I changed my lifestyle seven years ago and lost 114 pounds. Then I hit a plateu for about 9 months, then the weight started creeping up (25 lbs so far). I am hungry ALL the time so i asked my doc to put me on qsymia. I have not lost any weight, and its been 5 months. As a matter of fact, i keep gaining and losing the same five pounds over and over which is normal for me. What am i doing wrong? I try to exercise but its been hard because I'm exhausted all the time and my preferred method is walking and right now its way to hot here in FL for that.
I am not sure what you are doing wrong but perhaps Qsymia is not the medicine for you. If it hasn't helped in the last 5 months then I am not sure if it'll help even if you take it any longer, unless you really change your diet and exercise routine.
The link below has some reviews that may be helpful. All the best.
I started Qysmia in September of last year. Due to the cost, my Dr. decided to give me the generic form of phentermine/topomax. By March, i had lost 28 lbs. I was so happy. I still hadn't met my goal of 40 lbs. It's now been a whole year and I'm up 5 lbs. My Dr. Wants to take me off the medicine and i just want to cry because I'm sure I'll just creep back up. I wish you luck with this medicine. Hang in There. Did your Dr. Up your dose yet?
