    hi,
    I started taking duromine 15mg on Saturday 05/08/2011 , i take it at 6.30am but i am also taking hoodia 3 times a day which seems to help tremendously. I have BP problems and i am taking 3 different types of BP tablets a day .Appart from not sleeping well , i have no side effects.

    With the duromine i am not having any BP problems at all and now in day 7 have lost 4.3kg , i started at 99.8 kg and my goal weight is 70kg .

    I am not hungry at all but eat one weetbiks in the morning , a small roll with tomato for lunch and a egg or toast for supper and drink litres of water ,

    My question is ,is it ok to take the two (hoodia and duromine 15mg ) in combo seeing hoodia is natural product

    Hi,

    Just noticed that you mentioned you are taking a CLA thermo burner, I guess that's a fat burner? You're taking a lot of pills, do take care! Exercise in moderation is always the best.

    Suggestion on how to feel better when you're feeling down/ moody:-
    (1) massage - either body/ shoulder/ head/ neck or foot reflexology or facial. Body massage and facial are the best for relieving depression! Second only to exercise. :) which you can/ should be doing too. However, it can be a little pricey.
    (2) watch a comedy. That usually helps, though it's not easy finding a good comedy as and when depression strikes.
    (3) sleep (no kidding, it works)

    Of course there are other stuff, like exercising or talking to close friends, spend time with funny/ chirpy cheery people, taking a long bath, going for pendicure/ manicure/ retail therapy but often when I'm moody, I find that the above 3 are the most practICal for me.

    Cheers,
    Kasey

    I look at this whole thing like so , i am only on Duromine for a short period of time so i have to make the most of it .Maybe i have gone a tad overboard with such drastic lifestyle changes but i dont want to go down this route again .I want my chemical romance with duromine to a once off and i need to lose the weight once and for ever . By taking CLA , a fat burner , eating a lot of "fat burning " fruits and veggies , keeping away from fats and sugars , eating and living healthy can only be for my own good . Honestly my Blood pressure has dropped to the normal range since i have been on Duromine and i want to keep it that way .I am taking 3 different types of blood pressure tablets and 2 pills for my heart every single day of my life , if i can change that situation and if i can get of the cholestrol tablets as well that would be great .

    I have noticed over the last couple of days that i am getting hungry obviously my body is getting used to the dosage so i have cut out the hoodai and am now taking duromine 15 mg x 2 , i take one table at 05.00 am when i get up for work and one at 06.30 am when i arrive at work . So far so good , if i can handle the 30mg and i keep losing at the rate i am i will be at goal weight by the end september otherwise i will get a last prescription for 30mg .Duromine is not expensive in South Africa + -30 dollars american or R230.00 in local currency but i would like to reach my goal weight asap

    Hi Wisp,

    your diet of fruits, vegetables, grilled white meat and pasta (in the right portion/ quantity) sounds healthy and sustainable. Good for you!

    Do check with your doctor on your blood pressure/ health condition and whether duromine 15mg x 2 or duromine 30mg is suitable for you?

    are you currently exercising? If you can, try to?

    Glad to see someone as motivated as you and having the results to show for it.
    Thanks for being a motivation! :)
    I'll stop duromine soon, because it's not really working for me anymore, and i'll start exercising again.

    Cheers,
    Kasey

    That's a lot of weight you've lost so far. Keep it up :) careful with your symptoms such as dizzy spells. Good luck! :)

    Well am coming to the end of my tablets and its seems that i have hit the wall , i havent lost anything for a week now , so i guess thisis the end of me a duromine . I will be seeing my doctor and switching to Ciplatrim which apperently rekick starts the process when you hit the wall. I have lost 16 kg in two months but battleing with the last 10 .Duromine really helped me and i hope it does the same for everyone that reads this , but unfortunatly it has done as much for me as it can .Goodluck to everyone on this forum :)
