What is Qsymia?
Qsymia is a prescription medicine used to help battle weight loss. Qsymia contains phentermine and topiramate. The phentermine begins working immediately to help reduce your appetite, and topiramate helps you feel more satisfied after your meals. This medication is meant to be accompanied by a low-calorie diet and an increased amount of physical activity. Qsymia is for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more.
Benefits of Qsymia
Qsymia was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012, and since then has been rated the number one weight-loss drug! In the medical journal of JAMA, they found that after a year of taking Qsymia participants lost just short of 20 pounds. The competitors average weight loss was 12 pounds or lower.
