are there any dangers in using Leanor drops.
I am a woman in mid- twenties, i started going to the gym this year and i felt that the results are a bit slow-therefore I opted for mixing it with leanor drops to speed up the process. Are they dangerous or not? Please advise.

Dear Nonatjie
As I have just pointed out to 03 below, many diet pills and potions contain ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine (check on the label) which can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Stick to your exercise to lose weight and combine it with a balanced, low-fat diet. Rapid weight loss is often followed by just as rapid weight gain, so rather be patient.
Take care
