Qsymia and Belvaq
Has anyone on here had any dealings with either one of these two new weight loss medications? I'm not even sure that Belvaq is out on the market yet but I know that Osymia is. There is a restricted distribution by the manufacturer and apparently, only Walgreens and Publix pharmacies here in Florida carry this medication. I didn't even see any CVS pharmacies on that list. I'm looking for some information to see if this stuff actually works on the obese. The manufacturer of Belvaq says that this medication is for those with a BMI of 30 or greater and one or more comorbity problems such as Hypertension, Type II Diabetes, etc. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Drug is called QSYMIA® (Kyoo sim ee’ uh), not Osymia.
