Good morning Pearl. Is it safe to take half a dosage of phentermine with lorcaserin? I had more appetite suppression with phentermine. Just beginning the lorcaserin a week back and barely any suppression. As a note I am also taking Lyrica occassionally for nerve pain from foot surgery. Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Daily just the ones mentioned above plus low dosage of birth control and metformin 500 to regulate hormones (I am 43)

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
