Do you take it after eating breakfast or before ? I took it at 5:30am on an empty stomach ,I think that's the reason why I felt nauseous .

oh sorry, it never notified you wrote something.
I take it in the morning on an empty stomach yea. I am not getting all the side affects I experienced the first time I took it thankfully (just can't sleep, dry mouth and noticed I am extremely moody). I get about 3 hr sleep a day so far.
I definitely had to double my intake to 30mg tho, 1x15mg does not work.

The first time I took it (7 years ago), I had really bad anxiety and my heart was racing which was what made me stop.

I didn't think about food or feel hungry at all, felt full all the time, so couldn't even stomach anything! I was astonished how effective it was, I still feel hungry this time round which is good coz I should eat something.. but feel full and stop. I often over ate and felt like my stomach was gna burst, it was always uncomfortable for me after every meal (bloatedness).

Hey guys, a few questions. I have just started Duromine 30mg yesterday, today is my second day, i wanted to know if anybody else has taken Duromine and not felt any of the side effects? i was mentally preparing myself to be absolutely off the walls busy busy busy or to have the bad after taste, or dry mouth? but none of that has happened, so i had questioned whether or not it is actually working? the only one thing i can say that has stopped me from doubting it is the fact that i am not nearly as hungry as i usually am, i consume under 1000 calories and sometimes forget to drink water or anything.

Exercise: Light to start with but a walk around the yard doing jogs or the exercise bike, Also a good amount of freestyle dancing with some of my crew. But i am thinking about walking today too, what is everyones exercise time frames?

Food: I have like 2 eggs (boiled or poached in water) on two slices of toast with a little margerine, salt and pepper with cup of tea. then that is about it till dinner which is just chicken cabbage and one potato. then another cup of tea. i drink 4 big glasses of water throughout the day and night. I just don't have the desire to eat much so i am assuming the pill must be working? but i haven't experienced any side effects so i am unsure if this is merely a placebo or if i need to give it time as it is a slow release pill.

Thank you kindly in advance.

I was pretty full of energy for about the first week felt like I had 5 cups of coffee. Everyone will have a different reaction but it is great you are feeling less hungry. That would mean it is working I have just started my 3rd month and I still eat so much less than before I started. I found i started getting dry mouth after about 2 weeks. If it gets to bad I find hydrolite from the chemist is great. You will need to try and eat during the day as you will get really tired by the arvo. I find almonds and dates help I normally just have a salad for lunch. For breakie I just have coffee and a smoothie. Good luck

Far out!! haha i need that boost of energy!! And yeah i am slowly realizing it affects others differently, i just forever see videos of people saying they had the dry mouth and bad taste, or the bouncing off the walls haha, not that i want to be super hyper or anything, i was just worried it wasn't doing anything for me i am also trying to refrain from the weight scale until the end of each week, and i may also start measuring myself as i have a feeling the scales may not change but your inches and cms etc will. Thank you so much for your reply and feed back Vanessa, it has given me more peace of mind. Very much appreciated!

Vanessa R.
Vanessa R.

For my first month I didn't have scales so didn't weigh myself till I had my 1 month check in with doc. Now I have scales I do a weigh in each Saturday morn. Hopefully you don't get the dry mouth it is annoying but if I drink enough I am ok. Like I said the hydrolite is my back up

I would speak to a doc or pharmacist but with my experience after a week my body got use to taking it. The first week I felt like I had 5 cups of coffee each morning.

Faith2407asked

I have been on 30mg now for 2 weeks, I have a coffee in the morning to take the tablet around 630am, then I have a bowl of high fibre cereal, home made vegtable soup for lunch and a fat blasters shake for dinner, my snacks through the day is a hand full of grapes, sesame seed snaps, apples or probiotics yoghurt. I drink 5 bottles of chilled tap water daily.
I'm 31 years old 5"1 and started at 174.0kg, in the first week I was constipated really bad and only lost 0.7kg, got some chocolate laxettes, and week 2 I'm at 170kg. I do a dance workout daily, arm excersize while sitting and house and yard work. The small amount I've lost is motivation to push on and try more excersize, but I'm really trying to get the energy to do more, being the weight I am basically every movement hurts. Can anyone relate or give their input? I'm happy for positive or negative comments. Thank you, Faith

You should try water aerobics. Fun, working out but not having the pressure on your joints. You’re eating really well and doing all the right things! You will get there :) 3.4kg is a lot in a week!

