Duromine helps to lose weight by causing appetite suppression. Along with this beneficial effect, Duromine may cause unwanted side effects, although not in every obese patient.
Theoretically, Duromine may cause side effects in any person. Their appearance and severity depend on the body’s individual characteristics. However, several side effects occur more often than others do.
A list of the most common Duromine side effects includes:
- skin rash;
- dry mouth.
To get an accurate picture of side effects, one needs to know about those that occur rarely.
Such reactions of the body to Duromine can be:
- shortness of breath after physical activity;
- increased blood pressure.
Examples of very rare side effects are – myocardial infarction, convulsions, ischemic stroke, and tachycardia or chest pain. See the leaflet to familiarize yourself with a full list of adverse reactions have been identified during clinical trials, as well as after the start of sales of Duromine capsules.
Duromine side effects usually:
- are mild or moderate and do not cause discomfort;
- appear in the first week of overweight or obesity treatment;
- gradually decrease and disappear with repeated administration.
Some obese people seem to assume that Duromine side effects are merely the price they have to pay the possibility to use this weight loss drug. It is wrong to think so. No one should have to put up with adverse reactions.
Several strategies that are particularly effective for controlling side effects.
Firstly, it is necessary to follow the recommendations for use. To get the most benefit from obesity treatment and minimize the risks of side effects, appetite suppressant Duromine should be used at the same time (in the morning). When doses are used regularly, the body gets used to their action and side effects do not occur.
Secondly, side effects can be a sign that a too high dose of this medication is used. Patients who get moderate or severe side effects should use lower doses. The minimum effective dose is 15 mg of Duromine per day.
Thirdly, Duromine should not be used with any other medications without first consulting your doctor. Duromine in combination with certain medicines (e.g., antidepressants), as well as alcohol may cause serious side effects.
Fourthly, intake of Duromine before, with or after a meal helps to reduce intensity of certain gastrointestinal side effects. To facilitate dryness in the mouth, a candy or chewing sugar-free gum can be used.
- In the evaluation of Duromine side effects, the risk-benefit profile should be taken into account. Even if side effects occur, the health benefit can be very high.
Duromine helps to reduce weight by 5-10% of the original one in just 3 months. Thus, if side effects do not cause much discomfort, continue to use Duromine capsules every day and steadily lose weight. The dose should be reduced if side effects become moderate or severe.
