I have been on Belviq for five weeks and have lost 11 lbs. I am taking 2 pills a day. Side effects at first were sleepiness, feeling cold all the time and some muscle weakness. Now I just have dry mouth and i have a hard time getting started in the morning which is unusual for me. I just had bloodwork done and cholosterol is finally in normal range and all other results were excellent. All cravin...

I've tried several different weight loss medications. My doctor recommended this because she thought it would be a good fit. Described it as appetite suppressant. Didn't do a thing!!! Did the 15 day trial then paid over $150 including the $75 off coupon. I'm going back to Phentermine. Belviq is worthless. Don't waste your money on this or Qysimia. It's also worthless and extremely expensive. And n...

Only problem is the expense, even with manufacturer discount card, nearly $120 a month!

I have been on Belviq for over a week and have lost 6 pounds so far. I'm taking it for weight loss to ease the pressure on my knees (osteo-arthritis). I really do not want the knee replacement and I'm not keen on a gastric sleeve. I cannot exercise a whole lot and Belviq is helping with my hunger. I quit smoking in June and I have been ravenous for snack foods. I have replaced them with fruit and salads. I just hope it continues to help curb the hunger...Only 94 pounds to go!

This my second go round with this drug. The first time I took it in 2016 and lost 30 pounds in 3 months. Then it stopped working for me and I started eating everything around me again with no control. I stopped taking it for a month and started again but it still did not take care of my appetite. My side effects were pretty severe to begin with and then subsided some. I was fatigued, foggy, joint pains, back pains and thirsty ALL of the time. After talking with my doctor we decided to try it again now. I still have the same pains just not as bad as the first time and they are going away, except the back pain. Today is day 17 and I am down 12 pounds. Appetite is under control and I have NO desire to eat sweets or drink sweet tea or sodas. I am making better food choices and usually get a walk in each day. I hope it continues to have this effect and not stop working the way it did 2 years ago.

I started taking Belviq twice a day in November 2018 it is now March of 2019 and I have lost 28 pounds. It has helped me not think about food all the time, eat smaller portions and make better decisions of what I am eating. I have been tracking calories on the lose it app on my phone. The only down side is I finally found something to help me and the price is tough but they just put the price up another $20 which stinks. I haven't had any side effects from Belviq.
