    Hi I'm Sarah. First time duromine user, I started yesterday, no side effects so far.
    I'm very enthusiastic, I gym 4 times a week.
    I am currently doing a 1490/1500 calorie diet, crossing fingers for success.

    I'm actually going ok! I've lost just over 4kg in the week, no side effects but quickly learning to eat and excerise to get the best results. I'm over 100kg, so I've got a lot of work to do, but I'm keeping positive!
    Are you sleeping ok? The first 3 days were the worst for me sleep wise!

    I've been on it for 4 days now, no sleep issues at all. I take mine at 05:00 am to avoid any funny business, come end of the day, i'm feeling tired and ready to sleep.

    Hope you're going ok! I think the first few days is the hardest.

    Thanks Charlie,

    It has been a little rough. First couple of days was lack of sleep and now its pretty easy. Only issue I have now is a little prostate unease.

    Felt like I was going to urinate when I was training in jiujitsu, lol

    Plus a little retrograde ejaculation, the joys!

    Did you think of telling your doc about this? It's not a typical side effect of Duromine. Besides, Duromine might exacerbate an undiagnosed health condition... I think, this is a serious thing and should better be checked.

    Applause for jiujitsu!

    Thank you for your message. I am meeting with my doc tonight and will discuss this with him.

    Hopefully its not something serious as non of my past blood test have raised any concerns with PSA.

    How's everyone doing? I'm 2.5 weeks in. Lost 3.5kgs in total.

    I didn't take my Duromine on the weekend, drank and ended up eating McDonald's and more. Put on 1.3kg on the weekend but today I've lost that again.

    I had read somewhere to eat a little more for a day or two to trick your body out of a plateau, but I won't go that far again. It was surprising to see how one day of overeating and drinking can plonk on 1.3kg so quickly. Glad it's off by Wednesday though.

    Hello everyone,
    I am also new to duromine and looking for some advice. I just started my first pack yesterday, so yesterday and today I have not felt hungry but was A bit light headed so both days I have had loads of water, 2 cups of tea with soy milk, 1 cuppa soup, some raisins for a snack and then an egg white omelette with beans for dinner. I have no idea if I’m eating too much or too little. My weight is 83kg & I am 5.2” any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thank You

    A great way to track how much your eating is by using a calorie counter app - I use My Fitness Pal and it's awesome.
    I am around the same height and was roughly the same starting weight as you and I eat around 1000-12000 calories a day - I find anything less than that for a few days and my body goes into starvation mode and it just holds onto anything and everything I eat and stores it as fat.

    Good luck!
