Hey, all! I want some advice please , I'm not the biggest person, but I have PCOS, and my weight just does not shift. I eat healthily and go to the gym 5-7 times a week plus work as a hairdresser so not much movement at work. I'm just wondering if any doctors would prescribe Duromine to me because my PCOS issues are worse the bigger I am and better the smaller I am, and I've been in and out of hospital all year because of my issues. I asked one doctor, and he said no because he's against medication. In general, he likes natural remedies, but is there a chance other doctors will prescribe it to me, or am I wasting my time. Thanks in advance (delete if not allowed)

Hi Marika,

Your current lifestyle is quite healthy, and you say that your weight is not too big.
Usually, doctors prescribe Duromine to patients, who have BMI 30 or higher. :no_mouth:

@Marika have you contacted jean hailes woman's health? They have specialists in Melb that have a good knowledge and interest in Pcos! I saw an endocrinologist there a couple of weeks ago, bit expensive though. She was fantastic, I explained everything I have been doing (PT, gym, swimming, etc and healthy eating) yet the weight is not shifting. She recommended Duromine (my bmi is 43 though) and she also suggested 2 other meds. I'm starting with Duromine first though to see how I go!

I'm on the Mornington peninsula also, and my doctor and others in the area I know of will only prescribe it if your BMI is over 30 :expressionless:
