So have been taking Panbesy (15mg) on and off for 3 months last year. Went to a different doctor this time and he prescribed Duromine (15mg) . I understand both drugs have the same amount of Phentermine- it’s just one is slow releasing .

now here the question...when I was on Panbesy I had ZERO side effects . Started on Duromine and first 2 days - has dizzyness, visual disturbance and most worrying a racing heartbeat at rest - which scared the daylights out of me. I’ve stopped taking it now , cos I’m scared the side effects will return.

has anyone else tried both tablets and had no side effects with one but lots with the other ?

I've tried both and found it slightly harder to sleep on duromine. Other than that, no real difference for me.

Have you heard of the nocebo effect? It's like the placebo effect but in reverse. Your body was expecting Duromine to be different to Panbesy so you are more likely to notice side effects.
