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.

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'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.

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.

I have been on Belviq for one week and have lost 4 lbs. I had a mild headache the very first day and felt a little lightheaded for 3 days, but nothing severe or that I couldn't handle. I just decided not to drive, but now at 1 week I have no negative symptoms. It's definitely working, as I don't have hunger pains and have to look at the clock to make sure I do eat something. My doctor also gave me a menu to follow and I just use it as a guideline. I don't feel like I miss out on anything! I will send an update.

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.

I began taking Belviq on October 17, 2014 and have been on it for 3 weeks now. I have currently lost 15.5 lbs in 3 weeks. I have had absolutely no negative symptoms and actually had to start halving the pill and only taking it in the morning, because taking it twice a day made me not able to eat anything at all. I still have 43 lbs to go for my goal weight. I am hoping to lose another 5 lbs in the next week. I am eating less, and what I am eating is healthy foods. I've almost gone on an Atkins diet because I've cut out all sugars and starches without even trying. I also am going to the gym 3 times a week and speed walking on a treadmill. I will begin going more frequently to the gym now, as I have shed a few pounds that has motivated me.

I've been on Belviq since 10/17 and I lost 10 lbs so far. I started on the sample from the doc. My insurance, UHC, approved it right away. It costs $25. I am supposed to take two pills a day, but I only take 1. Initially I had a headache for 2 or 3 days and I took Excedrin or Tylenol for relief. Anyway, I don't have many side effects now. I am really tired by the end of the day and I am usually asleep by 9 pm and I sleep like a baby. I typically have sleep problems and have taken Ambien periodically. I have no need for that now. I think I would have lost more weight, but it took a minute to figure how to work out my eating plan. I try not to eat carbs at night. If I eat carbs, it will be once a day and I don't over indulge.

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.

Big boned latin lady 5'1 188 pounds. One year and 51pounds gone. No more yo yo diets or cravings just feel good. Results good blood work and my doc likes the results. I like the lack of side effects as these always concern me. Sleep well and just alittle dry mouth the first month. Highly recommend you become the new you now.

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.
