Express Scripts Joins Qsymia(TM) (Phentermine And Topiramate Extended-Release) Certified Home Delivery Pharmacy Network

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VIVUS, Inc. (Nasdaq:VVUS) today announced that Express Scripts, the country's largest Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM), has joined the Qsymia Certified Home Delivery Pharmacy Network. 

Qsymia is available only through mail order from the Qsymia Certified Home Delivery Pharmacy Network, including CVS Pharmacy, Walgreens and now Express Scripts, as part of the Qsymia Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program. Contact information for the certified pharmacies can be found on www.Qsymia.com and www.QsymiaREMS.com .

Qsymia was made available September 17, 2012 and is the first FDA-approved once daily combination therapy — and the first new medication available in 13 years — for the treatment of obesity.

About Qsymia

Qsymia™ (pronounced Kyoo sim ee' uh) is indicated as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adults with an initial body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m 2 or greater (obese) or 27 kg/m 2 or greater (overweight) in the presence of at least one weight-related medical condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.

Important Safety Information

Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate extended-release) capsules CIV must not be used by women who are pregnant; by patients with eye problems (glaucoma); by patients who have been told they have an overactive thyroid; by patients taking a type of anti-depressant called MAOI; or by patients who are allergic to phentermine, topiramate, or any of the ingredients in Qsymia.

Qsymia can harm your unborn baby. If you take Qsymia while you are pregnant, your baby has a higher risk for birth defects called cleft lip and cleft palate. You should have a negative pregnancy test before taking Qsymia and every month while taking Qsymia. Use effective birth control (contraception) consistently while taking Qsymia. If you become pregnant while taking Qsymia, you should stop taking Qsymia immediately and contact your healthcare provider right away.
