    I`ve tried this drug, but it`s effective for short-term weight loss if used together with a low-calorie diet and exercise. What problems does your daughter have? Does she have a slow metabolism? I just know that these pills aren`t prescribed to everyone, even though they are popular. Try the programs for long term results, I chose for me because I liked the way my friend looked after going through it. And from personal experience - any medication is always worse than a balanced diet and sports, in addition such pills have a lot of side effects, I have faced with them too=(
