW SIDE EFFECTS AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO SNOWBUNNIE SO MAYBE SOON WE WILL HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS PILL IN THE FUTURE AND THE SIDE EFFECTS . I DO KNOW Citrus Aurantium IS ANOTHER WORD FOR
SYNEPHRINE. WHICJH IS SIMILAR TO THE MU HUANG THAT IS BEING BANNED SOON HERE. I CANT AY THIS PILL IS WORTH A TRY AT THIS POINT BUT SEEMS LIKE IT IS WORKING FOR SOME PEOPLE AND NOT FOR OTHERS. MY OPINION IS TO LOOSE WEIGHT THE HEALTHY WAY. DIET AND EXERCISE.
NO PILL IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW IS A MIRACLE PILL.

NikkisNYmom 03-25-2004 07:10 AM

Re: Throat closed up after diet pills.. please read my story
 
Hi Dav...how are you? I too think Snow is a very level headed girl. I would think that EVEN if she did continue the pills. My post wasn't about others who are taking it and are successful. Whoever is taking it - please know that. My post was just an honest post and it was MY point of view. It doesn't mean I don't like people who take it. NOT AT ALL. I am proud of them too. But I applaud Snow's honesty in her experience.

It seems Spice thinks because I applaud Snow - I am against the pill or that I think it doesn't work. I am not working for any company to either be for or against Lipovarin. Personally, I couldn't care less about it. I came here wanting to lose weight and wanted to find out what worked. More importantly if it was safe. I think she not only misread my post a little BUT A LOT. I never ever meant the pills don't work. In fact, I SPECIFICALLY said they might work but who cares. The point is - and this is a FACT - MANY of these things work but there ARE delayed health issues because of them. How do I know this? I am no genius and far from perfect - but it's common sense. That and there are 3 doctors in my family - 2nd and 3rd cousins who live in Connecticut and Rhode Island and one in NY (my uncle - a distant one but still family). They all said the majority of these pills cause damage in the long run. I didn't care what they said - I wanted to try something. But with Snow's reaction - even if my reaction was different - I do think MORE OFTEN than not - there is something that goes wrong. No one is saying they don't work. But who cares if they work - if you area going to be ill eventually. You don't have to try something to know that it's not healthy for you. Clearly, any foreign medication in your system isn't always better. Sometimes we luck out and come out of it perfectly healthy - GREAT! But even one loss of life is tragic if you ask me. There is some logic involved in this thinking. OF course I'd LOVE to lose weight and lose it fast - I am just as desperate as the next person - but I am not willing to die for it. JUST MY OPINION...

Re: Throat closed up after diet pills.. please read my story
 
Spicey - I apologize if you thought I meant anything against you, I DID not. So I hope that is settled. But I don't think you even read my post at all. You just decided to be angry without even reading it. I specifically said perhaps WE READ IT WRONG. I also specfically said that the pills may in fact work. Maybe you should reread what I wrote? Your opinion is your opinion and mine is mine. Everyone is responsible for their own life. And it is my choice to support people in other ways then tell them that pills or ok. Fighting for the rights of a pill vs. the rights of a human - well you can guess who means more to me. If she decided the pills were good and she felt great, I'd still support her but if she continued to take the pill feeling sick all the time, I would encourage her to stop. That's what friends do and you know that's what you would do as well. You have a good heart - I didn't mean anything against you. But you seem SO into supporting this pill and it struck me and many others who emailed me as strange. It's just a pill - it doesn't need your support. I read Snow's post and I listened and responded supporting her actions. Before and after. Your posts seem like you are out to prove her reaction is just such a rare thing and it's not. And because of a post supporting these pills - someone out there may get really hurt. I am not saying tell everyone to not do it - I wouldn't do that either. But if someone says they got sick on it, the LAST thing I would do is tell others - well that's just her reaction - you should still try it or not judge it. Heck EVEN one person getting sick on it is enough for me to get scared. Wouldn't you be scared? Anyway, don't read too much into my thinking anything about you. You seem like a nice person. Let's all relax - I'll start first - ok? lol

Re: Throat closed up after diet pills.. please read my story
 
The Fat Flush Plan is a wonderful, healthy way of eating that 1) detoxes the liver (your major fat flushing organ), 2) balances blood sugar (to control cravings), and 3) gets rid of the whites (sugar, flour, rice, pasta, etc.) in addition to highly processed foods (cereals, box dinners, etc) in favor of fresh whole foods, whole grains, lots of water. The FFP was written by Ann Louise Gittleman, a nationally reknowned nutritionist. I highly recommend it!

I highly recommend the book (check with your library or fave online book source). I'm sure if you google it, you will find more info. (would LOVE to give you a link, but this board only allows *** or gov links)
Oddly enough, I first discovered the FFP while standing in the grocery checkout line (YESSSSSSS! Magazine impulse buy pays off!!! LOL). Because my daughter had just announced her intention to wed in only 4 months, and that it would be an outdoor picnic kinda thing with everyone in sundresses :eek: :eek: :eek: I knew I hadda do SOMETHING before then. :rolleyes:
Anyhoo, the FFP not only helped me lose weight, but because it balances blood sugar AND hormones, most of my perimenopausal symptoms disappeared and now that I'm menopausal, I feel like a 20 year old. (well...at least my inner brat feels like a 20 year old. heh heh)
I've tried weight loss pills and other diets. The FFP is what ultimately worked for me. :D
