Lomaira is a low dose of the #1 prescribed medicine for weight loss for nearly 60 years.

What is Lomaira?

Lomaira™ (phentermine hydrochloride USP) 8 mg tablets, CIV, is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that can be used for a short period of time (generally interpreted as up to 12 weeks) and might help some adults suppress appetite and lose weight.

Lomaira is FDA-approved for use as often as 3 times a day before meals.

Lomaira is for adults with an initial BMI* of 30 or more (obese) or 27 or more (overweight) with at least one weight-related medical condition such as controlled high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol and should be used together with regular exercise and a reduced-calorie diet.

Lomaira might help some adults eat less and lose weight.

  • Unlike the higher doses of phentermine HCl, Lomaira can be taken up to three times a day before meals.
  • If you need only one tablet before dinner to suppress appetite, there may be no need to increase the dose.
  • It has not been established that the primary action of such drugs in treating obesity is one of appetite suppression since other central nervous system actions may also be involved.

For patients with prediabetes, weight loss can prevent or delay
the development of type 2 diabetes in high-risk patients.1

Flexible dosing options offer a unique opportunity for patients to take a modest dose before each meal

Taking phentermine with other drugs for weight loss is not recommended. Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH), a rare fatal lung disease, has been reported in patients who had taken a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine for weight loss. The possible association between phentermine use alone and PPH cannot be ruled out. Patients should report immediately if they experience any decrease in the amount of exercise that they can normally tolerate, shortness of breath, chest or heart pain, fainting or swelling in the lower legs.

In relatively short-term clinical trials, adults with obesity who were treated with appetite suppressants and continued with a diet regime, lost more weight on the average than those treated with placebo and diet.

Lomaira Is an Affordable Option for Weight Loss.

Individualize a Treatment Plan

Healthcare professionals and patients can work together to individualize a comprehensive weight-loss treatment plan to fit each patient’s lifestyle.

  • By adding Lomaira to your diet and exercise routine for three months, you may lose more weight than with diet and exercise alone.2
  • Patients pay less than 50¢ per tablet, a cost savings of 85% compared to current branded, weight loss prescriptions drugs.3

Ask your healthcare professional if Lomaira is right for you.

INDICATION

Lomaira™ (phentermine hydrochloride USP) 8 mg tablets, CIV is a prescription medicine used for a short period of time (a few weeks) for weight reduction and should be used together with regular exercise and a reduced-calorie diet. Lomaira is for adults with an initial BMI* of 30 or more (obese) or 27 or more (overweight) with at least one weight-related medical condition such as controlled high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. The limited usefulness of this drug class (anorectics), including Lomaira, should be measured against possible risk factors inherent in their use.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Don’t take Lomaira™ if you have a history of cardiovascular disease (e.g., coronary artery disease, stroke, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure or uncontrolled high blood pressure); are taking or have taken a monoamine oxidase inhibitor drug (MAOI) within the past 14 days; have overactive thyroid, glaucoma (increased pressure in the eyes), agitation or a history of drug abuse; are pregnant, nursing, or allergic to the sympathomimetic amines such as phentermine or any of the ingredients in Lomaira.

Taking phentermine with other drugs for weight loss is not recommended. Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH), a rare fatal lung disease, has been reported in patients who had taken a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine for weight loss. The possible association between phentermine use alone and PPH cannot be ruled out. Patients should report immediately if they experience any decrease in the amount of exercise that they can normally tolerate, shortness of breath, chest or heart pain, fainting or swelling in the lower legs.

Serious heart valve problems or disease have been reported in patients taking a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine for weight loss. The possible role of phentermine has not been established, therefore the possibility of an association between heart valve disease and the use of phentermine alone cannot be ruled out.

If your body becomes adjusted to the maximum dose of phentermine so that its effects are experienced less strongly, the maximum dose should not be exceeded in an attempt to increase the effect.

Caution is advised when engaging in potentially hazardous activity such as driving or operating machinery while taking phentermine. Phentermine has the potential to be abused. Keep Lomaira in a safe place to prevent theft, accidental overdose, misuse or abuse. Using alcohol with phentermine may result in an adverse drug reaction.

Phentermine can cause an increase in blood pressure. Tell your doctor if you have high blood pressure, even if it’s mild. If you are taking medicines for type 2 diabetes, your doctor may have to adjust these medicines while taking phentermine.

Some side effects of phentermine that have been reported include pulmonary hypertension, valvular heart disease, palpitations, increased heart rate or blood pressure, insomnia, restlessness, dry mouth, diarrhea, constipation and changes in sexual drive. These are not all of the potential side effects of phentermine. For more information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

To report negative side effects of prescription drugs, contact FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or visit www.fda.gov/medwatch.
