Lack of sleep is common for Duromine users. Here are some tips from me:

1. Make sure you take the pill at the same time daily. If you start taking at 6.00 a.m. then do this every day. This will teach your body to spread the energy evenly throughout a day.

2. Your daily activity should be higher than ever, because when you are tired (physically) you sleep better. That's a fact.

3. Drink more water. Lots of users say it really helps.

4. Take 4-6 meals per day. I'm not joking. When you lose weight, your body still needs to get all the nutrients for living. Just make small main meals and a couple of snacks in between.

5. Spend less time in your bedroom (I don't know if you do or not, just a tip). The point is that your bedroom should be used only for sleeping, never work or spend time in it.

6. Before you go to bed in the evening, air the room.

7. Before sleep, take a glass of warm milk or a sedative tincture (herbal based - for example Passiflora), helped me. Just a couple of teaspoons.

8. Read a book instead of TV or computer at least an hour before you are going to bed. It has been proven that TV and computer makes your body agitated, therefore you cannot fall asleep for some time.

9. Make sure your last meal was at least 2 hours before sleep.

10. Take a walk in the evening. Not too late though, we don't need troubles, do we?

Besides, if you can't exercise for any reason, a 30-40 minute walk helps to lose those extra calories and burn fat. This will help you lose weight faster. Proven))

I hope at least one of these tips will help someone of you guys!
Stay healthy and be honest with yourself! ;)

Anytime guys! :)
Unfortunately our life has become so busy that we sometimes are too tired and have no time to think over simple things and solutions. Husbands & kids are important, but please find time for yourselves, as you deserve it!!!

Hi Kate, thanks for all ur tips, I'm just about to start day 2, I had a terrible sleep, only about an hour or 2 at the most, do u know if it's ok to take restavit which is an over the counter tablet. I have used them before and have found it perfect for helping ur brain switch off and relax ur muscles so u get a great sleep. My first day started with duromine at 6.40am 7am 30 mins high rate cardio (Fitbit watch has me in peak range for 20 of the 30 mins) then after dinner (salad with meat) another 30 mins of high rate cardio. I would have thought all the exercise I had done would have made me more sleepy. Is the sleeplessness just a thing that happens at the start or will it continue the whole time I'm taking them? And should I possibly take it earlier in the day ?

Hi, Kim.
Usually the sleeplessness doesn't last long. But it depends. Yes, if you take Duromine as early as possible, it may help to improve your sleep. One pill early in the morning before breakfast (6, 7, 8 etc. a.m.). As for restavit, I am not quite sure because I did not use it myself...but if it's just sleeping pill and over-the-counter, then I guess you may take it safely.

Thanks Kate, I have only 9 hours sleep in 3 days so hopefully tonight will increase a little more. I called my doctor re restavit and he suggested 1/4 of a tablet to see if it helps, might try one more night tonight without it but if it's still a small amount I might take 1/4 tomorrow night. But on the plus side I lost 2kgs in 2 days yayyyy

Great tips! I have always suffered from insomnia in everyday life, so now that I'm taking Duromine I'm getting almost no sleep at all ( only 1 hour last night) Luckily I'm used to lack of sleep but I can imagine how shocking this is to people who normally get a good nights rest.
Regardless I'm confident that this side effect will pass in time, lack of sleep doesn't kill you ( although we can all agree it feels like it can) and if I have to choose between losing weight or sleep, I'm going to choose the weight loss right now. Sweet dreams everyone x

I had some trouble sleeping as well and i think part of the reason was my late meal. I just don't sleep that well while my body is processing food.

For anyone having trouble sleeping I would recommend a bath with epsom salts (magnesium) after dinner. If you have some sleepy time aromatherapy, pop a few drops in the bath and that will work wonders too :)

The ‘cool down effect’ that occurs after you exit a hot shower or bath is very powerfully effective for me. It is a narrow window of time where, as your body cools, it naturally gets very sleepy. No downers required.

Just don’t wait too long or you’ll miss that sweet spot. Or engage in conversation with people as that might rev your brain up. ^_^

When I started Duromine, I needed a little more help than usual. White noise such as rain or waves does nothing for me but ASMR (check it out on YouTube) was a godsend. Everyone is a little different, but that knocks me out cold in under ten minutes every time.
