Hey I'm Rosie
I'm 20yrs old currently weighing 88kg and 170cm tall. My doc gave me 40mg Duromine to take after I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and things just were not working for me in the weight loss department. I'm hoping to get down to 68kg, a total of 20kg loss.
So far it's been 1 day on the 40mg and I'm having only a dry mouth and feeling a bit spacey side effects, my appetite is somewhat suppressed but I'm not feeling energized really.
To be honest I'm hoping it will just remain feeling like this because I'm terrified of getting heart palpitation side effects etc since I'm prone to anxiety anyway.
I'd love to have someone to stay in contact with on a regular basis who is also going the Duromine journey :) If you're interested let me know.

Hello :)
Just curious as to what autoimmune disease you were diagnosed with?
I've been diagnosed with thyroid disease and taking duromine for the same reason

Hi Rosie,
I just finished my first week and would love a weight loss buddy (or buddies) :)

It's my third time on duromine, but I never stuck with it before, and now I'm the biggest I've ever been and I HATE it!! Seriously!! I'm a woman on a mission now!! But I need all the support I can get, and hopefully will be able to provide some too!!

Xx Beth

Hey! I've been diagnosed with sjogrens syndrome (Show-grins) took me ages to learn to say it haha. It's an inflammatory condition, but I found on Duromine some of my symptoms from this were relieved, my back wasn't as achy and I wasn't extremely tired just on a normal level.

Hey Beth!

I know the feeling! And I'd love to be your weight loss buddy! It's tough losing weight and we need all the support we can get and eventually we will be a healthier hotter version of ourselves, and for that I cannot wait!

feel free to add me on facebook if you have it and we can stay in touch on here :)

I find these pages also motivating and inspirational, and try to look at them daily or when I'm feeling crappy.

Oh I was hoping you had the same thing as me!! Lol. My immune system cells are attacking my thyroid, so my metabolism is slow hense making it as hard as possible to lose weight.
If you'd like to keep in touch let me know, would be interesting to see how someone else with an autoimmune disease goes on duromine! X

Mine does a similar thing but not hormonally, mine's inflammatory and inflames my intestines, stomach, joints etc so my metabolism also runs slow. Feel free to add me on facebook as well :) We can keep in touch and see how we go, hopefully we'll both see some big results! Also what dose are you on?

I started on the 15 mg and after a week went up to the 30!
How are you going with it so far?
I've only lost 2 kg in two weeks and am soo bummed and annoyed!!
I ate well before hand and wasn't losing weight but wasn't gaining so really thought duromine would help!:(

Hi, don't stress too much right now. My weight-loss started out slow, but 4 months on, I'm glad I stuck with it! (Have lost +/-15kg so far, and have dropped from size 20 to size 16 pants). Just stick with making better food-choices than you used to.

@ChelseaPearshape thanks for the advice! :)
I actually eat really well, I always have, but have just found out I'm not eating enough! Was having about 900 cals a day. So hopefully having 1200 calories a day will help

Are you following a specific eating plan?
Do you need to lose weight, eventhough you were eating too little?

I am diabetic, and I'm following the basic principles of banting/Tim Noakes diet.

I'm following the meal plan from the Michelle bridges 12 wbt!
I was having900 calories a day, little did I know your body needs 1200 a day and for a female following a diet should still be consuming 1200 a day! Then when I started on duromine I was literally only eating dinner because I just wasn't hungry

I googled Michelle Bridges to see what you are talking about. Nice idea, with support and all. I also used to eat only in the evenings. Since I started banting, I eat during the day as well.

Hi, Malik. Are you eating enough? You might feel tired becuase of insufficient amount of calories. You are a man so the numbers are little bit different than in women. 800-1000 kcal are definitely not enough for you(( Make it at least 1500. And exercises. Even cardio will add you some energy I promise.
