When I was a senior in highschool I weighed around 170, had nearly no body fat and was sporting a highly tuned 8-pack! =)
Unfortunately, I got lazy and now at age 21 I reached 230lbs... I began taking these honestly because they had no ephedra and were really cheap on ebay. however, I now weigh 190lbs after a couple months. I do not eat with these, it doesnt hurt me, the only thing that messes with me is a highly elevated heart rate probably because i have high blood pressure, which has gotton much better since losing this weight.
the pill is different for everyone. if youre young like me you might can afford to stretch the limits a bit, older, definitely follow the directions. =)

Reviewer: Mrs. Greatful~ from USA
My mom started taking stacker 3's years ago as a way to get more energy for getting things done around the house. In turn, I would occasionally take them too to help her. In doing so, I can say that you need to follow the directions and eat properly. I used to take it on an empty stomach and would get the jitters like you wouldn't believe - towards the end I would crash and crash hard.Years later, mom and I both take them when we need to. They're a great way for extra energy for any occasion like house and yard work, latenight homework...ect (although this is not their intended purpose!!!) I had my second child 8 months ago and I am very unhappy with the extra weight I haven't been able to loss - so I've decided to start walking and taking Stacker 3 regularly in addition to eating portions. I have been doing this for only a little while, but so far, I have not had an experience like my past ones. I've always loved this product despite the side effects, but even they didn't bother me much. Every person is different, so don't judge it by the words of others - try it for your self. Just use it accordingly!

I recently had my first child and gained nearly 80 lbs in the process. I was in the process of trying to drop about 15- 20 lbs when i found out i was pregnant so needless to say i have quite a few lbs to loose. I am 5'6 and 205 lbs my goal is 135. I started taking stacker 3's about a week ago and i am pleased to say that i have not had any weird side effects...Tons of extra energy and i feel great. i take 2 a day after breakfast and lunch...i also try to work out most days a week. with that said i do HIGHLY recommend that you follow the instructions on the box...there is a reason why they are there. i took stacker 2's about 2 years ago and i can tell you from experience that you will probubly experience some nasty side effects if you dont. I havent noticed any change in my shape yet but i will be sure to follow up when i do...expecting great results

I have been taking 2 stacker pills a day for about 10 days and I have already lost 8lbs and a jean size!!
You really have to follow the instructions and ease into the full dose or it will make you feel sick to your stomach.
P.S. My friend is using the Stacker 3 also and she has lost 5lbs with no side effects, and she could take them on an empty stomach. I dont recommend that though.

Reviewer: Matt from New Orleans, LA USA
This is the ideal supplement to start an exercise regimen. I use "Stacker 3" in the morning to get my metabolism kick-started. I am aware that my heart rate is a bit increased but it's nothing distracting or irritating.
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION! Good eating, portion control, walks, balance in conjunction with "Stacker 3" are a guaranteed recipe for success.
It works!February 28, 2010
Reviewer: Chris from Alaska
The product actually works very well. Like all "diet pills" this is not a "poof" and fat is gone pill. If you don't work out with it or at least take a brisk 30min walk it'd be pointless and the excess energy has been known to make people sick. I would not recommend it if you can't handle caffeine or have heart problems. Loosing weight too fast can also have negative health impact on your body, so use it with smarts. I stand by this product. I took it at first as a skeptic but they proved me wrong. It's a great boast to get you off your workout plateau.
good for meFebruary 22, 2010
Reviewer: Mallory from Columbus, OH
I am 132 lb , 21 year old female who tried stacker 3 looking for extra energy and appetite supressant (and 5 lb loss couldn't hurt). I work out at least 5 times a week and try to eat healthy.
It shocks me to read about side effects from other users since i have been on stackers for nearly 3 weeks now and have not had any bad side effects.
It is exactly what I am looking for... giving me energy when I need it without the shakes . Keeping me sharp in class and extra stamina during workouts. I have no problems sleeping (even after taking it at 9 pm), but I never do.
I must say that sometimes the effects are inconsistent and it confuses me (haven't figured out if it has to do with time i eat it, what i eat with it, mood, etc). I can take one and fall asleep(rare, 2xs) or take one and get silly hyper. It does supress my appetite, but not as well as i hoped...but i like to eat :)
I have noticed a change in appearance. I would probably give credit to stacker3 WITH working out and eating decent.
For me, I would compare it to drinking a cup of coffee.
I think that it all depends on the person. Be smart, follow directions, and know the risks of any diet pill.
I can see myself buying stacker3 for a long time. Great value for price.

