Will duromine medicine help in weight loss?

Hi I am addicted to panadeine extra. I take on average 20×15mg codeine+500mg paracetamol per day. I have recently been prescribed duromine 30mg to help with wieght loss. My question is will the duromine still b effective as the first 4 days I could tell it was working as I was not hungry at all. Now it seems my appetite has come back and im finding it is not working as well as it was. Thanks

Hello
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Phenetermine is a most potent anti obesity drug and it acts over brain and helps to depress hunger center in brain , so that person don't feel hunger .
As you are taking codeine + paracetamol ,as codeine depress brain center so may interaction between these two drugs .
So consult your treating doctor and get his opinion regarding this .
Good luck.
