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 weight loss goal. I did have the major weight loss goal and this one I managed to reach after I got off Duromine thanks to the fact that the pills helped me develop a new eating regime.

I was also not a very big fan of exercising before I started Duromine. Still, the energy and lightness I was feeling during the course helped take my butt off the couch and start exercising. I prefer cardio load and I think it suits me perfectly.

So happy my doc prescribed these to me. I am sure I wouldn’t have gotten that far without Duromine. Right now, I might be even heavier than I was back then. When I think about it, I am getting sick. So, for me, personally, Duromine was a great choice and a cool assistant. Hope I will manage to maintain weight. Good luck to everyone who’s trying to lose that extra weight.

It’s already been 4 weeks since I started using Duromine 30 mg. Read a lot about possible side effects and was quite worried I might start feeling ill. However, I only had something like a temperature raise for like half an hour after the first administration of the pills. And, of course, the cotton mouth. DRY DRY DRY! Still, it’s ok to want some water until it helps me lose weight. Keep trying to have a bottle of water with me anywhere I go and it’s been better, actually, as I started having about 2 l of water a day (sometimes a little more). I started at 93 kilos and I have reached the mark of 83 kilos. I think, it’s a great result and I am planning to go all the way till I get to the weight I feel the best way. What I changed… hmmm… I didn’t cut off any foods, but the sweet and really junk ones. As for activity: 40-60 min. of cardio 3-4 times a week. Wish I did more, but I don’t want to overload myself to drop everything one day. So I keep it safe and effective. Another change is, of course, the water. I don’t think I have reached 1 l a day before Duromine. Now, it’s more, of course. It might be one of the reasons I am losing weight so well. Love this med!

Want to add some positive ideas about losing weight with Duromine…

My excessive weight kept building on me through my entire life and, well, when it happens gradually, you stop noticing you’re getting bigger and bigger. So it happened with me, and the moment I realized what I have done with my body, it was almost too late. I started having health problems. No matter what I was doing, it seemed impossible to lose weight.

Now, I am sending my gratitude to Heaven, Fate and anything else that helped me discover Duromine until it was too late.

Duromine gave me extreme amounts of energy, which I was seriously lacking before it. This helped me get on with a serious training program. I sometimes had to train two times during a day, and have a 30-minute walk just to spend all the energy. I was lucky to lose 20 kilos and gain quite a nice shape (due to workouts, I have a very fit body).
Yet, of course, I have to admit that I wasn’t really following the advice of many people, i.e. that I should eat. I was literally starving. If it wasn’t for Duromine, I wouldn’t be able to survive on such a meager nutrition. I know that it’s not healthy, but I really needed to take this weight off of me.

As for other side effects, I can definitely outline the insomnia. Some nights, I even had to take some sleeping pills. You might say that it’s not that good, yet it worked fine. The important thing is to consult your doctor and get the most natural and safest drug.

Even despite these things, I would not think any second to start taking Duromine again, if I had to. Duromine helped me keep to a healthy eating plan without a single craving for anything “forbidden”. On my own, I would have failed. Plus, the excessive volumes of energy helped me stop being a lazy bum and bring my body to perfection.

Don’t forget to ask your doctor any question you may have, since Duromine is a drug and might require some adjustments. I had to go through a medical examination before doctor gave me the prescription. Good luck!

my friend tried losing weight with Duromine and it worked for her quite well. She lost 18 kilos in a couple of months. I decided to try it too but my doctor told me I can’t use it because he discovered I have hyperthyroidism. SO I am not going to lose weight with it, but it helped me find out the reason for my excess weight, and now I am working on that issue.  either way, Duromine did help me do something about my weight.

I have had to stop the use of During because of the negative side affects. Palpitations, anxiety, depression, elevated blood pressure, bad taste in mouth, loss of sleep and concentration and bladder issues were, unfortunately all present.
Some weight loss was recorded but unfortunately the negative effects outweighed the positive.
This product is not for me.

Hi there, I’ve been on duromine now for 9 days. I can take most side affects but not the one I experienced just recently. Anger..I turned into a crazy mad lady who was constantly angry. That was three days ago and it’s taken day 3 to start to feel normal again. I haven’t had a pill since but will take one tomorrow and see how I go. Is there anything I can do to stop this feeling of anger.

Thanks so much! I only want to lose about 8 kilo’s but this plan of pregnancy far out weighs my desire to loose weight. I am not unhealthy overweight, just find weight harder to budge at 39 year ha ha.
Thanks so much. Might try it after pregnancy (if I am successful). Many thanks for your honesty and kind words.