Certain foods naturally introduce tyramine into the bloodstream. Among them are liver, cheese, aged sausages like salami or bologna, and most canned fruits.
I am also bi-polar with anxiety I must say that these stacker3's do not seem to affect me adversly at all. Sleep has always been an issue for me and I never have energy(anemia, since taking these I have real energy not manic type and no jitters. I weighed 350 lbs at one point lost down to 200 then back to 270 now at 250. I will re-post in 1 month as to success. I am 47 years old, have tried Rx. pills in the past and did not care for them re: jitters and headaches and heart flutters, increased pulse, I have not had any of these problems with Stackers 3's
Good luck everyone:)
LOVING ITFebruary 17, 2010
Reviewer: Brook from Seattle,Wa USA
I purchased the Stacker3 about 3 weeks ago, the first time I took it I couldnt notice the energy personally but it definetly makes me not hungry. I usually take one in the morning to stop the unnecessary snaking and one before dinner. I have recently lost 15 pounds and its very noticable. I have nothing negative to say about this product. I recommend this to anyone who is realistic and realized you HAVE to watch what you eat and excersie. This isn't a miracle pill...but if you follow all of the necessary suggestions you will see results!!

Reviewer: Paul from denver, colorado usa
I started out weighing in at 260lbs. I'm 5'9". I tried this on a whim because I felt so overweight, groggy, and wanted to do something about it. I changed my diet and excluded things from my diet including sodas, condiments like mayo, rarely ate cheese, and only had sweets occassionally. I didn't really have to work out too much and in a matter of months I lost almost a whole person. I work in an office setting so there isn't much "work out" time for me. I'm down to 180lbs and I continue to use this product on occassion. I started with one pill a day and worked to one per meal. 3x day. If you take it without a meal, you will feel very sick. I found myself wanting to drink a lot of water and urinating a lot. I weaned myself down again to 1x a day with a multivitamin and I feel energized and great. I went back to occassionally having a soda and I still don't use condiments. I feel great. Product works if used right!

Before I was 216. Now I am 189. With just portioning my food, and watching what I eat, and with Stackers, I started seeing results quicker. The only thing is...when I started taking them, I noticed that I was much more tempermental, and I was always hungry, so I would just take some stackers. I would recommend them to anybody =p

Reviewer: Manda from ohio, USA
i just started the stacker 3's about half a week ago, and so did one of my close friends. i haven't weighed myself since, but i know i was around 185 before starting, the heaviest i have been in three years. i've been fighting to lose weight since the summer of 2007, weighing around 200 then. i dropped to 140 in the late 08-09 winter, but that was through fierce workouts every day and starvation (stupid in the extremes, i know). now i try to eat healthier, but it doesnt always happen, and portions are difficult for me (i am a boredom snacker, too). i run a lot, and do some other school sports, but i have motivation problems in the winter, and when im not doing anything, i eat. i go to high school and take some courses at the local college, am fairly active, and work nearly thirty hours a week at my job. i have problems getting to sleep, but i also have problems waking up. i've noticed more energy already, and i feel better about myself. i have no idea if there have been any numeral results as of yet, but i believe i look smaller by judging in the mirror. i have had no shakes or dizzyness, save for one day at work when i couldnt find the time to eat before my shift started. but after eating at break, i was perfectly fine. i like this product, and i believe it may just actually work for me.
Girl that was 14 with a heart murmurOctober 08, 2009
Reviewer: Sarah from USA
FIRST OF ALL... No 14 year olds should be taking this pill! Second of all, anyone with a heart murmur should know better than to take any kind of pill of the sort. I am 21 years old and have about 35lbs to lose as I gained quite a bit while pregnant with my son. So far it has given me a lot of energy to exercise and get the things around the house done that I would constantly put off before as I work until 11 at night and my son gets up very early in the morning. I believe this is a good product as long as you need it and don't have sensitivity to any of it's ingredients.
makes me sickJuly 21, 2009
Reviewer: Jenn from upstate, new york
when i finished my adderall i figured id try and stop being so dependent on it keeping me awake. adderall was amazing i didnt need to eat with it and it NEVER made me sick or gave me headaches. i would only take it once a day in the morning and would last about all day till it was time go to to bed anyways. I picked up the stacker3's and took one with food. it gave me crazy jitters i had to sit down i felt like i was going to die i really hated it. i could not stop shaking. i tried to throw up but only threw up blood. i drank a whole bottle of water and tried to calm down. didnt work. i had to leave work and attempt to sleep it off. i laid in bed for 2 hours shaking myself to sleep, in the middle of the day, mind you. I DID however lose 1 pound in the 2hours from shaking! uncontrollably. finally when i woke up it was gone, no more shaking just a sever headache. i dont recommend this to anyone. Honestly Ephedra should be legal because you dont shake or feel like dying when you take it. it just wakes you up and you feel motivated and start becoming more active.

