if i have 7 kg to lose, will Duromine also work for me, or works for huge weight only?
“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?
first of all, you need to focus on the thought that you managed to lose 7 kilos in 2 weeks. that is a great result, so many people would consider it an accomplishment and have a higher motivation. always search for the good side. you can continue your plan for one more week and see how it goes. if nothing changes, vizit your doctor and inform him about everything that is going on with you.
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.
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
if you remember, please tell more about the jillian michaels program and how it works with duromine, if your heart rate reacted well to this load.
sounds like a great idea. both are intended for boosting metabolism. you go girl! show that excess fat who’s the boss.
that’s a great advice for everyone, especially those who use duromine. if you don’t want to cry later, watching all kilos coming back, do everything consistently, day by day.
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?
either you were overly obese before the beginning, or you are a lucky witch, which loses weight in a snap of fingers. lol how did you do it????!!!
same things were happening with my wife. i thought that she was schizophrenic. i had no idea that she was taking something to lose weight. once she confessed and i read the leaflet everything got clear. do not use this drug
i am just at the beginning of the course. and i am on 15 mg. found myself crying over a broken nail yesterday… is this a symptom? i never cry in public, and then i just couldn’t stop.
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?
scales showed a loss of 4 kilos in 5 days, and that’s it. i finished the whole pack and no more weight loss. not sure why
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.
i saw weight loss within the first 3 days, i lost 1.7 kg. then, until the end of the week i lost additional 1.2 kg. i started exercising immediately, and switched to healthy diet that my dietologist developed.
that’s right girls, don’t tell anyone. i thought i had a best friend and told her that i take Duromine while losing weight. once we had a fight, and that was the moment when everyone found out about them. i was so pissed off hearing people to say that “oh, so that’s why you lost all that weight” and the kind… let this be your little secret. it’s nobody’s business
do your best to stick to a healthy eating diet plan and also avoid living on a single apple a day. or you might have more headaches.
how did you lose those 12 kilos before duromine? bravo to you!
Is there any special diet to follow while on Duromine? Anyone?
hey, how did you do?
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…
did not get the energy i was hoping for. how come someone has it and others don’t. was planning to use it for exercise and my plan totally failed. lost just 4 kilos in three months. ridiculous for the money paid.
Congrats! Fantastic result and definitely efforts worth applause. now you need to stick to these healthy habits to maintain your new weight. Well done!
i was also advised to try Duromine before I have my gastric band surgery. so scared of anything alien to be put inside my body. will give duromine a try and pray for the same great result as you have. though i have a lot more to lose.
i guess we need sometimes something that opens our eyes, and we need to be scared to actually do something about our laziness and poor eating habits. best of luck to you and wish you to avoid the surgery as well.
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.
second month in, and i am taking it every other day. feels like it’s too strong for me. 30 mg. probably would die on 40 mg every day.
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.
i failed at maintaining it. lost 20 kilos before my wedding and gained it all back during the first year. was thinking of trying it again, before i get pregnant. if i gain even more weight during pregnancy, i will go crazy. how long should i be off duromine before getting pregnant? anyone knows?
if you are trying to conceive a baby at the moment, you should not take duromine, since this medication is contraindicated for use during pregnancy. if you want to lose weight before falling pregnant, use reliable birth control methods and talk to your doctor about the best interval between duromine and further attempts to conceive. Keep in mind that duromine should not be used during breastfeeding either, so better make a good plan to play it safe for both you and your future child.
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. My main issue is the size of my meals. I already do my best to stick to healthy nutrition. not sure about exercising though, not really into it.
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.
thanks for sharing! very motivating story! i am at my beginning, 146 kg, so a long long journey ahead. you gave me the confidence i needed!
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.
did your doctor have any age-related concerns? i am 55 and also thinking of using Duromine. have a slow metabolism and some issues with fighting my evening cravings. i am afraid that i might be rejected because i my BP always goes higher when i am at doctor’s.
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.
Try getting into the gym, mate. Started losing a lot faster once i hit the gym. good luck!
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.
no bad nor good effects 4 days on Duromine. hunger still the same. anyone had the same thing? did it start working?
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.
i also have lowered libido. did not think it comes from duromine… too bad. will have to stop. i also have excessive sweating and constipation, not much weight loss, but just a week on it. side effects too bad.
what exercises did you do? how was your heart rate? i’m on day 3 and when i only get on the treadmill immediately have a fast heartbeat.
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.
Wow, what a result! i am just at the beginning, and it’s hard for now. no sleep, headache is killing me, dry mouth, constipation and something’s not right with my period. running late, and I never do. feels like this whole idea is not for me. after your story, i think i will give it a try and continue, hope the bad effects go away.
11 days on Duromine, and i think its not working. first 3 days was ready to run up the walls, so much energy, no hunger, very dry mouth. now, i don’t feel any of these. all i feel is hunger. no matter what and how much i eat, always hungry. and i feel really drowsy, not even a 10-hour sleep helps me feel energised. does it mean that my body got used to it or what? what should i do?
i have the same issue, nothing seems to be going on, like it was at start. no dry mouth, no nothing. is there anything in this world which will ever help me lose weight. i’m desperate
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
this drug should not be used more than three months in a row. be careful
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
lucky you. had to stop it, felt like dying, still recovering
i switched to high protein diet. search for it in google, you’ll get tons of options.
i simply switched to lite n easy 1200 calories. with duromine and dance classes – perfect match. 10 kilos down and counting
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.
did the same mistake. ended up in hospital with an IV line in my arm and no more duromine for me ever.
I also lost pitiful 2 kilos in 10 days on 15 mg. When switched to 30 mg, things got A LOT better. good luck! get ready for worse side effects
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.
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 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
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
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.
great results. did you start a new course of Duromine? what was your dose the first time?
great results! do you exercise? what do you do? I wonder if it can help me lose weight without exercising. had a severe knee trauma, hence the weight gain. gp advised duro. side effects freak me out. not sure if i should try it
i do exercise. swimming pool 2 times a week, 2 weight trainings, 2 cardio trainings, one rest day
Not sure if this duromine is as strong as i read. 3 day already and feel just my normal self. took the pill 2 hours ago and nada! no energy, no dry mouth. always tired. eating hasn’t changed. eat like i always did: a fruit and coffee in the morn, fruit and crisps for lunch, meat and veggies in the evening. where’s the weight loss? what’s going on? does it do anything to anyone at all?
hey, it’s just your third day. give it some time. doesn’t always work with the very first pill.
with such menu, i would die! eat something good and a bit more in the day. too many fruits. switch to veggies. and exercise. without exercising duromine worked very slowly for me. once i added daily trainings, weight fell off.
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?
I had no problems with alcohol. did not stop duromine those days
It is not recommended to consume alcohol with Duromine. Be careful. better not take Duromine on days when you plan to consume alcohol and the next day, as well, until your body cleanses of alcohol products.
Jennifer, thank you very much for your feedback and congratulations on your weight loss! I also hope you will manage to maintain your current weight and will never go back to the weight you had. Best of luck to you, too!
