I lost 30 kgs low carb 4 years ago without medication but I don't have the same drive this time and my weight is at a stall. I'm using the duromine with the low carb to kick start the weight loss again. I lost 8 kilos in 7 weeks low carb but it's not enough.

Yup tell me about it... I love food to.. :weary_face: then I look at myself in the mirror and hate me.. I also find that exercise for at least 30 mins helps. Little...Lol.. I tend to gain weight very quickly... And docs dint seem to understanding that.. they think I am joking when I say I gain weight within week...

I forced myself to drink a low carb shake today, my mind isn't hungry but my stomach is complaining. I gain it quickly too, I'm avoiding the gym for a few days until my crazy mind settles. I just don't have the mental motivation.

I think I eat coz I get bored...Lol... sounds stupid I know. Yah my stomach complains to. And I reach and eat. Eg today I had duromine in morning. Than at work my stomach started rummbling. So I had a piece bread with peanuts butter (Mmm favorite)' than there a cake going round in office. Had a slice. Than had 4 beans in cann with tuna. Than in afternoon stuffed my face with lindt chocolate... So yeah there goes my controlling of weight. I feel yukk.. I feel that's it.. My body will be double sizes morrow..

Hi All, So I take medication for anxiety and tried duromine (on the highest dose) about 4 months ago but it made me have massive panic attacks and feel terrible all the time so I had to stop :( Has anyone else experienced this? If so do you think a lower dose would work better?

I'm halfway through my first month on 15mg. Little side effects, just take tab early and drink lots.

Dr can answer the question for me. As for ME duromine made me mellow out and feel better. No panic attacks. :) Though I didn't mix meds. Hope it works out for ya

If you never had panic attacks before, the 40 mg dose can provoke these.
I think it's really a good idea to try 15 mg or 30 mg and see how it goes.

P.S. Don't forget that water is your best friend;) Try to drink 3 liters of water a day while on Duromine.
