when i started duromine my weight reached a whopping mark of 149 kilos. first, i was given the 15 mg dose, but it only worked for 2 weeks, so we agreed with my doc that i will start 30 mg and come back in a week for a health check, just in case. I was also advised to switch to low carbs and start with long walks, even if just in a slow pace, and so i did. I also increased water to… no idea, maybe 4-5 liters a day. this particular step was the easiest of all, because i… Read more »

if i have 7 kg to lose, will Duromine also work for me, or works for huge weight only?

Bella

“if i have 7 kg to lose, will Duromine ”)
it is unlikely that you will get your hands on duromine with so little weight to lose. doctors are reluctant to prescribe it even to those with a BMI over 30, and you surely don’t get into the category of obese, so better try to lose weight with clean eating and strength exercising. besides, with such low weight, you might get severe side effects, so better don’t risk.

desperate. i lost 6 kg in the first week on duromine, and this second week it’s just 1 kg. i did not cheat with my meals and switched mainly to raw and boiled veggies, boiled chicken breast and some cottage cheese. that’s it. i also exercise daily for 40-60 minutes.with all the efforts, my question: am i doing something wrong? what can it be?

Bretta
Guest
Bretta

desperate? you? that’s funny! what did you expect? losing 10 kg a week? besides, you always lose water weight when you beginning a diet, hence a high weight loss in the first week. then you begin losing fat, and that happens if you do everything correctly. make a food diary, count calories. your weight loss can stop if you don’t eat enough, just the same way as it stops when you overeat. if you also exercise heavily while not feeding your body enough, your body goes into starvation mode and tries to save every single calories that you give it.… Read more »

about a year of night shifts made me pile up 20 extra kilos. never had any issues with excess weight before, so anyone who’s offered some extra money for working at night, don’t agree, unless you’re ready to get fat and then trying to get rid of all excess. it was hard for me to stop eating crap because working during the night also makes you pretty hungry, as you need energy, and food is the most accessible resource, especially fast carb and fats with sugars.

hey all. not sure if i would be able to handle the 30 mg dose. i started with Duromine 15mg and continued on it till the end of the second month. Then, doc told me to have a month-long break and here i am starting another month of Duromine. I was not obese at the start, but i couldn’t shift the weight that piled on over the last 5 years due to change of work, poor sleep and bad, like really bad eating habits. When you have no time to cook, you can either chew on celery all day long,… Read more »

i read a lot of comments where people said that 15 mg did not do much work for them. how come you get such a good effect. i was put immediately on 40mg, and side effects are strong. insomnia, headaches, dizziness and nausea in the morning, besides i started getting tired by the evening, and also some hunger pangs appear from time to time

it took me 2 weeks to defeat my fear for side effects, all stories where people get severe side effects kept me from even opening the box. but i did it. i finally did it, and it’s been a week already. shouldn’t have waited for such a long time to start this, as i am not feeling anything horrible, and didn’t get any serious side effects within the first days either. at first, weight suppression was almost insignificant. i even though that it doesn’t work for me at all. this morning is the first time when i got a dry… Read more »

finishing my second pack of duromine and proud to say that i managed to lose 25 kgs. no, it wasn’t an easy way, i was barely sleeping most time during the first month, but still felt energized during the day. it is important that you actually do change your habits, both eating and being active. you need to eat healthy. even if you don’t feel hungry at all, eat, and only the good stuff. i cut additional sugar, bread and fried foods. only cook by steaming, boiling, grilling or baking. if you have any questions or any concerns about the… Read more »

wish you were more precise about your routine. the weight loss is huge and i wish i could achieve the same result. I am just at the beginning and my goal loss is 32 kg. of course, i do realize that I won’t lose it in 4 weeks, i need to be realistic. i am sure that it won’t happen in 8 weeks either. what was your weight when you started?

sedentary lifestyle is a horrible thing that can happen to a traumatized ex athlete, which had to stop exercising at all. over a period of 6 months, i gained 20 kilos. I never thought that i was capable of ‘enlarging’ so much. i guess, 0 activity after hours of trainings every day with the same nutrition schedule don’t work well. i have been really embarrassed of meeting new people and going out in general. the feeling of approaching depression made me realise that i need to change something, so i stopped consuming starchy foods and signed up for a pool… Read more »

not my favorite pill AT ALL!!! It changed me completely. mood swings were so extreme that i thought my brain and heart were blowing. here i am, happy and laughing, and in a minute i am about to smash a chair against the wall only because my pencil is not sharp enough. it was impossible to control myself. i thought that all i needed was to master self control and i will succeed. stupid. it’s impossible to control something that doesn’t depend on you. i am sure that all these happen due to the fact that duromine affects your brain.… Read more »

how long it takes to lose weight on Duromine? Doc gave me a prescription for 30mg, and before i begin, i wanted to know more. I already know a lot about the side effects, and what about the actual weight loss. when does it start? how long do i need to take it to lose weight?

