Duromine is a drug that is used to reduce body weight in obese or overweight patients. As with any medication, there are usually some side effects that are associated with the product. Some of these side effects may be mild, serious and dangerous. Generally, when you take Duromine, most people will experience an increase in heart rate and also blood pressure. Some patients may also experience restlessness, insomnia and heart palpitations. On the more serious side, it is documented that Duromine can be addictive, because it is a pure and simple amphetamine. Its generic name is Phentermine.  There have been reports of 50% of patients having a physical and psychological dependence on the drug or psychological symptoms.

Duromine Short Term Side Effects

All drug medications have side effects and it is very common to experience these effects when taking Duromine. The typical side effects that people encounter, such as feeling more awake, are usually short term and will go away after using the drug for a while, or once you stop taking it.

Whilst Duramine will increase weight loss by reducing appetite and increasing metabolism, it has been shown that upon stopping the medication appetite comes back with a vengance and the metabolic rate falls leading to tiredness and depression.

As phentermine can only be used for a limited amount of time, many of those prescribed it may find that they experience side effects following cessation of the medication. Trying to manage your weight without the help of phentermine while you are also experiencing withdrawal symptoms can make this a very difficult period for those who have recently stopped taking phentermine. The main symptoms after ceasing the medication are:  Weight Gain and increased appetite. Fatigue. Insomnia. Low Mood.

The rapid weight loss seen with Duromine means that the body is burning protein which means muscle tissue loss.  This will lead to a lower metabolic rate because muscle burns a lot of calories.  Thus even if people stick to a low calorie diet they find they cannot lose further weight because their metabolic rate has fallen.

Overall, the benefits are outweighed by the longer term side effects and weight loss followed by weight gain is known as the yo-yo effect which is overall harmful to general health.
