    Need some advice please form others who have been on duromine longer than I. My family has a virus going around and I'm sure I have been coming done with it for a few days. I took day 1 of duromine yesterday and other than energy boost for the day no side effects. My question is should you stop taking duromine while sick? I feel if I take it I might over do it exercise and energy expenditure wise and thought rest might be good for a few days. I didn't covert his either e do and it is time to take my pill now. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    if you have no side effects,from D stay on it ,just take your day slow, if your body is sore flu like symptoms then skip exercise, but keep eating right , you going to get sick SOONER OR LATER ,once you reach goal weight and off of D, SO IT is good to make good habits now, while you on D and sick, some people do not eat when they sick, but when they better they eat the wrong foods or they drink the wrong drinks , if you do not have a chest cold ,or head cold, yet, light exercise is fine, not elevating your heart rate, as that is usually dangerous if you have a virus or flu ..drink all your water, it helps with recovery when you ill ..if you taking other meds for the virus, then consult your doctor first, or maybe Kate can give you advice here about that ,I did notice that many people on D show symptoms of flu , and complain about sore ears, and sore throat, not sure if these are Duromine symptoms for some people bodies reacting to the D or if it is just coincidence that people got sick when starting Duromine..Kate and your doctor would have better advice for you on this question..

    Thanks. Bit the bullet and decided to take it. I'm only on the low dose 15mg and between a sleepless night up with sick kids before day 1 and getting a walk in I found that it was wearing off come about 4 in the afternoon and I was feeling tired. This is fabulous for me as lack of sleep sets off a migraine. So hopefully between the pill and minimising my energy output if needed I should still be able to sleep well again tonight. Down half a kilo form day 1 so it is encouraging. Thanks for the input.

    you doing fine , and only you know your body and its limit, so continue to do what works for you , try some Magnesium if you struggle with migraine, I have found it has helped my migraines, and loads of water and fresh air do too .. if you only feeling tired and not hungry after 4 that is not a bad thing at all, as some people struggle to sleep and do not have a suppressed appetite on 15mg, so the 15mg must be enough for your body for now, keep going you can do this .. :)

    I have found less than appetite suppressant I simply have no cravings. Which means that whatever I do eat satisfies. I don't eat fat due to gallbladder issues so sugar has been my downfall when having cravings. These cravings are gone so am able to eat meat and salad and this satisfying hunger and I don't need the sweets.

    Excellent, I have had the same as you , and I love it... I used to be a savoury person , then when I turned 40 I SUDDENLY started to crave sugary foods, not sure if it had to do with hormones, and my thyroid ,but it was terrible to control , I am not a snacker or take out food person, and do not usually grab a slice of cake or cookies like some people who love sugar, mine was always chocolate... lol .. since D not once have I wanted or asked for chocolate, I have reduced my sugar intake in my coffee and have none in my herbal tea now, so far so good, hoping these will be lasting changes once I am off of D ,I have also found my cravings for carbs, bread, rice potato, is not significant either , which has been my reason for weight gain, I USED TO love a carb overload,Especially on weekends ... now EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK is the same for me .. consistency is key for me, just need to get my calories in check, not eating enough, and not doing a full 45 min workout, I am aiming for 45 minutes 5 days a weeks and 1200 calories everyday,I keep skipping lunch , or forget to eat. small changes but hopefully big results, D is good that it stops cravings, I think for most of us overweight, cravings has been our downfall, and overeating of course, lol..HAVE GR8 WEEKEND ,and I am sure we are going to read more about you weight loss and success soon, as you doing so well so far .. take care, chat later ...
