"I started Lomaira (phentermine) on 8/13/20. I'm 5'10 and my weight was at an all-time high of 218 when I started. My doctor had me start with a half dose (4mg) and half dose of Topiramate (generic Topamax -12.5mg) for two weeks. Then I will move to a full dose of each for the rest of the prescription. I have been drinking a gallon of water a day, eating a low-calorie diet, and doing light exercise daily. My appetite is controlled, my energy is up, and my system is cleansed. I have lost 10 lbs in one week. I do need to take it earlier in the morning because it's hard to fall asleep. But I'm looking forward to feeling like myself again. Best of luck to all of you!"

"I'm 44 and have gradually put on weight over these past five years - 50 lbs to be exact :( I currently weigh 177 and although I've done everything to try and lose my weight, truly, since turning 40 it has been nearly impossible and the weight just keeps coming on. I'll keep you updated on my journey but I am excited to try this as my last resort along with exercise and low-calorie foods."

"Lomaira has been a total improvement for me! Seriously, I've struggled with my weight forever, but this stuff has really helped me get a handle on my appetite. It's not like it's some magic fix, but it's definitely made it easier to stick to healthier eating habits. What's cool is that it comes in a lower dosage, so I can adjust it based on how hungry I'm feeling throughout the day. That's been awesome for keeping my cravings in check without feeling all weird and jittery. Of course, it's not a miracle pill. You still gotta put in the work with diet and exercise. Overall, Lomaira hasn't totally transformed my life, but it's definitely been a big help on my weight loss journey. I only had to pay about $22 per month without insurance coverage through goodrx."

"I heard about this from my doctor because I had asked about Ozempic and Wegovy to see if I was a candidate. She mentioned that those drugs are typically used for diabetes but they saw that patients were also losing weight and started using it off-label. She recommended I try a drug called Lomaira that's a low dose and isn't as complicated as a diabetes injection. I didn't realize those products were injections. She also mentioned the side effects can be bad and each injection lasts for a whole week. I can't imagine having stomach problems for an entire week without being able to stop. I've been on Lomaira for 8 weeks and lost 30 lbs. I've lost about 25% of my excess body weight. The side effects were mild to non-existent. I was thirsty for the first week but I did not have any other issues. I take Lomaira 2x a day before breakfast and lunch. I have not had any sleep issues. If I feel like eating on the weekends, I skip a dose and everything is fine. Good luck"

"I'm 39 years old and I have been having issues with trying to lose weight. When I first started this medication, I felt strange, but that was because I needed to eat before I take the medication. I started out a month ago (01/14/24) weighing 265 lbs. I am now 249 lbs (02/14/24). I have lost 16 pounds in a month and a half. I will say, I am going to continue taking this medication and working out at the same time to reach my goal. In order to see results that fast, you have to workout, cut out snacking, drink water (at least 5 bottles of water per day), and most importantly, do not eat after 8-8:30 p.m. Very important. I rate this medication a 10 out of 10. My goal is 180, 69 lbs to go."

"I've tried almost every diet, weight loss pill, and home remedy on the market. Nothing has really worked since I've turned 40. After my physical the doctor started me on Lomaira and I lost 10 pounds the first month without even exercising! Now I'm in month 2, exercising 4 times a week, and I feel better than I have in a long time. I've lost another 6 pounds in 8 weeks for a total of 16. It's really been my saving grace for eating less junk food & making good choices, especially at night! I'm determined to be Fabulous and Fit at 40 and I think I've finally found something to help me get there.:)"

"I do have ADD and this is a low grade amphetamine, so for someone who doesn’t have ADD these may work. I am not sure why my doctor chose to put me on these as they do the complete opposite for me since I do have add they stabilize me rather than stimulate. The side effects include insomnia, high BP, lower appetite and boost energy. I am not a person who naps, I can run on 5 hours of sleep, and these made me SO TIRED after taking them. They didn’t give me high BP, they didn’t cause insomnia, they didn’t give me energy, and they did not lower my appetite. They did give me brain fog. You’re apparently supposed to lose 2lbs per week on these pills, my doctor had me on one 8mg tablet, then wanted to bump it up to one and a half, I did not continue the meds because even after a month, change in diet, and consistent working out and walking, they still did nothing for me. I started these at 226 and have actually been fluctuating between 237-230 since taking them. I do not recommend."

"I started this medication 10 days ago. I’ve lost 5 lbs. I’ll weigh myself again in another 10 days. I have had virtually no side effects- just more energy, which is a good thing because I have a chronic illness that causes fatigue. But no heart palps or dry mouth! I was 191 lbs on 8/22/18 and now on 9/2 I am 186 lbs. honestly, it just makes me forget about hunger."

"I haven't had much success with my weight loss goals over the past few years, so when my doctor recommended a new treatment, I didn't get my hopes up. I've been pleasantly surprised though! Two months in and I've lost over 20 pounds. At this rate I should be able to meet all my goals!"

"I tried Adipex in years past (pre-menopause) and always lost 30 pounds in 12 weeks. Sleep was always disrupted with the extended-release 37.5mg. Menopause came at 53 yo along with excess weight gain. I didn't want to take the Wegovey - not enough info on long-term side effects. I saw Lomaira 8mg online and discussed it with my doctor. I had been doing Intermittent Fasting for the last 5 years (16:8) (noon-8 pm eating window) but maintained weight with no loss. I chose to go on Lomaira as a way to curb my appetite to extend my fast to One Meal A Day (OMAD). Monday through Friday, I skip lunch (easier to do when partner is at work) and just have an appetizer, dinner, and sometimes dessert from 6 pm to 8 pm. So, I fast for 22 hours and then eat within a 2-hour window. On Saturdays and Sundays, I go back to my 16:8 regime of fasting, eating lunch and dinner. I'm only 2 weeks into this program - have no side effects, no hunger - and feel lighter with more energy. This is my strategy for me. Take care!"

