    why not just buy P tablets and break them in half

    Why not just buy 15mg p tablets and break them in half to get qsymia 7mg dosage. That only costs about 10 bucks a month. Do the same with topiramate. Ask your doctor and save tons of money.

    I recommend to all the fanatic posters on this board to order some P off the internet. See how you like the irritablility when you urinate, the dry eyes, the flighty heart beat when you are trying to sleep. It works great at first. But then you get used to it and you find you still can't put down the fork and are dealing with the sideeffects for nothing. Then you stop. Then the weight really comes back on. Because the truth is the problem is you are lazy slob. And no pill can fix that.

    Frankly, even if you aren't a lazy slob, it is still near impossible to keep weight off if your body has been able to put it on. Its genetics. Short of living a boot camp regiment of excercise and diet.

    I had heard about this company for long time, but i just recently learned all they do is mix P and another drug and knew it couldn't be that great.

    • well, i dont own any shares, but you are misinformed, q is time released which is very important, and certain drugs should not be split, can have adverse effects on the human body.

    • Why do that and not have a single daily dose, controlled release pill. Its covered by insurance so it doesn't cost anything but your deductible.

        It doesn't cost anything because its covered by insurance?? Well, it therefore costs something to the insuance provider! Who in turn passes along that expense. This mode of falsely believing that because the (government) pays for something, it is therefore "free", is why our country is tanking.

      • well, you only have to take one p pill a day also. and many of us have five thousand dollar deductibles. The only people that stay on diet pills are abusers. And yes they make you very stupid and it can even be a challenge turning into a parking spot. Don't get me wrong, i think Qsymia is a fine dosage concept. but thats all it is. Its not the road to riches. People who use diet pills black market, and there are many hundreds thousands if not millions of people who do. Thats why yahoo blocks if you right out the full word for P. They have been self dosing their drug coctails for years. Thats the mass market for diet pills. Underground. Doctors will always be slow to distribute this crap because they are educated and know there is no magic pill, only a tradeoff. A very big one. Between short term gains and sideeffects.

      • Perfect, the "irritablility when you urinate, the dry eyes, the flighty heart beat when you are trying to sleep" will much less expensive !!!!!
