Why am I still hungry on Duromine?

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.

Even if a person feels no hunger throughout the entire day after the morning dose of Duromine, he still needs to eat at least 3-4 times a day.

If the patient avoids food, his body does not get enough protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, required for normal metabolism.

25 y.o. female, current weight 85 kg, height 160 cm, goal weight 62 kg. Doctor prescribed Duromine 30 mg in the morning. It does help me control hunger during the day, but I start feeling hungry closer to the evening and it’s hard to deal with this evening hunger. What should I do? Should I ask for more? I though Duromine suppresses hunger for the entire day. Need your advice!

Hi Jamie! Are you eating small healthy portions 4-5 times a day? If you aren’t, the body will think you are starving yourself and store more fat! Just be cautious of this please. Duromine does work differently on everybody. For me, I feel hungry after the meals digested about 2 hours later but I don’t eat as much anymore. Its not a crazy binge hunger but it’s more like the body needs energy and food, so I eat small portions and drink my 2L of water a day. Im not somebody who keeps drinking water so I have one of… Read more »

Hi Angela and Gamze. Thank you for your tips. I started having a salad and a piece of boiled or grilled fish/chicken breast as my last meal, and I feel no hunger till I go to sleep. That’s so cool! I would usually eat like a crazy hungry lion in the evening. The best thing is that I am not longing for sweets anymore. Started exercising. Have increased energy, so now off with the laziness. I started working out every morning and have a 45-minute walk / bike riding in the evening. Don’t have scales at home, but I am… Read more »

Hi guys. I’m Mo from South Africa. The last time I weighed in I was 63kg and I am 1.53m tall. I have been taking duromine for three days now and I am starving! I eat a small bowl of all bran cereal every morning with a fruit and some coffee and the rest of the day I eat but very minimally. When will the hunger pangs stop? I really need to lose weight. I’m so fat. I’m feeling very discouraged like it’s not working. Help me sad

Hi! Hoping to get some clarifications I am new to Duromine – this is my 2nd day taking the pills, currently taking the 30mg. I still feel hungry after taking Duromine and because of this, I still have 3 meals a day, but i realised i am eating lesser. However, this cause me to get hungrier faster as well. Is this normal? I have read some reviews and people commented that while on Duromine, they don’t feel hungry at all – does this mean Duromine is not working for me? Am I supposed to not feel hungry at all? I… Read more »
