Qnexa (que-NEX-suh) for weight loss
Patients will ask about Qnexa (que-NEX-suh) for weight loss.
It's not approved yet...but you'll likely see it this year.
Qnexa combines phentermine (Adipex-P) plus controlled-release topiramate (Topamax). The combo is more effective than either drug alone for weight loss. For example, Qnexa helps patients lose about 24 pounds in one year...compared to 5 to 10 pounds with phentermine and 13 pounds with topiramate.
