yeah Ellen thats the same with me, although i have only been on it for 3 days (30 mg) so far i have had very little side effects, i'm still hungry and have no energy at all, i have no problems sleeping ( up to 12 hrs a night ) and then have little energy during the day. isnt it supose to give me more enery and not as hungry ? i'm worried it may not work for me as my sister has also been on it and had noticeable side effects, much more energy and was hardly hungry- currently she has lost 10 - 12 kg in 2 months, i'm worried it isnt working for me ?

I have been reading about duromine and other peoples reactions about excessive weight loss and not eating. Ive been on duromine for two weeks. I have found around midday I feel as Im starving and get hunger pains and hunger shakes. I eat small healty meals 3 x day. As well as fruit for morning tea. As far as side effects I feel completely normal, apart from occassional sweating and a dry mouth in the afternoon. I have lost about 2kg in this time. Sleeping is not a problem. . Is this normal?
