Hi!
I'm about to begin taking duromine 30mg as of tomorrow. (I've filled the script already).

I guess I'm anxious as I've been on Lexapro for last few years. And feel apprehensive of taking the Duromine.

Was anyone else in same boat?

Hi, Gooba
Welcome and don't be afraid, these pills helped a lot of people. But you'll never know how exactly it'll work for you. Just make sure you don't mix the pills with other diet supplements and antidepressants. BTW why 30mg? The smallest dose is 15mg and it's better to start with it to avoid side effects. Besides, you can always increase the dose afterwards.

Hi Kate, thank you for taking the time to respond.
My doctor told me that at my weight 30mg is the dose I should be on. So as per her instruction and script that's what I'm on.
I started them today. Experiencing dry mouth - so drinking lot's of water. Bit wired too. But I feel good otherwise. I'm excited to see progress at the end of week when I see my GP.

Hi Gooba,
All the best in your journey! I hope the side effects have subsided for you now and you are feeling great. I was also started on 30mg by my Dr due to my BMI putting me in the Obese range. The side effects i found subsided after around 3 days and i feel no different on them now and im on day 12. :)

Hi BeDreamy - thanks for your response. Dry mouth is the obvious side effect. Otherwise it's day 4 today and I feel good. Still wired - but it's a positive feeling. I feel in control. :)
It's reassuring to speak with ppl in similar situation. So thank you.