Using Duromine 30mg for 5 months and lost 10 kilos for now. The result is great for me. Remember to take the pills as early as you can, otherwise no sleep for you. well, for me it is like that. and also have headaches from time to time. quite bearable, especially given the result. Thinking of stopping for a month or two, as these shouldn’t be used too long without a pause.

My experience with Duromine is def a positive one. In just two 1-month courses, I managed to shed 13 kilos. That’s a huge change in my appearance, and everyone notices it. No longer on Duromine, but for those who just begin, be ready for no appetite at all. I needed to remind myself to eat every time, and still skipped food a couple of days, and lived on an orange or a tube of non-sweet yogurt. No cravings for sweets at all. Duromine helped me feel extreme focus with every task, though, the effects were lower after midday. Still felt great and enjoyed the energy on Duromine 100%.

Was not sure if Duromine will work for me, since I am in my menopause with PCOS symptoms. But it does. I feel a lot more energetic and my mood Is fantastic all the time. the result is 7 kilos in 14 days. I say, it’s good. Side effects I have are cotton mouth, which makes me drink more water. Consequently, I run to the bathroom quite often, that’s the drawback that I see. another issue is if I sleep in and don’t take it before 7 in the morning, my night’s sleep is not that good. Hope this helps anyone!

These pills are a true wonder for me! I just love the all the good effects I get form Duromine, and they helped me lose over 13 kg in 3 months. I was always active, so normally exercise 3 times a week. With all the energy I got with Duromine had to increase the amount of trainings to 5 times a week and evening walks. Otherwise, couldn’t sleep. It also helped me cut the portion size, which was probably the most important cause of my weight loss. No more cravings for chocolates at 10 PM and more fast food for lunch. ZERO junk cravings. Will do my best to maintain the weight, but if I ever gain it back, will surely rely on Duromine again.

Currently on a Duromine 30 mg course. It’s been two months. Week one showed the greatest loss of 2.7 kg, weeks 2-3-4 the loss ranged from 1.2 to 1.7 kilos. The second month again started with a big loss of 3 kilos in a week, but I added strength exercises then, and this last fourth week, the loss was only 0.8 kg. I am not giving up, nor feeling down. The overall result is great. I feel great, I look great, just 5 kilos away from my goal weight. Fingers crossed I lose them during the third month. Good luck to newcomers!

on my first day on duromine. I’ve been taking it before 20 years ago and lost 22 kilos in 2.5 months. Felt like a blind kitten – no idea what to eat, what to do, so I ate almost nothing, and had to stop using the pills before the end of the course. Side effects were bad. Now i know that i need to eat well, and properly. Wish me luck. going next week to dietician and starting from tomorrow hopping into the gym with a PT. Plan: professional diet and 3 gym sess per week + walks 3 times a week.

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 and headaches at start, but then ok. also the cotton mouth – lasted almost till the end, but i got used to it. If you get a dry mouth, my advice is to chew sugar free gum and never part with your bottle of water.

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 mood swings and a quick search on the internet showed that it was one of possible side effects. stopped D immediately. gained back 1 kilo and my own self, too. mood swings and anger lasted about 3 more days, then stopped. Still have half a pack of Duromine left and planning to try it again and see what happens. fingers crossed it goes better. weight loss was truly quick.

I see that many people report a very fast weight loss on Duromine. I was not losing it so fast and i wonder why. My weight was 123 when i started, and in 3 months i reached 110. I think that people lose a lot more when their weight is so high. Well, i had to continue using it, and it’s now been 7 months on it, and I am 85 kg now. I am happy with my current weight, but i don’t get it why it has taken me so long. I have been eating very healthy, mostly 3 meals a day, no sugars and fats in the evening. Exercise wise, everyday 2 hour walks with my dogs and got a gym membership 2 months ago, so not extremely active. may be that’s why the slow progress. i wonder if there is a certain pattern of stopping duromine after long use? is it ok if i just quit? anyone knows?

i took Duro for 5 months in a row. stopped cold turkey. big mistake. withdrawals lasted about a week. not so bad, though still unpleasant. drowsiness, nausea, no energy, but slept well. in fact, i slept a whole day in weekend. after that, felt ok. no massive increase in hunger. still maintaining the weight, after 8 months off of it.

Hi, I’m 22 and I am obese. I have been trying to lose weight through different diets and starved myself for a week, but weight almost doesn’t shift. not very into exercising, but i really want to lose weight. gained most of the weight during my first pregnancy, have a 2 year-old running around the house, so pretty active days, i would say. will duromine help me lose weight? what is the best way to use it and what should i watch out for? i want to become healthy and manage to run with my child wherever he wants to run, and play sports games with him. in general, i want to have an active life. any advice appreciated.

I’m 25, also fought with post-baby weight for a couple of years before discovering D. My doc suggested i try it and was checking up on me regularly to see if i was okay. after the first pill, felt no changes, next day and second pill and i woke up as if a superwoman. I was literally flying around the house and doing things here and there. even though i was 133 kg, i felt i was lighter than a feather. by day 4 energy level got lower, and the house was so clean you could eat from any surface in it. that was the first night with insomnia, and i felt my mind buzzing till morning light. so then i decided to get into exercising to use all the energy, and signed up for zumba classes. From that point, everything was going so quickly and so good. weight was falling off of me. I don’t know why and how, i lost 13 kilos in the first month. i knew i had to slow down because noticed skin sagging. had a 10-day massage course to tighten skin up, and lost 5 more kg during this time. I say Duromine is a miracle pill. Yes, you need to work, but it makes you work like nothing else does.

Finished the 3-month course a week ago. feeling slight increase in appetite, but nothing too drastic. it is important to learn controlling yourself. if you are used to coming home after work and immediately swallow a couple of sandwiches until your dinner is ready, and use lots of mayo and ketchup, better stop and learn patience. At least, it helped me. Without duro, i could not control myself. I decided to make an eating schedule and stick to it. it’s so much easier now to shop for groceries and take lunches with me to work. i know what i will eat. if i have a party coming on friday, for ex., I exclude grains and up my proteins the day before the party and the day after it, and do my best to stick to just vegetable dishes during the party day, so that my overall calorie content stays pretty much the same. Avoid booze when using Duromine. it made me feel sick. also drink lots of water. you get used to it with time. now i always have a bottle of water in my bag and on my work table. find the exercises that you like. if you do something that you don’t like, it’s unlikely you will stick to it in the long run. I still have 7 kilos to lose and hope i can do it without duromine already.

Really disappointed with Duromine. My BMI is quite high, weight-89, height-157. it’s already a month on the pills and i feel like i wasted my money. I almost feel no side effects, but that’s ok. the main issue is that i have no energy burst. and i read here and there, and my doc told me that i should have gotten it. was planning to use it for exercising. and nothing. i still do exercise and change the diet. i do all i can and even more and still only lost 8.5 kg. it’s not enough! I think 30 mg is too low for me. Need to get a prescription for 40 mg. Any experience on switching from Duromine 30mg to 40mg?

i switched from 30mg to 40mg for the 3 month. GP decided that i got used to the dose, because i only lost 0.6 kg in week 8. the side effects were not that bad, but i felt almost none of them when started 30 mg. everything went well for me with 40, a couple of sleepless nights and feeling out of this world for 4 days. then all was good. needed to take laxatives for constipation. still have it from time to time, 9 months post-duromine. gained 3 kg and back on monitoring calories and more exercises. Self-control – that’s the key , and duromine helped me find and develop it.

why do you think that a loss of 8.5 kg in a month is too little? what’s with the rush? you need wrinkled skin? let your body and skin adjust to new volumes. i lost 5 kilos in the first month, 3 in the second and 3.5 in the third – and i think it’s great! doctors say that a healthy weight loss is about 0.5-1 kg a week. that is, of course, if you want to maintain it easily. when losing weight quicker, we can gain it back just as quick. better think twice. i heard 40 mg is very strong and can give you severe side effects.

what is a possible reason of no weight loss on Duromine for two months? Some info about me: female, 28 y.o., 122 kg, 170 cm. took Duromine 30 mg one month, then 40 mg one month. I avoid fast food and almost no sweets. completely rejected soft drinks and no more caramel macchiatos for me. shall i go on with the third month on 40mg? I feel approximately zero effects. is this possible? does it need more time? I am a very active person, always moving. do i need more activity? any suggestions?

This happened to me a while back. Since then, I discovered I had fatty liver. So, if you’re liver is not functioning well, it can slow your metabolism down. But, when it comes to taking any medication, it’s the liver that processes your meds.

So, if your liver is not operating as it should, you can have issues metabolising meds.

So, I took a course I’d milk thistle, and prepared for duromine by drinking plenty of water and eating healthy foods.

I’ve been on duromine for three days and have lost 2 kilos so far. No side effects.

So, go to Dr and get a liver panel done. Or, just take a herb for liver health.

All the best.

maybe it’s just not working for you. i immediately felt side effects. popped the first pill and was buzzing around in 1.5 hours. lost 3 kgs in first 4 days. tomorrow’s weigh in day and i already feel smaller and lighter. a friend of mine also used duromine at 15 mg, and she lost massive 20 kgs in 3 months. and her weight was only 99 kgs. did you check your hormones and sugar? do you exercise or just move around the house? I added strength exercise and in already feel like i am getting fitter. try these

12 days in. 10 kilos lost. bad side: dry mouth with bad taste in the mouth, infrequent mood swings, once or twice a day short episodes of palpitations, feeling drained out when i don’t take Duro and sleeplessness for the first 6 nights. good side: no more desire to binge eat at night, no more desire to eat when i’m tired, bored, happy, sad, etc., no more desire to finish the whole chocolate bar after the first bite, no desire to have chocolate at all, no more drowsiness on days when i take it. my eyes are wide awake and i am 1000% focused on my tasks. Amazing! weight loss fantastic. yes, side effects definitely there. Kilograms lost cover the bad side.

Lost 20 kilos on D in three months. now sitting at 100 +- and weight doesn’t move. but i became a gym rat during these three months, so gaining muscles now while weight stays still. guess, i am still losing fat. been trying to lose it for 5 years and nothing worked. 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 a lot. at times, i thought i will not be able to get out of the pool, and when i did, my legs were shaking. the results deserved every single effort, and every single pizza slice that i didn’t have.

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, but doc doesn’t give it to me just yet. says i need to take a break from these pills. so now it’s one month of maintaining weight and then again on Duromine. thinking about switching to protein and carbs alternation diet. sounds like it’s a great idea. also like the mediterranean. EVERYBODY, you need to work with Duromine and not expect that it’ll do the job for you!

hey, thanks for asking. finishing my second month on my second attempt with Duromine. side effects totally different from the first time – severe dry mouth, constipation, dizziness – until i upped my water intake. everything calmed down and i continued. oh, i only gained 0.5 kg in between the courses, so not a big gain – yippee. chose the mediterranean diet and continued with my personal all-time favorite – hot yoga. a loss of 7 kgs, not 10, in 2 months. i think, it’s just fine like that. if i don’t lose anymore weight without Duromine, it’s ok, i’ll work on maintaining my current shape. Oh, and the dose was 30 mg all the way.

I’m Male, 42yrs old with a starting weight of 138kgs. Been taking the 40mg of Duromine for one month now and have lost nearly 15kgs. Weighed in today at 123kgs and I feel fantastic!!. I was one of those people who did no exercise and was never “full” no matter how much I ate, Duromine has really giving me back control over my eating habits and also giving me the energy to wake up at 4am every morning (Mon-Sat) and hit the gym for my 1hr cardio session and 30mins on the weights circuit. Yes the first week is hard and my body was sore but I had the mindset of “suck it up and get on with it”, my unhealthy way of living for the past 15 years especially was driven by excuses “I’m tired”, “I have work to do”, “I dont have time”, “my knee hurts”….. so while on Duromine every morning when my alarm went off at 4am the first thing that came to my mind that I said over and over again was “No Excuses….. No Excuses”.. and it worked. I was up and gone and on the treadmill 20mins later. I still have another 15kgs to loose before I’ll be happy with my weight so I have another couple of months of hard graft ahead of me as the weight loss will get harder as I slim down more but I’m not feeling sorry for myself one single bit. The way I see it is that I’ve spent the last 42years of my life making poor food choices with no exercise so what’s 3 months of watching my calorie intake, eating whole foods and regular increased intensity exercise in comparison. My adivce is to don’t just take the pill and think miracles are going to happen, stop the excuses and push yourself. Get the mind right and the legs will follow!. I honestly feel amazing already with only 14kgs down, imagine how I’m going to feel when I’m 30kgs down! That’s my goal and that’s what I’m focused on now! I can’t wait to get there.

Day 4 today. feels great and very energized! forgot i ever felt hunger in my life. still trying to eat at least something, a fruit here, a toast there, nothing substantial though, just don’t feel like it. chose fruits and toasts for the glucose. used to be a heavy sweet tooth. scared of weaning off sugar cold turkey. read it all about sugar withdrawals. already had headaches a couple of days in a row, since starting duromine, feels a lot better today and also slept well finally. a bit jitters and super focus, like a spider man, see and hear things i never noticed existed. thinking of taking it every other day. nothing too bad, but probably a bit too strong for me. 30 mg. besides, such dosing schedule will help me extend one pack for longer time. time will show if it works. right now i am simply happy. no more excuses for not training. smashed a good HIIt today and still have enough energy for work.