I just bought Stacker 3 the other day and I was hesitate becasue I have never used a diet pill before. What I experienced on my first day taking the pill was a burst of energy after about a half hour. I felt very happy just wanted to talk and get things done. I also wanted to drink a lot of water and go to the bathroom. I would not take this past 5 pm or you will have sleeping troubles. But over all I woke up and lost 5 pounds ! I recommend this product.
New user, but I love it so far!March 23, 2009
Reviewer: Jennifer18 from Oklahoma, USA
I'm an 18 year-old who has about 30 pounds to lose. I was 10 lbs overweight and was talking to a co-worker who suggested them. She said that they had made her sick and gave me the bottle (out of 90 she'd taken about a dozen) under the condition that I stop taking them if I get sick. I've cut cheese out of my diet (as suggested...more on that below). I started taking them Friday.
On Friday I pretty much pigged out at work, but I didn't eat a large portion at dinner. Saturday, I ate fresh fruits and vegetables whenever I was hungry--I didn't starve myself--and some mashed potatoes made with margerine and skim milk. Yesterday, I did the same. I'm drinking plenty of water (try it with lime or lemon juice if you're not a big fan of just water) and taking vitamin and mineral supplements.
Also, I'm on a 4-week low-calorie, low-fat, no-meat diet plan. I'm trying to lose the weight for prom, academic ceremonies (including 1 in a week), graduation, and my senior trip. I walk about a mile a day, at a brisk pace. I'm also doing some light calisthenics.
I haven't had any dizzy spells or lightheadedness except when I took the pill after eating a bowl of raw mushrooms. I haven't been jittery. I'm bipolar and have had a bad experience with manic depression, so I was weary of this product, but I haven't had any problems with it other than being easily excited.
...In response to the post about not being able to eat cheese and wine, that's because the product contains Tyramine, a monoamine compound derived from the amino acid tyrosine. Tyramine can cause the release of stored monoamines, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.
Overall, I love this product!

Stackers 3February 03, 2009
Reviewer: Charles arnest from detroit michigan
I've been taking stakers for approx. 2 years. the first year, with a program, and stackers I lost nearly 50 pounds, the pills help curve your appetite and increase your heart rate for certain. They were not beneficial going to the gym as you get burned out faster and your heart rate increases to near dangerous levels with minimum work out, sure it is good for burning calories, yuo do get the dizzyness, light-headedness, sometimes eye strains, and you will def. shake and feel uneasy on a empty stomache. The Caffiene helps you metabolize quicker, and overall if you eat a little healthier and do minimal cardio to increase your heart rate I do believe these pills will help you burn some extra calories and prevent you from eating yourself into oblivion. They will not drop pounds off of you and if you do not eat healthy or starve yourself you WILL feel uneasy and get ill
felt sick taking itJanuary 23, 2009
Reviewer: Gabbi from NYC
It definitely did curb my appetite, but I felt sick within an hour of taking 1 tablet right after breakfast in the early morning. My hands started shaking and I felt very dizzy. I took it several times over a few days, and still had the very same side effect. Not sure if it's the one for me personally. My whole day was lost feeling that ill, and as a consequence I became quite unproductive.

It took me about 2 weeks for the nausea to go away. After that, you get the energy boost and your appetite is still very much curbed.... I took it for about a month and lost 26 pounds.... however when I stopped taking it, I gained it all back... that may have to do with my genes or slow metabolism or even lack of self control... who knows??
all in all it was effective, and inexpensive.

Reviewer: B-Man from Chicago, Illinois USA
I'm not a gym person - No membership, never will, hate it. I like summer sports, but I don't move in the winter and always gain ~20-25 lbs a yr. This yr I noticed a huge gut - after having a flat stomach. I'm self conscious, and it busted out of all my shirts at work. I only took Stacker3 for a week now and I already feel tighter in my stomach and lighter. I have energy, I move more and use that energy, I eat much less and never between meals - which gives me the opportunity to think about what I eat (now that I'm not scarfing down food, I make sure I eat fruits and limit bread intake and almost totally stopped greasy foods). Also, I haven't experienced any side effects at all. I highly recommend this product. There is nothing I can think of, for them to add to this pill, to make it better. It's doing its job, and giving me everything I could dream of to make losing weight a reality, even when I'm not out playing sports. Thanks!
I Like ItDecember 19, 2008
Reviewer: I_Try_Everything from Oregon, USA
I've been taking the stacker 3's for about a month now and it has already worked a miracle.
I usually take 2 stackers a day directly after a small breakfast.. This pill definitly prevents me from eating anything else for about 12-14hrs. Recently I've been eating a bigger meal before taking the two pills.. and I'm finally starting to feel the energy part of the pill vs. just the subsiding of hunger. When I started taking this pill I was in a size 24 weighing 300lbs. and I've already lost 2 pant sizes.. I feel great
I work swing shift and after work I usually feel groggy and tired... like I just need to go to sleep.. But with the larger meal + 2 Stacker 3's I'm ready to go to the gym and run the treadmill to death :)
This diet pill is worth at least trying!

