    Hi. I'm on day 2 of 40mg and am not experiencing any side effects. No feeling of energy , no loss of appetite, slept like normal last night.

    Has this happened to anyone else. I'm watching what I eat but could eat as normal and still crave food.

    Hmmm any answers please.

    Hey, I'm on day 5 of the 40mg and I'm the same as you. I don't feel energetic and certainly no loss of appetite to speak of. I had a container of pineapple for breakfast and by 11:30 today I starving so made an omelette. The only thing I have noticed is I feel full quicker than I normally would. I haven't been able to finish my plates of food so I hope that is from the D. I did still want 2 chocolate cakes tonight so I'll have to wait and see I guess. My husband says it's only early days but I see lots of people who lose a few kilos in the first week but I don't feel like that is happening to me. I will weigh on Monday so see if I lost anything in the first 7 days.

    Hi, letsdropthekgs
    It's only day two so you should not worry. It is true that Duromine acts differently for different people. Give it a go, a week or so can make things clear.
    Ba-an, the same for you - don't give up too soon, because lots of us had the same effect. I always say: don't look at someone elses results, because you are different. Have a little patience and your desired loss will come. Good luck, ladies! ;)

    Thanks Kate. I won't give up, it's so busy with school holidays and my niece comes up every holiday so I haven't had the chance yet to get back into my regular routine but will do that as soon as things settle down like the kids back in school. I will be more interested to see how I am going after week 2 but still interested in how much I will weigh on Monday. My husband said the same as you that everyone is different and since I don't have a massive amount of weight to lose it will probs be harder for me. Wasn't that hard to put it on

    Yep I'm still the same as well. If I don't eat I get pretty hungry. I guess that's good in a way because it's not like I can 'forget' to eat. I'm going to go and weigh my self now and see if there is any difference since I have been on them a week, I haven't one much exercise though compared to what I normally do. I'll be right back...67.9 the scales say. I can't remember exactly what the scales said last Monday. I think it was 69.9 so I guess that's okay. I can't really tell to be honest so I will be more interested in next Mondays weigh in since I will be back into my normal schedule and kids will be back at school so I can actually do some exercise.

    Hi there, I've been on Duromine before ( a long time ago, but still...) and , no question, I could 'feel' it working. My whole body kicked up a gear. My heart rate was (a little) faster, metabolism went full speed ahead...my energy was through the roof, sleep was reduced quite a bit, hunger was non existent, appetite reduced. But this time.... Years later and i'm back on it for a kick start and nothing. Day one was a little dry mouth and slightly less hunger. But 6 days in and I have literally NO effects. I'm using pure will power to reduce my meal size (which I am doing) - no rush at all, no extra energy. Metabolism seems normal. I'm working out every day, but no boost to my energy in that department at all. And by night, I'm exhausted and crashing early. I;m on 30mg like last time, only difference is iNova brand, not 3M. I'm not able to measure myself/weigh in as i'm away for work, but i'm not noticing any difference really. Is this what you're experiencing? Anyone know why this might be the case?

    Not bad? It's fantastic if you ask me :):):)
    But don't get too excited yet, since it might be all water and the next couple of weeks your weight loss can be reduced. That's almost a usual thing. Still, keep it up!

    Just any kind of physical activity is good. Nobody says go to gym. Lots of overweight people "are actually not able to exercise properly". Not a big deal. It is that high physical load helps increase the weight loss, because your body loses a great amount of calories this way, while when you are not moving enough - > your body does not waste energy/calories hence the fat. That's all.

    Hi there, just checking in and seeing how you're feeling now. Have you had any success with weight loss? My experience sounds like it's been the exact same as yours (except i'm on 30mg). Fingers crossed!
