Dear Anonymous
Duromine can cause side-effects which may include high blood pressure, nervous system effects including psychotic reactions, heart symptoms including palpitations, skin rashes, digestive tract disturbances, problems with urination, swelling of the face, blurred vision and in some cases loss of libido or impotence. However if you do not experience any of these side-effects then you can use the pills together with an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 min a day.

What Nono. You think I have a computer and don' t research things first. Of course I google it, there are controversial comments hence why am waiting for the good Diet Doc to respond, still waiting .... quite frankly an intelligent person can see what the side effects are and decide to come off if they have side effects ..... I' ve spent 3 days researching ...
