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.

No effect. Just feel tired. Doesn't work for me. $130 ripoff.
Currently in month 6 of a diet and exercise based body fat reduction. I'd stalled for a month and was frustrated. Got a script for 30mg Duromine. It literally does NOTHING and I have had no effect at all.
No appetite reduction, no mood enhancement, no sleep interference- if anything, I feel slow and more tired than usual.. I was hoping that this would help push past my Plateau, but all it's done is take $130 from my bank account.
Obviously, my neurochemistry doesn't work with this pharmaceutical. I'm not on any other medications.
I wonder if ...

On my way to my weight loss goal after years of being unhealthy and unhappy
Since i was 19 i have been overweight about 108 kilos. I put on the weight because i ate takeaway and did no activity. I put on about 28 kilos. The year after i started going to the gym 3 times a week, changed my eating habits, drank protein shakes and was taking fat burning tablets. I did this for 6 months and i only lost 3/4 kgs only to quickly gain it back which was shattering. I fell pregnant with my son and maintained the 108 kgs even with at least 2hrs of walking per day. I am now 22 turning 23 next month and i am at my worst. I put on an...other 7 kgs and reached 115 kgs. I was tired of being fat shamed and called horrible names about my weight. My weight was causing my depression and anxiety to come up a lot. I had enough and went to the doctor just over a week ago because as of now i have spent 4 yrs of my youth overweight and i was fed up. I have been on duramine for 1 week and i lost 4 kgs in that week. I have been taking it at 8:30 every morning then having plain green tea after because i have seen/heard that green tea speeds up your metabolism/burns fat plus many more benefits. Drinking water especially whenever i felt tempted to eat or eat more. I would have lunch which would be my biggest meal such as a schnitzel salad roll or a salad with chicken, carrot sticks with dip for a snack then my choice of meat with salad or a meal id usually make but a much smaller portion. Duramine has done more for me in 1 week than going to the gym plus the 4/5 other things i was doing on top of it in 6 months. It is early days but im so motivated and determined to continue. I am only on a 3 week perscription so i might post an update in another week then the last week. The main symptom i have had from duramine is dry mouth. I haven't experienced any mental health issues or felt high at all. I still feel tired and still can manage a nap in the day but i do have a little increase in energy which was a little bit of a let down. I haven't had insomnia, i usually don't go to sleep until late and wake up early before duramine.

It Worked Wonders For Me
I lost 17kgs in 2 weeks.. My meals were healthy but a decent size.. I only removed junk food and soft drinks from my diet.. Drank lots of water, walked (a fair distance, twice daily) and a couple of lounge-room exercises:
- pilates 3-5 times a week (dvd, pilates for dummies haha)
- some tae bo (also a dvd)
My work shifts changed weekly so walking and exercising at home suited my daily routine

I’ve been on and off this pill over 10 years, and have had it about 7 times, throughout that period, but I generally maintain my weight, until I get severe depression episode from a life event, like through covid lockdown and I turn to food.
I turned to food and have gained about 20 kilos over 9 months *_*
Stopping the gym and my daily/weekly routines completely threw me off - it’s been one of the worst mental challenges I ever faced.
I know, there’s always people worse off and I’m so happy and thankful to live in Australia, but it was very ...

Being a past meth addict, I know from experience this particular drug sends people insane, it's legal yet the one drug many friends avoided who were also addicts, it sends you absolutely loopy insane, it doesn't help with weight loss you put it all back on.. please avoid this drug just because it's legal does not make it ethical or rite

Happy with the results
Have been taking it for 1 month now 30mg, have lost 5 kilos. I’ve still got my full appetite and have 3 meals a day, portions are smaller . I don’t snack in between and sweet things taste awful. I experience insomnia ( nothing new to me )but I’m getting 5 hours straight sleep. My energy levels have increased greatly. I buy the generic brands as they have the same components in them but much cheaper $90 Chemist Warehouse $96 Terry White. I was given a tax receipt as I can claim it on my private health insurance.

