I started Duromine yesterday. Would love to hear your experiences with it.
I'm currently 128kgs and just needed something to give my weight loss journey a kick start.
Of course at the same time I am eating well and exercising. Also drinking lots of water.
Last night I had trouble sleeping, which I was expecting. I also had a horrid headache and was a big ball of sweat. My gp warned me about these side effects but also said that if I stay strong and keep taking them, these will soon pass, once my body is used to it.
Look forward to hearing from you.

i've been on duromine on and off. with some people, the side effects get worse and worse, mind you i have lost a bit then regained immediately after. i think unless you change your eating habits permanently and keep on with the exercise, there is no miracle drug.

I absolutely agree. I am certainly not using for the long term. It's to simply give me a kick start.
I have had a dietician complete a meal plan for me and I am attending a fit club bootcamp five times a week.
I have never been so motivated to do something about my weight.
Yesterday was a horrible day. I had diarrhoea all day and night and I barely slept last night. Today I am feeling a little nauseas but I haven't had to run to the toilet. I'm hoping that going in to day five of taking the drug, my body might be starting to accept it.
I'm looking forward to weighing in on Thursday.

Hi, I've been on it now for 10 days, lost 2.6kg in the first week so that's a good start. Has definitely helped with the hunger & have felt like I've had more energy to exercise.
Downside, the sleep!! Seems to be a bit hit & miss, have had probably 2 decent sleeps, so I'm hoping that settles a little.

Not sure if this is helpful or not, but i'm most likely around your weight, last time i weighed myself i was 115 and i have only gone up since then.
But i have been walking to and from school for a week and lost 5 cm off my tummy in 7 days. School walk is 2km around trip (15min) so 4 km a day. I didn't think it would be as simple as starting walking.
Just an idea.... cant comment if it's helped my weight because scales are flat and i'm not bothered about getting batteries.

Anyone still on Duromine or come off of it & how are you going with it? I'm nearly at the end of my second month, haven't lost as much as the first, but pretty happy considering it was the festive season.
have to say though, the sleep thing gets me still. Lots of trouble sleeping & being awake for hours. That I do not like.
Exercise however has been great.. just wish it didn't hurt so much.

I only took it for 1 month and got all the side effects with no weight loss. So I stopped

I was on Duromine previously ... LOVED it weight loss wise, no one else liked being around me though lol!
I was loosing an average of 1kg a day but i was eating an apple maybe 2 a day i just wasnt hungry.
The downside, i literally could not sleep for days and i was hypersensitive to sound ... that really drove me mad. I also was a complete angry ant, probably from the lack of sleep. Not to mention the dry mouth OMG! For me the weight loss wasnt worth the side affects.

Both my sister and my aunt were on it and we're getting suicidal thoughts so they were both taken off it. They also had a few other unpleasant side effects
