    Hello Nessa22!

    Yes, I guess we all (at least most of us) had sleep problems during the therapy. That's why they suggest to take the pills in the morning, or at least no later than 4:00pm.
    The only thing that helped me was reading. Reading in bed always makes me sleepy. I know it's individual, but still try.

    You have a great day and much kgs to lose!

    The earlier you take your tab the better. I take mine at 6am when i get up. Try to not have any coffee etc after 2pm either, might help :) good luck! Im on day 4 so a newbee too

    Hey guys,

    I'm on day 2 (well hittin day 3 with this insomnia) on 40mg and i have taken D at 5:30am for the last two days. I cannot sleep. I feel like my eyes hurt and head feels buzzy but all i want to do is jump up and down. Hope tomorrow im not tired during the day. I know the insomnia eventually goes down after a week or so and I know my high dosage to start off may be spurring this on. Everyone says take it early yet taking it at 5:30am doesnt seem to do the trick for me. Going to take it about 4:30am/5am today to see if it makes a difference. Been eating really well lately and been full of energy running up and down stairs and consistently walking and standing up for long hours so hope i lose some weight. Fingers crossed! Weigh in is next tuesday!

    Hi JoanneN, has your sleep gotten any better? My stats are very similar to yours. I'm 155cm and weigh 78 kg. I tried Duromine a couple of months ago and could not sleep on them at all. I was lucky to manage 1hr sleep per night and gave up after 5 days on them as I was exhausted. I was taking my tablet at 4:30 - 5am. I'd really love to try Duromine again. Hopefully your sleep issues have settled down? I'd love to hear any tips or how long your insomnia lasted.

    Thanks :)

    Day 1 almost over for me and I even managed a tiny nanny nap which isn't normal for me. Took my metermine at 7 am and by 8.30 I was mildly buzzing. Have managed to have a bite to eat every three hours but do find I'm not particularly hungry.
    I hope I do manage to sleep tonight as I'm back at work tomorrow. Probably still too early to tell of any side effects at this point for me.
    May you sleep well and pleasant dreams :)

    Wow guys! I'm sleeping like a baby, feel pretty normal. Both the dr and the pharmacist said I might have trouble sleeping but I really feel normal and I'm on the 40mg. Have been for about a month now. Lost 6kgs.

    Maybe the lack of symptoms is down to the superfood program I'm doing in connection with the D's... Hmmmm

    To be completely honest with you DownLow, I am going into this completely blind. Ultimately I aim to be focusing on portion control, cutting out crappy carbs, upping protein & water and re organizing my time to incorporate regular exercise. I've started by having small serves every few hours equating to 3 main plus 3 snack size. I have a lot to lose (30+) kg. Where can I find more info regarding the cleanse you're on? :)

    Thanks, I'm sure people will think I'm stalking them. I'm just clicking around like crazy and only just worked out how to follow someone. I still am unsure of most of the site but I have picked 3 random people that are new and similar age just to have someone to chat to and find out how it's all going :)

    I'm hoping to have a positive experience which will empower me to keep moving in the right direction. So wish I could fast forward a week or two. Feel free to quiz and or share anytime. I'm looking at ridding 37 kilos which hopefully will go quicker than it took to gain it. But I will be happy with 25 kg. The last few attempts at other diets i could not get below 90. I'm currently 107 kg.
    Do you have a specific number to lose?

    Hi kazzbah
    I suffered sleepless nights my first 2 nights on D
    I too am on 40 mg, but now I sleep fine, I hope it all settles for you soon, I take my D At about 4.15am each morning, so early because I hit gym at 5 , gives me a great kick start for a workout, and then off to work at 7.30/8 , I don't normally feel like breakfast but I make myself have something as it is important after working out, my breakfast is about 12 raw cashews and a boiled egg, glass of water, that has me going no probs till about 9.30/10 , then I treat myself to a decaf coffee , I won't ramble on, but I eat really small every 3 hrs am totally buggered by 8.30 , so it's lights out
    Good luck :)

    Hi Kyles, thanks for sharing. Last night sleep was not the deepest but I felt fairly good when I woke up this morning. I am so thankful for "D" today. By now I would have eaten myself into a food coma or had a big spaz because i have not had a cigarette since around 8 PM! ! Its so nice to meet people who are in a similar situation and get some reassurance as its not nice to feel were alone on this journey. proud of you for your efforts and dedication. Have you always been so motivated? Like some others I have met here in recent days, Duramine must remain a secret for all very valid and individual reasons. At least we can share and coach each other and dare to dream without judgement:) Would love to chat more but must get ready for work. Onwards and upwards xx

    Hey @Bec32 My sleep is so much better! Almost 2 weeks in and i can crash like a baby. Realistically, i have no more side effects besides the dehydration. One week is the duration of the side effects but obviously it differs between every person. If you find yourself not sleeping try taking the duromine earlier in the morning; say 5am or 5:30. I have done that and it helped. Now i take it at 6am to just keep a balance. I like to generally take it 5:30/6 so by 7am i am up and ready filled with energy. Hold in everyone, it gets better if you have bad side effects.