"My doctor started me on lomaira about 6 weeks ago. I told her that I was sensitive to medication but she said I should try this low dose once a day and see if it helps. So far so good! I haven't increased the dose and it is costing me about $0.30 a day. I've lost about 12 lbs so far and I don't really have noticeable side effects."

"Hi! I’m in my late 30s and I’m a woman living in Dallas Texas. I was always skinny when I was young. I was a cheerleader and in the marching band so I never worried about what I ate. Fast forward 15 years and I had gained lots of weight and was close to obese. Both sides of my family suffer from obesity and I had bad sleep apnea. My doctor said if I lost weight it would help withit. Fast forward 6 months after starting Lomaira, I’ve lost 50 lbs and my sleep apnea has gotten much better. I’ve read some reviews on here that Lomaira didn’t give them energy. I find that odd because it gave me energy and minimized my appetite. I’ve tried the higher strengths of phentermine and it gave me so much energy, but I had bad side effects. I’m glad there’s a low dose and maybe it can help some of you."

"I have always had to watch what I eat all my life, just looking at food I gained weight. I think I gave up at age 40 and just decided I’d always be heavy. This year was different. In June I weighed in at my annual rate physical at 215, my highest weight ever. I was referred to weight loss management. Started with 8 mg of Lomaira in morning with Topamax at bedtime. It really helps with hunger and cravings. Allows me to stay with my diet and not think about food all the time. Hunger pains used to be just that, painful. Not anymore with Lomaira. Now down to 178 after 16 weeks and I plan to keep losing more. My goal is 150. I couldn’t do this diet without the help of Lomaira. No side effects for me."

"I was able to get my Lomaira from Amazon Pharmacy through the Lomaira.com website. I have about 20 lbs of vanity fat that I want to lose. I only take one 8mg tablet, split in two and take half mid-morning and the remaining half mid-afternoon. My cravings are the worst from 6-9 pm. I have hereditary high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and I monitor BP twice a day as I am over 65. It has caused me some insomnia, and I try to do the best I can to get the necessary rest I need. NO stomach, constipation because the dose is so low. I cannot afford semaglutide shots, so this is my solution. I have lost 3 lbs this initial week and keep to a 900 cal food intake. Some exercise. This method to lose the weight has been a God-send for me.... I do have more energy but nothing that gives me an uncomfortable, shaky feeling. A higher dose can lead to health complications. Use the smaller dose and restrict calories."

"This is the low dose (8mg) Phentermine that is theoretically designed to be taken up to three times per day. Years ago I took the full strength 37.5 mg Phentermine and felt like I was going to die and couldn’t sleep. This low dose for me is totally different. I still feel a little “wired” but my blood pressure and heart rate are normal, and if I don’t take it too late I can sleep ok (although I have honestly have sleep problems anyway so I can’t evaluate that well). This dosage is way lower so you will have to be more careful with what you eat, you will have to take it at least twice per day (maybe three if it doesn’t bother your sleep and you have a lot of weight to lose). I really am glad doctors discovered that lower dose Phentermine works pretty well, because I just couldn’t tolerate the side effects of the higher dose but this lower dose is doable. Drink lots of water and do NOT drink caffeine or take other stimulants on this!"

"To start, Lomaira is a dream drug. I've always struggled with weight-loss. My body unnaturally retains weight due to my PCOS diagnosis and genetic disposition. I also just enjoy food which doesn't help! I gained weight from being on birth control and I couldn't get rid of it. Nothing I did in my exercise routine or diet could help. My doctor prescribed me 15mg phentermine. I hated the feeling, I found myself never eating which was great - but I would get very cranky and crash after it wore off. Then my doctor suggested Lomaira that has an 8mg dose and could be controlled a lot more and broken into 4mg. I fell in love. It goes perfect with my routine and it's the perfect amount of strength and I don't crash when it wears off!"

"I've been taking Lomaira for about 6 months, off and on. I took one pill a day for 2 months and quickly lost 15 lbs, even tho I prescribed to take 3x/day. It helped me to eat less when I did eat and not eat as often. Once I got in the habit of eating smaller portions, I would stop for a couple weeks. But my appetite always increased. I don't take it much anymore as I'm trying to use it as a tool and not as a habit. I've managed to lose 6 lbs more doing this. I started at 189lb and now 168lb, and I'm 5'1", 33 years old, no kids. My job is active but my off days I spent eating a lot. I've recommended this to several people, and so yes I would recommend."

"I was able to get Lomaira shipped directly to my home with my doctor's prescription which was convenient. I think the mail order pharmacy was running a promotion because I got it pretty cheap. So far so good. I went from half a tablet to 2 tablets a day. It is perfect for me. I don't know how anyone took generic Phentermine. 37.5 mg seems insane to me. I've been sleeping perfect now that it's been about a month. I lost about 12 lbs. A little less than halfway to my goal. Before Lomaira, I was working out and trying to eat well but for some reason I wasn't losing any weight."
