It used to be sold in the U.S. only online through a mail order system through select pharmacies. Today, Qsymia is available in over 40,000 U.S. independent pharmacies as well as national pharmacy chains.
Catalent Pharmaceuticals is the exclusive manufacturer of Qsymia (mix of Topiramate and Phentermine), but its capacities are not ready to expand the marketing of diet pills. So, if Qsymia is approved in Europe, Vivus will have to go into partnership with other pharmaceutical manufacturers. Two pharmaceutical companies, Actavis and Teva, are trying to challenge patent exclusivity for Qsymia. By the second quarter of 2016, Vivus owns 12 patents for Qsymia in the US. and 4 patents are pending. Actavis and Teva have challenged the most patents for Qsymia in order to get approval to manufacture and sell Qsymia generics in the U.S.
