    Hi

    I am starting my duromine journey tomorrow I was actually prescirbed it Nov but had a bout of Deperssion and didn't take it as it was not the right time. Now I am ready to start again.

    I have always been big and in 2012 had a massive weight loss but after over 6 years put it all back on. I am an adventurous person and currently my weight is restricting what i want to do.

    My sister is getting married in 10 and months when I put on the bridesmaid dress I was horrified.

    I am not expecting a miracle but if this can restart my weight loss journey then that is all i need. I have 15mg as my Dr is not a huge fan of the drug. We will see how we go. I just want to be fit and healthy again.

    I'm not sure in regards to night working, but maybe take it when you first wake up for your shift? and see how you go? I take it usually when I get up first thing in the morning at around 5.30am for myself!

    Good luck for your journey! Make sure to post updates!

    I agree with babbles. Adjust Duromine intake to your daily schedule. It's definitely not a good idea to risk having no sleep during the day. Working nights shifts is already stressful for the body.

    By the way, how long have you been working at night?

    Yeah I try to take it as soon as I get up. Seems to work.

    Going pretty well. Had the shakes and a headache and racing heart first few days but that has calmed down.

    Today I had a bit of a cheat day as I had a wine tour and pizza lunch. Already feel bloated. Will be weighing on Monday.

    I have been working nights for well over a year now.
