I had been taking duromine for 3 weeks. The first day I took the pill at 5 am and was awakeand didn't have much sleep the second night sleeper like a baby. I found I would have to remember to eat and when I did I didn't feel like the usual fatty oily take outs. I Stuart d eating healthier and exercising for 30 minutes on a exercise bike. I had lost a total of 7.8 kg I have been off it for 3 weeks without exercse or healthy eating and have gained only 2 kg . I have one more week dose left and will need to go see the doc. Start weight 105 kg goal weight is 70 kg.
