Qsymia (Phentermine / Topiramate) is a combination of a weight-loss drug called phentermine and an anticonvulsant called topiramate.
Qsymia (Phentermine / Topiramate) Side Effects:
Phentermine has the potential to be misused because it acts like a stimulant drug called an amphetamine.
Other possible side effects include an increase in heart rate and blood pressure, insomnia, constipation, and nervousness. Topiramate increases the risk of birth defects.
Qsymia (Phentermine / Topiramate) for Weight Loss:
Phentermine by itself (Adipex-P, Lomaira) also is used for weight loss. It’s one of four similar weight-loss drugs approved for use for less than 12 weeks, called short-term use. The other drugs in this group aren’t often prescribed.
