    I am currently on the compounded version.

    Back in 2017 i was also on the compounded version my period started early i started taking birth control pill which done nothing i ended up bleeding for 23 days my doctor had to move me to a stronger birth control pill.

    This time i started on the stronger pill in December and the compounded duromine in January and what do you know my period has started again and i am not due.

    Does anyone know why this is happening? I really don't want to bleed for 23 days again

    Hello Nikki82. I remember your story back then.

    I am not sure what you mean by compounded Duromine. Could you please clarify.

    By the way, the forum was lucky to benefit from the visit of a doctor, who left two articles for the Duromine users, one of which discusses the contraceptives use while on Duromine. It might help you understand something about your body behavior. Yes, it covers the issue of insufficient weight loss, but still discusses some internal processes.
    As to your question, I'll do another research. Back then, I did not find anything, which would explain what was going on. Hopefully, some new data is available today.

    Compounded version is exactly the same as duromine its just lactose free and a compounding chemist made it. Instead of my script saying duromine 40 mg it said phentermine lactose free compounded 45 mg quantity 100. It cos $141

    I am not sure about the last time, but, well, Duromine can alter your periods, and I am sure that not a single doctor can tell for sure whether it is from Duromine alone or with the pill together, or it's just the weight loss alters your periods every time... I am sorry.
    How do you feel?

    I stopped duromine yesterday to see if that would help but as of right now i still have my period it's been 5 days so far (a normal period is only 4 days for me) so if i am still bleeding on Monday i will make an appointment with my doctor.

    At the moment i feel a bit sick and very tired and have the worst period cramps.

    I don't think it's just the weight loss that's altering my period as 6 years ago i lost 20 kgs on optislim shakes and didnt have any problems.

    I hope your doctor helps you figure out what to do and I hope you'll get better soon!

    I see.. Fingers crossed all the bad things stop soon.
    Did he say that you should not take Duromine or wait until the bleeding stops?

    Thought so... i am sorry. I hope that you will continue your weight loss journey, even if without Duromine.
