This might be your first attempt to use Duromine and you might already know that it is an anorectic medication used to fight excess weight. 

Or you have tried using it at a higher dose and had to face unpleasant body response and wonder whether you can use Duromine 15mg capsules instead. 

Will they provide a weight loss effect? Is it even worth trying to use the lower dose? And so many questions to think over, be it for a first-time user or someone with experience of Duromine use. 

Please note! No matter the dose of the active substance, this medication is still intended for use in certain groups of people, such as:

  • aged 12 and older;
  • suffering from obesity (BMI of 30 and more);
  • suffering from being overweight (BMI of 25 to 29,9), with concomitant risk factors.

Does Duromine 15mg work

Of course, it does! Duromine has been successfully used by many overweight patients as an effective slimming aid. However, to turn into a real success, it should be used as part of an overall weight management plan that includes a proper eating plan and an increase in your daily physical activity.

If you want to know exactly how does Duromine work (15mg dosage), let us give you a short insight. 

The hard gelatin capsules contain 15 mg of the active substance, called Phentermine. It comes in the form of a resin, which ensures a gradual release of the main component in the stomach over 12 hours.

When you ingest Duromine 15mg, the weight loss begins by exerting a special action over a brain area that controls appetite. This action makes your brain convince your body that you are not hungry over a longer period.

With this being said, it should be noted that the response to treatment depends on a variety of factors. The main one is your individual body features. It means that the lowest dose does provide the required effects and perfect results for some people while being less effective in others. 

This doesn’t mean though that it is wise to opt for a higher dose every time. The risk of adverse reactions grows along with the increase in dose. Keep this in mind. 

Let’s now dig into the main question to be discussed in this article…

15 mg Duromine effectiveness

As already mentioned, every dose of Duromine is intended to help overweight and obese people lose weight, when they fail to do so with dieting and exercise alone. 

Of course, when using any slimming medication, you won’t be able to achieve results without a proper weight loss plan. 

Why? 

Because it helps create the calorie deficit, which is indispensable for weight loss. 

So, what does Duromine do, if you still have to restrict yourself and push through higher activity requirements? 

It helps you stick to a diet by suppressing your hunger and cravings for unhealthy foods. 

At the same time, the impressive results that you achieve allow you to stay on track and lead a more active lifestyle.

Now, let’s check out the results that you might expect if you choose Duromine 15mg and it turns out to be the right dose for you. 

According to clinical trials, those who introduce and stick to all changes that induce slimming, in just 12 weeks manage to:

  • lose at least 5% of the initial weight;
  • learn to control their eating habits and activity levels in order to maintain and improve the results achieved.

It is natural for you to wonder whether indeed this dose is sufficient to achieve the desired weight loss or if the higher one provides a higher Duromine effectiveness.

As mentioned, your weight loss rate is directly affected by your body peculiarities, and these include:

  • initial weight,
  • age,
  • gender, 
  • physical activity,
  • eating habits.

It’s logical and you probably read it in thousands of articles already…

However, the main factor that influences the outcome of your “relationship” with this weight loss drug is the way your body responds to its action. 

You may find the 15mg to be just right for you or it might be completely ineffective. The perfect level of Duromine effectiveness of any dosage for every person can be achieved through trial and error. 

The great news is that you only have 3 options to try, so not a huge experiment to hold. Let’s see how the 3 doses differ from each other. It might help you make the final choice…

Duromine 15mg vs 30mg vs 40mg

Advantages of fighting obesity using Duromine 15mg capsules:

  • sufficient anorexigenic effect;
  • low risk of side effects, compared to the use of higher dosages of the drug;
  • low risk of adverse reactions when combined with other medications;
  • can be used in patients, whose body has a severe negative response to the 30 mg Duromine dose.

Advantages of using Duromine 30 mg capsules:

  • optimal anorexigenic effect;
  • fast weight loss;
  • effective weight loss results

Advantages of using Duromine 40 mg capsules:

  • strong anorexigenic effect;
  • it can help resume the weight loss process, if the 30mg dose stops working.

It is natural for people to notice having a stronger appetite suppressing effect when they use Duromine 30 mg capsules, compared to Duromine 15 mg capsules. Still, if the 15mg dose provides a sufficient effect for you, we do not recommend switching to higher doses.

Duromine 15 mg not working

Yes, you can face a situation when you feel no effect whatsoever from the use of Duromine, including when you use doses higher than the 15 mg dose. We already discussed that everything depends on your body response… 

This is the case when either of the two occurs:

  • Duromine 15mg is an insufficient dose for you.
  • You need to take Duromine longer than once to see its effects kick in.

Your body needs time to get used to the drug action. Even those using higher doses sometimes need to continue taking the pills for up to 10 days before they notice any effects. 

If it’s your 10th day of using the drug and you notice no effects, it is likely that you should switch to a higher dose.

If you’ve been using Duromine for 15mg for up to a week and felt the effects for just a few days, you can still try to resume its action. Stop taking it for 3 to 4 days, and then get back to the usual dosing schedule. If it’s still not working, you definitely need to switch to a higher dose.

Interesting fact!

Don’t throw away the 15mg dose. You can use it when you get to the end of your slimming course in order to avoid Duromine withdrawals. For more information, please read about

Duromine 15mg side effects

Do they exist with such a small dose of the active substance? Yes, they do.

True, they are milder and manifest less frequently than with the higher doses of the drug. However, you should realize that you can get one or more adverse reactions when you use the 15mg dose.

The first thing to keep in mind is the possible allergic response to the new drug, if you never took any medications that contain the active substance of Duromine. If you did take any and had an allergic reaction, then you should avoid using this drug at all. 

The second important aspect to remember is to inform your doctor if any of the following applies to you:

  • you suffer from chronic diseases,
  • you use any other medications,
  • you are trying to conceive or are breastfeeding.

Most frequent side effects of Duromine 15mg are:

  • sleeplessness,
  • dry mouth and feeling thirsty,
  • headache.

Please note that the use of this weight loss drug can impair attention and focus. Therefore, we recommend staying away from driving and managing complex machinery during the first 2-3 days of use. Better check out your reaction before you get behind the wheel.

Summing up… Duromine 15mg can be just as effective as higher doses for you and you can get the same side effects from its use. If you’re suffering from severe health conditions, using this lowest dose might be the only option for you.

Maintaining and improving your health should always be your priority, even if your main goal is to lose weight for aesthetic reasons. Stay healthy!
