I have been taking Belviq now for 9 days. I started off at 235 now I am at 228. I get headaches every now and then, I am really thirsty and my back hurt yesterday for about an hour. I sleep all night, but it feels more like I am blacked out, or maybe just sleeping harder than usual. I am focused more and have more energy to get things done. So far so good, let's see how it works next week.

I have been taking Belviq for 3 months and have lost 43 pounds. It definitely curbs my appetite, and I don’t crave carbs or sweets. I’m hoping it keeps working as I have a lot more to lose. I highly recommend Belviq!!

I have lost 45 lbs on this medication in 6 months. Starting weight 275 down to 228 this morning. This drug is helping me conquer a problem that I have struggled with my entire adult life. I am 61. I am walking 30-40 minutes 5 times a week and eating less with better choices. The only side effect that I think I have experienced is an increased sexual drive or maybe it's because I'm just excited about the weight loss.

I'm ending day 3 of my 15 day trial. The first day I experienced a burning sensation in my neck and shoulders and felt weird, like a buzzed feeling, but that was gone by day 2. Day 1 I felt full all day, day 2 and 3 I've felt like my normal self eating and think of food the way I've always done. Hopefully it will get better. Will update as I continue this journey.

I started it last Saturday , by Tuesday evening , I gained 5.4 pounds, had to stop it. I was watching what I eat and I am a tennis player. Could it be my thyroid medication , I take lithoviroxine .75 It did curb appetite a bit . I need to lose 20 pounds

I reviewed this drug in August of 2014, also with a 9 rating. I want to update my experience, though. I went from 180 to 140 in around 2 1/2 months. I kept it off completely for 7 months (even through winter and the holidays) after discontinuing belviq. However, I quit smoking 5 weeks ago, ordered about 5 lbs of gummy bears to help, and gained almost 10 lbs. I don't even care. It was worth it to stop smoking, and I started my Belviq again and it's working beautifully again. I want to add- my favorite part of this medication is how it eliminates my sugar and carb cravings, even alcohol, and instead makes me crave salads and protein. I don't know how it does this, but it's amazing stuff.

I had been taking Belviq for 4 days and lost a total of 4 pounds! Now 4 pounds may not seem like a lot, but for a person who has been struggling to lose weight ALL her life, that is a major milestone. I was sooo nervous when I got weighed, because of fear of being disappointed AGAIN. I have had no significant side effects other than dry mouth. I sleep GREAT at night, and I have even been more motivated to work out. I have incorporated more fruit and veggies into my diet as well as LOTS of water... I think that my appetite is still present (maybe because my metabolism is constant), but I do not overeat, and I have seen a reduction in the amount of carbs and sweets I crave.

I have been on Belviq for 4 days now and I have not lost any weight yet, but I do notice a huge difference when I sit down to eat. I am so much fuller even after the 3rd bite. My cravings during work hours have gone away, and I am able to go almost all day without pigging out. Mcdonalds is walking distance from my work as well. I am 5'6 and 188 LBS. I will keep yall updated.

I was a pretty girl who put on a lot of weight in College. I had resigned myself to being 5'7 216 pounds. Well after trying phentermine and Jenny and Lipozene I tried Belviq. Here are the number six months, forty two pounds and looking sexy I might add. Feeling good and running a mile twice a week with some golf. The 75.00 program makes it affordable to anybody that want to improve their health.

If you go to Belviq website there are two coupons so you can use one if you have insurance. it's $75 off.The other if you do not have health insurance or paying out of pocket. Or your insurance won't cover it all you have to pay only $75 a month. Check it out. I am only going to pay $75 a month.

I used to play ball and after finishing still ate like it was game time. Lost 46 pounds and still need to lose 30 more. This medicine has allowed me to change my relationship with food and beer. I now feel like my weight managed properly can get be back to a healthy weight. Good results few side effects.

I have been on Belviq since around the end of Aug. 2014. (I'm unable to do much exercising because I am disabled so I'm guessing this is why my story isn't like everyone else's.) I have lost around 25lbs. give or take since I started. NOT what I wished for BUT so much MORE than I could EVER do on my own. (especially with all of my medical problems). For this, I AM VERY HAPPY with this product and can only hope it WILL continue to work as it has, or if I'm lucky, even better! Either way it's been great!

Three weeks in I've lost 14lbs. My out of control appetite is in check, cravings for sweets have decreased. I highly recommend Belviq and so happy I found it. Only side effect so far is coughing. I can live with that.

So far, not too good. I've been on it for a week and a half and lost half a pound if I'm lucky! It doesn't seem to have altered my Appetite very much! The worst thing is that my whole body seems stiff and everything is an effort. I had mild arthritis before, now it is severe, and seems to have become life altering! What should I do?

I have been sixty pounds over my 5'7 210 pound body. Started this expedition eight months ago and lost 56 pounds. I must admit I do exercise three times a week swimming slow slaps. My health has taken a great step forward and the finish line is near. Try it or stay fat.

I never thought of myself as fat but chunky I might say. Well I am overweight at 5"5 198lbs. So I started on Belviq six months ago and felt it was pricey 155.00 after the 75.00 discount. Well I have lost 35 pounds and now get it for 75.00 per month as my insurance does not cover this easy to use medicine. I had a little dry mouth but otherwise nothing to really not as a bad side effect. My overall health is much improved as well as my confidence.

I have been on Belviq for a month now. The first ten days I gained 3 lbs and was panicked. My doctor told me to stick with it, and I am now down 8 lbs. But, more importantly, my blood pressure when I checked in with the doctor this week was 119/76, where it had always been in the neighborhood of 140/90. I find that I forget to eat, and I am sleeping better.

I am surprised at my 24lb loss in the last 3 months and 2 weeks to be honest. I thought Belviq was over priced and just another miracle pill. With a lower carb diet and less food intake alone (no "real" exercise) I am dropping weight very easily. This stuff is great!

My husband has honestly had a wonderful experience taking Belviq. He has steadily lost weight and is changing his relationship with food by simply eating smaller portions. No real side effects.

I started two days ago. Definitely notice a change in my hunger big time. I was told to take two a day but only have needed one. Haven't weighed yet. But I have been having headaches (tolerable) and feeling tired. I hope that passes soon.

I am a 52 year old male. I started Belviq on 1/20/15. I started at 231lbs. My main problem was no willpower and a love of food. While Belviq did not get rid of my hunger, it brought it within my "willpower zone". Assisted by a calorie counter app I have lost 25 lbs in 44 days. There were no adverse effects for me. I exercise 3x a week and really eat whatever I want, as long as I stay under my calorie target for the day. Belviq has given me the head start I needed to live a more healthy life.
