    I've been on Duromine for about 2 months now, and it is really going well. Somebody told me you are not supposed to take it for longer than 2 months. Would it be safe to continue, and for how long can you take Duromine at a time?

    My Doctor told me 3 months but when she prescribes it she has you taking it Monday to Friday and not on the weekends. Works for me.

    Yes. Three months in a row is allowed. Can tell you for sure;)
    Then they recommend you to take a break (month, two or more) and start over again if you need.
    Otherwise if you use it more than 3 months - it gives no effect.

    Everyone is different, every doctor is different. From the drug administrators of Duromine they suggest/recommend 3 months. But only your doctor will know your personal situation and there advice should be granted before anyone elses. If you are unsure, get another doctors opinion :)

    Rock on, stay fab ;-)

    Girls, 3 months and then a break. Then another course of three months and so on...as much as you need. But don't forget to do some breaks for couple of months. That's the rule, otherwise you will first of all get used to the pills, secondly - won't have any effect. It took me two years of struggling, believe me.

    well, i just seen my dr yesterday for my third, and what i thought would be my last, prescription, but she clarified afew things for me; u can take 3 months in a row of the same DOSE, not of the whole drug altogether. I took 15mg for my first month, and 30mg for my second month; i dont have alot to lose so its working very slowly, so i now have a second month of 30mg to take and she told me i can take another month of 30mg after that before even considering 40mg.
