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!

Have been taking Belviq for three weeks and I've lost six pounds! This is awesome because I've been stuck at the same weight for about a year, never budging even a pound! I suffered an ankle injury and the resulting ankle surgery and was unable to restart Spinning classes until recently. I can't wait to see what happens now that I am mobile again!

Started my trial yesterday, and experienced the headache, which was quickly resolved by OTC medication. I am a night shift nurse, and did not feel hungry at all through my shift. Here's hoping its all it says it is.

The facts pretty simple 34 pounds six months. Side effects dry mouth and no cravings. 5'5 188 pound curvy woman. Feel like I have more energy to chase my husband and kids. I like it as it gives me power over my food compulsion. No insurance for now but good health is not free.

Been one week and down 7lbs... I have a slight headache but not sure if it is because my desire for diet coke (reducing caffeine intake) and food has reduced greatly! Headaches relieved by ibuprofen. Sometimes I look at the clock and its 1-2 hours after normal meal time! I used to be the first (or second) person at our work cafe for every meal! I will repost after a month. Love the results so far. I have willpower and not so food obsessed!

I have been on Belviq for 21 days and have lost 20lbs. I was fortunate not to experience any side effects. My constant urge to eat was subsided almost immediately. I find that I have to make myself eat most days. I have lost 14 inches total so far and can't wait to see how much more I lose. This medicine has been a blessing for me. Go to the DR this week for my first checkup and am actually looking forward to getting on the scale!

I have been talking Belviq for one week and I've already lost 3lbs. The headaches lasted the days. I eat less and I walk for 30 minutes everyday.

It works. I have lost 10 pounds so far. Starting week 4. I could have lost more if I could get my love of beer under control. First few days were tough, serious nausea in the morning after taking the pill, also felt very mild depressing and fatigue. Subsided in 2-3 days. Feel no side-effects now. I still have an appetite but not as much prior to starting Belviq. Breakfast: fruit. Lunch: small sandwich or salad (easily turn away from chips or sweets). Snack: Apple. Dinner: Salad or small meal. Staying under 1800 calories per day. I've been keeping a food journal which has been eye-opening how many calories are in my daily intake. I feel like this will work for me but will be a long process.

I am a 51 yr old female 6'0 tall and my weight has really ballooned in the last five years. I started on the trial, I wanted to make sure it would work for me before I spent alot of money. I had the headache and body aches the first two days, and I am sticking to a high protein diet as well. I have lost 13 lbs the first two weeks! I am pretty good at dieting but have not been able to stick to anything for a long time. My food cravings are totally gone! I still have an occasional headache, but that is ok I can't wait for a year to go by I really feel like this is going to work!

Had trouble losing weight for years. Belviq has been really helpful. Haven't experienced any side effects except a mild headache first couple of day. Already feeling the difference in both shedding pounds and sleeping better.

I took one tablet in the morning and I was fine until the afternoon. In the afternoon I had a debilitating headache and could not function. The pain spread to the back of my neck. I could hardly move. Then to top it all off, I started feeling nauseous. I lied down on the couch and stay still but I still threw up.

I started taking Belviq on the 2nd of October 2014 weighing in at 216 at 5"5. After taking Belviq the 1st day I had slight headache after that I just was able to sleep better. Today I currently weight 209!! In 5 days I have lost 7 lbs so I am assuming I'm a responder. I didn't have to pay out of pocket yet since I had the free trial they accidentally gave me 1 free month. So I'll update you after one month. I'm excited#

I love it. Remember not everything is right for everybody we all have different bodies. I can't take anything I always have bad side effects I am 3 days in now I noticed I can go without snacking all day and night because for some reason I'm hungry all the time and by the 3rd day I feel different in a good way. I'm going to wait until my 7th day to weigh myself, I just feel more positive or something its hard to explain I guess like I have some hope now. I weigh 206 now I want to be back to my normal weight of 130 and I have a feeling I may be able to do that now since now I can pass on the carbs without craving them all the time. I hope that other people that feel like there is no hope and feel like a prisoner in your body can use this also.

My first day on Belviq. 43 yo male - 243lbs. I had a freaky illness about 4 years ago that shook me to my core. Suffered from severe anxiety after the whole ordeal. My doc put my on Zoloft to combat the anxiety (did the trick) but I gained 25 pounds in the process. Finally stopped Zoloft but haven't been able to shed the weight despite running 3 marathons & eating well. Recently approached my doc about Belviq (after great reviews on this site). After some blood tests, she prescribed it. I am sensitive to meds so I was quite nervous popping the first pill. Pretty quickly I felt a happy, a little revved-up and no much of an appetite. Stayed that way all day. No headache or dizziness so far. Fingers-crossed this is going to work.

Review by tonifromtx (taken for less than 1 month):

I started taking Belviq 4 days ago. I accomplished absolutely nothing over the weekend. I had a consistent headache and lethargy. I've been taking Advil for the headaches and it helps. On day 3 I started experiencing blurry vision. I'm going to ride this out for a couple of weeks because of how well this controls my tendency to over eat. I am in a very high stress industry and tend to sleep far less than I should. I'm 46, 5' 2" and 184 I have been a yoyo all my life. A year ago I was cross-fitting 6 days a week and 40 lbs lighter. I hurt my shoulder and began over eating once again. So all that to say I am loving how this "helps" me control that tendency. I just hope the side effects described above subside a little.

Nothing for 10 days or so, then no appetite at all. Started exercising, feeling better about myself (it's a mood enhancer), and lost 20 pounds in 35 days. Side effects are dry mouth, slight forgetfulness and possibly some tinnitus, but that's it. Really working well for me! Get the free trial from Belviq then their discount card after that. I love the minor side effects, Phentermine and Topamax were just awful, Topamax the worst. Phentermine is great if you want to feel like a character in "Breaking Bad."

This is a waste of money. Did not curb my appetite nor did it make me feel full.

I am an active practice registered nurse who has packed on the pounds slowly, year after year. I am in my 4 th month of taking Belviq. I am down 32 pounds. It comes off slowly, mainly by feeling full faster. I am able to put my fork down now, do not feel out of control eating. It has greatly diminished night snacking. When I initially took it, had some mild headache and tiredness. Side effects were gone after 2 weeks. I am much more active, eating a much healthier diet. I am not obsessing over food or the lack of it. You do have to change habits, diet and exercise, but Belviq makes it possible to do it.