Hi, I’ve been on Duromine for the past two months, first month on 15mg and the second month 30mg but have had no weight loss. I’ve been drinking lots of water, eating healthy and have been doing cardio and light weight training but no results. Has anyone else experienced this? I am wondering whether I need a stronger dose as I still get hungry but fight through the hunger with water.

I was on duramine 15mg for 2 months - lost around 5 kg, then I went to 30mg for the last month and about to do another month with about 1 kg loss. I have tried to eat well etc, i drink LOTS of water, I do quite a bit of exercise but seems to be plateaued. Dr advised I see a nutritionist - might be worthwhile looking into?

I would go see your GP, if you stop and start the side effects often get worse, you might need a lower dosage or maybe it’s not right for your body, definitely speak to your GP.

I used duromine 5 years ago and lost 25kg. When I stopped I kept it off for 2 years but with a 2 year period of extreme stress I put it all back and more. I had no side effects except drymouth. Now I am trying it again and day 2 I have had a migrane and vomiting. Feel so horrible, wondering if I need to stop or if it will go away after a day or two. For the first time in my life my blood pressure is high, I am wondering if this is causing the migraine. Does anyone know what pain relief gets rid of these headaches that is safe to take with Duromine?

I already had high blood pressure when i started duromine, but i use to take Panadol, but I would go back to your doctor & have a chat about your side effects

Natcoop

Thanks for your reply. I will definately do that. Feel so unwell. My bp was slightly high before I started to.
Did you gets lots of headaches or just at the start?

Vanessa R.
Vanessa R.

I am in my 2nd month and find I get headaches but Panadol helps. I have had high BP for at least 10 years and am on medication to keep it low. When I went for my one month checkup it had dropped from 150/90 down to 135/80. I find I get the headaches when I haven't eaten enough. I have dates and almonds on me and when I have those during the day it helps. Definitely talk with your doctor. I hope you feel better soon.

To be honest, one drink feels like 10 when your on it . I am on 40's and its had an effect on wanting to drink apart from water.

Hamid J.asked

You do loss weight but the side effects as follows.
Because it dries out the body the effect takes place very quickly.
You will have poor eye sight in few months, grey hair , dry skin with sign of ageing, might effect liver and kidney if taking high dose in long term .
I was only 25 when I took it after my first pregnancy and I took 40mg first which was high for 1 month Skipping one day after every 4 days lost 10kils .
But in 3 years after that my eye sight went very poor And dry started wearing glasses and using liquid for eyes , large Pores and wrinkles otherwise I had baby nice skin. And worst I have to dye my hair for rest of my life because I lost all the pigments of my colour only grey hair left , also lost lots of hair due to dry folicS .
So yeah here you go .

Are you certain it was the Duromine that did that and not something unrelated?

Hamid J.
Hamid J.

Yes
Because the sort of dryness it gives and the sort thirst for water you feel it is confirmed that is drying your body.
And dryness in the body effects the aging process , hair follicles, eyes and liver .
So I am pretty sure where I got it from .

After day 3 you should be fine , take it with a good breakfast. After that you wont feel too bad and I do have a steam at night to help unwind. That works

I averaged 4 - 5hrs of broken sleep, so no it does not get better. I use to read a book to relax the mind but I still woke up. Thats why I would take duromine every 6 days & skip a day. You have to remember duromine is a upper medication so it will cause this problem. When you miss a day you will feel tired so you will get a better night sleep

Hi Karen,

Maybe it is best you talk to your doctor about sleeping pill.

It depends on many things, the first two weeks is usually faster and also depending on your diet too.

HI, it settles down, drink heaps of water, remember to have a good size breakfast. I do have coffee during the day but less frequent and find low carb protein bars help.

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.

thanks! I might do that too, I am not feeling anything on my first day (also taking 15mg). Still feel hungry, have food cravings..
whereas when I took it 7 years ago, it worked wayyyy too well, my body was overly sensitive (only ended up taking 3 tablets and stopped) lost 5kg in a month.
I tried it again several months later, but it never worked again.
Was hoping it will work once again now that it's been 7 years but my body seems to still have a tolerance to it.. weird..

Babe you can't just get them, you need to go to doctors and they test your BMI to see if you meet the requirements to be able to take them.

I'm borderline obese at 39.7 BMI.
