It has been three weeks and I am down 8 pounds. I wish I knew about Belviq sooner. I feel better overall and my attitude towards food has changed. I eat much smaller portions because I feel full very quickly. I can't wait to continue this journey!

I have been on belviq for two weeks and am down seven pounds. I'm excited to see how much I can lose. I have struggled with weight off and on over the years but I have four kids and have not paid much attention to my own health. The side effects are minimal. I think it is pricey but it works and that makes it worth it.

I have been on Belviq for over a year and have been able to finally control what I eat. I was 206 pounds and am now down 164 pounds. I am sorry I did not try it sooner as my overall health has gotten better from cholesterol, blood sugar and sleep. My doctor says I will see my ache knees feel better after another 15 pounds.He says most of his patients are good dieters but bad exercisers for the most part. Just happy to get better health.

Aloha! I am a 41 year old female. I started taking Belviq less than a week ago and I am down 4 pounds already! It would have taken me a month to lose this before. Very minimal side effects that passed after day 2. If you are considering this, give it a try! It is a miracle!

I have been on a Belviq since 1/1/2015 and was not losing any weight. I went to my doctor on 1/31/2015 and she said I did lose 7lbs. I was shocked Because when we'd weigh in at work weekly I wasn't seeing high numbers. My doctor says slow and steady wins the race. I guess she is right! As of this Monday I am down from 182 to 171 and couldn't be happier. Love the results.

26yr old mom of four. Started Belviq a week and a half ago lost 13lbs. Only side effect headache first couple of days and dry mouth but it subsides. So glad I tried the 14 day trial. I will be purchasing after trial.

I've only taken Belviq for 3 days but have had wonderful results already! I've lost 5 lbs. My doctor started me out slowly taking it only in the mornings for the first 3 days just to ensure my body could tolerate it. Tonight I will also begin to take it in the evenings. I have had a bit of a dry mouth but I don't mind, I just need to drink more water. I did stop drinking soda, and cut back on some of my calories. Tomorrow I start at my gym, so it will be interesting to see if I lose more weight or gain muscle. I don't usually tolerate meds very well, so I'm really happy that this seems to be working for me so far. I'll post another update as I get further along. My insurance doesn't cover weightloss medicine, but the discount card helps.

Started 1-1-2015. Down 15 lbs in 25 days. Counting calories which has been super easy. Sleeping better. A little dry mouth but more water is a good thing. Only take 1 pill a day. No exercise yet. Will add walking on treadmill 2-1-2015.

I started this medication over 2 weeks ago and I have lost 12lbs. The only side effects I've experienced are occasional headaches here and there, but Advil cleared that up. Changed my diet and definitely not having cravings any more, so much that my boyfriend bought me a donut and I told him no thanks! Super proud of myself. Can't wait to see my results after a couple of months, have to lose 40 lbs in total.

I just finished the free 2 week trial and lost 8 pounds! I couldn't believe it. I hadn't excerised either but will start incorporating it in a few times a week. Dr. prescribed me a 3 month supply, my insurance doesn't cover but the savings card from Belviq helps. I'll try one month and see from there.

Belviq, by day 7, has already changed my world. I am already feeling better, less hungry, and motivated to lose my extra 50+ lbs of weight. You simply MUST give this med a try!!!

41 year old male. Started at 240 on 6/14/2014. Now 190 on 1/16/2015. Blood Pressure down to normal. This is the first medicine that has kept me to my diet! Tried every supplement on the market. This is the only one that actually curbed my appetite. No more late night eating. That was my biggest problem. Exercise a must.

Can't adequately give enough praise to Belviq. My friend said try it there's a free coupon. Other stories said it doesn't work, don't bother. Lowered my expectations. Used it for two weeks, lost ten pounds and quit smoking. Good grief! What? Used to smoke 2-packs a day for 25 years. Tried other smoking medications but felt like hell so quit those but not smoking. Belviq and phentermine makes me feel 20 again. I drink more water. It's over a year later. Without Belviq? I'd still be smoking and suffering through weird food diets. I do anything I want and enjoy life all day long with this, every day. No willpower needed. Don't get hungry, don't miss smokes, and no exercise necessary. Haha. Miracle. Grateful.

I'm a 54 yo woman, 5' 4". 155lbs at start. I am in awe. Been on Belviq for 11 days. First time ever that I feel completely confident that I won't binge or overeat. I have NO side effects, eating 3 meals a day, no desire to over eat....feel full after small meal. Its a complete miracle for me so far. I could so this forever! Not sure how it is working but I love it! Trust that I can even eat a forbidden food in small amount. Its the BEST!

I tried taking it for a total of 5 days and was so dizzy I was bouncing off the walls. I felt very lethargic and couldn't even function. I'd wake up in the morning feeling like I was 90 with all the aches and pains. And worst of all, it didn't do anything to curb my appetite! In fact, it made me hungrier! I went back to my old buddy, Phentermine.

I am on Belviq about 2 months now, I started at 180lbs because I got side effects from Nexium (acid reflux medication) gained more 10lbs in a month. My PCP was willing to prescribe weight loss medication. I decided to try Belviq because side effects less than Phentermine. So far I lost about 10lbs. No major side effects and occasionally I felt a dizziness, dry mouth for 1 week. My craving significantly reduce, I snack less better meals. I monitored my diets and at least exercise.

I've been on Belviq for a week and notice the difference already. I can fit a pair of jeans that I had difficulty buttoning 2 weeks ago. I eat 2 to 3 times a day and in small portions. I'm not hungry most of the time. I have experienced some of the minor side effects...headaches, constipation, and dry mouth. The plus on that is I'm drinking a lot more water and completely staying away from juices and soda.

This works great! I tried the 15 day free trail and I lost three pounds. Wow that is great for me, but here is the sad part I went to get it filled and found out that my insurer doesn't cover it and I cant afford it. So best wishes to anyone that try it. I just wish it didn't cost so much.

Been on Belviq for 2 weeks, was 240lbs and now 218lbs. I'm very pleased. Constipation only side effect. For those with no insurance, the savings card can get you $75.00 off. Good luck to all you ladies who are trying to reach goal.

Belviq is so amazing! I'm so happy I did my research on this medicine and suggested it to my doctor. On Sunday 12/28/14 I weighed in at 359lbs. I began taking the pills that same morning. I have been eating a low calorie diet (healthy foods) and I've exercised 2 days already. I have had bad foods here and there but really the medicine makes me not want bad foods anymore or feel hungry as well as make me fuller faster. I'm supposed to weigh in on Sunday 1/4/14 but today I decided to take a sneak peak and I'm already down 4 lbs! That's 4 lbs in 5 days. I'm so happy and excited that it's working. If you have trouble with losing weight you should try Belviq, it's a miracle!

Best weight loss medicine ever! 29 pounds in 4 months and 6 pounds more to reach my goal weight. No food cravings and I have cut sugar out of my diet which for me is the key. 5'4 woman currently at 145 pounds. Blue Cross Blue Shield covered this medication for me except for the $5.00 co-pay. Best wishes to everyone!

I started using Belviq this May and have seen some nice gradual weight loss. The total weight loss is 27.35 pounds and I am pretty happy with that overall. Starting weight was 203 pounds 5"6 and now I can start to exercise a little bit. My side effects were very minor just dry mouth and I was a little tired early on. This medicine has helped all my statistics for the better and that is more important to me and my doctor. Good luck as I will lose the the other 30 pond over the next eight months.
