In July of 2012, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new weight loss drug called Qsymia. This is a combination medication with two existing medications that are generic – Phentermine(Adipex or Bontril) and Topiramate (Topamax).
Generic Combination of Qsymia now available after consultation with W8MD Physicians
Although there is no office generic combination due to extended release and slightly off dosing of the topiramate component by the manufacturer of Qsymia, weight loss physicians have long used the combination of the two generic components of Phentermine and Topiramate for similar results.
As the manufacturer brand name cost of the medication at $150-160 per month is a bit high for many people trying to lose weight, some of our patients requested us on the generic combination with the same dose.
Realizing the significant cost benefit to our patients, W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers program in New York City, King Of Prussia and New York City have prescribed the generic combination of Phentermine, and Topiramate for significant cost saving and with very good results and is included in the biweekly program cost of $45.00.
Here is the information from the FDA on the new weight loss medication Qsymia
Call W8MD at 1(800)W8MD-007 to learn more about the generic combination of Phentermine and Topiramate to save on the cost or brand name Qsymia available after a consultation with our weight loss doctor.
Please note there is no official generic available for Qsymia due to odd dosing of Topiramate 23 mg in Qsymia instead of 25mg in generic Topiramate although the they work the same. Also Qsymia is extended release.
