Wake up .... who would like to take Belviq if it takes up to 2 years just to lose 5% weight. Qsymia can do that in 6 months ! Survey shows that people are so pleased with losing weight when using Qsymia ! Get out of ARNA now, it's a trap !
You guys are just investing on something that simply doesn't work ! Forget Qsymia .... Belviq can't go any where by itself. Talk to some over-weight people and see if they are willing to take something for 2 years just hoping to lose 5% of their weight (they won't even do it for free considering the risk that they take). Just eat one meal less per week and you can lose that much in 2 years already. I know a girl at work who want to lose 20 lbs in 1 month ! It would take Belviq 20 years for a 300 pounder to be fit ! Is that where you put your money ?
Qsymia is somewhat more efficacious, granted. But so is poison and illness. Why do you think it is under such oppressive restrictions in the US? Why do you think the EU said "no". Why do you think VVUS has to give it away.
Once the lawsuits start, VVUS will go into the tank and qsymia will be no more. Belviq, a single novel agent (not a combo of two generics), will be combined with other drugs, and achieve more and safer weight loss than qsymia. It will also be prescribed for a variety of addictions, like smoking cessation.
You just don't understand that this is about more than just efficacy. Belviq is here to stay. Qsymia, a flash-in-the-pan.
