Lipozene can also cause an allergic reaction, as claimed by Colon Cleansing Zone. Signs of allergic reaction include difficulty breathing, hives, itching, wheezing and facial swelling. Individuals who any of these symptoms should stop using Lipozene and see a doctor right away, because an allergic reaction is a serious side effect.

Lipozene is a pill sold over the counter to help individuals lose weight and fight obesity. When the fiber glucomannan is mixed with water, it expands in the stomach and gives the user the feeling of being full. The person is likely to eat less and thus should eat less and lose weight, as stated by Colon Cleansing Zone.

Alhough there are many possible side effects, Lipozene overall seems to be relatively safe for users when they take the recommended dose, says HowStuffWorks. However, research is inconclusive as to whether or not it is an effective weight loss tool. Its manufacturer, Obesity Research Institute, was cited by the Food and Drug Administration for making false and unsubstantiated claims regarding its effectiveness, Colon Cleansing Zone notes.
