"I was on Belviq for a while and it was really good it helped me loose over 70 lbs. but after the 5 month of being on it it started to make me dizzy, sleepy, tired, confused, and a little depressed. It also made me it really hard for me to concentrate. The medication was no longer working for me, I had an incredibly hard time moving. I constantly felt thrown out of balance and almost fell several times. I had to stop taking it, good news though the medication didn't cause any type of discontinuation syndrom so once I was off of it I felt so much better."

"48 year old guy 6'1 287 pounds high bp,ache joints. I got overweight after I got married and tried to work more then I should. When I travel that expense account was way to easy to eat too much. Started Belviq July 2014 and now weigh 209 pounds. I got 15 more to go but feel good and healthy. My eating habits have changed as I eat more vegetables and less pasta. My exercise is riding the bike indoors and outdoors weather permitting. Glad to feel better with the exception of a little headache this works fine."

"First of all let me start by saying I am extremely excited of the possibility of losing weight, but it just has not happened as of yet. I started Belviq a week ago and yes, I have exercised but I gained three pounds. I can't say it was totally me or the medicine so, I am going to watch everything closer this week. I took my students on a trip so we were walking up hill, down hill and on flat land for at least 10 hours a day. I hit well over 30,000 steps a day. The kicker is we also ate 3x a day for five days. I tried to modify my lunch by eating salads and smoothies only, but dinners were usually a little unhealthy with things like: pasta,fried chicken , pizza, etc... I did eat it although I tried to eat smaller portions. Help!!!"

"I read hundreds of reviews, talked to my doctor about belviq. He was very thorough with making sure I was healthy enough to take the med. I started day 1 yesterday (5/20/15). Within 2 hours my appetite was completely gone. I was extremely nauseous. I was expecting to be tired but not to the point of feeling so "drugged and intoxicated" that I couldn't even barely move with out the room spinning and vomiting. I had severe anxiety with this experience. I am not taking another dose. I will just be more self disciplined to eat right and exercise more. In my opinion, anything that makes you feel so badly can't be healthy for your body. I very happy for those that it worked for!!"

"I started 5/14/15 and after schpeel from my doc about 15% experience headaches I prepared myself for a huge headache by noon. I took at 8am, no headache by noon or after..I was really tired and body aches but could be from the cold I had as well. Able to function all day though. My weight Thursday was 226.7 as of Saturday am my weight is 224.5. I am learning my hunger is mental and not physical. My mental or craving are still present but not actually feeling hungry so I can stop at a few bites because nothing really tastes as good as it does in my "hungry mind". So I'm definitely becoming aware of my triggers. Can't wait to see my results after 1mo."

"I just started belviq today I'm a 39 yr old diabetic woman and struggle with my weight all of my life but it got worse after having my first of 3 kids, it really became harder. I was a little scared as I have never taken diet pills before so I'm extremely nervous. But after reading most of the reviews took some of the edge off. I'm at 317 lbs and I'm so excited to see my results, headed for the gym now, I will keep you updated..."

"I have been on Belviq for a month now, and I have lost 10 pounds!! My clothes are starting to feel lose. And I love it!! Belviq does make me sleepy and I have dry mouth... But hey that makes me drink more water all day. It is pricey but worth it. I will update by my third month."

"I started taking Belviq a week ago and I've already lost 6 pounds. The first day I took it I noticed a difference, my appetite had decreased. I'm no longer craving sweets. I haven't started to excerise yet but plan to start soon. I'm excited about my Belviq journey."

"After thirty years of being overweigh/fat I am really amzed. No more diet supplements or Adkins diets etc. Long short story 12 months 44 pounds feel great. Had a little joint pain and dry mouth but that was ok and went away in a week. I now walk four times a week eat low carbs but occasionally splurge with pizza one slice generally. Food is under my control and I feel great on all counts. Amazing for a 55 year old used to be fat lady !!!!!"

"I've been on it for 10 days, and have gained 5 pounds. I feel that my appetite has decreased, but I've experienced dizziness and fatigue. I'm disappointed, as I really want this to work. I'm happy, though, for all those who have been successful!"

"Last year I had my thyroid removed and in less than a year I went from 130 to 155. I was devastated with the rapid weight gain. 21 days ago I started on Belviq and I'm proud to say, I'm down to 142 lbs. I still have 17 lbs to go to be at my goal weight. This year, I am celebrating a milestone birthday and I really don't want to feel overweight. Thanks to Belviq, I think I will meet my goal by 6 months. I no longer have food cravings, or hunger pains. I experienced slight headaches at first and dry mouth, and sleepiness, but it's gone now. I also get cold easily. I eat 3 light meals a day and I exercise 3 to 4 times a week."

"I've been on Belviq for months. I've had no side effects. I started at 250 and am currently about 218. I didn't want much in terms of food in the beginning but I find myself eating more now. Maybe it's because I've added a daily 3 mile walk. Maybe I'm just hitting a plateau. But I'm not gaining. Happy to be down 30 but would like another 50. Slow and steady! But feel much better!"

"I have been on this medication for about a month and a half and have not lost one pound. I drink water and have even eaten healthy. The only thing this medicine does is help me sleep better. It does not curve my appetite at all. I will go back to phentermine, it actually works. I do not recommend this medication."

"I've been on Belviq for almost 2 weeks. I read all the reviews here before I started, hoping to get a better idea of what it's like. The most important thing I want to stress is this pill works but only if you put the effort into eating healthy and gradually add exercise. By about the 8th day I really noticed my appetite decreasing. My mood is way better and the tiredness I felt the first week is gone. I tried one pill a day but felt like it works better with two. I'm on day 12 and down 10 pounds. Do your research, talk to your Dr. It doesn't have phentermine. It seems to work like an SSRI except it's hitting an area that controls hunger. I sleep better, feel better, and would recommend Belviq to change your relationship with food!"

"I've been on belviq now for 46 days. My weight was 168 now I'm down to 154. My side effects are headaches(some days)and at times my upper body gets real hot! I gained weight from hypothyroidism. My normal weight is 142-145. I only take one pill a day. And it really crushes my appetite. But I do eat clean and it don't take much to get me full. I'm satisfied with the pill. It's the only thing that helped me to get my weight back under control. It is very difficult to lose weight when u have thyroid problems"

"I was on Belviq for almost a month and couldn't handle the side effects. I did loose 4 pounds but that could also be due to diet and exercise not so much the Belviq. It made me so groggy and just exhausted. I could literally sleep all day if I could. Belviq was not for me."

"I've had zero side effects. The fist change I noticed is my mood dramatically improved. My friends, family & coworkers have all noticed the change. For the first time in forever I feel normal. I'm not mad at the world. I wake up happy. As for my weight loss it's taken several months but I finally feel I'm on a roll. I'm only down 25lbs but in the last couple months the scales are doing down. Food it not a priority in my life anymore. As I sit here there is a king sized Kit Kat sitting on my nightstand where it's been for weeks since my roommate gave it to me. That never would be the cast in the past. I have more energy and have even lost a pants size. I will do whatever it takes to stay on this medicine."
