Qsymia Medication Information

Qsymia® (phentermine and topiramate) is a prescription diet pill that is taken once daily for weight loss. Specifically, it is approved for use in adults who are obese or those who are overweight and have a weight-related health condition (like diabetes or high blood pressure).
 
Qsymia contains two medications: phentermine and topiramate. Phentermine is a weight loss medicine that is similar to amphetamines. It is thought to work by suppressing the appetite and decreasing the amount of food a person eats. Topiramate is believed to work by enhancing the feeling of fullness.
 
Although most people tolerate Qsymia well, side effects are possible and may include insomnia, constipation, and dizziness. Fortunately, most reactions to this drug tend to be minor and easy to treat.
