    Hi all,
    I'm 27, 174cm and got up to 95 kilos recently :-( I do 5 gym classes a week, eat clean and 80% healthy, and basically live a very healthy life BUT I am just stacking on weight. I actually have piled 18 kilos on in just under 2 years.
    Have been to Drs, naturopaths etc and have had every damn blood test, but nothing is showing up.
    I am so depressed about piling on weight, and I have turned to Duromine as a last effort.

    I am feeling OK. Day 5 is coming to an end. I have lost TWO kilos as well :)

    1) I am sleeping lightly but OK...some nights I've woken up and had lots of issues getting back to sleep
    2) I am reallyyyyyyy tired....even though I am eating 1200 calories a day (I usually ate 1500ish)
    3) Feeling a tad 'dazed' at times, and I feel a bit foggy
    4) Exercising still, but I did Body Attack (very high intensity) and felt like I was going to die!! I was dripping in thick sweat and looked crazily red...

    I also would LOVE to know if 1) how long do I stay on the pills? 2) Can you have a few alcoholic drinks?

    Everything I've been told it's for 3 months and then a break. I think Kate said something about no alcohol but I'm not sure. I am lucky to drink once a year so that's not a problem for me lol.

    Hi everyone :) new to this forum. Started taking duromine 30 (took it once before but not successfully) I'm 38, 175 cm tall and stArted at 99.7 kgs. Had put 25kgs on after my hubby left me for someone else. Addressing those things and also come to terms with the fact I'm a compulsive eater. Side effects wise- Struggling with dry mouth big time! Other side effect is tonight I can't get back to sleep (hence I'm on here lol) exercising every day and food cut down to three standard meals and a couple of small snacks..feeling more energetic but the not sleeping a bit of a covers. Only day three though so hopefully it gets better.

    Hi

    Good luck. My main side effect is the insomnia...two nights in a row...i think last night i had three hours sleep all up...very interrupted sleep. I hope it settles down soon...i havent been bothered too much by a dry mouth, a little bit...its the sleep thing! I took my dose at 4.45 am this morning as someone on here suggested earlier and dozed off for a while , so im hoping this helps me going to sleep tonight. Most ppl say the sleep thing calms down after a week or so.

    Thanks for the insight kazzgirl. Really hope the sleep improves as didn't get to sleep until 5am this morning! 3hrs for me but I seemed to manage ok today. Just realised I missed dinner tonight too, must remember to eat though as I know it helps in the weight lose. Feeling more motivated than ever today- ticked off a lot of my 'to do's' which I should have done weeks/months ago so a positive I guess. I finding today I have a very sore tongue (on the sides mainly) I keep biting down on my tongue on the sides subconsciously for some reason? Wondering if anyone has experienced it? Very annoying- having to wear a mouth guard to bed tonight as it a quite painful. Fingers crossed a better sleep tonight

    Hi

    I think it helped as i slept better last night...got about 5.5 hrs ....but would have had more except for my 2 yo!!!! I became tired around 8pm so definately helped but also was probably just tired from poor sleep the two nights before....
