As a matter of fact I have heard BOTH touted as a way to better health. Red wine for the tanin to control cholesterol, beer as a natural diuretic for bladder issues and Panadol to relieve fever.

But my point still stands. What you fail to consider is mental health. And this is not just, "I want to be skinny for my wedding" stuff either. As I already stated, if people do not control their weight they will hurt their health. Yet people who see no results will not continue on a healthy regime. If they can use Duromine safetly, under supervised care, and achieve visible results this has the positive effect of encouragement to continue exercising and healthy eating.

If you lose 0.5 kg per month it would take a year to achieve a modest result and the large majority of people will not stick to it. Were that not the case then everyone would be thin.

So while I continue to make my point again and again you have yet to make any point. You say you want to compare apples to apples but so far you haven't compared anything to anything.

You even admit that you occassionaly drink. Yet alcohol is a dangerous drug. Yes, but you are not touting it's use for a healthy lifestyle. But you are still using a dangerous drug and then condemning others because they wish to use one that you don't approve of and offering nothing in the way of proof.

Apparently your moderate use of a dangerous drug is fine yet it's not ok for others. And that's why you're a hippocrite.

Last I heard, alcohol wasn't so dangerous that it has to be prescribed by a physician. Sure it's addictive, so is sugar. You are still dangerous. Especially to young people, in particular, who don't have enough sense to see through your BS and done really need to lose weight anyway. Granted, if it were used under a supervised program it could possibly have some benefits (although the risks aren't worth it). There are, however, much better programs to lose weight fast that don't have near the inherent documented dangers that you have already conveniently point out. Proof? I don't need proof. You have already supplied it in your earlier posts. However, if you had bothered to read the threads contained in this forum you will see you are addressing a naive bunch who are asking others to buy for them because their doctors will not due to the abuse. These are not supervised and these are the ones you are prompting to continue on the path of destruction of their health, not the betterment. I may be a hypocrite in your eyes, but you are much, much worse, playing on the vanity of young people looking for a quick fix instead of doing things the right way. Now you are talking about weight "control". The only safe effective weight control is exercise and learning how to say NO. Drug dependencies are to be shunned. And no, I don't have any drug dependencies, not even alcohol. Unless you consider an average of 6 beers in 6 months a dependency. :roll:


Active ingredients will be listed on the back of the bottle in addition to loss of appetite, there are the following, other side effects. One drug used in weight loss pills is Dexfenfluramine (Adifex) has the possible side-effects of nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, mood disorder, a disorder called "reactive depression insomnia," as well as anxiety, headaches, constipation and dry mouth. The psychological conditions of this drug are extremely damaging and should be your primary concern. The drug Phentermine (also called Adipex, Duromine, Ionamin, or Panbesy as brand names) will potentially cause over-stimulation of the central nervous system, a condition referred to in the psychiatric community as "GREAT IDEA Syndrome," as well as heart disease. Specifically phentermine can cause heart palpitations, abnormal heart rhythms, respiratory depression, increased blood pressure, tremors and even induce a coma. The majority of people who use such drugs tend to use them excessively . . . this is extremely dangerous. You can make yourself crazy, literally, when you expose your body to these chemicals. Once in your bloodstream - especially when consistent - your brain can be forever altered by these drugs. Is it worth it? Is it worth landing yourself in a coma just so you can loose a few pounds without giving up fast food or having to start exercising regularly?

Where to begin.

First let's talk about how dangerous alcohol is. The Lancet, the most widely acknowledged medical journal in the world, just released a study (November 2010 issue) about the 20 most dangerous drugs based on the impact to society, to families and to the individual and the number 1, 2 and 3 in order are: Alcohol, Heroin and Crack. Maybe it should be by perscription only! However we, as a society, have deemed it acceptable and legal. And so is Durmine which doesn't even show up on the list.

However, you have decided to make giant assumptions about 1/ If people even suffer from a weight problem and 2/ that they are naive to it's dangers. Then you even go so far as to say that I encourage people to aquire Duromine through any means which is the exact OPPOSITE of what I wrote.

