Plexus Slim Side Effects

Side Effects of Plexus Slim

Like with any other weight loss product, side effects can be a concern. The official Plexus website claims that there are no ill side effects. While it seems like this is probably a good selling point for the company, it is important to note that this is a broad statement to make. Through some extensive research it seems like Plexus has the potential for some of the normal “weight loss” side effects at a lesser degree. While it doesn’t appear to be normal for everyone to experience side effects, it is important to understand that you should be cautious of your body any time you are putting something new into it. Plexus Slim Side Effects It is reported over and over that the more water you drink, the better the results you will have with Plexus Slim. Drinking water usually correlates to more weight loss with almost any program. While results are not solely related to a change in habits, better health and exercise will definitely increase your potential for success. There are also several reports of people who say they change nothing about their eating or exercising habits and experience success with Plexus. This is encouraging for us people who find it hard to change our habits, but at the same time are fed up with being over-weight. One of the ingredients listed in Plexus Slim is chlorogenic acid. There are a couple of ingredients listed in Plexus that encourage weight loss through appetite suppressant and increased energy (alpha lipoic acid, garcinia cambogia). Here is a list of the ingredients listed in Plexus Slim straight from the Plexus website:

Chromium Proprietary blend of Chlorogenic Acid (from Green Coffee Caffea arabica Bean) Extract (contains less than 2% natural caffeine), Garcinia cambogia Fruit Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid. Other Ingredients: POLYDEXTROSE, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVORS, BEET (BETA VULGARIS ROOT) EXTRACT (FOR COLOR), STEVIA (STEVIA REBAUDIANA LEAF) EXTRACT, LUO HAN GUO (SIRAITIA GROSVENORII FRUIT) EXTRACT

Understanding what ingredients are in Plexus is a much better way of determining if you will have any side effects to the product. Certain people will react in certain ways to almost anything and it may not repeat in anyone else. It is important to know your body and also consult with a physician if you feel concerned for any reason. The vast majority of people do not report any side effects, as a matter of fact it is much more of a challenge to find someone who is reporting anything negative about Plexus as opposed to positive.

  1. I have been drinking the pink drink for about a month and have lost zero pounds, zero inches and and have not had all that energy I was told I would have. Your ambassadors need to tell their customers about drug interactions they may encounter — things I have had to find out for myself through researching various ingredients in the product. For example, I take Synthroid and the chromium can interfere with it if taken close together. Another is that cambogia garcinia should not be taken if that person is taking a statin, which I am. This product can also cause sleeplessness which I have had; however, since I have trouble sleeping anyway, I don’t know if this is due to the Plexus or not. I also noticed that I haven’t seen any of these findings on the Plexus Slim websites. This company and their ambassadors need to be more upfront with their customers.

    • Plexus Slim (like anything else) doesn’t work for everyone. You can take full advantage of the 60 day money-back guarantee if you would like. Contact the ambassador you bought the product from or if it was shipped directly to you email

      As far as the drug interaction troubles you are having, it would be virtually impossible to list every single effect the product has with every single other drug. That’s why the ingredients are listed on the package, it is your responsibility to find out what the interactions might be with your medication. Take the package to your doctor and he will guide you in the right direction.

      I’m sorry Plexus Slim didn’t work for you. You might consider trying the ProBio5, there are several other options to explore.

    • Did you take the boost with the pink drink??

    • Actually the client should always check with their physician before consuming any kind of product like this.

    • This is why you as a consumer should have shown the products to your doctor and did your research. No one to blame bit yourself there.

  2. I have been on Plexus slim for 5 months and have seen great results however my husband has only taken it for 3 days and is already experiencing extreme intestinal problems! Diarrhea, Abdominal pain, gas mainly.

    • I’m no doctor, but I would guess his body is getting rid of all the junk. I would have him stop taking it and consult a physician if it persists.

    • Kierstin, Is your husband still taking Plexus? I’ve had problems with Gas and my Belly growling etc. I love the product and want to continue using it but wasn’t sure if I should stop. Just curious to see if he continued on it and his symptoms stopped.

  3. I have been taking Plexus for a week and a half. I feel great! Due to “slow bowel” I have had to drink Milk of Magnesia (YUCK) everyday for years. Since starting Plexus, I have only taken MOM two times. That was due to habbit. I was unaware how much Plexus would help my stomach. As far as weight loss, I did not take measurements or weigh myself before I started. Last week, I bought a pair of capris, had to use rubber band to hold pants closed bc I couldnt button them. I FIT THOSE CPARIS COMFORTABLY YESTERDAY! Happy w the product !

    • That’s awesome Angela! There are so many others who have had health benefits from taking Plexus Slim, it’s great to hear about the positive side effects as well.

      Thanks for sharing!

        My husband and I have been using Plexus Slim, Accelerator and Pro Bio5. He has lost 38 lbs and went from a 38 to a 34 pants. What I love most is he is 2 points away from getting off his High Blood and Diabetes medicines. He has not done any exercise and eats till we go to sleep and still he lost the weight. I have went from an 18 – 20 to a 16. Only lost 8 lbs. It sucks because you want to see the scale move but I love actually seeing results and with everyone asking how did you do it we are now ambassadors ourselves. This product works just stay consistent.

