Dr Oz: Qnexa – Miracle Weight-Loss Diet Pill? Who Should Take Qnexa?

Dr Oz: Qnexa

You’ve tried everything to lose weight, but can’t seem to shed those pesky pounds. Is Qnexa the miracle pill to help you lose the weight? According to studies, Qnexa curbs your cravings, suppresses the appetite and even changes the way the food tastes, but is this pill too good to be true? The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) doesn’t think so. Qnexa may soon be approved by the FDA, the first in 13 years. Before you go out to get this miracle drug, find out more information.

    I would like to know how someone got their doctor to prescribe this if it’s not FDA approved yet? I know my doctor would never consider giving this to me unless it is approved. However, I am looking forward to finally getting something that works.

    Dieting works….but for those who have metabolic syndrome one has to eat practically nothing to lose a lb. Also, due to severe arthritis in my hips and spine…there is only so much exercise that I can do. I know once I lose it, I will have an easier time maintaining it because I will be able to move better and my metabolism will be functioning better…….for now, I can’t lose the weight without help. Please FDA…get moving on this!

    Barbara, Each of the component medications in Qnexa ie (phentermine and topiramate) have indivudually been approved by the FDA for many years. There are several hundred physicians that have been using this combination for long term weight-loss with great success and safety for years. We began using this combination of medications in 1999. Using drugs “off label” is perfectly legal and in fact done quite often my many physicians. Nearly 30 % of medications used in adult medicine are used off label and probably close to 50% in pediatrics. I believe that Qnexa, although effective for many patients initially , will suffer due to its dosage limitations as determined by the FDA.

    Thank you Robert for your reply. I see you are an MD….so you’d know. Since I go for check up’s every 3 months I think I will ask my Dr. if I can take these two meds in combination and if he will prescribe it for me. Can’t hurt to ask. My only problem will be that he is very cautious about stuff like this….so I hope I don’t have to do too much convincing. Thanks again!

    Bridgette….from what Robert said, I would have to say that doctors cannot prescribe the new drug Qnexa till the FDA approves it, but they can prescribe the two drugs involved separately. Not sure how they go about justifying it with insurance though.

    When taken separately or alone both of these drugs are used to treat something other than weight loss. So when a doctor prescribes this combination it goes through the insurance company that you are being treated for two problems individually with these meds so in reality no one but you and your doctor know exactly what’s going on and that your actually treating weight loss

    Taking diet pills should have a recommendation from a doctor. Pills can be helpful and a careful attention to details with its effects is essential. Be sure to take advice from the medical professional to know what you are taking in behalf of loosing your weight. Great information to know.

  7. barbara says

    Hmm…@”free diets that work”, these diet pills cannot be taken or gotten without a doctor’s prescription..other than it is always good advise to consult your doctor when going on any diet…for this discussion about these pills, I am not sure what your point is?

    I suffer from hypertension, and is looking for a diet pill such qnexa to help curb my appetite. Is qnexa okay for people with hypertension since it contains the stimulant? If not what else is out there on the market?

    It it a diet pill that can be ordered online or is it only being prescribed through a physician? I’m 5’2 & 135lbs and wants to be at 115lbs to be comfortable, but my previous physician will only allow me to lose so many lbs, staying at 120-123lbs. Any suggestions as to what I can do to get to my ideal weight?

    If your doctor is prescribing it then probably many other doctors are too. My doctor gave me a lecture about losing weight using diet pills that will probably end up being taken off the market due to side effects like all the other pills in the past. So…not sure I will be getting these from him.