Not what i expected
On the first day this had no side effects beside euphoria, on the 2nd day I had severe abdominal discomfort, on the 3rd I had severe gnawing hunger pangs and this if anything increased my appetite and thirst. I also felt weird mentally, I had a meltdown, I felt restricted and down. I went to the hospital and it's likely duromine caused it. I highly recommend you don't take this if you also take SSRI and antipsychotics like me. Please don't experience what i experienced. Different strokes for different folks (my sister had no issues and had no side effects)

Great in the beginning but side effects & aftermath are not great
I’ve been on and off Duromine for years and at one point, I lost about 30kgs in about 5 months. I was 106kgs and got down to 76kgs by December 2018. I alternate between using the 30mg and 40mg on different months. The side effects I experience are: no appetite at all, like would go 2-3 days without eating, increased thirst, shortness of breath - like I couldn’t take a deep breath in, blurred vision, insomnia, increased energy but also felt confused and ‘vacant’ a lot, and it also increased my anxiety. When I eventually stopped taking it, my app...etite came back with a vengeance and all I wanted to do was eat. I managed to keep the weight off for about 6 months but it started to creep back up. I now seem to yo-yo a lot with Duromine now as it has lost its effectiveness, so I’ll stop taking it for a month and then start again because my appetite would be out of control and I would gain 5-7kgs. Now I’ve just started back on 40mg after a months break and 6kgs of weight gain. Yes, I gained 6 kgs in a month... I have no self control. Anyhow, the Duromine seems to have its effectiveness back and this time I’m going to really train myself to have small healthy meals even when my appetite is not there so I don’t have a crazy appetite when I finish taking it. Also, when I have stopped taking it for a few months, I’ve had an intense fatigue that I can’t shake but I’m not sure if that’s related to stopping the Duromine. So my tips: - Plan your weight loss journey and maintain a proper diet whilst on Duromine
- Mild side effects
The motivation to get you going
I am a 31yr old female who has battled with my weight since my first pregnancy (2009). Uneducated I didn’t look after my body properly and went from 65kgs to 100kgs within 3 months as much as I would like to say it was the pregnancy I doubt that. My weight never dropped and I stayed between 100-110kgs. My second pregnancy (2011) I did better, but was diagnosed with PCOS after that. My weight fluctuated with intermittent “diets” but still remained the same. 6yrs (2018) later I fell pregnant with twins that took a toll on my body - I suffered wit...h depression throughout and became ‘comfortable’ with food as my outlet. May 2020 I reached 131kgs and got scared! I made changed stopped the coke which was all I drank and made better food choices nothing serious though and lost 2/3kgs. September I started 30mg and lost 5kgs with no exercise, I talked nicer to myself to change my mind set had a 2 week break and have now started 40mg accompanied with resistance training at home (battle rope, resistance band, 3kg dumbbells, aerobic stepper) I have created a 45min workout and aim for daily but will start ever second day and listen to my body. I am having the lady shake for breakfast. Lunch that usually looks like (brown rice, vege, chicken or can tuna) no dinner. The bigger goal is 80kgs Nov 2021.

Questions & Answers
Today is my first day taking duromine, my doctor prescribed me 30mg which I took at 8am with my breakfast. Its now 2pm and I don't feel any difference in my appetite or have any side effects. If anything I feel more tired. How long does it usually take to notice any appetite changes or side effects?
Has duromine changed formula at all? I was on it a few years ago and it worked amazingly, and quickly too. However.. The last two times I got my script filled, I have hardly noticed any difference (I’m talking only a few grams difference) despite eating super clean and low cal. :(
No it hasn't however I have heard the generic brand is less effective than the actual Duromine brand. I have also heard and read that your body can become numb to the effects after being on it for sometime.
I've been thinking of asking my doctor about going onto duromine. I have been a bit hesitant though as my resting heart rate sits between 90-100, which I'm guessing is because I am severely overweight. Has anyone been prescribed duromine with a high heart rate and if so, have you had any heart problems come up after taking it?
I've taken duromine on fast heart rate when I was proscribed about 2yrs ago. I'm just going back on it. Best is your breathing and how you breath can relax your heart. I have not had any issues after taking it. Best take it early in morning do some walking and after drink plenty of water the medication is to get you going so don't worry if you get your heart going but also don't push to hard. But your heart will be fine. And get weekly check up to see how your racing heart is going when weight is gone your heart should go back to normal as it's working to hard. GOODLUCK
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.
