    Ok, I'm only a week and a half in and I feel awful ... almost all the time, nausea & headaches, cranky & tired (but I am sleeping).

    I'm really disappointed because I tried Duromine a few years ago and I felt AWESOME! Same dose as before, 40mg, I just don't know what to do - will it change? .. I've decided to skip today's tablet and see how it goes and maybe start again tomorrow?

    Hello Andy. This is probably the paradoxical reactions that are possible when you take stimulants, like Duromine. Skipping a couple of days might help re-start the action… But I see you’re selling your Duromine, so I guess it didn’t work. I am sorry to hear that and hope you will continue your weight loss campaign even if without Duromine. I wish you all the best!

    Does that actually work @April, stopping and starting again? I do really want it to work but I just couldn't handle continuing to feel that awful (especially as a single mum). No one has msg me yet with an offer, so I'm interested to hear from you. I even considered taking half for a while to see if that had better/lesser side effects

    Andy, there have been multiple cases, when Duromine was not working well for people, yet everything changed when they restarted it. In the thread ‘Duromine body’ the user Lized had a very unpleasant first attempt. She is doing better now, after stopping and restarting. Some people find it enough to stop taking it for one day, while others need to take a longer break, of about 3-7 days. I would suggest give it the last try and skip some days. If it does make you feel the same bad when you restart… I am sorry, and I will gladly ‘hold your hand’ if you decide to continue losing weight without Duromine. I am sure everyone else will also support you on your way. Best of luck!

    Thank you @April .. maybe I will try again, its been three days without, so maybe I'll start again over the weekend; I am seriously unhappy with my weight (start weight 120kg).

    If it was necessary to stay off the Duromine, do you know of any comparable alternatives @April ?

    Frankly speaking, I tried Duromine only. We have a section on the forum, which contains reviews on some popular weight loss drugs. You might check it out, if you wish. But let’s not get discouraged. Let’s cross the fingers and wait till weekend. Hopefully, everything works well this time. in the meantime, I would suggest you to start managing your water intake. Drinking more water is already somewhat helpful for weight loss. Especially if you drink water some time before meals. might help naturally reduce the portion sizes. And, just like to any person who starts weight loss campaign and doesn’t have time/forces/desire to engage into daily long exercises, I would suggest you try 5-7-10 minute trainings, like HIIT, Tabata, Plank sessions, because these can really help boost your metabolism. It’s always hard to start… and hard to not see any results on the scales for a long time, still consistency is the main thing you need to stick to while losing weight. again, fingers crossed for a better re-start and don’t lose your motivation, Andy! You can do it!

    Thanks @April .. I think that was part of the problem, while feeling sick on the Duromine it also changed the taste of a lot of things, water especially tasted awful; hard to describe, old and dusty and stale and in a cup that wasn't washed properly and .. I don't know what else, it tasted terrible! (brand new bottled water wasn't any better)

    I'll let you know how I go

    Hello Andi. How were these first days of your Duromine re-start? Again nothing of the good side? Fingers crossed it works…

    Hi @April .. so far so good, still finding it harder than usual to drink enough water (although, thankfully it isn't tasting vulgar as it did before). Just a bit of dry mouth and a lil obsessive behavior(?), along with the usual decrease in appetite

    Fingers crossed things dont turn sour again

    @April I'm actually doing ok, eating better and exercising as much as I should but we have heaps of drama at the moment. I was hoping at weight myself since its been a week but haven't had the chance (I dont own a scale because they're generally evil )

    So sorry about the drama in your life. Hope everything settles down really soon and you will be able to enjoy your progress. And of course, I am extremely happy to hear that you continue being consistent with your nutrition and exercising. Way to go, Andy! Doing great! Forget about the scales, watch how your clothes are fitting. =) and keep it strong!
