I am not on qsymia (or the meds that make it up). I had to google it to see what it was. I haven't seen a thread here on it yet, although there may be one. There are all kinds of advice here on just about every diet aid. Many of us know that feeling of being down on ourselves and trying to cope by eating even more. It makes no sense, but at the time, we just want to self-medicate to feel better. But it only makes things worse, and it's funny how we know that's going to be the outcome but we can't seem to stop ourselves. When you say you try and try but the weight doesn't come off, do you mind if I ask what methods you have used, and did you not have any success at all, or do you mean that you gained back the lbs you lost? I'm asking because if you used a proven weight loss method and lost no lbs at all, maybe there is a medical reason behind it, like a sluggish thyroid or vitamin deficiency, etc. If you haven't had your doctor run such tests, you should. If instead you mean you lost some weight, but ended up putting it back on, maybe you just need to try a different way, a different method, one that will be easier for you to stick with. In any event, you will find lots of support here! So browse around and jump right in! Good luck!
