Duromine is a weight loss medication that suppresses the appetite by directly affecting the part of the brain that controls hunger levels.
What to be aware of before taking Duromine:
- Contains the active ingredient phentermine, which is an amphetamine-like medication
- Duromine can be bought at a pharmacist and requires a prescription
- Intended to supplement healthy meals and exercise
- This medication may potentially cause side effects, so it’s important to discuss them with your doctor and be aware of them before you start a course.

Its Working for me….
When I started on Duromine 5 months ago, I weighed 180kg. Straight away it worked for me. No more cravings and lots of energy. I’ve lost roughly 10kg a month with a total loss so far of 55.4 kg. I’m feeling great but still have long way to go. I stick to basic meal plans as I’ve pretty much lost interest in food. Just have what I need to stay healthy. I recommend taking vitamins while on duromine. I had some of the minor side-effects but it’s been worth it.

7 day review
I actually visited my GP to ask about ozempic originally. Turns out you need to see a specialist about it. In the meantime while I wait for that appointment he suggested duromine 30 mg. I am mentioning this in case anyone else might want to look into another weight loss medication. Anyway, I was very reluctant as I had used this over 10 years ago but ended up abusing it back in my younger days. This is an amphetamine. It’s legal speed. So here I am and I really need to shift this weight as on my own nothing was budging. So I gave in and bought ...the generic version metermine which cost $89 from chemist warehouse. And doing it right this time round, I wanted to share my experience so far. I’m 165cm and my starting weight was 82.9 kg. 7 days later I am 77.5kg. I’ve lost 5.4 kg. So far for me this is working. I did a detox before starting duromine to help get rid of all the toxins in my liver which I felt might have been hindering my weight loss mission. And so therefore maybe the duromine is working for me because of the detoxing. I take mine upon waking. Start feeling full effects about 3-4 hours later. Long lasting energy. On the daily my mouth is dry, But not excessively. Heart rate goes up and have hot flushes at times. Definitely staying up til early morning. I was already suffering mild insomnia though just not this bad. Definitely a bit more short tempered but I am due for my period. Sometimes feel like a zombie but not totally brain dead. Day 1&2 had no interest in eating. From day 3 made a conscience effort to at least snack on something healthy around 5 or 8. I love not eating. And I had already started intermittent fasting before duromine. I do have a thermowhey protein shake an hour after waking and if I don’t have solid food later I’ll have shake in the evening also. To not eat is not sustainable though. All these side effects I can manage and will probably only do one more month. What I wanted was to get my weight moving again and it seems to be working. I’ll utilise this duromine and lose as much as possible and after this I’d truly prefer to continue my journey naturally. Also forgot to add have not done any form of exercise due to my cold that just won’t go away. However I do have 2 toddlers and a consistently messy house that keeps me busy through the day.. please I suggest to do seperate research on duromine and amphetamines. If you do do this obviously your doctor should know better than anyone else but I’ve seen women who really can’t handle the side effects. Being a Cranky zombie sucks. If that happens with you just do your best to overcome it. Hope this review helps you towards making an informed decision about taking duromine and good luck in achieving your weight loss goals

I started Duromine 3 weeks ago and the weight is just falling off. Im not going by how many kg's im losing but more about the clothes that I'm aiming to fit back into from 15 years ago. So far I have already dropped 2 dress sizes and feeling amazing and loving the compliments I get daily from work colleagues. My biggest issue was constantly craving sugar and eating junk and take away daily for the past 5 years and nothing helped fight the cravings until now. As for the side effects, I have been extremely lucky. Im sleeping the best I have in ye...ars, not getting the sweating or the extreme high energy feeling, I dont feel any side effects apart from the dry horrors making me smash out liters of water a day. Highly recommended this product for those needing help to shed some kgs.

It works, but very slowly for me
It doesn’t make me wide awake, I’m on 15mg. I take it in the morning. I do eat a little less but not majorly. It doesn’t do too much to my appetite or energy. I usually wake up tired and I take it, then at around 2-4pm I’m so tired I just want to nap. But then it will subside a little. I’ve been on it for 53 days now. I was prescribed 2mths. I began at 94.6kg. My weight now is 89.9kg. It does go up and down still like usual. But I’m happy to see it going down. I’m almost two months I have lost a total of 4.7kg. So far I can’t see the difference. Hopefully I can get another month, maybe on a higher dose. And continue to lose weight. It’s works a little like an anti-depressant for me. Less like a stimulant. I may have underlying ADHD.