I’m the same, except on 2 kgs and was eating well and doing high intensity workouts at least 5 times! Did you find anything or any program that worked for you?
I’ve tried Keto aswell, and had the same results- less than 2kgs over 3 months.
I have about 25kgs to loose to be in the healthy weight range

Grace
Guest

ridiculous question, probably the silliest i ever heard. if you read a lot about the side effect, you should already know that we’re different and we all have different response to duromine. so what makes you think that everything is the same in every person when it comes to weight loss. some people lose 5 kgs in two days, while others need a month to achieve the same result. it all depends on how much weight you have at the beginning.

Lost 4 kgs in just a week on Duromine, so looks like this stuff really does work. still, the appetite suppression was higher during the first 3 days. Now i notice that i do get hungry from time to time. Still, it is totally different from the way I used to treat food before. I was literally obsessed with food and was always seeking for some junk to satisfy my desire. Right now, I am not that into choosing something exquisite, i mean i can make healthy food choices and not crave for anything bad. This surprises me and makes… Read more »

I didn’t tell anyone too. people who don’t have issues with excess weight and never had to struggle with it, or even those who did lose weight through simply avoiding bread and pasta think that you’re a wimp and if you say that you take slimming pills, you will forever be spoken of as someone who lost weight because of the pills, and not through your hard work and struggle.

started using duromine after losing 12 kilos on my own through diet and moderate exercise. but i plateaued and my doc suggested i try this med to kick start the weight loss again. what can i say. i lost 4 kilos in 2 days. if i just started dieting and stuff, i would have said it was the retained water, but i was already on a weight loss program, so it’s probably not the case. in fact, i am not sure if the effects kicked in already, as i do get hungry at times, and i gave in to my… Read more »

I say, you need to change your attitude towards yourself if you really want duromine to work for you. otherwise, it’s just a waste of resources. to achieve success, you always need to push harder with every coming day. Remember, it is your inactivity (in most cases, no offense) and your inattentive choice of foods that brought your to the threshold of your doctor’s office asking for a duromine prescription. If this is about you (some people need to reassess their actions and actually admit that it is about them), this is the moment when you should grab the hold… Read more »

unfortunately, duromine did not work for me at all. Instead of high energy i was drained out all the time. yes, i did not eat as i normally would because there was no hunger. but this feeling of being constantly fatigued was too much to bear, and i stopped taking duromine after two weeks. no weight loss, by the way. it was a total waste for me. no hope for a weight loss already…

Amazing feeling, like I could do anything and run a marathon without having a troubled breathing. 4.8 kg lost in 7 days. everything went well until week 2 began. seems to me that almost nothing different is going on in my body. i sleep well, i do get hungry, i still do my best to stick to less food, but it seems to me that the effects are no… Read more »

you can try skipping a couple of days, and the start taking it again. it helped me. though, the effect got lower by the end of the second month, and i was on 30 mg. so i asked my doc for a higher dosage, and went on 40 mg for the 3 month. side effects were STRONG for like 5 days no sleep, then got better and a loss of 14 kg overall. was worth it.

everyone’s different, i also started on 40 mg, side effects were too bad, and i switched to 30 mg for a month and a half, then got back on 40 mg – felt better this time with no appetite, then finished with the remaining 30 mg. mild withdrawals, like no energy for a week. then feeling fine. hunger did not came back yet, fingers crossed, it doesn’t come back at all. plan to go back on it in a couple of months and will probably stick to the same dosing regime. worked for me.

not going to say that duromine is a miracle pill, because you are the one to do all the work. It just helps you a bit to stick to your plan without feeling extremely hungry. I did notice that I could exercise for longer time with duromine, still it is important to monitor your heart rate, since duromine increases it already,a dn when you exercise, it increases even more. so watch out. it is very important to think ahead, i mean when you finish Duromine, you need a plan and you need to observe it. otherwise you gain it all… Read more »

did you get your appetite back when you stopped duromine? any withdrawals? I am about to begin my first month, and i am worried if I will not simply waste my money.

