VIVUS Announces Initial Availability Of Qsymia(R) Through Certified Retail Pharmacies

To further assist patients with their Qsymia prescriptions, VIVUS has also made available two new and enhanced cost savings programs valid for both mail-order and retail pharmacy patients. The Free to Start program provides patients a free trial offer valid for the first 14 days of the starting dose of Qsymia (3.75 mg/23 mg), and is limited to one free trial per patient. The Stick To It & Save program provides patients a discount on up to three prescription fills for 30 days each of the recommended dose of Qsymia (7.5 mg/46 mg). Eligible patients who pay cash-out-of-pocket or insured patients with a co-pay greater than $75 will pay no more than $75 per prescription (restrictions apply; visit for more information).

With this certified retail expansion, the goals, commitments and components of the original Qsymia REMS will remain in place, including a Medication Guide, patient brochure, voluntary healthcare provider training and other educational tools. Retail pharmacies interested in becoming certified to dispense Qsymia can call the Qsymia REMS Pharmacy Support Center at 1-855-302-6698.
