    Hi all!

    Another newbie here :) I took my first Duromine 30mg this morning and so far so good.

    A little about me, I turned 30 late last year and weighed in this morning at 87.1kg...I think this is the heaviest I have ever weighed. I have been with my wonderful partner for 18 months now and over that time we have both piled on a bit of weight, of course he can lose it a lot easier than me and can be very diligent about food and exercise when he wants too. I struggle with not having a very good routine, he does shift work, can't eat tomatoes, likes to eat late etc so I think it has come to the point where I just have to do what is best for me and if that means I leave him a plate of food in the fridge then so be it...I think he'll be quite happy with that as he knows I like to eat early so I'm not going to bed with a full tummy.

    I have noticed my weight gain has affected my confidence in my every day life and also my sex life, I hate clothes shopping and when I find the odd piece that I like I buy it in every colour haha I literally have the same top in 5 different colours and I rotate them for work each week. I have so many wonderful 'skinny' friends who have either been blessed with naturally slim bodies or have put in the hard yards to get there but my motivation levels have been zero! My partner keeps commenting that I am always tired and lethargic and need to exercise so I really want to get back into yoga as I did it years ago and loved it.

    I have the script for Duromine written up last October and only just now have decided I'm in the right frame of mind to start taking it :) the ladies at the chemist yesterday were very encouraging and helpful and I have let my partner and the works girls know I'm taking it...just in case.

    This morning I've had very little appetite, I got hungry at my normal breakfast time but that disappeared pretty quickly so I bought a mango smoothie whereas normally I'd have 2 slices of fruit toast and an ice coffee. My mouth feels a little gluey and I feel like I have the shakes a little but I'll see how I go over the next week.

    Wishing all of you the best of luck on YOUR journey!

    Hi Phippsy,
    Congratulations on making the decision to take duromine:) Don't worry about the annoying side effects. Try your best to keep a journal about your moods and the side effects you may experience. Having a journal helped me understand my moods. I can't wait to hear more about your weight loss journey.
    good luck xo

    Goodluck :) I've been on duro for 3 days now and down 1kg already! Hope this is a little motivation. Just remember to eat even if it's 1 dry biscuit every few hours :)

    Thanks everyone! Well I've now completed week 1...and am 2.5kg down...I think. My scales don't seem to be the most reliable things and give me a different reading depending where I put them haha so I might look into getting weighed at a chemist once a week.

    I'm definitely eating less, but compared to day 1 my appetite doesn't seem to be as supressed. I guess my body probably took a few days to get use to Duromine and now I get a few hunger pains at breakfast, lunch and dinner time but don't need to eat much for them to disappear. I made up a big batch of vege soup on the long weekend which goes down fine, but had spag bog the other night and my stomach didn't like that at all. I'm having 2 weetbix with hilo milk for breakfast each morning which fill me up fine.

    Side effect wise I still have the dry mouth and have been getting headaches the last few days...am trying my best to drink 2lt of water while I'm at work. Sleep wise I'm getting around 6 solid hours a night.

    How is everyone else going?!?!

    So I just looked at my Duromine box and it says Duromine Phentermine with the ingredient being Phentermine 30mg.

    What exactly have I got and is there a difference?

    Phippsy, there's no difference. Duromine just has some complex added, to prolong the effect of pills. That's all.
