    THIS IS WHY SMART MONEY IS SELLING VVUS AND BUYING ARNA BEFORE IT'S RUN-UP

     

    Qsymia can cause fetal harm. Females of reproductive potential should have a negative pregnancy test before treatment and monthly thereafter and use effective contraception consistently during Qsymia therapy. If a patient becomes pregnant while taking Qsymia, treatment should be discontinued immediately, and the patient should be informed of the potential hazard to the fetus.

    Qsymia can cause an increase in resting heart rate. Regular measurement of resting heart rate is recommended for all patients taking Qsymia, especially patients with cardiac or cerebrovascular disease or when initiating or increasing the dose of Qsymia. Qsymia has not been studied in patients with recent or unstable cardiac or cerebrovascular disease and therefore use is
    not recommended.

    Topiramate, a component of Qsymia, increases the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior in patients taking these drugs for any indication. Patients should be monitored for the emergence or worsening of depression, suicidal thoughts or behavior, and/or any unusual changes in mood or behavior. Discontinue Qsymia in patients who experience suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Qsymia is not recommended in patients with a history of suicidal attempts or active suicidal ideation.

    Acute angle closure glaucoma has been reported in patients treated with topiramate, a component of Qsymia. Symptoms include acute onset of decreased visual acuity and/or eye pain. Symptoms typically occur within 1 month of initiating treatment with topiramate but may occur at any time during therapy. The primary treatment to reverse symptoms is immediate discontinuation of Qsymia.

    Qsymia can cause mood disorders, including depression and anxiety, as well as insomnia. Qsymia can cause cognitive dysfunction (e.g., impairment of concentration/attention, difficulty with memory, and speech or language problems, particularly word-finding difficulties). Since Qsymia has the potential to impair cognitive function, patients should be cautioned about operating hazardous machinery, including automobiles.

    Hyperchloremic, non-anion gap, metabolic acidosis has been reported in patients treated with Qsymia. If metabolic acidosis develops and persists, consideration should be given to reducing the dose or discontinuing Qsymia.

    Qsymia can cause an increase in serum creatinine. If persistent elevations in creatinine occur while taking Qsymia, reduce the dose or discontinue Qsymia.

    Weight loss may increase the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated with insulin and/or insulin secretagogues (e.g., sulfonylureas). Qsymia has not been studied in combination with insulin. A reduction in the dose of antidiabetic medications which are non-glucose-dependent should be considered to mitigate the risk of hypoglycemia.
