Hi there

I started Duromine 15mg yesterday. I was advised to take 15mg for two days and if I didn’t have issues sleeping then I am permitted to increase the dosage to 30mg daily.
I am 54, 169cm and 94kg. The highest weight I’ve ever been. I’ve had two children. Ten pound babies and was weighing 84 at most with my pregnancies.
i was advise to take thyroxine medication to enhance a needling treatment years ago and have never come of it. There is thyroid issues in my family. Under active thyroid.
I’ve tried numerous treatments and diets. Oberon ball - 400g weight loss over 12 weeks. It was horrible, expensive and a waste of time.
I’ve done Wesley weight loss program. It was good initially but I plateaued and gained more weight loosing momentum. Add stress and I was right back where I was. I tried SlimFit - it was great, and I liked the diet but enter stress.
Stress plays a big part in my weight loss success.
I’ve had significant loss. I lost my grandmother, then my dog, my son was diagnosed with special needs, my mother was diagnosed with cancer, I build a block of units and then my dad died. All within six months. The wheels fell off.
I am an emotional eater.
it was interesting on the first day. I want hungry but I was looking for food for the heck of it.
I didn’t really sleep. I love my sleep. I would say I had maybe 2 hours total. I’m going to use a sleep app to monitor this. The insomnia scares me a little.
but I will take my second tablet now and Persist as I’m really counting on this working. I want to feel my self again. I’m starting to have associated issues with obesity. Plantar fasciitis, borderline Diabetes and I’m very unhappy with how I look. I can’t get past it.
wish me luck. I feel this is going to work. There may be a hurdle or two. I’m counting on it. Praying. I would love any encouragement especially around the insomnia. Tips ?
I thought I’d take the tablet one hour earlier and see if that helps with herbal tea for sleep at night and a dark room.

Hi LynM,

Thank you for sharing your story with us. Indeed, you passed through a lot of things and I must say, you are a very strong person after all!
IMO, emotional eating is the key here. But don't worry, almost all of us were there and you CAN get out of it! ;)

You may have insomnia during the first weeks on Duromine. It's absolutely fine. I had the same problem too.
Herbal tea and the dark room can do wonders. I also enjoyed relaxing music and sleep stories from Calm.com :innocent:

I wish you a very successful weight loss journey :heart:
BTW, how do you feel today?

I’m on day two of duromine. Last night I hardly slept and have dry mouth so I’m drinking a lot more water. Im hoping my
Body gets used to duromine because I need my sleep. I have BLACKMORES SLEEP SOUND FORMULA tablets I used to take ages ago when I was stressed at work and couldn’t sleep. Am I okay to take those to help me get some sleep? And if I experience headaches am I okay to take Panadol? I had a huge headache on day one in the afternoon after a huge bush walk so wasn’t sure if it was a mix of duromine, dehydration and walking. Day two no issues and already experiencing no hunger! Woo

Water is the key. Please, try to drink at least 2 liters per day (3 liters is even better ;)).
If you feel ok on the second day, it means your body got used to the Duromine action. Stay active, drink water and try to eat 4-5 small portions of meals every single day. Your body will be happy:heart:

I’ve been drinking a lot more water than I normally ever would always so thirsty but definitely trying to get to the 2L goal! It’s probably taken 5 days to get my sleeping back which is nice my binge eating has stopped (got so bad during lockdown) I’m eating less especially portion wise but probably only eating 2 meals a day..

thanks for your reply and for the tips helps alot!!
