Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I started taking a product that has 12 mgms. per pill of Ephedra back in 1997. In 4 months I was able to loose 30 pounds (my wife lost 32 pounds) and my energy level was better than years. I felt better and had a life again. I took four pills a day and now in 2003 I am still taking 4 pills a fay. Every now and then I will get off them to let my body rest. I have never had any bad dffects from the product I am taking. The company who makes my product has chosen to bottle their products in an FDA approved lab so the quality is bad. I feel FDA should do something to get rid of the companies that abuse Ephedra by putting in way to much to give a person a natural high. I would also like to see the FDA and news media say the whole truth when a person has a problem with Ephedra like if they on their on decided to take more than the recommended dose and what medical problems that may have been the real reason for the problem that Ephedra was wrongfully blamed for.
