hello
welcome to health care magic
duromine is appetite suppressant medicine.
if u take this medicine u wont feel hungry.n if ur lanning to concieve u should not take this medicine.
once go for thyriod profile test done and ultasound of pelvis done to know exact cause of not concieving and gaining weight.
good luck consult endocrinologist and gynaecologist with ur reports.
homeopathy is also choice of treatment without side effects.

Hi
Welcome to HeathcareMagic.

Duromine is used in treatment of pregnancy by suppressing appetite . There are no specific studies to confirm the ill effects of duromine on conception and baby growth.However it is advisable to lose weight and plan for conception.
Please adapt other methods too , like , good exercise like Jogging , low fat diet , green tea before meals .This helps in losing weight soon.

If more information is needed , feel free to mail me.

Take care.
