Review by Never Better Mount Laurel,Nj (taken for 6 months to 1 year):

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.

It has been three weeks and I am down 8 pounds. I wish I knew about Belviq sooner. I feel better overall and my attitude towards food has changed. I eat much smaller portions because I feel full very quickly. I can't wait to continue this journey!

I have been on belviq for two weeks and am down seven pounds. I'm excited to see how much I can lose. I have struggled with weight off and on over the years but I have four kids and have not paid much attention to my own health. The side effects are minimal. I think it is pricey but it works and that makes it worth it.

I have been on Belviq for over a year and have been able to finally control what I eat. I was 206 pounds and am now down 164 pounds. I am sorry I did not try it sooner as my overall health has gotten better from cholesterol, blood sugar and sleep. My doctor says I will see my ache knees feel better after another 15 pounds.He says most of his patients are good dieters but bad exercisers for the most part. Just happy to get better health.

Aloha! I am a 41 year old female. I started taking Belviq less than a week ago and I am down 4 pounds already! It would have taken me a month to lose this before. Very minimal side effects that passed after day 2. If you are considering this, give it a try! It is a miracle!

This is my third day on Belviq and I started off at 244 pounds. Today I weighed 242lbs. I am incorporating exercise today and I bet by next Monday I will be down at least 7 pounds. Belviq does curve your appetite but you also have to have will-power not to eat just because you see food. Sometimes you don't have to be hungry to want food. My goal is to be down 70 pounds by July! The only side effect that I have experienced so far was headaches and I just popped an ibuprofen and they are gone! May God help everyone on Belviq achieve their healthy goal!

I have been on a Belviq since 1/1/2015 and was not losing any weight. I went to my doctor on 1/31/2015 and she said I did lose 7lbs. I was shocked Because when we'd weigh in at work weekly I wasn't seeing high numbers. My doctor says slow and steady wins the race. I guess she is right! As of this Monday I am down from 182 to 171 and couldn't be happier. Love the results.

I've only taken Belviq for 3 days but have had wonderful results already! I've lost 5 lbs. My doctor started me out slowly taking it only in the mornings for the first 3 days just to ensure my body could tolerate it. Tonight I will also begin to take it in the evenings. I have had a bit of a dry mouth but I don't mind, I just need to drink more water. I did stop drinking soda, and cut back on some of my calories. Tomorrow I start at my gym, so it will be interesting to see if I lose more weight or gain muscle. I don't usually tolerate meds very well, so I'm really happy that this seems to be working for me so far. I'll post another update as I get further along. My insurance doesn't cover weightloss medicine, but the discount card helps.

Started 1-1-2015. Down 15 lbs in 25 days. Counting calories which has been super easy. Sleeping better. A little dry mouth but more water is a good thing. Only take 1 pill a day. No exercise yet. Will add walking on treadmill 2-1-2015.

I started this medication over 2 weeks ago and I have lost 12lbs. The only side effects I've experienced are occasional headaches here and there, but Advil cleared that up. Changed my diet and definitely not having cravings any more, so much that my boyfriend bought me a donut and I told him no thanks! Super proud of myself. Can't wait to see my results after a couple of months, have to lose 40 lbs in total.

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!!!

I thought at first this was not working, but I realized it was working, but had to pay more attention to my body. I still get hungry (but not as often or as quickly after meals), so I would eat a healthy snack or meal. It helps me eat smaller portions and I now feel satisfied faster, but you must pay attention to your hunger and stop eating when you no longer feel hungry or you will overeat, which makes me feel sick. A couple times of that and you will learn! Slow but steady weight loss, about 1 lb. a week. Side effects went away after 2 weeks.

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.

Can't adequately give enough praise to Belviq. My friend said try it there's a free coupon. Other stories said it doesn't work, don't bother. Lowered my expectations. Used it for two weeks, lost ten pounds and quit smoking. Good grief! What? Used to smoke 2-packs a day for 25 years. Tried other smoking medications but felt like hell so quit those but not smoking. Belviq and phentermine makes me feel 20 again. I drink more water. It's over a year later. Without Belviq? I'd still be smoking and suffering through weird food diets. I do anything I want and enjoy life all day long with this, every day. No willpower needed. Don't get hungry, don't miss smokes, and no exercise necessary. Haha. Miracle. Grateful.

I'm a 54 yo woman, 5' 4". 155lbs at start. I am in awe. Been on Belviq for 11 days. First time ever that I feel completely confident that I won't binge or overeat. I have NO side effects, eating 3 meals a day, no desire to over eat....feel full after small meal. Its a complete miracle for me so far. I could so this forever! Not sure how it is working but I love it! Trust that I can even eat a forbidden food in small amount. Its the BEST!

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 am on Belviq about 2 months now, I started at 180lbs because I got side effects from Nexium (acid reflux medication) gained more 10lbs in a month. My PCP was willing to prescribe weight loss medication. I decided to try Belviq because side effects less than Phentermine. So far I lost about 10lbs. No major side effects and occasionally I felt a dizziness, dry mouth for 1 week. My craving significantly reduce, I snack less better meals. I monitored my diets and at least exercise.
