Weight loss pills
In November last year I was diagnosed diabetes. I weighed a whopping 96.1kg's in the beginning of Jan 2013. The doc put me on Duramine 30mg for 8 months. I am currently on month number 3. I now weigh 80.9kg's. Now my weight is standing a bit still. Has anyone else used Duromine? What are the long term effects. 8 months is a long time, but the doc says its safe. My goal weight is 65kg's.

Please give your opinions on losing weight with medical assistance. I am starting to add exercise to my routine on Monday, need to help my weight along to my goal. The Duromine has changed my eating habits and patterns that I am fairly confident that I will be able to keep the routine I am in now up, long after I am finished with the Duromine.
