I had fabulous results with these pills, lost 20 pounds in 6 months, got lazy, back to my old ways and get it back just as fast...so off I ventured in supermarkets and other stores where I used to purchase them but to no avail. I thought they were out of stock or something so went back every week. I remember how I went to almost every supermarket/medicine store searching for them... I was so ignorant and actually found out late that they got recalled... PLS BRING EM BACK!

Uum, what about Hoodia form the makers of Hydroxycut? Is that still Hydroxycut? Or something completely different made by Hydroxycut?

I believe that 23 cases in the over 70 millions people that have taken the product are small enough to put my mind at ease. I also believe that if you stay at the RECOMMENDED dosage, that you will be okay. People were probably taking more than they should have.

It would be a shame if the findings prove to be true that this product does harm. Personally I have taken Hydroxycut for about a month now and have been losing weight since. I plan to finish the use of what I have left and will have to find a substitute. Oh well.

This supplement worked great as far as weight loss and energy claims go. I followed the package directions to a "T". However, I started having abdominal pains, then blood in my urine(I know, yuck) and had to be hospitalized for a near kidney failure. My doctor said it was very likely Hydroxycut that gave me these problems, and I'm inclined to believe that seeing as how I've never had any kidney problems before. I'm really glad I lost the weight- almost 30 lbs- but I think if I have to chose between skinny and having kidneys, I'll pick kidneys.

I know a lot of people that tried this product and it worked. I will weigh myself next week and see if there is any difference. I will keep you guys updated.

It is a shame that they are trying to recall it. I think it is the best weight loss pill. I always have porplems with my weight and after trying HYDROXYCUT I lost 24pounds in about 8 weeks. I feel super and beautiful again. Everybody is telling me I look like I am 25 mind you I am 41. Please lets all pray they stop this.
