What Is In Qsymia?

Available by prescription only, Qsymia® (phentermine and topiramate) is a combination drug approved for use in people who are obese or have at least one weight-related medical condition (such as diabetes or high cholesterol). But what is in Qsymia?
 
Qsymia contains two medications: phentermine and topiramate. Phentermine is a weight loss medicine that is similar to amphetamines. It is thought to primarily work by suppressing appetite and decreasing the amount of food a person eats.
 
Although it is not exactly known how topiramate works for weight loss, it is thought that it works in the brain to suppress appetite and enhance feelings of fullness.
