Great kick starter!
Hi all, i have had experience with Duromine over the years & have had success with it. The only problem is, once you stop & in my case, i pilled the weight back on!
I found that 15 mg & 30 mg don't really stop any cravings & a waste of time.
I found that 40 mg are the way to go & apart from dry mouth & initial sleeplessness in the first week, they work wonders.
This time round i started my weight loss regime at 128.5 kgs, but i did something different, i had 2 shakes from Aldi ( morning & Lunch) & a healthy salad with tuna & salad for dinner & ...

3days in on 15ml then 30ml
Started off with 15ml the first 3 days couldn't feel crap I do hardcore gym 6 days a week. I decided her take to 15mls tablets to see what 30mls is like. And still don't feel anything.
Still eating like crazy, I have normal sleep, what I've noticed some people's reviews that they get dry mouth I get dry mouth, I don't drink any more water that I use to. Meh I'll update soon when I see my doctor on Thursday 5th 2019.
So far it is proving very effective
I have only been on it for 3 days, and I have lost 1.1kg. I am like a hamster in a wheel. I have been exercising each day, because I can't sit still. However, I didn't sleep for the first 24 hours, second night I slept 5 hours (broken sleep). I have dry mouth, as a side effect, resulting in me drinking between 2-3 litres of water a day. I believe the water contributed to the weight loss.
My appetite has decreased significantly. I can not finish a whole meal because part way through I feel full and sick. My cravings for take away (mostly deep fried), have ceased.
I will regularly update this review.

Not Bad, 4.5 Stars for me! 15mg Dose for 1 month
I'm a 38 year old Male, my starting weight was 108 kg ( I didn't look 108kg ) .. I took 15mg 1 a day for 4 weeks and than took 30mg for 2 weeks every 2nd day to make it cheaper to use.. I stopped over eating and gave up all junk including soda just before I started. I lost 15kg in 5-6 weeks without trying. the only exercise I did was walk at night for 20 -25 minutes ( approx. 3km's ) . The side effects I got was anxiety after 3 days for 3-4 days, I Basically had this feeling of guilt & all my feelings of regret hit me hard for some reason.. ha...d a dry mouth, heart rate went up at times but nothing to serious, blood pressure wasn't to bad & it does kill your sex drive...( comes back after 2-5 days of not using it)..I stopped using these because I felt I could carry on without them ,plus I didn't like the side effects & the possibility of getting more health issues down the track.. i.e Cancer...I saved $600 a month by not over eating and buying junk food...I've been eating more fruit & veg, more water ( even weak cordial ) nuts and basically no meat, I find I can get full pretty easy, eating a hand full of nuts can feel like you've eaten a whole tray of lasagne...im aiming to lose 30 - 35 kg..I reckon some of the people who use this and say it doesn't work I guarantee there still eating junk and not moving more....If you really want to change you will..I feel more energy and my mental state has improved, not grumpy & moody..I give this product 4.5 stars..my sleep was good, I have moderate sleep apnea ( that's why im losing weight ) and it didn't effect it and I felt for refreshed in the mornings, didn't have trouble getting to sleep, I took these no later than 8:30 am....before I couldn't get up in the mornings, but when taking duromine I could get up between 4 - 6 am feeling good...I now go to the gym regally after losing 15 kg's now im more motivated, specially when people comment on how much weight you have lost.. any questions I'm happy to answer them..

