FDA Approves New Diet Drug

The FDA approved a new diet drug on Tuesday called Qsymia. The drug can help patients lose 10 percent of their body weight. The manufacturer of the drug, Vivus, expects it will be on the market later this year.

β€œQsymia (pronounced kyoo-sim-ee-uh), which suppresses appetite and increases the feeling of fullness, boosts patients’ weight loss when used along with a diet and exercise plan. Until now, the drug had been called Qnexa. Some experts are concerned that the drug raised the heart rates slightly in some patients.”
