Under the direction of Dr. Prab Tumpati, or other W8MD physician, W8MD Weight Loss Centers can help determine if any of the FDA approved weight loss medications such as Qsymia (Phentermine, Topiramate generic or brand), Belviq (Lorcaserin) or other weight loss medications are appropriate for you. These weight loss medications will be combined with other proven weight loss measures such as a low calorie diet to help you overcome obesity and to make a difference. The doctor’s of W8MD partner with each patient to develop a custom weight management program to best meet their individual needs taking into account their medical history, lifestyle and goals.

Since weight and sleep go together, most of the W8MD centers are able to address sleep issues such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome to name a few.

And the best part of the program is that most insurance’s cover the doctor visits.

  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!New Weight Loss Medications Belviq and QsymiaAvailable For Weight LossMore than one-third of U.S. adults are obese, and obesitycontributes to a number of health conditions, includinghigh blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!To help obese and overweight Americans who have beenunsuccessful in getting their weight under control withdiet and exercise, the Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has approved two new medications—the first drugsfor long-term weight management that FDA hasapproved in 13 years.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!Marketed as Belviq and Qsymia, these prescriptionmedications would be taken for the rest of a person’s life.“For many people, obesity is a lifelong condition, but wedon’t always think of it—or treat it—as such,” says AmyEgan, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director for safety in FDA’sDivision of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products(DMEP).“Qsymia and Belviq are considered life-long therapies inpatients who respond to and tolerate them,” says Egan.The drugs are meant to be used in conjunction with abalanced diet and exercise, says Mary Roberts, M.D., amedical officer in DMEP. “These drugs are another tool tobe used by someone trying to reach and stay at a healthyweight,” she says.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!Are You a Candidate For Qsymia or Belviq Weight LossDrug?You may be a candidate for taking Belviq or Qsymia ForWeight Loss if you are at least 18 and:• your body mass index (BMI) is 30or greater (obese); or• your BMI is 27 or greater (overweight) and you have atleast one other weight-related condition.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!Contraindications for Qsymia and Belviq Weight LossMedicationsWomen who are pregnant or thinking of becomingpregnant should not take either of these medications,Egan says, because weight loss offers no potential benefitto a pregnant woman and can cause fetal harm.Qsymia carries a risk for birth defects (cleft lip with orwithout cleft palate) in infants exposed during the firsttrimester of pregnancy.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!How Does Qsymia and Belviq Work For Weight Loss?Belviq—the trade name for the drug lorcaserin— is a 10mg tablet taken twice a day that works by activating apart of the brain that controls hunger.Belviq was tested in three clinical trials that lasted from52 to 104 weeks and included nearly 8,000 obese andoverweight patients.• The average weight loss for patients taking Belviqranged from 3 to 3.7 percent over those taking a placebo.• In studies of patients without type 2 diabetes, about 47percent of patients lost at least 5 percent of their weightcompared with 23 percent of patients treated withplacebo.Belviq should be discontinued if a patient fails to lose 5percent of their weight after 12 weeks of treatment, as it isunlikely that continued treatment will be successful.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!Qsymia is a combination of two FDA-approved drugs:phentermine, an appetite suppressant, and topiramate,used to treat epilepsy and migraines. Roberts explainsthat Qsymia is taken once a day, with patients starting atthe lowest dose (3.75 mg phentermine/23 mg topiramateextended-release), then increasing to the recommendeddose (7.5 mg/46 mg). In some circumstances, patients mayhave their dose increased to the highest dose (15 mg/92mg).Qsymia, was tested in two clinical trials which includednearly 3,700 obese and overweight patients treated for upto one year.• The average weight loss of patients taking Qsymiaranged from 6.7 percent (lowest dose) to 8.9 percent(recommended dose) over those taking a placebo.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!• Sixty-two percent of patients on the lowest dose and 70percent on the recommended dose lost at least 5 percent oftheir weight compared with 20 percent treated withplacebo.If after 12 weeks, a patient has not lost 3 percent of his orher weight on the recommended dose of Qsymia, FDArecommends that treatment be discontinued or increasedto the highest dose. If after an additional 12 weeks on thehighest dose, a patient does not lose at least 5 percent ofweight, Qsymia should be discontinued gradually.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!The History of Weight Loss MedicationsWhy has it been 13 years since the last diet drug wasapproved?Eric Colman, M.D., deputy director of DMEP, says thatdrug companies have been testing potential new weightloss drugs, but none had proven effective and safe forconsumers until now.(However, the real reason was that FDA did not have asingle bariatric doctor on their panel to decide on weightloss medications until recently when the inducted amember of the American Society of Bariatric Physician.Within 6 months, two new weight loss medications wereapproved)1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!Before Belviq and Qsymia, the only prescription drugcurrently approved for long-term treatment of obesity wasorlistat, marketed as Xenical.Orlistat is also sold over the counter in a lower dose asAlli.But Colman explains that FDA has a long history withweight-loss drugs, one set against a backdrop of changingattitudes towards obesity. It wasn’t that long ago, he says,that vanity was considered the only reason to lose weight.That mindset has shifted over the last 20 years withrecognition that obesity is a serious health concern.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!FDA approved the first prescription obesity medication in1947, an appetite suppressant called desoxyephedrine ormethamphetamine. Over the next few decades, severalmore appetite suppressants were approved. In 1973, FDAlimited all weight loss drugs to short term use, reflectingconcerns about an epidemic of amphetamine use, Colmansays.In 1997, two diet drugs were removed from the marketbecause of concerns about damage to heart valves. Theywere fenfluramine (part of the popular fen-phen) anddexfenfluramine (Redux). In 2010, the drug sibutramine(Meridia) was also removed because of concerns about anincreased risk of heart attacks and strokes.1(800)W8MD-007 NE Philadelphia, And King Of Prussia in PA New York City Stamford, CT
  • W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of America - Lose Weight, Sleep Better & Live Longer!The manufacturers of both Belviq and Qsymia will berequired to perform long-term trials to examine the effectof these products on the risk for heart attacks and strokes.Where can I be evaluated to see if Iam a candidate for Belviq, Qsymiaor any other weight loss medication?A licensed and experienced weight loss physician familiarwith these medications such as the W8MD Medical WeightLoss Center Physicians should be consulted to carefullyevaluate your situation.
