Simply slim
Does one need a prescription to buy these tablets. How much does it cost? Is it effective? I am 27years old and weigh 73kg, height 1.6. After I had my first baby a year ago, I put on a lot of weight and I am trying really hard to get rid of it.(I am not breast feeding anymore) Will simlpy slim help? Will simply slim effect me later on if I want to have another baby?


Please advise
Thanks
Anna
