This product worked great for the first few days... until the violent (and I mean VIOLENT) sickness began. I have been out of work for the last three days because I have been vomiting and experiencing diarrhea so frequently and severely I couldn't go too far from a bathroom. I followed the instructions about how many of each pill to take and also stuck to the diet recommended, but this sickness hit me all at once with no warning. I lost weight (which was not my intended use) but I'm not sure anyone wants to lose 5.5 lbs in 24 hours. It began over 2 days ago and although I have stopped taking the pills, I am still suffering nausea and abdominal cramps. It cleansed my system alright, but in a very painful and time consuming way.
