    I’ve just finished my first month on 15mg tablets and have lost 4.1kg , another 8kg to go to hit target weight and several cm off hips, weight and breasts.

    I’m wondering whether it’s safe to start another months course (doctor is happy to prescribe) as I don’t want to become too dependent on this tablet.

    Typically how Long has everyone been on this tablets, any issues weaning off it later ?

    Well, the actual manufacturer's recommendation is 3 months per course, no longer. They have already proven that this medication is not addictive. But you need to focus on making current changes in your lifestyle permanent, so that you don't gain all the weight back.

    Hi there. I am on my third day of Duromine 15 mg and I haven't slept well at all the past two nights. Moreover I am experiencing heart race in the evening, despite I take the tablet at 8 in the morning. Will these side effects disappear while going on with the treatment?
    Thanks

    Why don't you try taking it every other day for the first week? OR you can try taking it somewhere at 5 in in the morning and then get back to sleep

    Thanks for replying. I will definitely take it every other day, but I would like to know if these two side effects (poor sleeping and heart race) will go better after a while.

    They certainly should go away. In fact, these are quite common for the early stage of treatment and usually disappear on day 4-5, but may sometimes last for a week.

    I am on 15 mg tablet and just took it for 3 days because today I took a break.
    I feel more energetic and concentrated in my job and studyies and I can stick easier on the diet, although I still feel hungry, especially in the evening. I can hold more during the day. Unfortunately nowadays I cannot do gym because I am very busy in studying for an exam. But I hope the tablet will still work a bit and I am hopeful it will give me the boost to study.

    I have this heart race especially in the evening and when I go to sleep. And then I keep on turning side to side all night long. Did the sleep get back to normal after 7 days? Thanks

    I see you're very busy now... may be consider watching this workout. Just 4 minutes. BUT, since you have increased heart rate, monitor closely how you feel.

    I finally had a good sleep last night because I didn't take the dose yesterday. Let's see how it is going by taking it every other day. Thanks

    Hi there. I had exactly same symptoms and was on 15mg tabs aswell. My insomnia and racing heart disappeared after about a week in. Since then no side effects whatsoever, appetite generally suppressed although still eating 3 small meals per day. Also following a <70gms Low carb diet which has also done wonders for my bad cholesterol which was at 3.94 last month and is now down to 3.2 .

    I lost 4.1 kg in first moment and over 9 cm off waist and hips and about 6cm off breast. Well happy.

    Hi - I tend to have the same thing Everyday, 40gms of Kellogg’s almond granola with a splash of milk. 26gms of carbs which is a fair bit when on Low carb diet aswell. I’ve not touched pasta, bread , potatoes or rice for a month now !!! I then do 1 hour at the gym (in the home luckily) in treadmile, cross trainer and weights.

    How you getting along ?

    Thanks for sharing! I am happy to lose another kilogram. However, it goes a bit slower than i planned. Decided to make mondays my weigh in days to keep focused on my behavior during weekds :pensive:
    Definitely have to stop the bad habit of rewarding myself with tasty things. This is NOT a serious approach.
