Hey guys I hope I feel better soon otherwise I stop this.I started yesterday,dry mouth a little dizzy.Today it's worse i have a splitting headache i don't know if it's safe to take painkillers i am scared it may interact badly with duromine.My neck is stiff also,probably because of the headache.I just want today to end.

Some tea contain caffeine although not as much as coffee. Although I did not have any side effects from coffee some people can not take caffeine while on Duromine as it is a stimulant as well. Try a herbal tea. And just give your body time to get used to the D, it takes a while. And in the end it is really worthwhile. Keep strong;);)

Nina, I found I would forget to eat, so I've been setting my alarm on my phone to go off at the right times throughout the day to remind me to eat :) If I really don't feel hungry, I'll still have some fruit or raw veg :) Just need to keep eating otherwise when you come off and start eating, your body won't be used to it :)

Thanks Carina i think i will do that, my system is used to it now.I don't want to end up with an eating disorder because I have realised that food makes me fat.So the fact that I don't get appetite appeals to me

You must really try to eat small healthy meals, especially as you say you are anemic. If you do not eat your body will go into "starving mode"and every thing you eat will then be stored as fat.

You can start with simple things like fresh fruit, a salad with say some tuna or boiled eggs and yogurt. Don't make it too difficult on yourself, if you feel like trying new recipes it is just great, but otherwise just start with the simple basics;)

No, I don''t think you need to worry about that. It's not something like antibiotics that you have to complete the course!
Just go ahead as usual tomorrow. The Duromine is already in your system. A lot of people start skipping a day here and there once they are used to it. And DO NOT take a double dose:eek:
