Thanks for writing to us.
Duromine is basically an appetite suppressant drug helping in weight loss. It is a prescription drug and correct dosing for a person can only be decided by the prescribing doctor. However usually 30 mg is given as a starting dose once daily.

Whatever symptoms you have mentioned ( nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, respiratory discomfort, dizziness) are basically side effects of the drug.
In such cases usually dose of the drug is reduced.
I would advise you to withhold the intake of drug immediately and consult your doctor on urgent basis.
Hope that answers your query. Take care.

I have been taking Phentermine, (regulated by a physician), to lose weight. I drink about a gallon of water a day. I eat a lot of peanuts & fruits. The problem I have is I have to Urinate about every hour throughout the day, & usually wake up at least twice in the night to pee. Should I cut down on something?

Hello, i am 18 years old and about 2 years ago i got out on birth control and was told i would gain ZERO pounds. little did i know that was a big fat lie! after i was put on the nexplanon implant, i started to rapidly gain weight. i talked to some friends and they got it, and had the same problem. and taking the weight off is nearly impossible. i am 5 7 & weighed 156, and currently stay in between the 180 s and 90 s, which is very bad. i want to go to my doctor about Phentermine, but do not know how to approach them with the issue. and dont know the cost, if thats an issue for me. I plan to get the implant taken out soon so the weight gain hopefully stops, and i just need help and more info! please help! :)
