Review of weight loss medications or diet pills including Qsymia(Phentermine and Topiramate), Belviq(Lorcaserin), Adipex(Phentermine), Bontril(Phendimetrazine), Tenuate(Diethylpropion) etc.

What is the most effective weight loss diet pill combination?

The combination of the drugs phentermine and topiramate for weight loss has been around since the US FDA approved this combination in extended release formulation as Qsymia. Since this combination effectively blocks two major pathways in the brain including reduced appetite and reduced cravings with much lower doses of each of the two components Phentermine and Topiramate, it tends to be the most effective for most people!

Who should consider weight loss medications or diet pills?

Your doctor may prescribe you a medication in addition to diet and exercise to treat your obesity if you are an adult with

∎ a BMI of 30 or greater OR

∎ a BMI of 27 or greater and you have obesity- related medical problems, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.

Cost of generic Phentermine Topiramate versus brand name Qsymia

Given the constraints of cost and availability, some physicians including W8MD physicians have used the off label combination of Phentermine and Topiramate with similar results in terms of weight loss although the generic is not the extended release and the dosage availability is slightly different.

How effective is Phentermine and Topiramate for weight loss?

In clinical trials, phentermine/topiramate ER was associated with modest but statistically significant weight loss when compared with placebo. This weight loss was associated with improvements in weight-related comorbidities such as improved glycemia, decreased blood pressure, and improved cholesterol.

How much weight loss can one expect with Phentermine and Topiramate?

While individual results vary, the studies on people treated with the highest dose of phentermine/topiramate ER in combination with a program of diet and exercise lost 10% to 11% of their body weight compared to 1% to 2% for those who received placebo.

Also, 62% to 70% of subjects receiving the recommended dose or top dose of phentermine/topiramate ER achieved =5% weight by week 56 (ITT-LOCF) compared to 17% to 21% of those receiving a sugar pill.

How does Phentermine and Topiramate compare to the other new weight loss medications Belviq(Lorcaserin) and Contrave(Bupropion and Naltrexone)?

Generally speaking, Phentermine and Topiramate tends to more effective – almost twice as effective as Lorcaserin and significantly more effective than Contrave. Roughly, about 10-11% weight loss was seen with Phentermine and Topiramate, 5% weight loss with Contrave and 3-4.5% with Belviq in clinical studies.

Where can I find physicians familiar with Qsymia, Belviq, Contrave and other weight loss medications?

W8MD medical weight loss physicians are familiar with the various new and existing weight loss medications and can help you make an informed decision on the one that is right for you based on your medical history, individual preference, life style and goals!

Keep in mind that weight loss medications have to be used in consultation with a physician familiar with these medications along with a reduced calorie diet and exercise in those that have the proper indications.

W8MD’s very low calorie and low calorie dietary supplements can be combined with the weight loss medications under careful medical supervision for optimal results under physician supervision.
