Hello my fellow Lipozene reseachers. I'm a 29 year old woman from New york with two kids and a fiance. After watching and reading all the promising weightloss and no health risk commericials and internet ads I finally gave in and ordered the Lipozene. Giving in was the worst thing I ever did. I started taking Lipozene in middle/end of 2012. When I first started taking the Lipozene (diet pills) I did loose weight, but in the midst of losing weight I also gained TWO Gallstones almost the size of a golfball. So, one night I started gett these instense pains under my right breast and under my right shoulder blade. It felt like the pain just appeared out of nowhere. The first thing that came to mind was I had a bad case of heartburn and gas so, I chewed 2 tums and layed back down. I didnt lay down for a 1/2 of sec before the pain hit me hard. When I say that was some excruciating pain it was some excruciating pain. Pain to the point that I started vomitting and passed out for a couple of secs. I think that the pain shocked my body and I fainted. I woke up screaming and holding my chest still vomitting. My boyfriend panicked and called an ambulance. I was still vomitting at the time.( On my way to the hospital in pain I realized that I forgot my purse with my job insurance info the abulance driver decided to NOT only put on the sirens, but seriously stopped at every stop sign, but thats a different story). So, I finally reach the hosipal, waited for 4 or 5 hours (maybe less) which felt like a lifetime for them to tell me I have to very Large Gallstones in my Gallbladder that has to be removed immediately. Now, I refused the surgery at that point because I really wasn't sure what Gallstones were and the doctors were being so secretative. Me being confused not knowing what to do I polietly told them that I only had one week of work left on that specfic site and I will reschudule for the surgery.. NEGATIVE!! I went for a second opinion at another hospital. unfortantely I do have the Gallstones, but wait for it.... I ALSO WAS WITH CHILD AND DIDN'T KNOW. WHICH SHOCKED MY BRAIN AND CONFUSED MY INTELLIGENCE BECAUSE I WAS JUST IN THE PREVIOUS HOSPITAL NOT EVER 24 HRS BEFORE. (this is when I realized why they were being so secerative. they were going to do surgery and tell me that I was pregnant later).. They also explained to me what Gallstones are and how the procedure is done, but I couldn't surgery until after the pregnancy. After the 3rd time in the hospital the pain seemed to stop, until I was 6weeks pregnant and had another painfull attack which forced me to make that horrible decision to get a pregnancy termination in order to get the procedure done. Which was by far the most depressing situation for myself and my boyfriend. It would have be his first child.. While home depressed for a little over 2 months I started thinking about what I ate or took to cause this illness. I eat very healthy and stay away from fried foods and when I do eat fried foods its cooked with VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.. so, I kept thinking and thinking and still nothing crossed my mind, until I walked past my table and saw the bottle of LIPOZENE AND THEN IT CLICKED. I started researching to find others with a situation like mine.. What should do I do?

 How did you not know you were pregnant??? This "weight loss drug" is nothing more than a fiber pill.  HOW did you not know what gallstones were??? They are stones in the gallbladder and need to be removed.  Sounds like crap to me - doctors being " secerative" really??? As for your intelligence - try using a dictionary once in a while and you have children???

IF you want to lose weight work out, eat healthy (not fried foods regardless of how they are cooked) FRIED IS FRIED! Lipozene is a scam period and you fell for it. Get your kids, your fiance, put on walking shoes and walk.  It is free and it works! Get active and stay active that is what you need to do.  Here is some information on this scam drug.

Several companies selling products containing glucomannan have been disciplined by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for misleading or exaggerated claims pertaining to the health benefits of glucomannan supplements.[17]

Glucomannan is an ingredient in a variety of dietary supplement products marketed via television advertisements claiming to aid in weight loss. According to the FTC, there is no clinical data supporting many of the manufacturer claims and several companies have been determined by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to have, at some time, violated the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The companies include Vitacost,[18] PediaLean,[19] Herbal Worldwide Holdings,[20] BioTrim,[21] and others. The company Obesity Research Institute, the marketer of FiberThin, Zylotrim, Propolene and Lipozene, settled FTC charges that their misleading weight-loss claims violated federal laws by agreeing to pay $1.5 million in consumer redress
