Why am I still hungry on Duromine?
Last updated on May 29th, 2018
Duration of the anorectic activity of Duromine can reach 24 hours. Some people start feeling very hungry only in 7-8 hours after the administration of one Duromine dose.
The reasons why obese people are still hungry on Duromine may differ. They include the following:
Irregular dietary regimen
Even if a person does not feel hungry, he is recommended to eat 4 to 5 times a day. Frequent consumption of small portions of food extends the feeling of satiety and interrupts the appetite.
Improperly chosen diet
Diets that contain an insufficient amount of meat, vegetables and fruit deprive the body of essential nutrients. Such nutrition is often accompanied by constant hunger and depressed mood.
Insufficient water intake
Thirst can often be mistaken for hunger. It is enough to drink a glass of warm water or a cup of green tea, and the stomach spasms and attacks of the haunting hunger will cease.
Frequent consumption of alcohol-containing drinks
Even small amounts of alcohol pushes to overeat and consume more calories. The reason for this is the active production of the gastric juice by the stomach walls.
Incorrectly selected dose of the drug
If increased appetite returns soon after the administration of a Duromine capsule, the daily dose of this anorectic drug can be increased to a maximum of 40 mg.
Weakening of the therapeutic effect may indicate tolerance to Duromine (Phentermine) effect.
If the patient avoids food, his body does not get enough protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, required for normal metabolism.
