Dear Anna
Leonor drops contain a derivative of epinephrine which is potentially addictive, which is why they are not longer sold over the counter. The side-effects associated with negative side-effects such as dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions. These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Drinking 2,5 litres of liquid (which can include water, but also includes all other liquids you drink per day) is a good practice. But drinking excessive amounts of water (hot or cold) will not promote weightloss and can cause electrolyte imbalances.