But what really stikes me as ironic is that you condemn these people as niave and uninformed and when I come along and provide both the negative and positive sides, information that in turn would allow them to make an informed decision based on my own research and personal experience, you call me dangerous and stupid.

Is that how you see contrary opinions?

You accuse me of playing on vanity. When did I do that? Was it when I said they need medical screening? Was it when I said they must desist and see their doctor should any serious side effects occur? Was it when I said they will need to go back after 1 month and be screened again? Was it when I mentioned they may suffer tight chest or difficulty breathing? Maybe it was when I said they must quit drinking, exercise and eat green vegatables and lean meat. I know, it's when I said don't make Duromine a lifestyle.

And to top it all off you have now started talking about drug dependencies like I support that or something or that I accused you of some kind of alcohol dependency. Where did that come from?!?!

My only point about you was that you consume a dangerous drug, but you use it in moderation and so there is practically no harm. Oddly, that is exactly my point too.

I do give you credit that you acknowledge the fact that there could be some possible benefits and I agree that there are different ways to achieve desired results that have less risk. But those do not apply universally and they certainly did not apply in my case either.

I do not maintain my current weight using anything but exercise and proper diet and I even fully explain that the real work begins with a change in lifestyle. If you think that is prompting them to continue on a path of destruction then perhaps you should reread my oringinal post.

It was when you say one should consider using it in the first place even though you already know how dangerous it is. That fact alone, to me smacks of an "I don't really care about others" attitude. The fact that you would even consider recommending something so dangerous, supervised or not, is where you go wrong and to me it's irresponsible. Had you been around 60 years ago, you would have probably been extolling the virtues of Thalidomide as well.

I'll leave it at that as the sooner I quit you will quit and then the thread will eventually disappear again into the bowels of the database. :-|

I have taken Duromine too. It took away my appetite and sleep. Yes, i did lose some weight. Who wouldn't if you don't eat or eat just a meal a day and not feel hungry for the rest of the day?

The thing is, you lose more than that. The colour of my cheeks turned pale too and i looked tired coz i felt tired!

Never take stuff that is unprescribed. Always go to a trained doctor or trusted slimming centre but do not treat it as your magic pill. Always complement with whatever you are doing - your lifestyle,diet,exercise routine etc or it will be a neverending cycle.

Re: Duromine: Explanation, Side effects and Results

I understand why you say that but weight has become a major health concern and that includes mental health. ..By using Duromine I was able to lower my weight to a more healthy range and by making a few adjustments to my lifestyle continue to stay in that range.

So use Duromine as a starting point to move towards better health. Be aware of side effects and don’t let your desire to lose weight cloud your judgment about whether to continue taking Duromine if you are experiencing nasty side effects. And if you don’t experience side effects then don’t let Duromine become a lifestyle unto itself. Use only as directed an under the supervision of your physician.

Good Luck. You can do it.


==============

I just wanted to ask you (or anyone out there for that matter), as I do too, agree that its a great starting point to get you on the right track of living a more healthier lifestyle--

Do you or should I, in this instance, trust buying these pills over the web (internet) which advertise how wonderful it is to buy online WITHOUT a Prescription?? Or is this a fake??

Last thing I want is buying this online, only to find I've got me a dud that DOES NOT work.

I realise how everyone keeps saying that you need to visit a Clinic to have a doctor prescribe it to you, but let me just say... I live in Canada...

And, in saying so, the doctors here aren't as concerned about being a bit overweight, a little overweight, or even really overweight UNLESS you're clear-as-day OBESE (in which case, I'm not) --But lets be honest to myself for a second... Compared to all my fellow Asians, I'm bloody Godzilla/ King Kong or even the Abominable Snowman!! (Oh how it pains me!)

Anyways, before I go off on a rant.....

Can anybody validate this or have any thoughts about purchasing this pill online, to avoid myself from being shut out and emotionally damaged by my Canadian doctors for not being JABBA THE HUT yet to be assisted!!!!!


Thanks everyone who have clearly being years ahead of me on this topic!! ROFL