  4. I just started my 4th week on Plexus Plus and Accelerator.
    My ambassador told me that the scale was not my friend. She said that Plexus burns fat which will show in inches before pounds. Since I am really trying to lose weight, I am doing weight watchers as well.
    As of Monday I am down 11.6 pounds and 10 overall inches!
    I think the product makes me thirsty since part of the regimen is to drink 1/2 body weight in ounces of water each day. It took about 2 weeks to feel any additional energy and I notice that mostly in the evenings.
    I probably won’t use Plexus long term…but it has definitely helped me get started. I had no cravings or withdrawal from sweets.

    • That’s awesome Bobbi! Thanks for sharing.

      There is a sugar epidemic in this country and this is one of the things about Plexus that kind of goes unspoken. There are several people who are able to cut down on their sugar intake because they just simply don’t have a craving for it anymore. Plexus isn’t just about weight loss, it’s about getting healthy!

    • That is awesome Bobbi!!!! I love a good success story.

    • What is your eating regimen like? I’ve been on the triplex for 2 months and have only seen a few pound loss and a few inches :/

  5. Ive been taking Plexus slim with the boost for 1 week , I have been drinking the 85 ounces of water each day, and eating a light diet with chicken, fresh fruit and vegetables, some yogurt, and some cereal bars. I feel Great and am not very hungry. I eat about 5 times a day, I started at 170 lbs and and down to 163 pounds in one week. This stuff does work for me. I will use it only until I reach my desired weight of 130 lbs. Im a Believer in this product, If I feel any side effect I will stop using it. Thanks Plexus!!

  6. I’ve been taking the product for 6 weeks and I’ve noticed a little difference, but I have been soon bloated and gassy , my stomach looks like I’m pregnant ( I’m not) what can I use or should I stop using the product.

  7. I just started the plexus with boost. I will take the probio tonight. And none too soon. My guts are going crazy! I think I just passed a jaw-breaker I accidently swallowed in the 7th grade. I’ve been going so much I think I’ve already lost 3 inches (in neck height). will this effect slow down with time?

  8. I’ve only been on plexus slim, accelerator + and block for a few days. . Is that a good combo for weight loss? I’m going to order the probio 5 and bio cleanse , just not sure I’m taking the right combo of products

    • There are so many variables involved, but it sounds like a good recommendation to me. I definitely like the probio5 and biocleanse as well.

  9. Hi there! I am planning on ordering my Plexus Slim and Accelerator tonight! My ambassador told me it was safe but I really can’t find too much info on it, is it okay to take while nursing?
    Thank you!

  10. My wife has been on plexus for 6 months and I see great results of weight loss and energy.
    But see been to the ER several times for back kidney pain. Do you think this could come from this product?

  11. Is it safe to use with the mirena birth control. Will it counter act?

  12. While taking Plexus you MUST drink water and lots of it!! You need to be drinking at least 80 ounces of water DAILY for Plexus to work the right way. Your body needs to flush out all the toxins that Plexus is releasing out of your fat cells. So if you are not drinking the amount of water needed, you will not experience the full benefits that this product has to offer. If you ARE drinking at least 80 ounces of water a day and the product doesnt seem to be working or giving you negative side effects, then this product may not be for you. Like any other product on the market, not everyting is going to work for everyone:)

  13. My name is Patricia and I am 39yrs old and I am desperately needing to lose weight. I’m 406lbs and I would like to know if Plexus Slim is the weight loss product that could help me because I haven’t heard a testimony from someone who was close to my weight… I would appreciate it if I could be contacted about what I should do because if it will benefit me I would like to get started

    • Patricia I have sent an email to the address you provided.

      • My cravings stopped and I thought this is great! But every single morning that I drank plexus slim I was energetic and my mind was sharp! Never tired but then at 10 pm was still wide awake as if I just drank the drink!? Zero sleep! I treasure sleep! Does anyone know what I should or could do?

    • Hi Patricia I would like to share my testimony with you, at one time I was 344lbs, now 274lbs had very high sugar and high col, and high blood pressure while I am still fighting blood pressure it has came down a lot to 147 over 87 I hope the Lord helps, and I know you can do this all it takes is will power. I hope this helps in some way.

    • I take serotonin. 4 mg per night. I usually take this about an hour after my evening meal.

  14. Sherita Williamson

    Can I used the plexus if I am on high blood pressure pills. Also is products high.

  15. Can you take a fluid pill with this system
    .I have to for blood pressure

  16. I just started my second week of Plexus and the Boost. So far I feel great! I didn’t weigh or measure myself but I did take before pics. I’ve never been a sugar person so that’s not a problem. I really don’t eat bad anyways but I do drink beer 3-4 days a week. Sometimes whiskey but usually beer. I’ll drink 6-12 at a time. The days I do drink I don’t eat as much. I’ve tried to research it out but I’m curious if anyone knows anything about drinking alcohol on Plexus??? I’m 206lbs last time I checked and I’m hoping to drop at least 50lbs.

  17. I have been on plexus slim for 2 months and have not seen any effects except it has helped my stomach problems tremendously, hoping that it will also help my A1C and to lose some weight. Have not seen any weight loss yet, but was told that it could take up to 6 months…why are other people experiencing weight loss sooner?