I’ve changed my life I can’t believe it. 35kg down!!!!
Well where do I even begin, I spent hours on this site reading everyone’s reviews when I first started duromine almost 5 months ago. I was super over weight and so unhealthy I hated how I looked and was so depressed every time I ate McDonald’s which was pretty much every single day. I am 36 and I weight 91kg the heaviest I have ever been in my life .
So I did it I went to the doctor and started duromine 30mg , I have to say the first 2 weeks were absolute hell for me, I felt so unwell, I was sweating like never before felt so hot and had the d...riest mouth i had ever had, I never had an issue with the sleeping.... if anything I have slept so much better since taking taking this (very weird). My husband was amazing being an ex body builder had a full plan for me, every single bad thing in the house was thrown out there was nothing left that could tempt me. We had a super strict plan for me to make this work and boy did it work. My journey may be different from everyone else’s but I had a guru helping me and with out him I wouldn’t have been as successful as I have been, he kept me so honest and not once did I fall off the wagon , I became super result driven and after the first week I had lost 5kg and then I was away and I did all this with no exercise until the 4th week in , my husband was so right he new I would throw everything I had at it in the first week leaving me in a place where I would have to work so much harder later on. I stuck strictly to a shake diet and I mean every single day has been the same, a shake for breakfast , a shake for lunch and then 200g of chicken breast and a cup of broccoli and beans and I’ve had this every single day for just over 5 months . Once a month I would treat my self to a cheat meal - when I say this it really was never a cheat meal I had become super obsessed about maintaining a consistent loss every week, maybe a little to obsessed perhaps. As of this morning I weight 54kg the lightest I have been in almost 15 years , looking at photos of me 36kg heavier I can’t even believe I was that person.

I found these reviews really helpful, so here goes.
I have really struggled with my weight and motivation for a while now. I go through waves of being really into the gym and healthy eating, but I’m at my heaviest right now and needed to do something drastic. Enter Duromine.
A few of my friends have been on it, and said the side effects were terrible, but I really wanted to kick start my weight loss journey so I asked the doctor for it. I went to a bulk bill centre in Brisbane and said that I had been working out (true) and my weight loss h...ad plateaued (kind of true). He suggested Duromine. I bought the brand name stuff from Chemist Warehouse for $121. I’m halfway through, and while I haven’t weighed myself I can see a huge difference in my weight. I will weigh myself at the end and post an update. Side effects I experienced: - Constipation. Like really bad. I am very regular normally, but I went days without having to go and pretty bad pain from that. I have now taken a laxative to help.

13 days, my full review. 30mg
I lost 6 kilos in 13 days of using duromine. Full review.
Day 1: I took my first pill around 8am. Had a weightloss shake for breakfast and scrubbed the house in places i usually wouldn't. Did not eat at all that day as i wasnt hungry. Went to sleep around midnight and woke up at 5am due to partner leaving for work. I woke so easily its like my brain was ready for the day. My usual sleep pattern is 10pm - 9am. Effects- Dry mouth, Spiked energy and sweating.
Day2: Exact same energy as the day prior. Same time i took the pill and shake for break...fast. However this time i was abit hungry around evening so i had a salad. I struggled to eat the salad so i just ate it slowly. Sleeping pattern was exactly the same. Bed around midnight and woke up again at 5am due to partner leaving for work. Effects- Exactly as yesterday. Day3: This day i had work. I took my pill a little later as i slept in a little longer then the 2 days prior. I ensured i took me a snack of nuts to work and a fruit and yoghurt. I wasnt too energetic this day and i think it was due to lack of sleep the 2 days prior. But i noticed i was really talkative towards the customers. Roughly 1am sleep and woke around 8am. I had a shake for breakfast, ate all my lunch i took to work and a shake for dinner. Effects: Slightly fatigued, drys, sweating and unusually talkative. Day4: 10am start at work. Took the pill at 10am as it took me a while to get ready, longer than usual. I started to feel less energetic this day before i took the pill. Weetbix for breakfast and thats all i ate until around 3pm. I started to feel like i was actually starving, brought a wrap and when i took a bite, i couldnt eat it? Its like my stomach was rejecting it. And my brain would not let me eat fatty foods, so each time my belly rumbled i forced a bite out of that same wrap. It took me around 2 hours to eat half of that wrap. Then had a shake for dinner. I feel like the pill is what gave me the energy to complete the day. Effects- Slightly fatigued, starving but couldn't intake the food normally, drys, and sweaty.

