Hey guys, newbie here from Australia!
I'm starting the 30 dose of duromine tomorrow an I'm very nervous. A lot have people have advised me to stay away from it, due to there bad side affects and experiences.
The #1 I'm most nervous about is the mood and temper! I'm a young mum of a 5 months old and it gets frustrating enough at times, I don't want to hurt him or anything. Just looking for some advice and positive experiences, negative even. I'm desperate to lose weight but not up to the risks.

Hi. welcome to the group. I started Duromine 5 or so weeks ago, i did have some mood changes in the 2nd week, but nothing too hectic. You wlll still be in full control of yourself, might just feel irritated quicker then normal. Dont stress about it, it doesnt last long and it will be worth it. Everyone has different experiences at different times on Duromine, i have read it makes some people really happy, so it just depends on how it effects you. I worried alot about all the side effects before i started and I have coped just fine. Duromine is my friend haha!

Good luck

I had all negative feedback too, I was scared to do it, I'm so glad I did, changed the game. :) I'm in control now. It's becoming a habit, eating well and excercising now :) it's not all easy of course, I you'll be right, 1 day at a time :)

I'm in week 4 of 30mgs. I haven't had extreme mood changes at all but I do still like to be conscious of it as you do hear of people becoming very irritable however you don't know their circumstances - are they eating/drinking? What is the home life like to begin with?

I had been very unmotivated to exercise in the first couple of weeks of taking duromine even though I was loosing weight. I've started playing squash as hobby and honestly can say that the exercise even though it not your usual gym routine etc has improved my mood alot. Much more positive head space now so my advice is to do something doesn't have to be gym or running but just do something, make it fun :) :)

I think that's normal for the first few days, it's hard to describe the feeling but you just feel different. I would monitor your heart though and if it doesn't subside by the first week might be worth checking with your doc, we don't want your heart working over time.

How are you going with your eating and drinking? Are you finding you don't want to eat or even look at food?

Will do!
I don't feel eating as often, but after 3-4 hours I can feel the hunger.
What about you?

That probably a habit your getting into so you have something to do. When I didn't eat at all a couple of years ago through grief I was smoking alot. I don't smoke anymore.

I have just started my second month today.

I lost just under 6 kgs in my first month.

Give it time. We didn't put this weight on overnight so we're not going to lose it over night.