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.

23-y.o. Duromine beginner. day three only and i already know that i will succeed. on the first day the pill gave me so much energy that i was jumping. not walking. nothing i could do with it. barely ate anything. never liked drinking water, now it even tastes great! no sleep first night and the same energy on the second day. same no eating just drinking. it’s day three and i already had like 3 liters of water, and it’s just lunch time. no weighing in yet, as i don;t want to get discouraged if nothing happens with my weight. not sure what i should eat, so any advice welcomed. exercising – choosing between a gym membership and an exercise machine to use at home. share your experience, which is better to choose. good luck all you slimmer out there!

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

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 well over your diet. you need it to be balanced and you should be able to keep it when you stop duromine, or you risk gaining all the weight back! good luck girl!

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.

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.

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 before Duromine. My personal best sleeping pill lol. Besides that, i also have a dry mouth and slowly swollen tongue, probably from the dry mouth. feels like i scratch my tongue with my teeth. need to find a remedy for that. pretty painful already. weight loss is not that huge as expected – just 4 kilos in two weeks. on the other hand, i was struggling to lose at least 200 grams in so many years, that this result is great. think i need to up the dose to 30 mg. from all the reviews, i see that people usually use this dose. will see how it goes. fingers crossed.
starting to exercise on Monday. did not risk to engage into trainings until i lose at least some weight. eating healthy, no cravings for sugars and fatty foods – so definitely easier to stick to proper nutrition. Going great, motivation high, bring on the new week!

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.

no energy whatsoever. how come you all have it and i need to make efforts to drag my body from bed to the kitchen. had to take a few days off work. headaches unbearable. i am 135 kg and was prescribed 40 mg. appetite suppression? no idea, i feel so sick that don’t even think of eating anything at all. it’s day 3 and i live on water. when will this end? it is supposed to get better, but when? didn’t hit the scales, but my face looks like i am a slave on a stone mine and work 24/7 for two months – face is white and these baggy eyes, horrible! how to increase the energy level?

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.

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 quite often. stepping on the scales and watching the indicator going up to 89, i knew i had to do something, the older we get, the more troubles our excess weight causes. so i switched to clean eating, most times vegetarian, add some healthy fats and whole grains. started feeling a lot better, not that bloated and seems the skin looks better. exercising is yoga. been living like this for 3 years and i love it, but the weight stands still at 86. so, had to resort to duromine. by now, i am at 82.5 and happy with that. slow and steady wins the race, especially at my age. Anyone in my age category who used Duromine or uses now? how are you going?

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 were hard, like not eating what my family has for dinners every day. appetite suppression helps greatly though. no exercising for now, just longer walking with my dogs. 5.5 kilograms down and counting. good luck to you and to me and to everyone out there of the same age trying to lose weight and be healthy for themselves and their loved ones!

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 lose this stupid weight

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 stagnation, add weight exercises. always change something in your routine every 2 weeks at least. worked for me. 2 months on duro – bye-bye 14 kilo.

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 hardly survived these first 4 days on D. a total of 9 hours of sleep. thank god i am used to freezing food and my kids didn’t have to starve. i had no forces to cook anything, even getting out of bed was a struggle. i read somewhere that it might help to change things if you skip duromine for a couple of day, so i stopped and let myself sleep well during the next 4 days. then started back on D, and everything is soooo different. no sleeping issues, more energy, VERY dry mouth and no appetite at all. finishing my first month and a loss of 7 kilos keeps me motivated to go on. yes, these are expensive. results prove the purchase was worth every cent.

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 continue. still not going to stop and will stick to duromine until my doctor tells me to stop. I want to get to the goal no matter what. lucky, no side effects, and no withdrawals when skipped some days. dunno if i should take a break. too scared of gaining weight back during the break.

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

did not use these pills myself. my son was prescribed. too obese and incapable of losing weight on his own. was better before. yes, he is loosing weight, but i am afraid for him. not sleeping properly, easily gets snappy and angry, and started yelling at times. i also often see him depressed. got into a really big fight with his dad two days ago, smashed his fist into the wall and has a bone fracture now. what is this drug? he doesn’t want to stop, wants to find a girl and have a family. who will want him with such temper? be careful, i would not use it, despite the weight loss.

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, and you’re good to go

i only had fast heartbeat in the first week, then all went back to normal and i got into boxing classes three times a week. great thing and definitely not boring. i was dripping wet every time. they work great for toning your body and adding strength. the more muscles you have, the faster you lose weight.
