You need to follow the doctors instructions ... but generally the dosage for Belviq is 10 mg orally twice daily. Do not exceed recommended dose.
If your doctor has also said 10mg twice a day, and if you took one 10mg pill in the morning then you can take one at 7pm.
In terms of how fast it acts ... please see the link below for reviews, you should find them useful.

I'm glad that you asked this question--I had it too. I'm taking it roughly 12 hours apart, but have been on it for 5 days and still feel hungry (absolutely no change in appetite). Everyone who commented (per the link provided by the other responder) seems to have felt less hunger right away. I may be a non-responder, and this drug may not work for me. I'm going to continue for at least one month and then review with my doctor. I think they want folks to continue for at least 12 weeks, but I am not sure I want to incur the additional cost/risk of side effects if my doc thinks it's likely Belviq will not work for me.

I've been on Belviq for a week now..and have lost 4 lbs. Yay me... problem is ... I'm so achey and fatigued it not even funny! Seriously... I have fibromyalgia and if that wasn't bad enough... this Belviq makes me feel like somebody beats me with a bag of rocks EVERYDAY and I am so danged tired I couldn't beat my way out of a paper bag !! And forget about concentrating on anything! Aren't diet pills supposed to make you have energy?? I don't think I'm going to be able to handle these much longer.
