Reviews for Belviq to treat Weight Loss

"I've been on Belviq for about 6 weeks and am down 15lbs. This really works! I still feel tired most of the time and have dry mouth, but the other side effects (lethargy, back ache, etc...) were mostly gone after the first week and now have completely disappeared. I've been overweight most of my life & have tried many diets and herbals with no weight loss. This is really working for me. The only down side is the cost, my insurance doesn't cover it. (I downloaded the savings card from the website so my cost is 75 a month) and feeling tired most of the time."

"So far my experience has been temperamental. The first few days, and over whelming "full" feeling. And then as the days went on, the feelings went away. I did a small process of elimination and realized, I had a lesser 'full' feeling when I took Belviq with my other medications, and when I took it and ate later. So, now I have begun to take it an hour after I take my normal meds, and I take it with food.. its nice to feel full again :) just my little 2 cents!"

"Started B first in May at 208lb. Went though a bad break up and lost 8 pounds. Was not hungry at all could have been the B or being dumped. IDK. Ran out and did refill script and gained 8 pounds back maybe even one or two extra I'm now back on B and I do not really see a change in appetite I can go longer during the day without getting hungry but at the afternoon hours I'm starving and snacking on everything in sight you do get thirsty a lot which is encouraging to drink more water but I just want the weight gone so I'm still on the fence about b and I will continue to take it until this one runs out and maybe even into the new year if it doesn't work I'm getting the Lap Band and some lipo good luck all"

"I started taking Belviq in September of '14, so I am about three weeks shy of a full year. For the first two weeks I lost perhaps one pound and was getting discouraged - so I simply tried harder. By the way, I was three hundred pounds on the dot when I started. I now weigh 220. Yep, 80 pounds in less than a year, and I have reclaimed my life, my energy my looks, my sex drive and my optimistic outlook on life. DO NOT expect it to work on the front end, by which I mean it is NOT an appetite suppressant. But - and this is a huge but - if you cut your caloric intake in half, you will not experience hunger cravings afterword. That is the key. EAT LESS! Belviq will take care of the rest. By the way, I lost this weight without exercise."

"I travel a lot. I eat out a lot as a result. I have gained a lot of weight because of my job. I just don't have the time to exercise. My doctor got concerned when my BMI ballooned to 38. I started Belviq and I pay $75 per month. Cheaper than the other TV weight loss systems and I won't try the GNC stuff. Not safe! I lost 22 pounds this summer and so far I am pleased. No real side effects to report. For me, $75 is a lot per month but I was spending more on food! Lunch and dinner would cost me $20 a day, 4-5x per week."

"I started taking Belviq on July 15th. After the first 15 days free trial period, I lost 8 lbs. Before Belviq, I ate healthy foods but I felt hungry all the time and wound up snacking at night and even after a heavy dinner. Now I get full right away halfway through my meal and I don't snack at night any longer. To date, I've lost 15 lbs and counting! I had minor side effects - mostly tiredness. Been taking vitamin supplement and my tiredness has taper down. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!"

"I have only been talking Belviq for 6 and I have already lost 5.4 pounds. I only take one pill a day. I do feel a little fatigue but I can deal with that! Also, a little dry mouth but this increases my water intake. This medicine is an answer to prayers. I am never hungry and when I do eat, I eat less than 1/2 of my food."

"I started Belviq mid-May 2015 at about 234 lbs, and in the first month lost 7 pounds (eating 1500-2000 calories per day depending on the day). In the second month I lost 4 (again eating a similar diet). In the last month I have lost another 4 (same thing). Although this is good progress, I'm not sure it is worth the cost to continue. In the beginning there was some feeling of fullness more quickly when eating but that has diminished over time. I'm considering going off of it soon because I'd like to get pregnant. Also, at the 3-month mark, I'm right at the 5% recommended loss. Overall I don't feel like the drug is good or bad; I think it really depends on the individual."

"I have been using for almost 1 month using only one dose a day instead of two and have lost 10pds so far with only minimal exercise. I have had dry mouth at times and notice I cry more often when exposed to a sad situation. Overall I am very pleased with the decrease in appetite and weight loss. I am praying that I do not experience any major side effects...I still need to loose another 30 to 40pds."

"Gained weight from the depo shot. Went from 110 to 173 in 9 months! I'm 22 and only 5'2 & 1/2. I have done everything. Countless gym memberships, fad diets, personal trainers and programs like Weight Watcher and It Works. I went from 173 to 123 from tons of different methods over the course of a year and a half to two. Now, a few months ago the doctor put me back on Celexa. I went from 123 to 143 within a month and a half.. Not happy after all of my hard work. I've already worked my butt off to lose weight, lost what I wanted to and then gained 20 back from another medication. My doctor understood my frustration and started me on Belviq August 1st. August 7th.. I am down 5.4 pounds!!! I walk 2 miles a night, only drink water. Love it!!!!!"