Moira

don’t start duromine, if you’re not willing to change anything about your lifestyle. you’re already not into exercising, but you need it. if you don’t exercise and carefully watch your eating, not just do your best to stick to it, but actually observe all the rules, it’s a waste of time and money. focus and use these 3 months to the maximum.

finished 12 weeks on duromine 3 months ago. sharing my personal post-duromine experience. hunger did come back, but definitely not as strong as it used to be. I managed to make myself used to a regime, and i eat three main meals a day and two snacks, usually a handful of nuts or a fruit, or vegetable salad, or a smoothie. it’s a lot easier to fight hunger when you know the exact time when you will eat and just distract yourself until the right moment comes. drinking water also helps. i did not gain any weight, not lost any… Read more »

29 kg? that’s all i needed to lose, but I only lost 16 kg in three months. why does it happen like that? i am not giving up, i have a 2-month break from duromine, and then will take a second course, so hopefully will lose the remaining 13 kilos. i do pretty much the same what you do: stay firmly in accordance with my eating plan and i also exercise 3 times a week in the gym, and walk to my work and back home.

Male of 58. used Duromine last year to lose some weight that I gained after a knee trauma. Paired with low-calorie diet and swimming sessions with a physician resulted in a 15-kg weight loss. health check showed an overall health improvement, and my knee feels a lot better carrying a lighter man. i continued doing the same things when i went off duromine and managed to lose 8 more kilos within an 8-month period. it’s all up to you and your doctor to make a good program, considering your health concerns.

Been on Duromine for 6 weeks now. Started at 102 kg, and now, six weeks later I am already at 90 kg. That’s probably the lowest weight I had in years. Nothing too difficult with eating, just cut down on portion sizes, chose a very small bowl and keep to this size, whatever it is, soup, salad or rice. No frying, using very little oil just as salad dressing, along with lemon juice and mustard. Prefer having my dishes baked in the oven, sometimes in foil, or on a grill.

Great result, pretty similar to my story, though I had to struggle my way through the side effects. was feeling dizzy and nauseous for the first week. then the dry mouth kicked in really bad and i began drinking heaps of water, which really helped. occasional headaches, though not sure if Duromine related. after the second month, weight loss slowed down, and i only managed to lose 5 kg in the last month. Still pleased with weight loss and will surely use Duromine, if I ever need to.

Oh I love Duromine! Nothing serious to report about the adverse reactions, so purely enjoying the weight loss. not using it though for appetite suppression, as i never was a heavy eater. My issue is that my metabolism is too slow. Wasn’t sure if Duromine can help with this, but it does 100%. yes i agree it is an expensive weight loss booster. so not advising to use it without changing your lifestyle, i.e. nutritional habits and physical activity. if you take Duromine, be so kind to do your best to help it get you rid of all the extra… Read more »

i felt all the effects after the first pill. i was on 30 mgs. in just an hour dry mouth came in, that night was sleepless and i could not eat more than a tablespoon of food at a time. my friend though did not feel anything for the first week. i think it needs time in some people for the effect to build up, so my advice is to take it a little more. things might change.

been on duromine some time ago, so just to share my experience. always thought that eating little will be great for weight loss, so started with 2 shakes instead of meals and one small veg&chicken dish. though that if this doesn’t help, nothing will, and it didn’t help. i thought that duromine was just a myth. then was advised to up my calories and have more real food, and things immediately started moving, lost 5 kilos in a week of normal healthy eating. yes, tiny meals, yes frequent, yes exercising – put it all together and top off with duromine,… Read more »

had the same problem. stopped taking it for 3 days and then started again. it helped kick start the action. had to do this 3 times till finished the first pack. then asked for higher dose. worked a lot better and stronger appetite suppression, was not hungry at all. continued on the high dose. lost 13 kg in 3 months. wish it was more, but also good. only problem my blood pressure went a bit higher than it was before. hoping it will come back to normal levels soon

Two pregnancies and 5 years ago i was 70 kg. now, i am at horrifying 105, and i need to lose these. actually tried. worked with a nutritionist and a sports physiologist, and nothing, not a kilogram. i know that duromine is a last resort for all desperate dieters, and i am one of the kind. been worried how it will affect me, since raising my kids on my own, and always need to be 100% calm and attentive. possibility of insomnia scared me, as i started sleeping all night long just recently, when my youngest abandoned breastfeeding. well, i… Read more »

