Qsymia is gaining reputation as one of the most effective weight loss medications available. It is one of the only weight loss medications approved for long-term use by the FDA.
Qsymia is recommended for those who are obese, overweight or have a BMI greater than 27 and are struggling with obesity-related diseases. It is only available through a prescription from your doctor.
Qsymia is a combination of phentermine, an appetite suppressant, and topiramate, an anticonvulsant. When used in conjunction with regular physical activity and a healthy diet, Qsymia helps people lose weight and keep it off.
The medication works by targeting multiple brain pathways to curb overeating and help you remain full longer between meals. Most people start losing weight within their first three months of taking Qsymia.
The amount of weight lost using Qsymia depends on the percentage of body fat at the onset of medical weight loss as well as the dosage of the medication. Clinical trials reveal weight loss ranging from five to 14 percent of body weight during the course of one year.
Qsymia helps people overcome chronic obesity-related diseases, including:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
Weight loss medications like Qsymia should only be taken under the guidance of a medical weight loss specialist. If you have struggled to lose weight on your own, then our medical weight loss program featuring Qsymia might be able to help.
Weight Loss Medications
Weight loss medications can boost weight loss efforts by limiting hunger and enhancing the body’s ability to burn fat.
Weight loss medications make it easier to follow a low-calorie diet, which enhances weight loss efforts. For those who are overweight or obese, at risk of developing obesity-related conditions and unable to lose weight by other means, weight loss medications may be recommended.
Weight loss medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are recognized as both safe and effective, but not all weight loss medications work the same way. Weekend Weight Loss Center now offers Qsymia as part of a comprehensive medical weight loss program.