Don't be an idiot!September 22, 2008
Reviewer: GetReal from PA
It seems like a lot of people who don't need this type of diet aid are taking them anyway, then ranting about how crappy it is. This doesn't help me. Why would someone take this just to lose a couple lbs? Why would someone at only 125 lbs who already works out 5x week be taking these? This person needs to read a bit about human biology what a calorie is. Anyone who actually gets sick on these is either someone who doesn't need them or someone who would've been told by a dr. not to take them. I mean, a heart murmur? I can't imagine that even an idiot with a heart murmur would take these.
My sister takes only 1 a day, and she needs to lose over 100 lbs. It's working wonders for her. I need to lose over 50 lbs and plan on starting them soon. I'll be sure to follow up on my review. And about the #lbs we need to lose, this is just to get down to 135-145 to look normal. Bottom line, I say, is that unless you need to lose like 30+ lbs, you would have to be an idiot to take these, as well as if you continue to take them after they've made you sick. Do me a favor, don't write a review for something like this unless you have actually followed the instructions and more importantly, consulted with someone as to whether or not you should even be taking something like this, please!
What a Disappointment...August 30, 2008
Reviewer: Johnnie from Atlanta, GA USA
I've read many reviews about this product and it seems to go both ways with people, few with excellent results. From what I've seen the majority had nothing but terrible things to say. I am one with the majority. If you have any tolerance to caffeine this item will do nothing what so ever for you (at least in my case). It made me cranky and made me sleepy. There was no energy burst or any good feeling what so ever associated with it. I'm going back to a company I trust like Maximum Human Performance (MHP). I've tried MHP's Anadrox and it works awesome. My sights are set now on using MHP's Dren. It couldn't be any worse than this junk.

I am 5'5, was 130 lbs and have been taking Stacker 3 no ephedra for 2 weeks. I have lost about 7 lbs. I worked out a few times, but I am not extremely active. I feel great though. My skin actually looks better. I have taken other pills in the past and they have always made me very jittery. These are fine. I take two pills, one after breakfast and one after lunch, and I actually drink coffee in the morning. Astonishingly, I don't have trouble sleeping. Obviously I'm not sensitive to caffeine. If you are, I wouldn't take it.
Does what it says but still feels unhealthyApril 10, 2008
Reviewer: Courtney from Ontario, Canada
I bought these diet pills a few years ago and took them and then stopped. I still had them and I decided to start taking them a few days ago. The first day I took it this week on Monday, well I was on my way to school and got so dizzy and nauscious and then it was a feeling similar to being on cocaine or ecstacy. I was antsy and class and just wanted to exercise. I didn't get tired at all during my workout and had endless energy but eventually i crashed in the evening. I couldnt sleep at all and i had a headache and felt like i was hungover or sketching out. today i took one for the energy purposes and it was not as bad today as it was on monday.. i had lots of energy but i still feel dizzy and nauscious. it feels like speed or drugs which i hate. also my heart feels irregular and i dont think it is healthy to take these pills. my heart feels like it is beating out of its chest. it does curb your appetite but i dont know if this is all worth it?? honestly this pill is similar to ecstacy in so many ways i truly wonder what is in them lol... i guess if u want to risk the side effects then do it. it will make u lose weight but at what cost?? i would recommend just using them on the days u need a boost.
Marine in Iraq, 20lbs 4 weeksApril 03, 2008
Reviewer: Cpl. "P" from Iraq
Lost 20lbs in 30days.
First off, I did diet and exercise too, and I already had a significant amount of muscle. I got to Iraq about a month and a half ago. I hit the gym for about 2 hours a day, at least every other day and have run over 100 miles in the last 30 days. Hydroxicut hardcore was able to help me get out of bed in the morning and to the gym. Probably because of the caffine. I ate healthy but compleat meals 3 times a day with healty snacks under 100 calories in between. I don't know if they work but I've never lost 20 pnds of fat in a month before and I work out a lot. I think they helped. I look a lot better physicaly too.

