Qsymia is a new weight loss medication that is composed of phentermine and topiramate. Being new, it is not yet available in a generic form. Therefore it is more expensive, and the pricing can vary greatly from pharmacy to pharmacy. Fortunately the manufacturer of Qsymia has partnered with Medvantx mail order pharmacy to provide a more affordable alternative.
If one of our providers sent a script to Medvantx, you must go to QsymiaEngage.com and register online so that Medvantx will be able to connect your info to the prescription we sent. You will then receive two prescriptions in the mail: a 14 day trial of the 3.75mg dose, and 30 days of the 7.5mg dose.
Start with the trial and simply take 1 tablet every morning when you first wake up. After the trial, if you haven’t had any adverse side effects, transition over to the 7.5mg dose.
Your next appointment with our office should be around 6 weeks from when you started Qsymia, since you received two prescriptions, but after that they will need to be every 4 weeks.
After you have completed 3 months of 7.5mg you may be elligible to increase your dose under certain conditions.
