and I meant 30-40% of our patients and every yr we get significantly more in the 350-450lb range.
A good amt of time has been spent discussing the legalities of not giving patients Beviq. esp the higher risk morbidly obese. If they die of a heart attack and weren't offered the drug. Will the family sue? Or if borderline diabetics aren't offered Bevliq and eventually go on insulin. Will they sue? Drs have to offer the drug and be sure to note if the patient turns down the drug in their chart. If these are the discussions in our office then you can bet the same is going on everywhere. I'm not a dr. office manager
Also, drs are reluctant to give Qsymia to men who may then give away their pills to a women who gets pregnant resulting in a child with a birth defect. Who gets sued? The DR. of course. So the drug of choice has to be Belviq.
If diet and exercise had worked then 35%-40% wouldn't be obese and the nos are increasing. They on the most part want a pill to do this for them. It's rare we see anyone that is morbidly obese lose any noticeable wt. We tend to only treat their high blood pressure and diabetes. Now we can treat the cause of these problems.
At a mtg; all the drs decided to not give Q to women due to risk of birth defects.
So far 2 scripts have been written for Qsymia. These pts are well over 450 lbs. and risk to death is high. Drs are waiting for Belviq and have discussed with many of their patients who will come in and pick up their prescriptions
Could it be the Selexix deal or these low percentage deals they've made on many of their drugs.

is not only for MRSA ; but also bacterial pneumonia and bronchitis. This drug given orally will reduce hospital stays as drugs such as Vancomycin are IV given and more significant is has a reduced probability of resistance. Delafloxacin may become the first line of treatment before many others.
30% obesity rate is just unbelievable. In 5 yrs will it be over 50%? Scary
Bingo, and by this time next yr if you were obese and contracted high blood pressure or diabetes and were not put on Belviq or Quismia by your Dr the lawyers will be knocking.
