    Hi. I have been on duromine for almost a month. I was prescribed by my doc after gaining weight (again) on antidepressants (lovan 20mg) I have been calorie counting and following a exercise regime which includes toning and cardio. I am failing though! I only lost 2kgs in the first 3 weeks and then gained them back in the 4th week!!! I have logged EVERY SINGLE calorie... Even when I have just one jelly bean. I am using my fitbit Charge HR 2 to track everything. I exercise 4-5 days a week. I have quit smoking, I am cut down on drinking and I have not eaten anything enjoyable for weeks. I need some reassurance that all of this is not in vain. The lack of progress has just made my anxiety and self loathing reach a whole new level. I have made another doc appointment and an appointment with a counsellor because I am at a point of surrender.

    Counting carbs to? I just recently started duromine and my friend is like a nutritionist so i get all me advise and food plans from her!! Been going to the gym early in the mornings and eating 3 small meals a day plus snacks like fruit or a handful of nuts and lots of water! Only been on it for 3 days and lost 2.5kg!! Some people are different though so hang in there and seek help from your doctor and ask what your not doing right?

    I drink sooo much water! And my fitbit tracks everything, it shows me carbs, protein and fat. I am going to see my doc this week. She didn't give me much direction at my first appointment so maybe I can get some better advice.

    Yeah when i went to the doctor he was just like “i can perscribe you duromine” i asked what it did and he told me if supresses your appitite and thats it!!! Everything i know about duromine, i got off the internet! I have researched it that much!

    I have no side effects as of yet only that its helping me loose weight and im not as hungry! But hopefully the doctor gives you some insight! Unlike my doctor
