    Hi all

    I started Duromine yesterday 23/02/2013. Am extremely thirsty. I have an underactive thyroid so losing weight is an issue. I am currently 71kg and need to lose at least 10kg. I also get migraines - have a headache now. Not sure if you can guide me - Are painkillers such as myprodol, stilpayne and maxalt wafers safe to take whilst on duromine. I take eltroxin for the thyroid problem.

    Hello swetie! Welcome!

    Well 71kg is not such heavy weight and you can lose your desired 10 kg quite easily with Duromine.
    Have you consulted a therapist or nutritionist? Because I used to have headaches for a while, but not sure about those meds you are taking.
    So, its better to ask a doc. Anyway, duromine actually doesn't have many drug interactions. Good luck, honey!

    P.S. Take care of yourself, don't forget to drink much water and eat enough.

    Thanks Kate. I am drinking about 3ltrs of water a day. Yesterday I had cereal for breakfast and during the day a pear, carrots and cucumbers. It was my 18th wedding anniversary so we went out for dinner to Ocean Basket. I did lose 1kg since starting on Saturday. I called my doc and the pharmacist and they advised that stilpayne is ok to take. I was just very scared as I googled duromine and read numerous scary stories. I slept for a few hours last night whiich was great as sunday night was a night witout any sleep. I need another painkiller now as I have loads of work to do and can't concentraye with a headache. I take my duromine at 5am. So nice to be part of this forum.

    Hi Kate,

    I just started taking duromine on 14th april 2015 to loose a load amount of weight. Im 106 kgs and want to lose at lease 40 kgs. I have hyperthyroidism and are on medication. After googling side affects with duremine and beign on medication im scared something might happen now. The funny thing is my docoter prescribed me the duromine. Is it safe for me to take them? Im a little worried
