Effectiveness

How Lomaira Affects PatientsPhentermine is thought to reduce appetite, possibly by increasing levels of the hormone leptin. It may also increase how much energy you burn at rest. People taking phentermine in clinical studies typically lost an average of 3.6 kg (about 8 pounds) over 2-24 weeks. After stopping taking phentermine, people were able to maintain this weight loss. Unlike some other medications related to amphetamines, phentermine does not cause central nervous system stimulation, high blood pressure, decreased effectiveness with long-term use, or changes in heart rhythm.
How Lomaira works in the bodyPhentermine works by releasing adrenaline in the brain, which stimulates the body to be on alert and reduces hunger signals. It also affects serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine levels, and weakly inhibits monoamine oxidase. Overall, this creates a state of alertness and reduces the feeling of hunger.
