  • Qsymia combines the effects of phentermine HCl and topiramate-ER to make weight loss easier.
  • This medication comes in four progressive doses, allowing doctors and patients to customize treatment to each individual’s needs.
  • Qsymia can be used for long-term obesity management, unlike phentermine which should only be take for three months at a time.
  • Qsymia is significantly more expensive than phentermine-only pills, costing about $200 per month without insurance.
  • The combined pill has a long list of potential side effects, including severe birth defects if taken while pregnant.
  • This is a newer medication (FDA approval in 2012), so long-term side effects remain relatively unknown.
Overall, users give this pill 4 out of 5 stars. Patients report that the medication helps them lose weight, but many find the cost and side effects overwhelming.
