    I've noticed the last month or so I have had the worst breakouts on my face! I have always had the odd break out here and there and never perfectly clear skin but this is just ridiculous! My entire jawline and neck is covered with break outs. It is really starting to make me feel like hiding in my house and putting a paperbag over my head. :( The only thing I have changed in that month is that I started taking Duromine so I'm wondering if that could be the cause? Anybody else had this side effect? I feel good about the weight loss but nobody is going to see it if I can't leave the house! It's a bit annoying that my diet is the best it has ever been, I eat only healthy and natural stuff, cut out all junk food and my skin is disgusting, it was clearer when I was living off a pizza and chocolate diet! :( :(

    Hello, White Rose!
    Well, personally I have never had such an issue...but heard of it, so may suggest it is caused by the weight loss. You see, when women lose weight it's first of all the subcutaneous fat that comes off. The lack of subcutaneous fat in women may result in menstrual break, i.e. hormonal imbalance. Hence the pimples may come, too. So, it is better to see a doctor and be ready to hear "hormonal imbalance" diagnosis. No worries, it's normal for such changes in the body as weight loss. Doctor may prescribe some hormones to normalize your skin condition and other processes. Still, be sure you tell him/her about Duromine pills you're taking. Because the doc should adjust a lower dose of hormones in this case than usual.
    Have a nice day, darling and get well soon!:)

    White Rose you are not alone here. My face is not looking the best at the moment and the more make up I apply to hide the blemishes well the worse it gets. Totally agree with Kate we should go to the Drs. Just a little trick I've been using Bi Carb Soda ( Australian made ) its absolutely wonderful. Mix it up in a paste with water, apply to the neck and face. Let dry and then wash off. It's amazing how it exfoliates your skin and makes it feels soft! Hope this helps!

    Oh and you can try some marigold solution (alcohol based), take a cotton pad and carefully clean up affected areas twice a day. This solution dries the pimples out and takes off the redness a little bit.

    upd. it is also called Calendula

    Well my cycles have already been going crazy for the last 2 years, just another issue I'm already dealing with! I guess already having that issue and then losing the weight has just made my hormones go completely bonkers. :( So I'm not sure if the doctor would give me anything for it, I might just have to put up with it until I stop losing weight. My doctor did already give me some gel to use which dries everything out but it's also made my skin really sore and itchy and flakey. Just can't win!

    I think you can buy it in the drugstore:rolleyes: no prescription is needed. My boys had some acne issues...so this was long ago, but this solution got to be still available.

    I have ended up with the worst pimple breakout on my d├ęcolletage. They are so red and ugly. I thought it might have been the depo shot but now I think about it, it's more likely to be the duro.

    i had lots of little pimples, especially on my forehead, in my first month of duromine which was 15mg. As soon as i started my second month, which was 30mg, the pimples stopped and my face cleared up again.
    I found that catching the pimples early and using apple cider vinegar on them, stopped them from erupting and kept them under my skin.

    I have been getting heaps of pimples since taking it, I asked my doctor about it and he said that a lot of people that take it have breakouts in the first month.

    Hi Rose, my daughter also struggled with her hormones and irregular periods, during which time she gained a LOT of weight for no apparent reason. She was diagnosed with "polytheistic ovaries", which turns out to be the cause of all the symptoms. Just a suggestion, maybe you should have a full blood work check up done. Good luck, I really hope it gets better for you soon!

    Hi, I didn't get pimples but little bumps? So like a pimple but without any thing inside.
    I made sure I washed / cleansed / toned my face am/pm very well and smothered it in rosehip oil at night (cold compressed) so you look like a very greasy freak, but when you wake up your skin is lovely. Helps reduce the look of fine line, blah blah blah..... Similar to bio oil .

    yup got a few in odd places on my face and body... water only ,nothing inside them, try not to scratch or even rub them, wash as you normally do, and leave them alone, they do go away, and the more water you drink the better ..... BEEN 11 weeks on D, tried 30 mg and 40mg, and now and again the pimples do return, but when left alone, they disappear quicker, I have never had acne, or pimple issues,but these" water breakout pimples "seem to be part of the D side effects.. hope yours go away soon ..

    I found that baking soda mixed with water (make it as paste) and then applied directly to pimples, dries them out a little bit during the night. Although it's kinda unpleasant feeling on the face....Well, I say anything it takes to get rid of pimples)))

    Wow 6 months is a long time on Duromine, I thought you were only allowed to take it for 3 months max? My skin is also suffering at the moment from it

    I did but highly suspect it was because my body was undernourished. When I ate next to nothing and was underweight (years ago) my whole skin broke out so badly when it is usually perfectly clear.
