Qsymia combines two different medications into their product: phentermine and topiramate. Several years ago, phentermine was removed from the market due to saftey concerns. Topiramate was used to treat epilipsy and migraines in patients. When used together, these drugs can suppress appetite and help lower your food intake. The FDA approved Qsymia, manufactured by the Vivus company in July of 2012.
Lets take a look at the two main ingredients found in Qsymia so we can better understand how they work. Phentermine is a very well know, but controversial appetite suppresant. When used in short term, its been shown to be quite effective in weight loss. The drug triggers your brains to release higher amounts of norepinephrine neurotransmitters which cause the appetite suppression effect. Topiramate is used in several different anti-seizure and migraine drugs. This drug alters the way you taste food and this effect makes you not want to crave tasty and unhealthy foods, making you want to lose weight.
Qsymia’s combination of these two ingredients helps people lose weight by altering taste and suppressing appetite.
Only a qualified doctor should prescribe Qsymia to patients that need to lose weight. Those who have a BMI of 30+ should qualify for Qsymia. Also, people with a BMI of 27+ with weight related conditions such as: diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, etc. can use Qsymia with a doctors prescription.
Even after you have been qualified by a doctor to take Qsymia, we recommend that you really think long and hard about taking this drug. This product is not for everybody and should not be taken lightly. The folks at Vivus still need to further test this product to show that its safety can be proven in medical trials. None of the ingredients in Qsymia are natural and affect the nervous system. We would definitely recommend seeking a safer weight loss option.
