FDA Approved Diet Drug Qsymia

Qsymia is an FDA-approved weight loss medication.  It is a unique once daily combination of 2 medications (phentermine & topiramate ER).  Phentermine starts working immediately and reduces your appetite. Topiramate ER works throughout the day and may help you feel full.

Qsymia was approved for as an addition to a weight-loss program that includes both calorie restriction and exercise.  Moreover, the FDA said the drug’s use should be limited to individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of at least 30, or a BMI of 27 with at least one other weight-related comorbidity such as diabetes or hypertension.

Remember, short-term changes in diet are not the answer to losing weight and keeping it off.  Lasting weight loss involves lifestyle changes that  include:

  • Healthy food choices
  • Regular physical activity
  • Balancing the number of calories you eat with the number of calories your body usesQsymia-New-Weight-Loss-Drug-for-Obesity
