    I don’t know to be honest.. I feel like there “not doing” what there meant to do, I’ve heard people talk of like major energy spurts and not being able to sleep. But I really haven’t felt a difference only different thing I have felt is having a dry mouth ALL of the time, I don’t know if this is normal or if it comes after the first week. Not sure lol

    Well, in fact not everyone gets the energy. and some people even report of a better sleeping pattern on Duromine than they had before it.
    What about the appetite? Any changes with that?

    80% of your weight loss is your diet, I have been focusing more on my diet over this last week and the weight is coming off easily. Definitely try to change what you eat and swap out processed foods for more whole foods as well. Read labels on food and you may be surprised & definitely find out what your daily calorie goal is - My Fitness Pal is awesome for tracking food. However exercise is also important too! If you don't feel comfortable going to the gym do some at home workouts, so so many on youtube you can find and make sure to incorporate weights into your diet, even light weights will start to work those muscles which is really good for you and building them up so during rest you can burn more calories too! It's also interesting to calculate your resting metabolic rate, just to see how much your body burns while living each day basically. Good luck!

    I can tell my appetite has changed I defiantly don’t eat as much as I used to, going from having more then three meals a day including snack to just having maybe one with a snack.. i just don’t feel interested in eating and just not hungry at all.. now that you say some people sleep better, I would defiantly be one of those people I can get to sleep straight away but before I started I had trouble getting to sleep and don’t feel super tired when I wake up. Maybe it’s just my self conscious trying to tell me I can’t do it, I have very low confidence in myself and reading some of the post on hear has helped a little bit.

    Aw that sucks :( how has your journey been since starting (after the first two months) my doctor says it works differently for everyone and it’s all how you use the drug whatever that means. Think I need to sit down and figure out my diet and exercise routine, I know what I want out of this but I love chocolate so that makes things hard ;)

    That's right Aprille! That's exactly what you need to do - to make a good plan. As for chocolate... Don't buy it! Replace with natural cocoa powder.. try adding it to your morning porridge or natural yogurt. You will get the flavor that you enjoy and will be able to control the amount of sugar and fats in this "chocolate".

    I also hate the gym because I feel like I am being judged (I know thats doubtful but doesnt change anything) but I lap swim which is amazing exercise. Maybe an option?
