Here is information about Suicidal Behavior and Ideation regarding Qsymia (phentermine / topirimate) as shown in the prescribing information.
Suicidal Behavior and Ideation
Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), including topiramate, a component of Qsymia, increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior in patients taking these drugs for any indication.
Patients treated with Qsymia should be monitored for the emergence or worsening of depression, suicidal thoughts or behavior, and/or any unusual changes in mood or behavior.
Discontinue Qsymia in patients who experience suicidal thoughts or behaviors.
Avoid Qsymia in patients with a history of suicidal attempts or active suicidal ideation.
