    I have just been prescribed duromine 15mg but only to take it every second day. Do you think this will have any effect and still see the remarkable weight loss that duromine provides? My doctor said that to take it every second day you can stay on it longer..??

    I don't think so. Duromine can only be used 3 months in a row, after that period you should take a break. That's a fact, otherwise you won't have any effect or even develop addiction to it.

    My dr has told me that taking it every two days does work, just not as effectively. But its a good way to ease into having the drug in ur system, and a good way to ween ur body off it, rather than just stopping abrubtly.
    Ive been on duromine 4 months in a row now, and about to start my 5th.
    I did 15mg for the first month, and then 3 months of 30mg, and now about to start 40mg.
    My dr has told me that u CAN take it for more than 3 months, just not at the same dose, because after 3 months on the same dose/regularity, it loses its effectiveness.
    I have read on other forums and seen youtube videos of people who have taken it for over a year.

    If its the real thing u are taking, prescribed by a dr and purchased at a pharmacy, not bought online from some unauthorised website or email address, then its relatively safe to take for extended periods of time.

    Just make sure u visit ur dr before the end of each month and tell them what uv been thru and experienced exactly, and they will know by ur experiences and weight loss, exactly what dose to keep u on and how often to take it.

    The body will develop some level of addiction to it, which is why u need to ween urself off it the same way u ease into it, every 2nd day, then every 3rd day, etc.

    Thats what my dr has told me anyway.
    Best of luck.

    Yeah that's basically what he said that it does work the same and this way you can be on it for longer. I am hoping it does work the same, I don't feel hungry at all but really thirsty and that's only the 15mg so I'm hoping I get the result on that, but i go back in just over three weeks to be a healthy weight for my height I need to be around 50 kilos, so that means I need to lose 17 kilos. Here's hoping ✌️
    Did you lose much when you were in the 15mg every second day?

    Hi @ pocketfulofsunshine.

    I didnt take it every 2nd day. My dr had initially told me that if after my first day i was worried about bad side effects and couldnt handle it, then to take it every 2nd day, but if i handled it ok, to take it every day.
    I was really thirsty my first day too, but i felt ok, no other side effects that i couldnt handle, so i took it every day. But those were my instructions, so u need to follow ur drs instructions, even if u feel ok, because everyone is different, with different bodies and different circumstances.
    I started at 62.5kg and i dont have much to lose, (about 8 - 10kg) so i only lost 1kg in my first month on 15mg. But that was my body, so dont see that as the normal outcome, many women lose more, especially if u have more to lose.
    The best advise i can give u is to not compare ur progress to others because every single person progresses differently on different doses and taking them different ways.

    Best of luck and health.
