    Here is an update to a previous story of a 43-year-old man who had lost 44 pounds in three months on the experimental drug Qnexa, which is simply a combination of phentermine and Topamax (topriamate).

    As of now, which is approximately 4 months, he has lost 50 pounds.

    “Still going great!

    “I am working at it and watching what I eat.

    “[I am] riding about 4 days a week now during my lunch break.

    “I [have lost] 50 pounds now and half way to my 100 pounds.

    “I do believe the next 50 pounds are going to take 8 months to come off.

    “I am not putting up the big numbers like before but for to see anything in the right direction is progress!”
