February 03, 2011Reviewer: Abigail in Massachusetts* I had a baby about 8 months ago and needed something to help me lose my baby weight. I have been taking Hydroxycut for about 6 weeks and it works pretty good. I have lost 20 pounds but I am on a low carb diet and try to work out 5 days a week so I am not sure if I would have lost the weight regardless of the pills or not. The reason I give it 3 stars is that when I went to the doctor my blood pressure was 180/100 and I took a dose before my appointment. I normally do not have high blood pressure so probably after the bottle is gone I will stop taking them. I would follow the directions start with one pill and etc. I do get headaches sometimes but that could probably be cause of the high blood pressure that I am assuming they cause. I started by taking the regular Hydroxycut, not this version and I like these ones the best. The regular version makes my feel shaky and these ones do not.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulAugust 27, 2009Reviewer: Eileen in California* Good stuff! If you're not used to caffeine then you want to follow the instructions and slowly ramp up the serving dosage. I'm used to a lot of caffeine and starting with half the dosage with no ill effects. I seem to be losing a few pounds in last week or so. This product like many other thermogenics will heat you up fast if you take the recommended dosage of three pills so it can really get you going. Easy to swallow pills
