    I just got my prescription of duromine for a month, and i'm ready to eat it tomorrow! Pretty nervous about it after reading on the side effects. However, i'm going to keep positive and hope duromine helps and teaches me about diet control!

    oh and Hi everyone!!!

    Hi, Butterpops!

    Don't worry - side effects common thing for all the medications / pills. Plus, some people don't have side effects at all;)

    Anyways, welcome to the forum and once you decided to change your life to better - good luck!

    Hi butterpops. My first tablet this morning. So far no problems other than a little giddiness. Good luck today too.

    I had a rough taste in my mouth for about 3 days drinking 2-3 ltr of water helps :) , some wicked dreams but no other side effects. Iam on Day 9 and have lost 2 kilos. It is amazing the way it seems to erase your hunger. Not the habit but the hunger is NIL. I have to remind myself to eat to keep my metabolism going.

    I have a little light headed feeling here and there but nothing major. Wonder if it is just the low calories.

    thanks for the tip! i woke up with a weird taste in my mouth and that taste got worst before my morning jog! I'll be chugging down lots of water :)
    Yes, i had to remind myself to eat breakfast today too, usually i would be starving at this timing.

    Morning Butterpops: How did you get on last night? I wasn't tired at all until well after midnight & was wide awake this morning at 5. Also woke up very dry mouthed with that hangover sensation again. Without taking water intravenously there’s probably not much you can do about that effect.

    Hi Stephen, I was tired at 10pm but i couldn't drift off to sleep. It's more of like lying on the bed peacefully. I woke up multiple times throughout the night - 2am, 2.30am, 5am and finally 6am when i decided i was too energetic and went for a morning run before my work!
    Do you feel your heartbeat increasing? I don't feel much difference with my heart rate.

    Hello Stephen and Butterpops,
    The heart rate increases sometimes becuse of high energy levels, not many people do have them.
    As for a bad taste (Kezzamcc) it comes because you lose fat tissue. It's one of unpleasant effects of weight loss we have to deal with:cool:

    I'm the same as mummajessjess, I'm 8 days in and everything seems to have gone back to normal but i'm a lot more alert and have a bit more energy that lasts longer in the day. I unfortunately am suffering from a dry, foul tasting mouth, I know its bad and full of sugar but I chew a lot of gum, plus it keeps my breath night and minty as I work retail. I take my pill at 6am and lay in bed until around 7am kind of letting the drug wake me up.

    I blog at the end of every day (if not every second) if anyone would like to follow me or for me to follow them i'd be more than happy to give whatever tips and help I can :)