3 months done and dusted. even though the dosage is 40 mg, i am quite far from my weight loss goal. only managed to shed 10 kilos. Doesn’t look like a dramatic weight loss i was hoping for. On the other hand, i wasn’t able to lose anything at all. i know that my main issue is the fast food and takeouts. Not into these now. duromine completely cut the need to eat crap every day. No more coke for me either. tried to replace with diet coke, made me puke. tastes disgusting while on these pills. Hopefully this will… Read more »

on Duro for 9 months, and everything’s ok. Feeling better on it. used to be cranky before, and always tired. now i’m the boss in my life and a happy person. will not give up duromine. not taking every day though, just occasionally. but my life is so much better, and weight loss also assists the happy feeling

I am 56 years YOUNG and it is my week 2 on Duromine 30 mg going to an end. Was hesitant to try it because of my age and some health conditions. Luckily, everything’s goin great so far. of all side effects that could have happened, I only have headaches from time to time. not sure if these will ever until i finish duromine, cause i am prone to them. the only concern is the blocked nose. already scheduled a consultation, hope nothing serious. through my life, i never was a healthy eater, and enjoyed having a couple of cocktails… Read more »

it’s so great to find your feedback here! I was prescribed Duromine a month ago, but only on it for 3 weeks. was hesitant to start after reading all the horror stories. I guess, it’s always playing a game of chance with these pills. those lucky will lose the weight without side effects, and those unlucky should thank God that they survived. I am more on the lucky side. need regular kidney function checks. yes, troublesome, but otherwise it was impossible for me to use duromine. the first blood test was okay, so i continue. Some changes in my life… Read more »

Giving Duromine a second try. One year ago was on it for 3 months and the weight loss was just 3 kg. I want everything to be different this time, but i don’t know what i did wrong then and what i should change this time to achieve higher results. what i did was brisk walking for 30-60 minutes every day, except for weekends. i think I messed up with my eating. have no idea what to eat on Duromine. does anyone have a good meal plan? please share your ideas and menus that worked for you. desperately wanting to… Read more »

before you advise anything, ask the person if her kidneys are 100% ok. protein diets are dangerous for the kidneys, so should be used with caution. i suggest you having protein+cereal breakfast, vegetables+protein+grains lunch, vegetables+protein dinner. vegetables should make the most part of the dishes. if you feel hunger better snack on something healthy, like nuts, seeds or veggies, fruits. do not allow strong hunger. if you feel hungry soon after a meal, have a glass of water, our bodies often confuse hunger and thirst. in general, drink more water, it’s a requirement for duro use. if you see weight… Read more »

so, let’s sum it all up. you eat nothing, you don’t sleep and you wonder why no energy. I don’t know what to say… why are people so keen into harming themselves with their own hands, and then complaining about the “bad drug”. do it correctly for god’s sake! this med is too strong to play with it like that.

It’s so disappointing to be a whale in a family of skinny people… diets – name it and i tried it – nothing helps. Two weeks ago, my doc suggested i try Duromine. Started with 15mg, since my BP is a bit high because of the weight – 112 k. first days felt over-energised and even light-headed. not the most pleasant sensation, when you’re all over the place and then the world starts turning in front of your eyes. sleeping was better than usually, which is weird. i was told that i might have insomnia and i sleep better than… Read more »

I couldn’t bear 30 mg. Started with this dose, and was feeling so bad: nausea, stomach cramps, heavy chest, dizziness. I gave up the thought of ever using Duromine, until the doc said there is a lower dose. 15 mg were a lot lighter, and I could sleep and go through the days with just the cotton mouth and bad breath. some excessive sweating too. but these were bearable. All three months been on 15 mg. lost 18 kgs. planning to use it in a couple of months to lose 10 more kilos and reach my healthy weight.

Finishing my second month on duromine 30 mg. everything’s great. side effects rather bearable, nothing extreme. tough i thought i will quit it at start, because had a pain in the chest and heavy breathing for a couple of day, but then these went away. exercising, eating clean, lost 12 kilos. pleased with what’s going on. my worries are if i will gain all the weight back, as many people write, when i discontinue duromine, and will i have withdrawals after i finish the course? These worry me very much.

