Im a tad nervous bout starting duromine tomorrow, ive never tried them before, read all posts in regards to it.. Worried as my blood pressure was a bit high when I went to the doctors, but doctor still gave them to me and told me come back in 2 weeks.. Wondering if anyone else has had this..
I think it might be nerves and stress...

It is OK to write long posts here, because this is the right place to do it and we always welome people who need our help.
Iunderstand your concern about your brother. The first question that came to my mind when I read this, was - do you live together or separately? Please don't take offense, but do you actually know he is not eating junk anymore? Because this might be the first and the most frustrating problem (people tend to deny they still eat junk foods even if they say they started a diet), it is a normal thing actually, since quitting old habits becomes a very difficult process...Sometimes we don't even notice and realize how much unhealthy food we eat, until (for example) we see it on video. From what I have read, it is the only possible reason he cannot lose any weight. Because you wrote that all tests were good and he was healthy. You see, even if you are doing a lot of sports and workout hard, you will keep all that body weight if you still consume more calories that you burn throughout a day. Or maybe (if I'm wrong and he eats healthy) he needs just more time and his body weight will start decreasing little by little. As for high blood pressure, unfortunately my doctor told me you cannot combine these medications. So, obviously he should normalize the BP first and maybe afterwards the doctor will prescribe Duromine. I wish you both stay healthy and achieve your weight loss goal, still you should rely on doctor's recommendations, because we can only share our experience but cannot advice what you should do.
Good luck and stay share your experience with us!
I'm surprised his bp is elevated.
I wonder if it was a one of higher reading due to stress, going to the dr automatically makes some people stress. Can you measure his bp at home??
The only other thing reduce salt intake.
Hope I have been a little bit helpful
Xenical haha omg i took this for months with little results but i know it worked for some people... seriously. ... you cant fart unless your on the toilet. You cant even relax your butthole. This bright orange oily liquid comes out and it stinks!!!of course the more fatty things you wat the more of this studf you will get.Audrey3 said:I am sorry but I have to agree with your doc. High blood pressure is one of the counter indications for Duromine and can seriously harm your health. Duromine may increase your blood pressure which is why you can not take it if you already have problems in that area. I am sorry for the let down. How about trying something else like Xenical?
HAHAHA That is SUCH an honest response.

The amount of times i was driving home or had to leave work because i forgot i cant even do the tiniest fart or thought it was "safe" haha
Seriously though... for me.. the physical affects xenical gave me were just to much to bare.
You shit orange oil. Toilets a mess... you cant use other peoples toilets. Ahh just gross.
