Qsymia

Prescriptive, Medical Weight Loss

Qsymia, approved by the FDA in 2012, is the only once-daily prescription weight loss medication that contains two ingredients to help you lose weight and keep it off. Qsymia’s patented formulation is a unique combination of Phentermine and Topiramate, which works synergistically to help decrease appetite, increase energy level, and increase satiety or the feeling of being full.

Topiramate, also known as topamax, has been prescribed for many years for seizure disorders and migraine prophylaxis. It can aid in weight loss by making foods (sugars and sodas) taste less appealing while increasing satiety. It specifically acts on the brain neurotransmitters.
