New here and trying Duromine

Postby biggurl28 » Tue Mar 10, 2009 2:32 pm

Hi Everyone.
Over the weekend i heard of a diet pill called Duromine and how good it is. so the very next day i decided to do some research on the internet and have read all good and bad things that this pill can do.
The bad things sound scary but the good that can come of it sound amazing. I went to my doctor this morning and told him i want to try it. He checked my blood pressure, weight, height and medical history before prescribing Duromine.
All is good, i had an ECG done 4 years ago and my blood pressure is normal.
I have a BMI of 37 which is absolutly crazy! I am ony 152cm and weigh 87kg. I have just turned 28 and have tried almost every diet you can think of but i have absolutly no will power and lack energy. I can go a week sticking to a healthy diet and exercise but novelty soon goes away, especially if i have worked so haed and lost no weight.
I have 3 children, aged 12, 8 and 7, all born by cescearian section, i have been over weight since the birth of my 1st son.
I also have had my gall bladder removed about 6 years ago.
So im giving Duromine a go and had my first capsule of 15mg this morning, i have been energetic all day and do not feel hungry al all, have had no side affects as yet but will try to post on here regulary to let those interested know how im doing.

i would love to hear from any one else who has had success with Duromine, not so keen of hearing the bad things as i have read enough.
here is a link about Duromine for those who dont know what im on about.

Well it is my 2nd day on Duromine and the only thing diffrent about me is that im just not hungry. well i think i am actually hungry because my stomach was growling by lunchtime after having a protein shake for breakfast at 8am, but i do not feel like eating. I made myself an egg sandwich and had an apple because i know i still have to eat but it is just so good not craving for foods, or wanting to stop at the shop to grab a pie. I can be around food and not want to eat it.
As for the energy side of it, I have not been bouncing off walls or anything as some people claim to, but i have been a bit more energetic, not so tired and dont have that "cant be botherd feeling."
I have had no side effects at all which is great. Although i was waking a bit through the night, but not to the point where i had to get out of bed. I could fall back asleep easy. I think it just the nerves and excitement about trying Duromine as i have never tried any other drugs to help me lose weight.
All in all, everything is fine so far. :lol:

hi, well i weighed myself this morning and i am now 85.6kg on my digital scales and before i started duromine i was 88 on mine but 87 on doctors, but i think i will just go by my own now. either way it is still a loss and i am feeling really good.
with exercise i make sure i do at least an hour of intense cardio and im always busy during the day too. the eating side i suppose is ok, its just hard to eat when you dont feel hungry! i have an optifast shake for breakfast and lunch, i also have a peice of fruit at lunch. for tea i have whatever the rest of the family is having but i dish mine up on a bread plate instead of a dinner plate and it fills me up just fine.
The biggest thing i have learnt so far is that i do not need to eat a massive plate full of food until im so full that i cant move. i know my stomach has shrunk because on friday night i had a pasta from hells pizza and was full half way through. usually i would eat the whole thing. its usually vegies and some kind of meat that i have for tea but sometimes i will just have a sandwich.
Going by my scales i have lost 2.4kg in 1 week so I will definatly keep going with this for another few weeks, i have had no side effects and can go to sleep easy at night now and sleep all night.

That's excellent Stacey! Good on ya! :D
That's annoying about the different scales hey, but any loss is a damn good thing :D
I know what you mean about not being able to finish meals. Usually I can scoff a 6inch subway roll down in no time. Now I can only ever eat 1/2 to 2/3 of it, my boyfriend is shocked as I usually finish my roll before him :oops:
Am finding it useful to retrain my brain and stomach into how much food I actually need to be full, as it sounds like you are too. I like the idea of using a bread plate, will do that for my dinners from now on but I am worried I am not eating enough most days so am going to look into having a shake for either morning or afternoon tea's on days I haven't had much.
Keep at it Stacey, thanks for your useful tips.
Have a good one,
Jane :D

hi.i am new here also and have been on duromine one day. i had previously decided several weeks ago that the time had come to take charge of my ever increasing weight-at 164cm i was 105kg. so i bought the optislim products and diligently followed a very very strict diet. however i got a huge attack of the PMS hormones and began eating more. in 3 weeks i managed to shed 5kgs. 2 more kilos dropped off somehow and i now weigh 98kg. i would love to share our stories of our duromine experience, esp. the positives. i am also excited to be trying this as i feel a good early result motivates me to keep trying. here's to our new futures! besrt of luck. :)

Make sure that your loss of appetitie does not lead you to eat too little. If your body thinks there is a famine, it will go into "starvation mode". This will cause a plateau - or slower weight loss.

If you are eating less, make sure the food you eat is full of nutrients. Fresh (preferably organic) foods are high in nutrients. Each meal should include healthy protein e.g. eggs, fish, lean meat, beans, lentils, chickpeas.

Make sure you take a daily Multi-vitamin and Multi-mineral supplement.

Take fish-oil and flax-oil (in liquid or capsules) each day. Besides the health benefits, they will help ensure that your skin does not become dry and wrinkled as you lose weight. :lol:

Drink plenty of water to help your body dispose of excess body fat. Also to prevent dehydration (and skin wrinkling).

Im new here as well, and have got the prescription in my hand for Duromine, just a little scared to take it. I'll start next week due to me still having the flu and taking other med's.

I like to know if theres many people in the obese range like myself, that have gone on this.. im 112kg and 160cm so im big and i need to lose weight!

I worry about mood swings, Blood presure, hallucinations and other side effects..how likely are u to get these? (my BP is normal at moment).

I'd like to hear more success stories.... i need to reassure im doing the right thing....

Hi, I have never taken Duromine myself, but I know a few people who have.

The most important thing is to have a thorough medical check before you start - and keep really close contact with your prescribing doctor - who should regularly check for any problems.

Make sure you know about possible side-effects, and report anything unusual to your doctor immediatly.

Do not take other drugs without discussing it with the doctor first (this includes legal or illegal drugs, alcohol, herbal medications, and over-the-counter products).

Do not assume that any medication is a "magic bullet". You still need to learn to eat sensibly and healthily.

Hi Im also new to duromine. Today is my fourth day on it. On day 2 the headache was terrible but since then I've been feeling great just drinking lots of water and with so much energy that i have every body around me asking what's going on as I cant stop doing things. I started at 98kilos and last night I have lost 3.5 but wont take this number as official till Friday when I will get a more reliable scales.

To get a prescription for Duromine you will need to talk to your GP or a bariatric (weight) specialist. They would probably advise seeing a dietician before giving a prescription for Duromine. Each person is different and there are risks involved in taking medications for weight-loss.

Do not be tempted to take medications which are obtained without proper medical assessment and on-going check-ups by a GP or specialist.

Duromine (and similar drugs) can be quite dangerous and most doctors would not prescribe them without proper investigations - and only if obesity was to a level where the risks were greater if weight is not lost.

Hey , go to Dr Sam Chazan in Armadale. He has no website/details on internet except to say he works in weight loss, but he will give you Duromine, plus he will want to give you an injection weekly which is what makes the weight loss happens according to him, but I'm convinced this is a placebo. I got the 30 day Duromine prescription and never went back for another injection and it worked fine! But I'd only look at taking it until your wedding, then try to adopt something else.
