Don't Take Qnexa To Lose Weight and Solve Obesity, Change Your Diet

On Wednesday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisory panel approved a new weight loss pill called Qnexa. The drug is a combination of phentermine and topiramate, which acts as an appetite suppressant and a stimulant. Qnexa does appear to induce weight loss. According to a clinical trial conducted by VIVUS, the company developing the drug, patients who took it lost on average 37 lbs and saw their cardiovascular health improve.
