Hi, Duromine makes me sleepy too, not to mention more hungry. Have you found out why this is the case?

I've noticed feeling more tired and sleepy since starting Phen, too. I work nights, so my schedule is usually crazy, but after working all weekend, I came home today and slept for 12 hours straight. I feel better since waking up, so maybe I just needed to catch up on my sleep. I am still waiting on that "energetic" feeling everyone else tells me about. Hopefully it will come soon. I'm tired of feeling tired.

it could be from the energy it gives you in the beginning and you stay awake... your body could be trying to catch up on sleep

I'm sleepy too!
I just took my first dose today. I am SO tired I can't even get off the couch. I can't sleep though ?? My son woke me up early this morning AND I power walked 50 minutes this a.m. so maybe that's it, but I expected to have lots of energy, and that's not happened.
However, I am NOT hungry at all. You couldn't pay me to eat right now
But you are not alone, maybe this symptom will subside with time????

It is because everyone in different some are sleepy and like for me I am more alert and since I work at nights I take the last dose at 9 and I am very alert at nights. I believe that is at first when your body is getting used to a new thing, later on you will get used to it. Dont give up!

Today is day 5 on my phen. I get SO sleepy too. I get energy when I first take it in the morning but by midafternoon I am so drained. I can't eat anything though.. I feel the hunger pains in my stomich but I just can't eat. I only eat once a day, I know this is bad.. so Im going to start just forcing it down. Hopfully these bad side effects will go away soon.

Well, I was super hyped up for the first 3 days or so, then I crashed hard because of lack of sleep and too much energy.
Now things have leveled off and I am no longer hyper. I do get really tired at about 1:30pm. every day and if I can just close my eyes for about 30 minutes then I am good for the rest of the day and evening. I just need that quick energy booster.
Hope that helps.

The pills make me sleepy and tired. When I try to sleep I cant, and I cant eat eithier. I am eating approx 700 calories a day. I do not know why I am having this reaction. I asked my doctor and he said he has never heard of this problem.

You're so tired because your body has nothing to run off of from eating only one meal a day. Which slows down your metabolism......YOU have to eat at the very least 3 meals a day. I know some stuff tastes like crap and the thought of food probably makes you want to barf but you gotta do it. Trust me you won't be as sleepy.....

Once again.... YOU HAVE TO EAT. 700 calories is not enough. Your body needs atleast 1000 if not it goes into starvation mode and holds on to everything that you consume.
