Hi, I am a 21 year old female, height of 5'2 & weighing around 260 pounds. I have struggled with weight loss. I wanted to know your thoughts on qsymia (phentermine and topiramate)?

This needs to be combined with at least 20 to 30 minutes of exercise a day, trying to lose 1-2 pounds per week at the most. ...Read more
