VIVUS Announces Availability Of Once Daily Qsymia™ (Phentermine And Topiramate Extended-Release) Capsules CIV

Obesity and Losing Weight

Many factors contribute to excess weight gain. These include environmental factors, genetics, health conditions or certain medications, emotional factors and other behaviors.

All this contributes to more than 110 million Americans being obese or overweight with at least one weight-related comorbidity. Excess weight increases the risk of conditions including type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, stroke and osteoarthritis.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), losing just 10% of body weight may help obese patients reduce the risk of developing other medical conditions, while making a meaningful difference in health and well-being.

About Qsymia

The safety and efficacy of Qsymia were evaluated in two multicenter, phase 3 trials that included more than 3,700 patients:  severely obese patients (the EQUIP study) and overweight or obese patients with at least two weight-related comorbidities, such as hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, type 2 diabetes or central adiposity (the CONQUER study). The average weight loss in EQUIP was 10.9% on Qsymia 15 mg/92 mg and 1.6% for placebo (ITT-LOCF, p<0.0001). The average weight loss in CONQUER was 9.8% on Qsymia 15 mg/92 mg, 7.8% on Qsymia 7.5 mg/46 mg and 1.2% for placebo (ITT-LOCF, p<0.0001).

The most common adverse reactions for patients treated with Qsymia included tingling sensation of hands and feet, dizziness, altered taste, insomnia, constipation and dry mouth.

The Qsymia REMS program is intended to inform prescribers and female patients of reproductive potential about the following: an increased risk of orofacial clefts in infants exposed to Qsymia during the first trimester of pregnancy; the importance of pregnancy prevention for females of reproductive potential receiving Qsymia; and the need to discontinue Qsymia immediately if pregnancy occurs. 

For more information about Qsymia, go to www.Qsymia.com. For full prescribing information go to http://vivus.com/docs/QsymiaPI.pdf.
