    Good luck, Thulie! Although I don't think you need the pills with that much weight...

    I just meant that the pills are only advised if you are obese. But you're not. They are prescribed if your BMI is above 30. Well, you can take them of course. Some people want to lose 30 kg and more, you - 10kg. Usually doctors suggest to try it on your own, to avoid side effects. But I guess you just can't stick to the diet and exercises, so you need help of the pills. I wish I could avoid drug therapy when I had to use the pills...

    Anyways, didn't mean to scare you, just sharing.
    ps. Are you aware that you still gonna need low-calorie diet and exercises? Even with the pills. Otherwise when you stop taking them the weight comes back. Duromine still requires a lifestyle change. Don't worry, you will lose, just make sure the dose is the smallest one - 15mg for the beginning and you keep special regime - 4-5 small meals per day, lots of water, exercises (at least walking for 30-40 minutes a day) and everything will be great!
