SallyCooper said:im at the end of my 3rd week, I go to bed at around 11pm, some nights a little later and im up at 7-8am, the first couple of days I was up a bit earlier but after the first week the huge energy kick had stopped, i take my tablet the minute I get up so anywhere from 6am-8am, im on 40mg tablets and i dont eat when I take my tablet, I usually down a glass of water followed by a coffee.
DONT GIVE UP
it gets better after the first couple of days, try and go with it, give it at least a week, you have spent alot of money to get the tablets, thats beside the point really.
Im assuming you asked the doctor for the duromine so you want to lose weight, keep going, like you said earlier, your still making bad food choices but in smaller amounts, I eat either a weetbix or a piece of toast with banana on it for breakfast, a fruit salad during the day at work and whatever it is im cooking for tea, not a very big serve
what im doing is asking myself before I put anything to mouth, do I really need this......so far in 3 weeks the only bad stuff ive had is 3 favourites chocolates and yesterday a small piece of my step daughters birthday cake
Keep writing on here and we will keep talking to you and get you through the first week
again DONT GIVE UP
I'm at the end of my 4th week. Ever since I started taking duromine I haven't had any problem sleeping, im on 30mg.
I usually take my tablet around 9am, I work afternoon shift so I dont get home until around 11pm but once I get home I fall asleep straight away. Thinking about seeing if i can go up to 40mg, the first 3 days I was on duromine I had so much energy but it didn't take too long for that to pass.
I didn't eat any bad food for the first 3 weeks and last week I decided to get Mcdonalds and I absolutely hated it, good to know that I wont be going back there anytime soon
I still get hungry quite a bit but I usually drink some water and the hungry feeling goes away.
I have pretty much been living off fruit since I started taking duromine, all i had to eat yesterday was 2 apples, 2 oranges and 1 banana. I can't bring myself to eat fatty food anymore!
I have now lost 12.8kg, I was hoping to get to 15kg in 4 weeks but I dont think that is going to happen lol
Good luck with your weight loss journey, can't wait to read about your results.
Just remember stay strong, hopefully you can get back into a normal sleep pattern soon.
But also remember that everyone on here will be supporting you
Traveller29 said:My journey has ended as I ended up collapsing Sunday night (day 4) and went to hospital. I had extremely high blood pressure,hallucinations and vomitting which the doctor said were related completely to the duromine as he had seen it many times over- once I was conscious enough to tell them what medication I was taking (only the duromine).
A bit dissapointed that my weight loss journey with duromine has ended but I will persevere with alternative ways which might be harder and take longer but nonetheless I will be alive.
I'm sorry I didn't see your latest post, but more so I am happy for you even more! Frankly speaking you have now excellent results that few people have! Good job!Bancs said:Ok i caved and have been weighing in =) Sooo happy with results so far. Headaches have disappeared and staying well hydrated is helping with the dry mouth feeling. I am thankfull that i am not have sleep issues but when i am awake...i am awake. As soon as i wake up it like.."what can i start doing". The extra energy is fantastic. I have been told though, to not try and push myself so i don't have any "crashes". Now to the exciting part.
My weigh ins have been:
Fri 4th (SW) - 112.5kg
Sat 5th (Started Duromine)
Mon 7th - 111.1kg
Wed 9th (today) - 109.7kg
so a total of 2.8 kgs lost so far with 2 days still to go for my first week. YAAAYYY!!!
Have also noticed a looser fit with my shorts in my waist and butt area (yeah) Happy it's coming off those areas first.
