Hi @ sunnyday. Not sure what u mean about behaving like me; i dont drink alcohol. And i dont get cravings, or have a food problem. My diet and exercise was fine before duromine and has stayed the same since; im unable to shift weight for medical reasons. Lost 1kg after my first month taking 15mg, and 0.8kg on my second month taking 30mg. Im now on my third month of duromine, still taking 30mg. I only had about 10kg to lose so it doesnt work the way it does with people who have more to lose.I have been behaving the same as lovecat,I find even after a glass of wine,I have cravings Or hungrry.I am doing my best to stay off it.End of week 2 lost 4.3kg so far,how much have u lost lovecat?
Oh, well then I understand why it is so important for you! And I love a good wine too, so have a great time!Thank you for everyone who responded. I do very much appreciate it.
Drinking alcohol whilst on Duromine was never an option for me, I was just wondering how long I have to not take it before drinking, so thank you... i'll skip it for 2 days prior.
I am definitely aware of the impact on my weight loss this will have, the alcohol and the food... however, I love a wine, and not having a drink is just not going to happen. I definitely can have a good time not drinking, but i really do enjoy a wine, and I want to celebrate with my husband. He only turns 40 once. Not just any old wine mind you, its a few hundred dollar bottle we bought in Italy when we went over just after the birth of our first child over 5 years ago. I work in a winery and he is a winemaker... so this dinner out is not complete without a good wine. I realise not everyone will understand though.
Thanks again for the advice about timing and making sure its out of system.
