    Hi everyone :) So my name's Mel. im 24, 170cm tall. i started taking Duromine 30mg on Sunday 14th May. Starting weight was 105kg. in the first week i didn't feel hungry at all and i lost 5kg. But now im in my 2nd week and im back to being hungry all the time even though i eat a decent amount :( and im not losing any more weight. Finding it hard to stay positive at this point, so i thought i'd join the forum to get some more support.

    Now im currently at 99.5kg, and my first goal i want to reach is 90kg, then 80kg, and eventually 72-74kg ish.

    The main thing im worried about is the hunger pains :( Before i started Duromine i would have them ALL the time, even just after eating a BIG meal (and my portions used to be very big), so i was happy when i didnt feel that during the first week. But now they're back and i'm worried i'll start binging or eating too much again :(

    Hi Mel, I started a week ago too and weigh in tomorrow. Have you been drinking a lot of water? Keep up the good work, 5 kilos is a massive loss :)

    Hello Mel! Welcome and congrats on your first weight loss results! -5 kg in a week that is HUGE.

    Now let’s see.. are you sure you eat enough? Drink as mush as you were drinking during the first week? What about your physical activity? Anything? If you start drinking more and the hunger is still there, try to skip a day of Duromine and continue the next day as usual. It helps some people kick start Duromine effect. Good luck to you!

    Hi Mel! Did Duromine help you with your hunger pains? Are you following any certain eating schedule? Hopefully, the appetite suppressing effect came back and you keep losing weight. Looking forward to an update from you! Cheers!

    Hi April :)
    So an update.. i skipped a day like you suggested, but ended up skipping about 1-2 weeks (because i started sleeping again and it was amazing :p) and i started eating more again.. weight went back up to 102kg. I started Duromine again last week and have been going well, i havent checked the scales yet but will do that today :)

    Hi Mel. I just noticed your message in the choutbox and read your other post about feeling down on Duromine… did you start having such mood swings when you started Duromine, or they were always there and simply aggravated a bit once you began Duromine? IS this the reason you were on antidepressants?

    Let’s try to see what you eat and how you eat. I also had my ups and downs. What helped was the way I was cooking and serving my meals. I was trying to make it all look as if I am dining out in expensive restaurants. I was trying to teach myself to enjoy the taste, every bite, and not the amount of food I ate. It was hard. I learnt to cut small pieces, gather them on the spoon or fork, smell the food and try to remember the flavor, and only then I was placing it my mouth and chewing… try to chew food very very thoroughly. Give yourself some time for every piece of food. You will just Have to change the attitude. It’s all on psychological level.

    As for your incapability of staying away from binging for more than 1.5 weeks, let’s do the following. Promise yourself and keep the promise to eat all healthy meals for a week, not 1.5, just a week. And then let yourself have one cheatmeal. Then proceed for another week of healthy eating. DO NOT torture yourself, if it’s hard for now. I think you will be able to control yourself a bit better if you give yourself this possibility – to cheat. You will always know that you have that meal coming soon. Plan it. and enjoy with no remorse. I strongly advice you to try this system. I think it will help you.


    Keep strong! You can do it!

    Hello Mel, I am sorry you had to go back to antidepressants, but it doesn’t mean that you have to fall back. You were doing really well. Please, try to do everything right for the sake of yourself. You can do it even without Duromine. If you find it hard to concentrate on the routine just like that, find an hour and write down a program for a week and then cross out everything you do. Make it like a job that you have to do. You know what reward you will get for this job, and it is a lot more valuable than money. if you need any support, or just feel like letting out something you have inside, feel free to do it. I am here most of time. I really wish I could help you continue moving forward. If you feel that need some time, take a couple of day you need (or more) and start on the weight loss program exactly on the day you schedule, without giving a couple more days, then more… you need to become very focused. You can do it! (If you are still on the weight loss program, I apologize, if I wrote something wrong). My best wishes!

    Heeeey! This is the point where I totally keep my mouth shut and ask you kindly to visit your doctor and tell him that you are taking Zoloft. Antidepressants are something that is not worth messing with. Please, discuss the possibility of using Duromine with Zoloft before you start. It's been almost a month since you stopped using Duromine. How is your appetite? Weight?
    All the best, dear.

    Hello there, nice lady! How are you doing? Did the doctor approve Duromine with Zoloft? If not, I wish you all the willpower to continue with the weight loss program without Duromine and achieve success!

    Hello Mel! How are you doing? What did the doctor say? Did he allow you taking Duromine with Zoloft?
