Hey guys, just wondering of any ones been prescribed if they’re only slightly overweight. I’m 165cm and weigh 72kg right now (have put on 6kg in the last 2 months). So my bmi is 26.4 but have seen that it can only be prescribed at 30+ :(

Hey @bananabowl-,
Usually, doctors prescribe Duromine if your BMI is 30 or greater. Duromine-friendly doctors may prescribe even if your BMI is 27. But again, it depends on your health conditions. If you are not overweight but your doctor insists on losing weight because of some potential or actual diseases, he may also prescribe it.
Did you ask your doctor for a prescription? Why do you want to lose weight, dear?

Thanks for the info! No I haven’t asked, will be seeing him tomorrow. I’m certain I have a binge eating disorder (will hopefully be properly diagnosed soon) and it’s caused a significant weight gain in a short period of time. Really affecting my mental health as I haven’t been this big in years

I see, dear... Please let me know if you get the prescription.
