The Full Story
Qsymia is a prescription weight loss medication that combines phentermine and the anti-seizure/migraine medication topiramate.
Qsymia works by reducing appetite and making food seem less appealing, potentially due to the action of topiramate on neurotransmitters in the brain.
Users can expect to lose 5-10% of their body weight over 8 weeks while using Qsymia, with side effects including dizziness, altered taste, insomnia, constipation, dry mouth, and tingling of hands and feet.
Qsymia may be more beneficial than other weight loss drugs due to its dual action of appetite suppression and making food less appealing, providing a two-pronged approach to weight management.
