I feel that duromine is more likely to have caused the problem as stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting and dizziness are common side effects of duromine. A cigarette can cause the same if you had been abstinent for long and your body was not used to nicotine. Since you have been smoking for some time, I do not feel one cigarette could have done it. I also agree with your doctor that smoking when on duromine does not make much of a difference, but indeed smoking is bad for you.

Hope this helps. Best wishes.
