Hi, Im from SA, i have been on duromine for about 2 and a half months and so far have lost about 8kgs, i have not been exercising or dieting, but i want to start so the duromine works faster. i have been getting dry mouth alot and sometimes i get cuts on my tongue, i went to the pharmacist and he said its because i need to drink more water. recently ive also noticed that if i DONT eat i feel really sick, like wanting to gag or throw up. is anyone else experiencing this?

Hi there fellow South African,

I started duromine last week (19/11/2012) and the dry mouth on the one hand sucks but on the other has motivated me to drink at lease 4 litres of water a day. I also tend to feel yukky when i don't eat so i've bought some trail mix and dried fruit and snack on this between meals. My doctor told me that it is important to not skip meals and to rather eat smaller meals throughout the day so that you don't mess up your metabolism. I know that is hard because you don't have an appetite and can easily go a day without eating anything and that is why I stock up on fruit and with Summer being here their is such a yummy variety at the market.

With regards to the gagging and nausea, I had that at the beginning but not so bad now although I have developed a few food aversions particularly meat in any form.

I hope that your journey gets easier and you achieve your weight loss goals.

R:)

Hi Michelle, it seems that insomnia is the main side effect in your case.. Well on my experience, I tried different things to get rid of it. Let's say books, it wasn't convenient to read in bed though..but I got electronic book. Believe me it makes you sleepy in 10 minutes! I've read somewhere that if you have sleep issues, you should change some rules: air your bedroom at least for 15 minutes before going to bed, soft&nice bedclothes (fancy print maybe?), try to drink a glass of warm milk before sleep, or turn on some calm music on timer. I know it may not remove your problem, but worth to try) ) Because it helped me personally.
