Phentermine Topiramate Review

If you are a bit overweight or obese, you have some good news. The FDA has changed it’s “deny every weight loss drug policy” and is moving in the right direction.

Ironically, the FDA did not have a single Bariatrician or weight loss doctor on their panel that reviews weight loss medications until recently. As soon as they have a bariatric doctor on the panel, coincidentally or otherwise, they have two new weight loss medications – Qsymia which is a combination of Phentermine and Topiramate and Belviq (Lorcaserin).

Here is the information on Qsymia™ (Qsymia is the trade mark of Vivus, Inc.)