Best thing I've done!!
I started taking Duromine in July, weighing 111kg. I took it first thing in the morning and the only noticeable side effect was a really dry mouth & a drastically reduced appetite. I've just finished the 12 weeks and I've lost almost 24kg. I didn't increase my exercise from twice a week. I found I couldn't get through most of my meals and my sugar craving was pretty much wiped out so those 2 things also helped immensely. I am just beyond excited with the results and how much better I look now.
Fantastic! If you can get past the sleep
I have been on duromine on/off a few months here and there. I have lost almost 20kg, another 5-10 to go. It's fantastic really helps me curb eating habits and the sugar cravings. Takes a day or so to kick in for me when I start again. First week the sleep patterns suck but it's another thing that eases up after the first week. I find I'm more focused and have more energy for the day to day household chores once I'm finished at work. Love it.
A great kick starter for weightloss!
I took 30mg of Duromine daily for 3 months earlier this year. I had been having difficulty shifting weight in the year or two prior to starting Duromine, due to having many health hassles.
I had difficulty sleeping for the first five nights on Duromine, but after this point, didnt have any sleep difficulties.
I took my daily Duromine tablet at 6am, to ensure that I didnt have difficulty sleeping at night.
I lost 10kg in total.
Works for me
On my first week, I have very little side effects but they include prolonged period that started early on the day I consumed Duromine, light headed and a little dizzy. I have been eating six small meals a day (eating around 1,400cals) and sleeping OK, 6-7hours per night. I was about 87kgs ( I am 173cm tall)when I started Duromine and on my 6th day I went to 83.4kgs. I have a fair bit of muscle since I was going to the gym with strength training about a year ago and lost 13kg (highest was 97kg) then I gained a few kgs when I stopped because I lo...st motivation for about 3months. I am using this as a kick starter and so far so good. I don’t expect to lose the same amount at this rate, but hopefully because I am still meeting my calories and working on my metabolism that I won’t gain it all straight back once I’ve stopped! The perfect thing about this drug for me is I don’t have any food cravings but doesn’t stop me from eating, therefore I have been making better food choices!
Very helpful in losing weight
I’m just about to end my second month on duromine and I’ve been very lucky as I haven’t noticed any nasty side affects and have lost 11kg.
But sadly cannot continue taking it as after going to gp, optometrist and today going to an ophthalmologist who said my eyes are as dry as an 80yo :( I couldn’t work out what was going on with my left eye and she has figured out it must be the duromine causing severe dry eyes.
I really would of liked to drop another 5kg but I’ll just have to try sticking to eating smaller portions and walking everyday.
Great product to run parallel with diet and exercise
Great for appetite suppression. Best recommended taking first thing in the morning to ensure you are not kept up at night and should be run with a healthy diet and exercise. Highly recommend

Not a magic pill, but oh so helpful
I lost 16kg taking varying doses of Duromine and have kept it all off! Appetite suppression was super helpful for me, as was losing 5kg in the first 2 weeks. I found losing the weight made it easier to get a great gym session done and running was easier - that was the biggest motivation. I did get slightly anxious on the 40mg dose, so dropped it back to 20mg per day and it was perfect, but I'm very tolerant to stimulants. Be warned though, you have to put in the work for it to be effective, it is not a magic pill solving all your issues. Train ...hard, eat good nutritious food when you feel hungry (not just because its "lunch time") and be patient! 4 months post Duromine and I've kept the weight off, and lost a little more on my own. February 95kg - end August 78.5kg yay! Watch your food when you stop taking it! A lot of rumours about gaining all the weight back after duromine but if you create good habits and be patient, you'll be fine.

I’ve been on Duromine 30mg for 7 days now and I have dropped 4.8kgs in that time frame.
I’ve only worked out twice out of the week but I am fairly active at work. Always on my feet for 7+ hours a day. I’m eating healthy keeping my calories under 1600 for the day. I’m even struggling a lot of days to hit 1000 calories.
My starting weight was 114.8kgs and I’m now 110kgs just after 7 days.
I don’t notice much change in my appearance but the people I work with and my friends have said my face and neck seem slimmer which is a good sign.
My goal ...
Second time on duramine
The first time taking this drug :
lost roughly 20kg in 2010. (age 22)
I would have a giant iced coffee (skim milk and sweetner) and then I literally wouldn't eat for days upon days. Having a cheeseburger every five days or so. So i went from 110kg down to 90ish in the space of about 2 months.
Time in between:
Lost a little more weight over the next few years on my own/dabbled with dexis and alcoholism and just really bad life stress and trauma, unfortunately . so anyway Went down to 83kg at my lowest. Weight fluctuated with a slow increase...
started taking 7 days ago, first night trouble sleeping, after that all good, has suppressed cravings, no longer crave sweet things, exercise 30 mins 5 days a week, yes it can be addictive, should only be on short time, and see a dietician to help change your eating habits, not go on a diet, change your lifestyle of eating, have lost 1.4kg first week, learning to eat better and fill up on the free veg on my dietician list, no hunger pains at all
October 3rd 2019 Update: This is perfect way to help
This is my second review now onto my second m...onth have lost 6.5kg in the 2 months, have not had the massive loses of some other people, but everyone is different, have been with a dietician to help me learn new and better eating habits, so when i stop taking Duromine i will be able to continue on my way to my ideal weight. this is a good starting point if you have trouble curbing those cravings, but it is not a easy fix, you need to put in the hard yards as well, if you are thinking of trying this, take first thing in morning as sleep is affected, losing weight slowly is the better option, but some people lose a lot in first week or 2, for me it is a slow process, but it is moving and i am learning to have better eating habits and will continue to keep going even after i stop. good luck to you all
Not too impressed
I’ve been on this for 2 weeks now , with no appetite suppression , headaches, heart racing and sleep suppression, fatigue , irritability , anxiety .
No weight loss and I’m exercising every 2nd day .
Will be talking to my doctor tomorrow

