Hi LynM,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.
Water is the key. Please, try to drink at least 2 liters per day (3 liters is even better ).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
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..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
How are you feeling now you’re 2 weeks in? Hopefully your sleeping has improved. I’m on day 4 now, so happy to see others started around the same time as me. Excited to follow your progress!Hello, new here, I just started duromine yesterday. This is day two. Day one I experienced a bad headache. I wasn’t sure if the headache was from a 2hr bush walk I did which didn’t help as I’m trying to improve fitness or from my body adjusting to the medication. Once I got home I didn’t move off the lounge all afternoon due to the headache and feeling nauseous as I had only eaten Cereal for breakfast due to not being hungry once I got home. Went to bed at 7:30pm and I swear I was up all night. May of had little micro sleeps here but felt was awake most of the night I noticed a dry mouth but nothing concerning only that I noticed it. I didn’t think I’d experience the sleeping issue on the first night. So I hope it won’t last got a long way to go.
