    Hi all just wondering if anyone got restless legs. It happened to me before when i took other weight loss tablets . My iron levels must have dropped .

    Hi Rita. I am not sure if it is side effect from the Duromine, but restless legs can certainly be caused by iron deficiency. I would suggest a supplement or including iron rich foods (sardines, salmon, dark green veg) in your diet.

    Thanks for that Audrey.last night i couldn't sleep with the restless legs and i got up , found my iron supplements and had half with some mashed potato i had in the fridge , cause you must eat something with them,and it was ok i slept the rest of the night.

    Hi I was having the same problem and did some research and found out that duromine decreases your bodies magnesium stores resulting in the restless legs. I take GoMagnesium from my health shop which also helps you rest and sleep. Its safe to take while on duromine. Take one hour before bed and I have little or no problem with sleeping at night as well.
