Qsymia Problems

Qsymia® (phentermine and topiramate) is a medication prescribed to help with weight loss. It is approved for use in people who are obese or people who are overweight with at least one weight-related medical condition, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Although it can be an effective way to lose weight, this drug is not suitable for some people.
 
Some of the possible problems with Qsymia include drug interactions, heart problems, and an increased risk for suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Other potential complications include an increased risk for kidney stones, seizures, and drowsiness. In addition, this product may cause metabolic acidosis, which occurs when there is too much acid in the blood.
 
This medication should not be taken by those who have glaucoma or hyperthyroidism, as well as women who are pregnant.
