My doctor just prescribed Qsymia for me to begin taking, the smallest dose to start out with for 14 days, then increase from there etc. My family, friends and I are leaving for a 7 day cruise on May 4th. I would LOVE to take it during the cruise so that I can hopefully begin seeing results ASAP but I am worried I will have bad side effects if I indulge in a few drinks while taking the medication. I only drink a few times in a year, if that, but when we cruise I do generally have several :) Have any of you drank while taking Qsymia? Or should I wait until we get back to begin taking it?
Jaime from what i have read i think you should wait until you come back to start this medication,So you won't have side effects where you can't get help also very little studies have been done on alcohol and Osymia so far but it does say alcohol can increse the potency of medication and anything else your taking here is part of a copy paste on alchol... if Qsymia is used with alcohol or other CNS depressants, the patient should be counseled regarding possible increased risk of CNS depression or side effects>>> okay so cns is central nervous system. So why take a chance and mess up your cruise When you do start it, It does say best to take in the morning with or without food.I would reccomend you start it when you get back..Chuck1957 medically retired Pharmacy Techniecian Cpht.
