    Nothing is covered. 1 month supply is about $110.
    Def consider other options, it has shocking side effects, nausea, dizziness, trembling, terrible anxiety, insomnia. You'll pile the weight back in when you stop to. Try a natural alternative.

    It's between $94-$140 depending on the strength and the chemist. When I was on it I was getting $54 back from my PHI each month.

    well after seeing my doctor today and telling him about my family history ( I just found bio mum) he wants me to lose weight and give up smoking asap.. He gave me a script for duromine and I got it filled ( almost had a heart attack at price but its my health how can you put a price on that).. He wants me to take it in conjunction with giving up smoking so I don't put on a stack of weight.. Wants to see me in 2 weeks.. Will update then.. Wish me luck!!!!

    Good luck! You need to make some healthy changes along with taking the Duromine. It sounds like you're serious about it, you can do this!

    Ok so day 2 and can someone tell me how to eat. Hubby makes me eat dinner. As much as I can and work makes me eat lunch. I just don't want to eat but I know I have to.

    Sleeping last night was restless but I have a lot going on so will decide if it's the pills or mind set after the weekend.

    Everything else I feel fine. Not going to weight myself till I see the doctor on the 11 th.

    Is there a BMI or weight criteria you need? I always thought it was only prescribed for people that were morbidly obese but looking at this thread and a few people I know IRL drs seem to give it if you are just a bit overweight.

    Based on that I'm a little jealous lol and wondering if I could get some

    I have a bmi of over 40 so yes extremely obese. My doctor doesn't prescribe it to just anyone. I have tried a lot of things before trying this. It's not a quick fix by Any means however I have to force myself to eat and I have a lot more energy during the day. Have a chat to your gp and see what they say. If you don't have a lot to lose then they might get you to try something else first

    Hi everyone, I have started duromine from 3 days. Everything is just fine I mean no sleeping issues no nausea nothing. I feel good energy. But I am not loosing any weight. I workout daily. From 10 days I am on no sugar no dairy and very low carb diet. I am vegetarian so mainly I eat salad. It makes me sad that I can't loose any weight. I have PCOS.
    Please help me, where I am wrong in diet or exercise? And please give me advice what should I eat?
