Resolve's Clinical Director, Jennifer Robinson, FNP-C, has completed specialized training with Qsymia (a combination of phentermine and extended release topiramate) and many of their patients have been successful using this medication. The quick-release phentermine in Qsymia starts working immediately, and is thought to reduce your appetite, while the extended-release topiramate in Qsymia works throughout the day to help you feel full. It may also alter the taste of certain foods, helping to reduce the pleasure of eating and potentially reducing cravings for sweet or salty foods.
The clinical trials of Qsymia showed that many patients lost a significant amount of weight and inches, and may be as much a four times as effective as diet and exercise alone. We have seen first hand Qsymia's effectiveness of reducing appetite and cravings with minimum side effects. Combined with other weight loss modalities, it can produce great results. Getting that jump-start on weight loss can be the difference between reaching your goal or giving up.
While medication is a great step in the battle to lose weight, just taking a medication might not be enough. While your primary care doctor may be able to prescribe Qsymia, its is unlikely that they will be able to provide the other important pieces of the weight loss puzzle. At Resolve Medical Weight Loss, that is what we do, every day. Seeing a weight loss professional gives you the best chance to succeed.