Serious side effects had to stop taking
The side effects I could handle were;
Trouble sleeping and anxiety.
The side effects that I couldn’t handle were hot flushes, red bumps / rash on my face, dry lips and scalp which caused serious dandruff. Heart palpatations and tightness in chest. Also the nausea became quite bad. 30mg and tried every second day but still all the same side effects. Stopped taking after two weeks. Lost 3kg first week and then only 1 second week when I had gone to every second day. Not worth it for me.

My journey so far..
I started taking 30mg on the 24.06.19, I am 33, height is 165cm and my weight was 76 kilos.
Today, the 3.08.19 (6 weeks later) I weigh 69 kilos. Goal is 65 kilos.
As it suppresses the appetite quite well, I have not had an issue with eating smaller amounts, between 900 to 1300 calories a day with minimal carbohydrate intake.
I workout 4-5 times a week, mainly cardio.
I recommend starting duramine on days when you’re not working as it does affect your sleep for the first few days and makes you quite hyper but that had settled down for me by day...
It helps you manage you caloric deficit requirements
I was 118kg, now im 95.3kg, my goal is 85kg.
I have used 3 courses of duromine 30mg since 8th of september 2018. They arent magic pills and you won't keep the weight off unless you put the effort in. I got my gp to put me on a free healthcare plan as I had type 2 diabetes.
The plan comes with 3 free visits to a dietician, there you will start to learn about food and nutrition. I also do weight training, started with 5x5 stronglifts then moved to full body and am currently on legs push pull split.
Every 10kgs you lose you'll have to work ou...t your caloric deficit requirements again (dietician can do this for you) as your body wont require as many calories being smaller which means you'll need to cut calories even more. I started on 1620 calories per day. I used the free myfitnesspal app to create a profile and scan EVERYTHING I was eating and drinking to track my calories. I also bought a fitbit alta hr which links to myfitnesspal app and puts calories back into your daily figure if you have been active and burning calories from exercise. I was also buying youfoodz meals for 3 months as it was super easy to track how many calories your consuming from scanning each meal. I still went out and had lunch or dinner with friends, but i wasnt drinking alcohol. 2 months ago I had my bloodwork done again, no more type 2 diabetes.

Questions & Answers
Been on Duromine for 3 days, sleep has not been effect much, eating around 800-1000 calories, had a little appetite suppression.. Have been active in walking and doing barre.. I would have thought I would have lost something. But not even 100grms. I am 162cm and 74.4kg.... Did anyone else have a slow start, or any suggestions on what I am doing wrong.
Lol I started with 15ml and for about 3-4days didn't feel crap.
Then I decided to take to tablets to make 30ml and about week and a half later my anxiety started playing up, my appetite suppressant has somewhat kicked in because my dad are Hungry Jack's and I wasn't hungry CRAZY! for me anyway haha. But I'm going to doctors tomorrow so I think I'll stick with the 30mls for now, now that I finally feel something happening . Don't look on the scales they will screw with your head. Give it 2months then check.
Hey Guys help please? I'm not a fan of taking tablets or capsules. Is it safe for me to take Duromine by opening it up and just consuming the contents?
