Well, It Has Been Three Months

Three months this Friday, anyway :)

I thought I may share my experience as I've been intrigued reading what others have been through.

I started Duromine 30mg three months ago. I had a fair amount of weight to lose and still some to go until I am where I want to be.

When I first took Duromine - I felt awesome. I had read some horror stories about anger, frustration, hair loss, lack of concentration. While some of these apply to me, overall it was good. I had some odd sensations like my hands tingling and the strong heart beat, but that passed in a couple of days.

The first week had me not eating at all. It was strange in that not only was I not hungry, I was not particularly interested in eating at all. Worse still, I didn't feel thirsty so I was not really drinking.

That didn't last, into the second week I was starting to have a bit of toast and some fruit for lunch. I was still having a beer with dinner at this stage.

First two weeks, 8kg down

The rest of that month slowed down a bit. All the energy I had in the first two weeks was gone. I was still sleeping ok but I was not bursting with it as I was.

First month, 12kg down.

The second month eased things up a little. Things were pretty normal. I had noticed the scales didn't move like they were. I stopped my beer with dinner and things kept on going. At this stage I was noticing some hair was falling out. Not too much but a couple of strands here and there. The dry mouth set in and I started to grind my teeth.

Second month, 20kg down.

The third month was the worst for symptoms. Still losing some hair (not much) and the dry mouth is pretty constant. I eat three meals a day now, making better choices then I was and drinking a lot of water. I am almost looking forward to taking a break from the drug.

But, for the punch line I am down 25kg. I started at 125kg and 181cm and have lost the 25kg over three months so I'm at an even 100kg with a 102cm waist.

Even with side effects of the drug, I think its great. Dropping 25kg has been life changing. I hope others have the same success I have had.
