    Default Duromine?

    So I started duromine on monday and so far only lost 2kg? Is this normal? I have been on a 1000 calorie diet and doing zumba twice a week... im a bit disappointed....

    Anyone have success stories to give me hope??

    First, I don't think you should be weighing yourself more than once a week.

    Losing weight quickly is unhealthy. Most people would love to lose 1kg a week. 2kg since Monday is a lot.

    I must sound like a psycho! I was expecting more from what I heard about this product...
    I only have about 7kgs to lose left from my baby weight and am hoping to shift most of it by early june as I don't want to be the fat bridesmaid at my brothers wedding!

    I did body trim for a week and lost 4kgs in that week and have kept that off! But im so picky with my food that it was impossible to continue with it!

    Oh and I've found since being on duromine that I have a very short fuse

    Duromine has some really nasty side effects it is basically legalized speed. http://www.nps.org.au/__data/assets/...2/iacdurom.pdf

    If you don't mind me asking, how did you get a prescription of you only have 7kg to lose?

    I guess because it is similar to amphetamines?

    I too wonder what doctor in their right mind gave it to you with such little weight to lose?

    Those side effects seem pretty common, a gf started taking it when we where on holidays and she was so nasty

    You'd be amazed at who can get it... *shifty eyes*
    Okay, I had about 10 to lose and got it... I know people who got it for the speed effects whilst being underweight...

    I've been on Duromine and surprise surprise kept it off - then fell pregnant lol! It's not something to take lightly... It is addictive and can cause issues. I was lucky in the fact that I had only a dry mouth, and if i took it late had sleep issues. But I wasn't taking them daily. I was taking the 40mg every 2 to 3 days.