GREAT... for those NOT sensitive to caffeine.February 21, 2008
Reviewer: Kevin from Greensboro, NC USA
I just began taking Stacker 3 this week. I'm now on day 4, taking one capsule after each meal, which comes to three capsules per day, the maximum recommended dosage. I have completely come off of my morning and afternoon coffee, as there is no need for them while taking Stacker. I was drinking a triple espresso in the morning and a double in the afternoon containing 300mg and 200mg of caffeine respectively. I have been on that regiment for a couple of years now so I have a high tolerance to caffeine. The point is, that even with my high tolerance, after a couple of days I can still feel the rush from the Stacker which has 225mg of just caffeine, not to mention the other stimulants contained in the "Proprietary Blend". So for anyone just starting out with diet pills be warned that Stacker 3 is a serious source of energy and will increase your metabolism, but there are definate side effects, so start out slow until you know how you will react. Overall I am very pleased with the results and it's far cheaper than espresso.
curbs your appetite but makes you sickFebruary 21, 2008
Reviewer: Alexa from brooklyn, NY
I have been taking them for about 4 days now and I take a stacker3 after each meal, averaging about 3 a day, I haven't slept in about 2 days and after taking each pill I feel sick to my stomach and like I might throw up. I get fainting spells and dizziness often as it is without a diet pill, and the dizziness feeling has just escalated with these pills. It does curb my appetite, but the problem is it makes you feel sick so that you feel the need to eat more to balance your sugar level. I'm giving it a couple more days for my body to adapt to the strength of the pill, but I have learned my lesson not to take them after around 3 or 4 p.m. or else you will not sleep.
Dangerous!!! It should be taken off the shelf.February 19, 2008
Reviewer: Lynn from Pittsburgh, PA USA
I took stacker3 for less than 3 days according to the directions. On the third day, my heart rate started racing to the point I could feel it pounding out of my chest. That lasted about 10 minutes and then my heart rate dropped so low that I could barely breathe. It went in waves of about 1 minutes each from an extremely elevated heart rate to an extremely low heart rate. Eventually I was shaking uncontrolably. After a trip to the emergency room, I found out that the product was causing palpatations. They told me to stop taking it immediately because I was at risk for a heart attack. I am 25 years old. I've taken different diet pills in the past and never experienced anything negative. It's been 3 days now and I still feel exhausted. I can litterally feel my heart hurting inside my chest. If I move to fast or try to do too much I feel like I could pass out still. Losing a little weight isn't worth the chance of losing your life or having to deal with these side effects that have lasted for days now. This diet pill is extremely dangerous and should be pulled from the shelf. For those of you who are skeptical of this review, ask yourself why it is so much different than every other diet pill? Because the maker crosses the lines of safety to make money. Please for your own health don't use this product. I am a healthy 25 year old woman. I only weigh 125 lbs., and I work out at least 5 days a week. If it could do this to me, imagine what it could do to a slightly older adult who isn't in the best physical health. It is dangerous!!!

I just started yesterday taking these pills. Ive been reading about it on the internet and It tells you to stay away from wine and cheese. I haven't been able to find out why. Im curious I eat alot of cheese and Im alittle worried. May be Im just freaking out for no reason. I hope so anyway. I have heard of alot of poeple who take stacker3 and have very good luck with it. So I guess I'll give it a try. Im 155 lbs now and only want to lose about 20 lbs I think that would be a good weight. I used to be 200 lbs and did slim fast but that stuff works but taste like crap and I want to be able to eat food.
Great if you use it properlyJanuary 28, 2008
Reviewer: Carrie from Saint Cloud, MN
I actually just started using this 2 days ago. I have already lost 4 pounds. I will tell you my energy is through the roof right now which kinda sucks because I have a desk job so I'm kind of antsy at work, but I sure am getting a lot done!! My appetite is very curbed. I can't even imagine eating a whole lean cuisine at this point. I think its really important to try to wear yourself out before you go to bed because otherwise you'll be wide awake. The great news is this gives you a little extra motivation to hit the gym or at least take your dog for a walk! I have had slight headaches and it is VERY important to drink enough water. I have been doing it so that I eat as much as I am hungry for and then I take my pill. If I start to feel a little bit sick, I eat a little something extra and it goes away. Today for lunch I had a yogurt, took my pill, felt a little sick so I had a banana and I feel great now! I did have a near death experience last night though (by almost hitting a bunch of deer while driving) and it took me a long time to calm down after that. My heart was racing and I was shaking really bad for about 15 minutes... then I was fine.
stacker raped the fat off my bodyJanuary 22, 2008
Reviewer: Bo Jackson from Centreville , Virginia
the only reason im not rating it a 5 star is because its not PERFECT, but damn near perfect. i took about a one month supply of stacker 3 and it worked wonders. GET THIS PEOPLE.... from 218 to 175 and i was ripped. so many people were telling me >>omg man this is unhealthy you cant lose this much weight in that short amount of time stop starving yourself. well the only problem witht hat is is that I WASNT STARVING MYSELF. 4 HEALTHY meals a day. the first 2 meals wee followed by two stacker pills and lifting in the afternoons and sometimes cardio in the mornings. this prouct is amazing if taken correctly. i didnt drink any soda or coffee ...or tea, but i did get light headed after my first serving. now its 6 months later and im still shredded and hab=vnt taken the pill for 5 months..(i just make sure to stay eating healthy and excersising)THANK YOU prducers of stacker you guys kick ass

Reviewer: Meagan from Texas
Hi, I've been taking stacker since april of last year off and on. Just one tablet a day. while I have lost a significant amount of weight- I do from time to time experience awful stomach pains... nothing serious though. Also I feel it has caused me to have an obsession with my weight. I'm not blaming the diet pills. It is just something to consider before taking them.
Stacher 3 for migraine??November 17, 2007
Reviewer: Guido B. V. from Czech Republic
Hi, I started taking Stacker 3 for making exercises and I it was great. But I had many problems because of my little paranoia and every time my pulse went up I though may be I will get a heart attack. The thing is that I realized that when I take stacker I have no problems with headache and migraine any more. Not only that I have more energy during the day but also I can control the several headaches I had my all life. Does any body know if you can take these pills for a long-term? I am talking about just 1 pill each day.
No, you're not pregnant... You're on Stacker 3!!October 18, 2007
Reviewer: Yay! Cake! from Oahu, HI
I started eating a lot over the summer and decided to take Stacker 3 to help me to lose some weight. Wow... what a nightmare.
So, it was my first day on the stuff, and I didn't know what to expect. A few hours after taking the pill, I became nauseous, feverish, dizzy, weak, and tired. I kept having to drink water to rehydrate myself, so i was peeing all day long.
Well anyway, with all those symptoms, I thought I might've been catching the flu or something, so I went to see my doctor. He asked me what kind of symptoms were bothering me, and I tell him. Then he SCARES the CRAP out of me by telling me, "You might be pregnant."
PREGNANT?!! I'm not ready to be a mom! I'm too young for that!
So, the whole day i'm FREAKING OUT:
and swearing. (CRAZY mood-swings)
I kept taking the pills and I still felt the same.
A few days later, I get my period.
I'm like, "What's the deal?!"
So, I see my doctor.
I check online.
I find out more about this diet pill...
Turns out, I'm not pregnant; I'm on Stacker 3.
great fat burner!September 12, 2007
Reviewer: L.g. from los angeles,ca,us
i started taking this fat burner 5 weeks ago damn is all i can say
i eat 2 overmedium eggs with 2 bacon strips and 1 stacker after that and i hit the gym 4 hrs (lifting weights cardio and a bunch of stuff)
after that i still have energies for my afternoon workout 2 more hrs into mma
i just recently started taking 2 instead of one and im having trouble sleeping at night :s
i was pushing a size 15-16 and i was pissed, i had never been that big in my life, even 9 months pregnant...So i bought a small pack of stacker 3's at wal mart in desperation... none of my clothes are fitting and i was tired of getting bigger.. Since i have been taking stacker 3's for a total of 1 wk now, i have lost close to 15 pounds as of today. Hallelujah!!! But the first day i took them, i only took one b/c i couldn't take any more than that without getting really sick.. I didn't feel good the first day i took them, but i didn't care, i wanted to continue to take them to see what would happen.. After the 2nd day i was able to start taking 2 a day, i don't take one after 2 pm though or you won't be able to go to sleep at a decent time...You will have lots of energy during the day to work out and get your unfinished work done..Once they start wearing off you might feel a little sick... My plan is to take these short term so i am just trying to get through all of this right now....Each day seems to get better....I was SO HAPPY to see the scales this morning.. Last thurs i was at 188 pounds on the scale, and today 1 wk later i am at 173... 15 pounds in 1 wk.. That works for me!!! Now i just hope it continues, but that is a great start for a diet... I have not been eating as much, in fact I don't eat very much at all.. And you will drink A TON of water on these, which is a good thing, i don't drink sodas at all, and i just drink 1 cup of coffee in the mornings.. B/C i see such a signigant change in my weight already i don't even want to eat any unhealthy or fattening food.. i am losing weight too fast to ruin it now... I definately want to get to a size 9 by next Thursday.. But in the long run i am hoping to at least get to a size 6 again.!!! I was happy last night when i went to JCPenney and was able to buy a saize 11/12 in jr's sizes.. It might just be the brand, but that felt freakin awesome for a wk, and last thursday I could barely fit into my size 14's...This is a great product to boost a diet, but i wouldn't recommend it for long term, but hopefully it will give you better eating habits for a lifetime....

Reviewer: April from VA
I started taking this about two weeks ago, I'm a 20 year old female that weighs 148. I lost 3lbs in one day! It def. will keep you up ALL night. I now only take these once after breakfast and once after lunch. I do feel like I'm going to throw up after taking them --this may last for 30mins - an hour. I have experienced a little bit of pain in my stomach that may last for a few seconds. I do not take these pills at all on days that I plan to work out -- it makes me feel sick for the rest of the night.

Stacker 3July 01, 2007
Reviewer: Sean from Atlanta, GA USA
I have only been taking Stacker 3 for about a week, It seems to be working in the means of giving me energy, but I haven't quite been able to figure out if I'm losing fat and weight or not, I take one in the morning after breakfast and it gives a lot of energy for my morning workout regimen, and then one after lunch and it gives me energy for the rest of the day. I have't felt any uncomfortable side effects yet, I took one and had a bit of a stomach ache but I'm not so sure that was from the Stacker. I do not recomend taking one after dinner because it does make it hard to sleep, I didn't sleep for almost two days because of this. Yet I find it does work nicely as of right now.

Stacker? more like stripper!June 13, 2007
Reviewer: Aluno from wales UK
I tried these tablets after regular dieting and excersise could only get me to 16st 13lbs but i have taken these for 8 days and have lost 9 pounds, well worth the money as they were one of the cheapest products i could find.
The boost of energy i get from these is superb i wake up and in 30 minutes of taking it im in 'go' mode.
The best bit for me was the appetite suppresent angle, i could go all day on just a snack some days, which im not saying is healthy but doind this is fine for me and i have had none of the side effects
As im only 20 and usually quite active anyway the side effects dont really bother me and shoudlnt as im only using this aid for my 'beach body', its better than my beached whale body.
i think these supplements are great but should be taken seriously, it does come with a poison warning and isnt approved by the FDA.
They work for me and would reccomend to anyone provided its safe for them to do so

1/2 dosage for meMay 28, 2007
Reviewer: HEIDI from TN
I started with the recommended dosage and like most of you had the mood swings ( I also took the ephedra pills as well ). I had to wean down from daily usage to just when I need them and finally (where I am now ) to a half a pill. I have to literally open them and put them in a beverage because the first half will do that and then the second I don't have to empty half because I have already done that. I don't do well with caffeine because I have tons of energy as it is ( I exercise alot and most people don't believe that you can get energy from workouts~~ It's true ~~ ).
Temporary Insanity???April 09, 2007
Reviewer: Cherie from Cincinnati, OH
I've been taking Stacker products off and on for the past 10 years. The first time, in the late 90's, was with Ephedra. The energy was priceless and helped me tremendously to not only loose 100 lbs., but give me energy for a high-stress career and what seemed like added strength for working out. In 2000 I stopped taking it when I found out I was pregnant. I began again a couple of years after giving birth, but was concerned about the long-term side effects. With a new daughter I didn't feel the gamble was worth it. Then, several months ago I was desperate for energy and started taking them again. I now know it wasn't the Ephedra that made me "crazy," but something else. I notice when I take Stacker 2, I have more energy than with 3. But, I've also noticed that I can get EXTREMELY angry and impatient more so with the 3's. It's scary. I also notice more headaches with Stacker products in general. Quite frankly, the long-term effects worry me. Unfortunately, I rely on them for energy more than anything else.

I have been taking Stacker3 for only a few days. I like it but I do not recomend you take it after dinner. It makes it really hard to sleep at night. I take one after breakfast around 8am and one around lunch time 1pm. It keeps me going threw the day and really curbs the appetite. I haven't lost anything yet but it has only been a few days. Ill repost once I have started to lose weight.
Stacker 3March 29, 2007
Reviewer: Stacker 3 - hard crash from Austin, TX
Gives you a huge boost of energy at first but the after effect is a major crash. The crash you will feel really tired, nervous, light headed and weak. Not for hypoglycemics. Really curbs your appetite. I take one per day and I have a hard time eating anything at all. I have to force myself to eat a tablespoon of peanut butter just to get through the crash. I highly suggest you take a good multi vitamin while taking this product.

I just started using stacker 3 and so far not so good. I get really light headed and my visoin gets blury. It doesn't really seem to give me energy as most people clam... In fact, its had the opposite effect on me...I stay really tried through out the day. I haven't checked the scales, but I did a comment that I looked like I had lost some weight...but my clothes still fit good, so I'm not sure if they were telling the truth or just being nice..lol... anyway, try it if you like, different things work differently for different people.
Stacker 3 .... yeah i dig these pillsFebruary 06, 2007
Reviewer: Smitty from Philly, PA
First off, I took the Stacker 2 pills like 3-4 years ago(the ones with EPHEDRA) and they gave me energy but it also made me moody as hell, I mean like crazy, for real. It probably was the ephedra. But, now I'm taking the Stacker 3 pills and I dig these. But, I gotta tell you as with any medicine or supplement, your body has to adjust to it first, so it's up to you whether you're stick to after the first few times you take it. Basically, at first the only side effects I experienced was lack of sleep, rapid heart beat (at times), slight nasseau and acne. As far as the acne, I don't experience it often and I don't know whether it's attributed to the 250 mg per pill of caffeine but... maybe it wasn't the pills but, it is what it is. But yo, my eating habits are way better, I'm more energetic and my weight is easier to manage. Buy this shit ya'll... IT WORKS!!!
Hm, not to shabby.February 05, 2007
Reviewer: Nou from Blaine, Minnesota USA
I have to say that I'm quite young. I just started to take these pills, and they helped me a lot. It gave me more energy and it even helped me eat less. Also, when I excercise, I usually get sore and tired easily, but with these pills, it does the opposite; I don't get tired/sore easily. But in order for this pill to work, you have to eat the correct amount of food. For me, if I eat less and then take the pill, I get very light headed and nauseous. But, if I eat the correct amount, I feel energetic and not sick. So, drink a lot of water and eat the correct amount of food. Not only that, eat the RIGHT food.

