In brief: Most women with BMI

Of 30 have no problem with fertility i would avoid all drugs when trying to conceive see endocrinologist of infertility specialist to look for other causes of infertility as i won't blame it on weight.

In brief: Don't take Qsymia (phentermine and topiramate)

If you are pregnant, or not on full birth control, it can cause cleft lip and palate.
