I am on day 5 of the 7.5 dosage of Qsymia and have not really noticed a difference in my appetite or had any noticable side affects. I'm wondering if it has just not been long enough or if I should call my doctor and talk about increasing the doasage . Has anyone out there had similar experiences and what did you do?

I am a 44 year old female that had a hysterectomy at 30. I am on my 3rd day with it and haven't really noticed a change in my actual appetite either. What I have noticed is that I'm making a conscious effort to be aware of when I first feel full and then I do stop eating. Thank God I haven't had any of those horrible side effects every one has mentioned. I do drink 101.5 ounces of water (two 50.75 crystal geyser bottles) per day any way though. This probably helps. I noticed that the guide says it doesn't know how it will interact with vitamins and supplements. Well, I was already taking Garcinia Gambogia, Raspberry Ketones, Forskolin and 7-Keto to help speed up my metabolism, shrinki fat cells, stop production of fat cells and block fat absorption. I had been taking these since March 10th and I believe that regimin along with diet and exercise helped me lose 14 pounds before starting Qsymia 3 days ago. I will keep you posted. (Oh, I started at 210 before Qsymia and am now 208)
