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

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.

Does its job
I have tried the 10mg dose for about 2 weeks now. First couple of days I got really sick, not sure it was due to the pill but It did really suppress my appetite I felt I could go all day with just a coffee and some fruit. You need to have it as soon as you wake up and drink plenty of water during the day. I work out 3-4 days a week as well, so far have lost 2kg.

Working for me so far with minor issues only
I am Female, 52, with around 40kg to lose. I have used Duromine before, it was around 3.5 years ago and I had good results then so was keen to have another go as I hadn't maintained good diet habits after I stopped taking it. I had started to consume larger meal portions and to also eat unhealthy snacks in between meals. I have also never been a breakfast consumer. Other than weigh loss, my main purpose is to alter my eating habits into a healthier sustainable pattern.
As before, I have no trouble sleeping, not even after day 1. I usually ...

The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
I have been on Duromine 15mg for 2 wks and I have lost 5.8kg (12.7lbs). Its a great boost to starting a health diet as it completely suppress ones appetite. So far am very happy with my results!
Am using Duromine to support my intermediate fasting 18:8 and once a week OMAD. So far it's working great with only minimal exercise 3 times per week and only experienced lack of sleep in the first week.
My goal is to lose 15kg (33lbs) by August. So will update my monthly progress....

It’s good for weight loss but it has side effects
I was on 30mg for several weeks. It was hard to find a doctor who would prescribe it.
The following is from my personal experience:
Fairly fast weight loss with minimal effort.
Massive increase in energy. I was always buzzing.
Increased anxiety, Insomnia for the first few days no matter what time I took the dose (I would finally fall asleep well after midnight and then be awake within 2-3 hours feeling ready to get up for the day) Intermittent memory fuzziness, Mood swings (Moments of unusual agitation where as I’m usually ...
