    Hello everyone,
    I started on Duromine 30mg 9 weeks ago, I
    I gained 40kg over the last 8 years when I settled down with my partner and stopped running around, going out drinking and dancing and started having quiet nights in with junk food and movies!
    Over the past 8 years I have tried so many things to lose the kilos I put on over the years but only managed to loose a couple of kilos here and there and then gain even more after.

    My last effort to lose weight consisted of joining Weight Watchers with my Mum for the extra support and to keep myself accountable and I joined a gym and attended numerous classes daily sometimes twice a day, I lost 5 kilos over 12 months, to say the least I was devastated with the effort I had put in and the results I achieved and became extremely disheartened trying to lose weight!

    I spoke to my GP about trying to lose weight and even had a heap of tests completed to ensure my thyroid was working correctly, she mentioned Duromine to me...

    Fast forward to December 11th 2015, my first day on duromine 30mg, I was hesitant about the side effects but figured if it doesn't work for me I will just stop taking it, I decided to make the most out of this opportunity as its not a cheap script to fill, I have been eating relatively healthy, salads, yoghurt, fruit, nuts and lots of water, my portions are a fraction of what I used to consume and I occasionally have a treat when I feel like it, my exercise consists of walking and 7 minute works outs and I will admit I'm not as disciplined as I would like to be but I have a sedentary office job that requires very long hours so I do what I can when I have the time and energy.

    My starting weight was 116.5kg, I am only 158cm tall so I'm wearing anywhere between Size 20 and 24, after my first week I weighed in at and lost 3.9kg, I was so excited, my weight has continued to go down, even over Christmas, New Years and My Birthday where I indulged a little, at my last weigh in on 12/2/16 I weighed 107.9kgs, a total loss of 8.6kgs over 9 weeks, I've dropped 2 sizes and bought my first pair of jeans in years in a size 16!!

    I had an appointment with my GP last week and she has increased my dosage to 40mg for the last month, 4 days into taking it and I'm feeling increased agitation and even less desire to eat, hope it settles a bit in the coming days as I don't enjoy feeling so strung out. All in all I'm very happy with my results to this point, it's the most weight I have lost in almost a decade and I feel I will be able to keep losing weight even after I stop taking the Duromine because it's enabled me to create some better habits!

    I would recommend Duromine to anyone who has struggled to lose weight using the general methods, however keep an eye on your mood swings and stress levels as I have found this to be the only real side effect for me!
    Thanks for reading my story, I wish you all the best on your weight loss journey also!!

    Well done alright! That's fantabulous! I hope to God I too can get back into a size 16 again :rolleyes: I had a very similar starting weight of 116.6kg. I tried Jenny craig and yeah you lose a few kilos and by a few I mean 6. Lots of money and exercising later.... Anyways, I'm hoping duromine will help us all out. Hope you're feeling better!

    How is duromine going for you? I'm now down to 103.9kg and am steadily losing a kilo a week still even after stopping taking the duromine! I was really concerned that when I stopped I would balloon back out but I've created enough good habits to continue losing!

    Great work! Yeah when i went from 30mgs to 40mgs i was a bit agro. I still get it everyday but now i know its just the pills i can easily talk myself out of that feeling.

    Although its a bit harder when you have your period AND duromine makes you agro haha my bf is on eggshells 4 days out of the month haha poor guy.

    But yeah same for me. That has been my only side effect and after reading some horrible experiences i feel pretty lucky
