How safe is taking duromin ?

I am on 100mg of seroqel and 100mg of pristiq. I have tried the 15mg of duromin whilst on my two regular medications. I had no bad side effects at all. My appetite was completely suppressed, I had very little to eat yet I didn't even lose one kilo. I know everyone has different results but my question was, could my regular medication some how be interfering with the ability to actually drop the weight.

I now have another duromin prescription but for 30mg.

Any theories you may have are much appreciated.

Thank you.

Thank for asking to HCM
I appreciate your concern, if you are raking these medicine for reducing the weight then these wont give you much satisfactory result even if you get such result then this would be partial one with the time you would again put on a weight, the better way to reduce the weight is regular exercise low calorie diet, yoga, and low stress level of course these give excellent result, try this, hope this information helps you, have good day.
