Reviews for Lomaira

For Weight Loss: “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 dr 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 Rx. 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!”

For Weight Loss: “I'm 44 and have gradually put on weight over these past five years - 50 lbs to be exact :( I currently weight 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.”

For Weight Loss: “I’ve been on this medication for 3 months and I’ve lost 15 lbs. this medication is a great for people who are struggling to lose weight and have tried everything. I plan on taking this medication until I hit my goal weight of 160lbs. I started the medication at 191lbs and now I am 176lbs. I have 16 lbs left to lose.”

For Weight Loss: “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.”

Tried Everything · Taken for 1 to 6 months · May 23, 2018

For Weight Loss: “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.:)”

For Obesity: “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!”

For Weight Loss: “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.”

Turning 50 · Taken for less than 1 month · January 26, 2021

For Weight Loss: “I started the combination of lomaira and topiramate on January 11 along with walking five miles a day, drinking water, cutting out sodas, drinking two green smoothies a day, cutting out fried foods on the week days. I am down 13 pounds I had one nightmare and do feel more moody than normal but my energy level is through the roof I take a bath every night to wind myself down to go asleep”

64 year old · Taken for 1 to 6 months · October 20, 2021

For Weight Loss: “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.”

For Obesity: “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.”

texshopper · Taken for 1 to 6 months · January 1, 2022

For Weight Loss: “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!”

Specialdelivery · Taken for 1 to 6 months · July 14, 2021

For Weight Loss: “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.”

TexasGal · Taken for 1 to 6 months · May 18, 2018

For Weight Loss: “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.”

Rooks mom · Taken for 1 to 6 months · February 8, 2018

For Weight Loss: “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.”

For Weight Loss: “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!”

For Obesity: “After a number of painful experiences, I was skeptical about the benefits of Lomaira. Anyways, I decided to follow my doctor’s prescription and give it a try. I am so glad it works for me! No side effects and it works well for my weight loss. I’ll continue taking Lomaira for a while and will share my feedback here.”

For Obesity: “I took Phentermine for 3 months and lost about 60 lbs. My doctor changed my prescription to Lomaira and I ended up having severe gas pains as well as no weight loss. I have been taking it 3xs a day for 2 months with no weight loss results.”

JR · Taken for less than 1 month · April 2, 2018

For Weight Loss: “I'm a 6'2" 47 year old overweight female. Like everyone else that is overweight, I have tried everything on the market! I started using Lomaira 2 weeks ago after my Dr recommended it to me. Previously on PHENTERMINE 37.5 MG TABLET, she thought maybe it would help to curb my appetite since I take these 3 times per day. Problem #1 it made me super constipated! I ended up in at the hospital last week with severe stomach pain. My X-ray showed my colon was packed full. Problem #2 It kept me wide awake at night!! I would try and go to bed around 8-9 pm, and would be back out of bed by 10 and wide awake until 4am..complete insomnia! Problem #3 it never curbed my appetite, in fact I ate worse taking Lomaira than with the Phentermine. Weight loss pills aren't for me I guess! Good Luck to everyone that is having success with this drug! I envy you!”

For Obesity: “This product has worked really well for me. I have no side effects and tons of energy. I have been able to stay on track with what my nutritionist has suggested for the first time. I can actually control what I eat. I am getting closer and closer to the BMI my doctors said I need to get to to be healthy. It is going to be a long journey, but I have tried everything before this and nothing worked. This is the first time I have seen results and I am sticking with it. Its been 6 weeks so far and I hopeful that this will help me reach my final goal weight.”

Weighloss surgery · Taken for less than 1 month · May 1, 2018

For Obesity: “I have to lose 45 lbs before I can be approved for weight loss surgery. Dr. wanted me on Adipex, but I was very hesitant because every time I took over the counter weigh loss meds I have chest pains and elevated heart rate. After explaining my worry, she decided to start me on Lomaira. My weight tends to flucutate so badly, but I started the pills Saturday morning 4-28-18. Today, 5-1-18 I have now lost 4lbs. I do NOT have more energy. However, I'm never hungry. I only eat when my belly rumbles and becomes slightly upset (telling me to eat even though my head is telling me I am not hungry) which is roughly twice a day and when I do eat it's nowhere near what I used to. And I haven't had 1 side effect whatsoever. Hoping to shed the 40 pounds by next month.”
