    VIVUS Reduces Barrier to Achieving Healthy Weight Goals With Launch of Online Platform to Purchase Qsymia®

    VIVUS, Inc.

The online ordering platform is another component of the Qsymia Advantage Program, which is designed to improve patient access to Qsymia. “One of the consistent pieces of feedback that we have heard from patients utilizing and physicians prescribing Qsymia has been the high out of pocket cost.  Historically, the patient’s out of pocket cost has been in excess of $140 per month for the low strength doses and in excess of $200 per month for the high strength doses.  These high out of pocket costs limited patients from initiating therapy or continuing therapy after initiation,” said John Amos, Chief Executive Officer at VIVUS.
