Belviq – Another Dodgy Weight Loss Fix, or the Miracle the US Has Been Waiting For?

There’s a lot of it about. Weight loss drugs that is. Qnexa a short while ago, Belviq more recently. Are they the answer to American obesity epidemic? Or are they just opportunistic drug manufacturers cashing in on an opportunity. The trouble is that 2 out of 3 Americans are carrying too much weight. This problem brings with it a huge medical services burden because of the diseases that are associated with obesity. There is an official desperation to do something about it.

Obesity Checks – Big Brother or a Helping Hand?

Great news, at least on the surface; a US Task Force identifies the serious obesity problem as a cause for concern and recommends serious steps to take control of this problem. As usual though, the responsibility is placed in the hands of the medics and the pharmaceutical industry, rather than where it needs to be – in the hands of whoever has the weight problem.

Qsymia/Qnexa – the New Weight Loss Miracle Drug.

Miracle drugs are generally only miracle drugs until the lawsuits start to come in. Miracle drugs only really get tested after approval when they are prescribed in their millions. There is no safe weight loss pill on the market. Every miracle weight loss drug has eventually been withdrawn because of serious side effects. The hamster wheel is about to run again as Qnexa comes close to receiving approval and hits the market. When it does it will make $ billions for its manufacturer.
