    Well i did some searching about lipo 6 and found this article from a guy who used it for the first time http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/youropinions.php?opinionid=5997

    I was thinking about starting on a fat burner but this kind of scared me. Is there really any safe but effective fat burners out there or was this just that stupidity of the individual in how he took the fat burner?

    :wtf:
    the label says to take two capsules 2 times daily, first about half an hour before breakfast, and again with lunch... and it goes on to say to take one capsule 2 times daily to start, increasing by one capsule every 2 days until you get to the maximum (2 caps, twice daily) dose... wtf is this guy saying about 3 times daily?
    mine didn't say that...

    i've been following the directions and haven't had any problems at all whatsoever...

    Hahaha what a dumbass, ephedra was implicated in 6 deaths I think, most of which were due to misuse or pre-existing heart conditions. More people die every year from Tylenol than were ever killed by ephedra.

    I like the people complaining how they took the one lipo6 pill and couldn't go to sleep. the damn label also says don't take 6 hours before bedtime :slap:

    If you take something that makes your body/metabolism act differently during a certain amount of time, there's always a risk that something happens.
    Caffeine may cause arythmia, avoid it ! :noes:
