I did lose the weight - it took a little while. I also exercise and eat right and pay attention. I'm 49 and I noticed that I felt more like myself a couple of days after I stopped taking it. I don't have hot flashes anymore - so that's a plus. I hope you have the same results!View Thread
I'm glad to know that I wasn't imagining that Amberen had the weight gain effect. I've been off the Amberen for a couple of months now & don't have the flashes and sweats. Slowly peeling off the extra pounds. If I knew then that I would gain weight - instead of losing it as they advertise, I probably wouldn't have taken it.View Thread
I have been on Amberen for 70 days and have gained 7lbs. The bloating around my middle is uncomfortable. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm going to stop taking them today and hope to go back to normal.View Thread