I work out 5 times a week and I have been taking Stacker3 for 2 weeks so far....no weight loss yet but my appetite has been decreased though.
I get very dizzy and light-headed after getting up from a chair. I normally black out for like 4 seconds.
This has always happend to me but now its just way worse.
The caffine doesn't effect me much cause I've always been a big coffee drinker. So I just drink a little less coffee now that I'm taking these.
Hope to see some weight loss eventually!

Reviewer: Josh from Birmingham, AL
I took stackers 3 when they first came out, the ones with Ephedra for almost 6yrs and they are addictive. I used to take them after every meal, which after a while meals became less and less frequent. I have not taken any of there products for about 2 yrs and keep trying to take on occasion the new Stacker 2 XLR and at first they make me feel good but after about an hour or two I start feeling like I am getting sick (like when you first start to get the flu). I am a very weight conscious person and used to run every day at least a couple of miles. I have found that a product called Thermo-Burst works much better and doesnít give me that horrible feeling the Stacker 2ís do. Has anyone else experienced this? I would vouch for the product but would advise everyone to make sure to drink lots of fluids and eat regular balanced meals. In short all these pills are just a GNC version of cocaine and come with the same side effects.
Stacker 3 works for meSeptember 21, 2006
Reviewer: Jay from Charleston, WV
Two a day is what works for me. Might be too much or too little for others. However taken once in the morning, and once about 2 pm they do help me through the day, and give me plenty of energy to play with two very active kids in the evening and a light workout before bed. No problem sleeping, especially since I have the energy for a workout right before bed. I initially experienced some light shaking in my hands, however has subsided since my system has adjusted. It took me about a week of two a day to adjust. They have definitley curbed my appetite, and prompted better eating habits, no more obsession to stop for fast food on my way home.
I weigh 230 pds and now have the energy to start working off the extra wieght and putting on more muscle.

Reviewer: Faustino from Bakersfield, CA
Hello. I am new to this pill although I must say, I suffer from no side effects other than trouble sleeping at night, but that might also have to do with my poor sleeping habits. I get nervous easily to the point it is safe to say I suffer from anxieties, although this pill does not make me shaky. I take it once in the morning after I eat a light breakfast, and after lunch (both of those meals with light carbs). I haven't got to weight myself yet, but I am 5'9" and about 176lbs. I plan on losing 20lbs or so. I will keep everyone updated, but I only been taking them for about a week. You must eat healthy as one person reported how they are allergic to codine, I am as well. I tried to drink a soda about 3 hours from my 2nd pill once, and felt an almost ephedra effect, so I stopped drinking it. I think in order for these pills to work correctly, you must watch what you eat and watch those sugars, despite what they say

Reviewer: Canadian Guy from Winnipeg, Canada
You are all silly if you take Stacker and do not work out. You have to work out to take Stacker or any other fat burner. It is not healthy to take a fat burner and sit on the couch eating potato chips wishing off the fat. If you take Stacker - get off your butts and hit the gym, hit the treadmill, run, walk - do something. Fat burners are only part of the solution to losing fat and living a healthy life style.

I took 2 yesterday. because the bottle says 1 after every meal. and i took one at lunch and at dinner. i bought the ephedra free ones. right after u take the pill u get a dizzy feeling, which lasts no longer than 2 minutes. but later on in the day u feel dizzy and cant keep focused for long. i tried working out because i thought it would help. but it didnt. i was benching and i felt more pressure in my head than i have ever felt before. it started to hurt. so i stopped and tried to go to sleep. my heart was beating a bit fast and my abdominal muscle felt strange. i tried to sleep but i couldnt. and i havent gone to sleep since last night. i did not like the effects of this pill so i tossed them away. i would not recomend this diet pill to anyone. the only safe alternative is slow aeurobics workouts, and some weight lifting. this helps alot. plus eating well. other than that u dont need this pill.

Stacker 3 , does have a couple of ups and downs, but doesnt all things that are so simple? Stacker 3 always keeps you energized and is also helping you lose weight.

You have to try it to believe it. No im not being paid to say any of this.
