Not Sure if I Could Get Duromine??

Hi :) I'm wanting to try and get a prescription from the Doctor for duromine but I'm not sure if I would be a candidate for it. I have used it before to "kickstart" my weight loss and I lost 10 kg. I then went off of Duromine and lost a further 18kgs. I'm now sitting at 94.7kg and I exercise every day for at least half an hour, eat a healthy clean diet and only drink water (and a good amount of it). But my weight still will not budge and hasn't moved for about 8 months. I'm wanting to just get Duromine again to kick start everything and get this weight off. My BMI is 35. Just wondering if anyone else has been in this weight range/BMI range and managed to get a prescription? I think it will be difficult to get at my local doctors as they have a very natural approach to weight loss, which I've tried their ideas but hasn't worked. Thanks!

My BMI was 38 and still my GP would not give it to me. Some are just so stubborn!!!!:mad:
I started having high blood pressure and cholestrol due to my weight and he was happy to give me pills for that but not to lose weight and be healthy. It really does not make sense:oops:
Just try to convince him you know it is just something to help you get on your way and not a long term solution.
I hope you have better luck than I had;)

Oh that's no good Tania, doesn't make sense really why they wouldn't.

I have my appointment at 9.30 so fingers crossed :) but if I don't get it I'm going to try gp2u.com.au - they do a skype consultation with doctors who can prescribe duromine to you and either send you the script or send you the duromine through terry white chemist- so that might be worth a try for yourself :)

And hopefully my doc thinks like yours in Sydney :)

Thanks Tania

Unfortunately my usual doctor would not prescribe it and told me I had to work harder, doing at least 2 hours a day of exercise, and see if that moves the weight then if that doesn't work then she'll prescribe it.

2 hours is quite hard but I've been doing it

I am so sorry to hear that!:oops:
If you can do 2 hours exercise a day I think you can achieve anything! Just keep at it. And maybe ask the ladies on here if they know of a Dr in your region who will prescribe.

Me too :) My doctor was actually away for family reasons for about a month so they gave me a new appointment with a visiting doctor - and it was soooo easy to get the prescription through her :)

I've started this morning and so far feeling great :)

How long have you been on it for?

Im struggling to eat much, im eating 3 mtimes a day but for dinner last nught I had to force myself to eat one small zucchini and bacon muffin. Jope im eating enough.

Well I'm starting Day 3 today :) I weighed myself this morning and have gone down by 1.2kgs :)

I find weighing myself each day helps to motivate me :)

I'm not having any side effects but I am only sleeping for about 4 hours a night (usually I have 6 hours so not that much different). I don't feel tired though so that's ok :)

zucchini and bacon muffin sounds yummy :) I've been setting my alarm to remind me to eat :)

And Tania the energy boost is great :) helps with the motivation
