Zantrex-3 Severe Reaction

Hi! I started taking Zantrex-3 this morning and had a severe reaction. I took the suggested dose of 2 tablets 15 minutes before eating. (I've taken Phentermine before when I was on a weight loss program and under a doctor's care.) Also, I do drink coffee; but didn't have any this morning....I didn't get nervous or jittery or anything like that. What I did get scared me (until my co-worker found this web site). My entire body turned red approximately 20 minutes after taking the pills and lasted for 1 hour! I also started to itch! My ears flammed and I felt like my skin was on fire, I could actually feel the heat coming from within onto my skin!!!!! I know the bottle states that a temporary side effect is skin flushing, reddness or itching and should subside in a matter of minutes. An hour is a whole lot of minutes to have skin the color of a Pointsettia!! I did drink cold water in attempt to cool down my body. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, if I cut down the dose to one tablet twice a day, will I still get the REDDNESS? Please let me know, because I am scared to keep taking this!

Re: Zantrex-3 Severe Reaction

You should investigate the weight loss section of Healthboards - but it's because of the Niacin in Zantrex 3. I have been taking it for about a month and have had the same reaction approx 3 times. Another health board user red-flagged the niacin as the culprit for me and i recommend you look it up online - there are multiple reports that is causes redness and flushing of the skin. As far as i can tell, the redness noted in the reports was uncomfortable but a fairly common and otherwise harmless reaction.
I went through the same problem! hope this helps!!