3rd Day & FULL of energy
I have rated a 3 so far as too early to tell.
1st day I was wired as heck, full of energy, and actually loved it! So many errands were done that day, it was fantastic! I didnt feel hungry at all the whole day, I think I ate 6pieces of black forest choc for the whole day, my mouth was dry as heck & I was upto atleast 250am the next morning which Im usually knocked out by 10pm.
2nd day I was wired as heck again, ate a burger and that was me for the day. I did feel abit headachy the whole day but I put that down to lack of sleep the night befor...e & lack of water throughout the day. This time I was asleep by 1am but up at 530am the next morning which is today (day 3). Day 3 woke up at 530am and BAM out the door foor a walk with the dog haha! NEVER in my life have I decided to take the dog out at 530am, nor would you usually catch me awake at that time, Im not usually a morning person lol! So far....overall I havent had much to eat over the past 3 days but my bowel movements ....... have not really moved lol so Im hesitant to go check the scales. Am I constipated, I hope not because that defeats the purpose lol! Will send you all an update in 1xmonths time :)

I’ve lost 3.7 kilos in 4 days! I started on duromine Due to how much my arthritis effects my day to day life and how much I can do. I’m on 30mg and it has worked straight away, I hardly get hungry and I’m saving a lot of money on food. Only downfall is I get 3-4 hours of sleep every night but that should get better over time, I’m 20 and Weighed 97.7kg 4 days ago but now sitting at 9.4kg . I believe because I am a younger female the weight should drop pretty fast, it effects everyone differently but I am very pleased with the results so far.

Today is day one on Duromine 30mg. I'm about 120kgs. I took it at 7am (3hrs after my Thyroid meds).
No effects first up. Went and did a 9:15 Combat class. I haven't been able to jump or lift myself off the ground since the start of my last pregnancy which was over 1yr ago (bub is now 6mths) however during this class I was doing jump kicks and truly felt like I smashed the class. I then came home and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Every door. Every cupboard. Every ceiling fan. Every light switch. Everything. I was sweating my butt off & ...

It worked wonders for me!
I just finished my 3rd month and have lost 17kg so far! I can’t be more happy with the results. The first 3 months I was on the 30mg then went up to the 40mg for the 3rd month. For best results, I highly recommend eating healthy and exercising. I completely changed my eating habits while on the Duromine. Before I stared I was eating takeaway almost every day, eating very late at night and drinking alcohol everyday. I started eating healthier food in smaller portions, usually 3 meals a day with small snacks in between and nothing in between 7p...m and 8am. I cut out alcohol completely and was drinking around 3-5 litres of water a day. I was exercising every day, twice a day most days. The only side affect I experienced was the dry mouth which would usually go away if I drank lots of water. Overall I’m super happy with my experience and results.

They say there is no magic pill for weight loss. I think Duromine is pretty damn close.
Am not big on writing reviews but I am so happy with my results so far that I thought it would be nice to share a good honest review.

It works.. side effects are...
I am currently on my 3rd box. The first 2 months were 30mg, my doctor told me she could only subscribe maximum of 3 months continuously. After the 2 boxes, I went back for a review, however due to covid, it was 3 months later.
I was 118kg before taking the medication, after the 2nd month I was 108kg but because I stopped for a month, my weight bounced back to 110kg. I had no side effect at this point. Everything were normal, I don't crave for food anymore. I could go without lunch at work, even when eating dinner, I didn't feel hungry to eat b...ut eating because it was time to eat. After the second month, my appetite returned to normal. I was eating at the same portion before the medicine. My weight gained back quickly. The doctor subscribed again for 2 months, this time increased to 40mg. I am finishing the 1st box as I write this. My weight is now between 99-101kg in a yoyo state. I feel it is harder to go down recently. Last week, I had pizza and kfc in the same week, I haven't been eating them for 3 months, I was 99kg, immediately my weight shot up to 101kg. Side effects are I lost a lot of sleeps, I usually sleep from 10pm to 6am. After taking them, I couldn't sleep until 2-3am, I had to wake up at 6am in extremely tired state. I also feel that I sweat a lot, even after a cold shower, in a cold night, or even in an air conditional environment, I sweat like a pig.
