Silicon Valley is not only famous as a high technology hub, but it is also famous as a drugmaker powerhouse. One of those new generation drugmaker, VIVUS, has its headquarter located in Mountain View, just several blocks from the world’s largest search engine company Google main office.
VIVUS is now officially launched a new pill for helping people to control their weight. The anti-obesity pill is known as Qsymia. This week, the drugmaker introduced the new pill during a medical conference at The Obesity Society's Annual Scientific Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.
