If you have no adverse effects, then you can take the drug for 18-24 months. However, if you have not lost any weight in 3-6 months, it is unlikely the pill will work in future. From clinical studies, the drug seems to work adequately for about 12 months. You can expect a weight loss of about 1-2 pounds a months as long as you combine it with changes in diet and exercise.

I have joined a weight loss clinic and they recommend that I buy their meals that can help me lose weight. What do you think?
I am sorry but you must be a very gullible and stupid person if you fall for this type of crap. There is no meal plan, which can help people lose weight. The entire weight loss industry is built on scams. Many companies encourage people to buy their meal plans making false claims that one can easily lose weight. It is all a bunch of BS.
These meal plains do not curb your desire to eat,, they do not help you lose calories, they do not suppress your appetite center, they do not burn off fat- all they do is empty your pockets of your hard earned money. If I were you, continue with the exercise, remain motivated and eat less. If you persist, you can lose weight- and it will cost you nothing.

Qsymia is a novel medication that is a combination of phentermine and topiramate. From the clinical trials, this drug was quite effective in not only lowering blood pressure and blood sugar but it also reduced weight.
Phentermine is an old CNS stimulant and topiramate is an anticonvulsant. So far, this combination has been deemed safe if taken for short periods. The drug has been approved by the FDA for weight loss in certain obese patients.
I am always skeptical of clinical trials run by funding from pharmaceutical companies. Moreover, doctors who write reports are often paid money by the companies and the negative results are never published. You should also be aware that approval of the drug was delayed for at least a year because the FDA was concerned about some serious side effects.
Finally, this drug combination is also prohibitively expensive. If I were you, I would wait a while before getting a prescription for this medication. Wait about a year and then you will have a better idea how other people do. In the meantime, walk regularly and eat less.

Phentermine has been around for more than half a century. It is a low potency drug that has some similarity to amphetamine. Over the years, it has been observed that some people can lose weight with this product. Why the drug does not cause weight loss in everyone is a mystery.
Phentermine is a prescription drug and is only prescribed for 12 weeks. It also has many side effects that includes dry mouth, high blood pressure, anxiety, lack of sleep etc. If you think that phentermine is going to help you lose weight while you watch TV, then forget it.
If you want phentermine to work then you MUST eat less and also incorporate some type of exercise into your daily life. Walking everyday is as good as any exercise. Going to the bathroom is pooping and not walking; you need to walk at least 60 mins every day. If you remain motivated, you will lose weight with this agent. However, do not expect miracles.
The weight loss with phentermine is about 2-3 pounds a month.
