    Hi, Tamara:)
    I think you can. A friend of mine did so once and everything was fine. Well, better you to call your doc (if you can) and ask to be sure.
    Anyway, I think 2 of 15mg will be accurately = 30mg. ;)
    Oh, you can take one pill in the morning and another one later at lunch, but no later than 8-10 hours before sleep. This will make the effect longer. I hope it will give you more effect than 15mg.
    Take care, darling.

    When I went to see my Doctor for something un-related and she asked me how I was going and I said that it was fine she said I could go up to the 30 mg tablets (from 15 mg) and she said to finish off the 15 mg packet by taking 2 till I finished the box and then start on the 30 mg packet, so she didn't see a problem with it. But like Kate said..if you can check with your own doctor then that would be good too.

    Thanks girls.....
    We only have 3 doctors in our town and mine is on holidays....don't really trust the other ones as one gave me medication last year that almost killed me and now have life long problems because of it. I'll ask the chemist, see what he says :)

    Hi,
    No. I wouldn't recommend you do that. As you know the most common side effect of Duromine is insomnia. So it is better to take the pill in the morning, while its effect comes throughout a day and the energy boost decreases by the evening, so you can sleep normally. But if you take one pill in the morning (for example) and the other in afternoon(?) or evening, then you most likely won't sleep at all. I don't think you want it o_O

    Be careful, dear and better ask your doc.