Sara

i had half a pack of 15 mg left, so i used them to slowly get off duromine. first alternating 30 mg and 15 mg in different days, then took just the 15 mg, then took it every other day, and stopped. no bad withdrawals. Appetite increased though, but i am in control.

didn’t work for me. blood pressure immediately jumped up and heart was racing like crazy. had to call an ambulance. was told to immediately stop taking it. i had a slightly increased BP though, but never thought that it would be such a big problem. my advice is to always have a good health check before you take your prescription and start using duromine. For me, it was too strong. feeling fine now. but lost hope to every lose weight.

i have an exercise machine at home and i love it, because i prefer exercising early in the morning, before going to work. I also enjoy taking a good shower and using different scrubs to make skin toned and improve the circulation. we need that when we lose weight in a fast pace, otherwise we’ll turn into Shar pei dogs, and then it’s just the plastic surgery. better prevent that. besides, having an exercise machine at home, you have no excuses like it’s raining, cold, etc. outside. With duromine, there should be no excuses. we only have 3 months. think… Read more »

I chose gym membership and PT sessions. i really lacked motivation to lose weight, and all these bodybuilders around really helped me get a grip of myself and stop eating crap and work over my body. 6 months later, i am 28 kilos lighter and i don’t know how many muscle kilos heavier. nutrition can be the key, but without exercising you will not achieve an attractive body, so suit yourself

WIth Duromine, mission accomplished. I was counting the calories and added 1-2 protein shakes to replace 1-2 meals a day. the rest was healthy foods, like lots of veggies and protein, and some grains. water about 4 liters a day. started exercising from day 1. swimming helped me… Read more »

hey dude, did what dose did you take? any side effects? need to lose about 30-35 kg, so considering to use duromine. the side effects worry me. did you have any changes in libido? i found reports that you can lose your sex drive because of D or that it gets difficult to make him up and standing

Drake
Guest

i was on 30 mg. felt pretty well – 3 nights no sleep, then 4 nights of troubled sleep. took a weekend of D to sleep. then it got great. appetite suppression was huge. that’s why i switched to protein shakes. not possible to eat anything. sex drive was high in the sky, not a single sign of erectile dysfunction whatsoever. Duromine actually made me more active and long-standing lol. Good luck mate! Eat clean and work your ass of in the gym.

Hot yoga fan here! 3 to 4 classes a week with almost no results until Duromine came in. had to stop coffee and green tea. now sleeping better. first two weeks. slept very little and started feeling fatigued already. With no coffee and green tea, sleep like a log. so more energy for everyday stuff and to increase exercising. after 6 months of hot yoga and a loss of just 4 kgs, i managed to lose 15 kgs with duromine in 3 months. i think it’s impressive. wanted to get another script, since i have 10 more kilos to lose,… Read more »

Anyone here? Planning on taking Duromine 30mg for 3 months. Have a couple of parties planned during this period. And the question is: can I have any alcohol while on Duromine? Does anyone know? Who boozed while on D? Any side effects? Maybe not take it on party days? will it stop weight loss?

My experience with drinking alcohol while on D is horrible. I had no idea that you shouldn’t mix the two. It was not just a hangover, I thought i will throw out my brain. worst headache ever. not sure though if it was the D, but i never felt like that before or after. I did not drink a drop of alcohol until finishing the course. Btw, I lost 18 kgs, and i was on 15 mg first, and two months on 30 mg. 15 was too weak for me, and 30 was just fine. Lots of energy, some insomnia… Read more »

What can I say… I love Duromine! These pills seem to have some magic dust inside. However, I did get the side effects, and it was just a single one – the headaches. I am not so good at having to endure anything at all, so that was a bit troublesome. However, Ibuprofen did slightly take the headaches off, and in a week they were all gone. I guess, it’s the time my body needed to get used to Duromine. I managed to lose about 22 lbs in 16 weeks, which was a great start. In fact this was my… Read more »

My story with duromine started very well. not too many side effects. the notorious dry mouth and some nausea for the first week, then slight constipation. weight loss was going well – lost 3.8 kg in the first week and 2 more in the second week. Then i started feeling that something was not right. I could burst in tears all of a sudden and in 15 minutes be laughing like mad. in the evening i was feeling rather angry than tired, and all my family was getting their part of this rage. I realized it was duromine causing these… Read more »
