    Hello! I'm new, took my first tablet this morning! Really hoping this works, I'm hoping the energy levels increase because I feel like a zombie most days!

    Hi!
    What dose are you on? My starting weight was 82.5kgs and I'm 160cm tall so my goal is 60kgs :) My Dr started me on the 15mg dose and so far so good! I've been taking this since the 7th Aug so just under a month and I've lost 4.8kgs as of this morning :)

    Hi NoodleBlue,

    I'm on the 30mg, I weighted in at 82.7kgs but it wasn't first thing this morning so must remember tomorrow!

    Well done on your weight loss! I think the first 5kgs are the hardest, and the most motivating to lose!

    Do you exercise? I read we're not suppose to drink alcohol are we?

    Hello LucyBella! Welcome to the forum! I wish you a successful weight loss journey.

    WIth Duromine, the most important thing is to change your eating behaviour, provide your body with a sufficient hydration and include physical activity in your routine.
    Alcohol is NO when on Duromine.

    If you have a prty, though, you can skip Duromine in the party morning and the next morning, as well.
    Cheers!

    I've just started the 30mg today - and I'm feeling it!! Feeling a bit spacey at the moment but not hungry so that's a win!

    I do exercise- I go to the gym 4 times a week for an hour each time, I usually use the elliptical machine, doing one of the pre-programed workouts the machine has - I work hard!! I also track my calorie intake each day and try to eat no more than 1200 - I found when I ate less than 1000 for the day I didn't lose any weight as I believe my body went into starvation mode...

    I have been naughty and had one night where I had a few low carb ciders but that was before I knew drinking and duro were a no no...
