    Angry mini thins? anyone ever took these to lose weight?

    anyone ever had any bad experience with mini thins or know someone that has? i have, my little sister is 25yrs. old and i use to be skinner than she is and now she is skinner than me and for the last year ive been asking her what she is doing to lose weight, she keeps saying shes not loseing weight, well one day she was at walmart with me and she said she had to sit down and i went with her to sit on a bench on the outside of the store, she was saying she was sick and all of a sudden she started haveing seizers i called 911 and by the time they got there she had 6 seizers, i had to lay on top of her to keep her from falling off the bench when the ems got there she had them so bad (seizers) she had urinated all over her self, they took her to the emerg. room and couldnt find anything wrong. she later told me that she has been takeing mini thins and that then told me the ephedra made the seizers. she knows this is what done this, she is now takeing them again she says she has to stay skinny, i weigh 133lbs and she now weighs 100lbs she use to be 145lbs. has anyone ever taking these or know someone who has? she says she is hooked on them. thanks for listeng!

    I took them alot about 8-10 yrs ago. I never had seizures or anything, but I definately felt like I couldn't stop taking them. I thought if I stopped taking them I'd have no energy at all. They are extremely dangerous and I was stupid to abuse them. Now that I have 2 girls of my own...7 & 5...I am very careful about stuff like that. I hope your sister will be alright. When I finally did quit taking them, I didn't really have any withdrawals. I was tired for a couple of days. The psychological part of kicking an addiction is the hard part once you get past the physical detox....if there is any. Good luck. Be there for her..she's gonna need ya!!

    One of my friends almost had a heart attack taking mini-thins...and she's only 22 years old. They told her that if she kept taking them, her insides would look like that of a elderly woman. It takes a toll on your body, especially your heart and your blood pressure (remember, high blood pressure can cause strokes).

    I used to take them everyday and yes at times I got very dizzy to where I felt I may faint My friend also used to take them alot she was 24 and went to the doctor and said her blood pressure was so high that it is a miracle that she hasn't had a stroke yet. She contiued to take them until they became illegal and stopped selling them.

    Yes, a friend of mine took them all the time. She had a heart attack at 25 years old.