"Began taking Belziq 2 months ago and I'm down 20 pounds! It does not make me feel jittery at all. It controls my appetite very well, making me feel full / satisfied after eating only small amounts of food. I'm not an exerciser, but feel certain that if I could walk about 30 minutes per day, the weight would come off faster - my knee just won't let me walk. My insurance does not pay for Belviq, but I am using the manufacturer's savings card and only paying $75 per month. Without the savings card, the cost is a bit over $200 per month!"

"I've been on Belviq for about 12 days. The side effects the first week were a little rough, severe dry mouth, body aches, dizziness, fatigue. and I actually gained 3lbs! But, if you can get through that, the 2nd week has improved. The side effects have mostly disappeared with the exception of the dry mouth. I have lost the inital 3lb gain and am down 3 more! I'm never hungry and have to remind myself to eat. When I do eat, I'm fuller faster! My insurance didn't cover, so I downloaded the 15 day free sample and the savings card from the website and so my cost will be $75 a month. I'm planning on staying on this pill & will keep you updated on the progress. I'm pretty excited now that I'm seeing the weight loss!"

"I have been taking for a month. I love this product. First couple of days, I did feel bad. I started with 2 pills a day, but had to drop back to one and side effects went away. It has officially been 28 days and I am down 13 pounds. I used the savings card I got from my doctor and got my 1st month supply for $75.00. Also just found out if I do mail-ordered scripts, I can save even more. My insurance will cover a lot of the cost. I love it and once again am excited about getting on a scale."

"I've been taking Belviq for 33 days and am quitting it today. During this period with proper diet and exercise I lost 4 pounds. The side effects have increased rather than decreasing. I'm extremely tired, weak and dizzy at times. My blood pressure is normally low but it is lower now. Given the 1500 calorie eating program I'm following and regular exercise I'm more concerned about the side effects as they're decreasing the quality of my life. I can do better than this on my own without the added risks of side effects."

"I'm 43 and have been at a stand still where my weight is concerned-I have reduced my sugar intake and all around carb intake-no longer really eat breads and I exercise about 4 days a week-wasn't really getting anywhere so I asked my doc to give me something as a jump start. I started Belviq on 7.14 and now 14 days later I am down 9 pounds and I feel GREAT! No side effects and I feel alert and in an Awesome mood! I'm picking up my first month supply and can't wait to see the result after being on it for three months. I'm 5'11 and started out at 215 and now at 206 and my plan is to get down to my goal weight of 175! I've never felt so great and energized and HOPEFUL!"

"Just started yesterday afternoon. Took a dose then and again this morning. No side effects at all, except that I already have very little appetite and have been in a good mood. I have to pay attention to other signs of needing nutrition now, like feeling a bit weak or lightheaded. I haven't had any hunger pains at all and am eating about 1/3 less food than I normally would."

"Have been taking for 2 months. Went to the Drs. This week have lost 16 lbs. very happy with the results. I have no side effects and it just helps you eat less. I started them when I broke my leg and was totally sedentary so it was a life saver. Still taking trying to loose 15 more lbs. I have tried other diet pills in the past and had to many reactions. I had lost 30lbs at weight watchers took two years then I quit smoking and gained most of it back. I am very happy not to have it take that long again. They are very expensive but they offer a discount on line 75.00 out of pocket. That's less than weight watchers and the gym a month. Worth trying"

"As a former gastric bypass patient, I know all to well about the on going struggle to loose weight. I've suffered many complications from this surgery and actually regret having it done. I've gained roughly 60 lbs back of this original 130 I lost. After talking with my doctor she recommended belviq. I started taking belviq June 29, 2015. I weighed 240 and today I weigh 229.2. So that a total loss of 11 lbs in 3 weeks. I've been walking AND running and have completely cut out fruit juices and eating rice every day. I will warn you that I didn't take the pill for 2 days due to being out of town, and I experiences the worst nausea and headaches. I actually became sissy in Walmart while shopping and had to sit down to gain my composure."

"The first day I took this I immediately got a mild headache, this headache lasted the whole time I took it. I have been on it for a week and stopped today. My heart beats hard, I have headaches, acid reflux, body aches, and weight gain. I am thinking maybe it raises my BP instead of lowering it and causing me to hold water. I have been the same weight on an extremely low carb diet which is not normal for me. Works for many, but not me."
