Duromine vs Saxenda

Duromine is an anorexiant and a stimulant of the central nervous system and its action exerts through appetite suppression and hunger reduction.

Duromine is used in courses and ensures a double effect due to the fact that it:

blocks neurons that stimulate appetite;
promotes activation of neurons and MC4Rs that reduce appetite and helps to lose a considerable amount of excess weight when combined with diet and physical activity.

Saxenda is quite effective in helping people lose weight due to its specific effect on the nerve centers. It is believed that the drug can help you lose up to 8% of body weight when combined with diet and exercise.

Saxenda injections inhibit hunger, thereby reducing daily calorie intake and, as a result, reducing weight.

This medication is designed to help fight obesity in adults and children aged 12 to 17 years.

In the Nevergiveup Team discussion Saxenda Tolerance, Moving To Duromine, a 59-year-old man told how he managed to lose 15 kilograms of excess weight in five months with Saxenda. After that, he developed a tolerance to the drug, so he switched to Duromine for further weight loss.

When assessing the risks of side effects, remember that in rare cases, Saxenda can cause tumors and cancer of the thyroid gland. Therefore, the drug should be taken under the supervision of your doctor.
