For Obesity: Today is my first day taking belviq. I am excited and hopeful this will help me lose weight. After having a child I'm finding it extremely hard to lose the weight on my own. I am 26 years old 5'7 and weighing in at 265... Wish me luck!

For Weight Loss: 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!

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I mostly decided to try this med because of all the positive reviews on this site. I'm sorry to say it isn't working for me. I thought it was for a few days, but then it just kinda stopped. I had NO side effects save for a foggy brain/slight headache for 2 days. I wanted so badly for this to work. I'm going to take the rest of my 15 day supply, but at $200 per refill, I don't know that I'll continue. It either works and works really well or it doesn't work at all or the side effects are too much to continue. Good luck to everyone out there.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I've been on this medication for 3 weeks. I started off with the 15 day free trial. I went to my doctor on the 20th day and had lost 12lbs. I experienced no major side effects other than some stiffness in my jaw for the first few days. No more midnight snacking.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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#

For Obesity: Hi all. I am 31, 5'9, 270 lbs. I've been on Belviq for 8 days. On the 1st day I experienced a slight headache. I've had no other side effects since then. After 4 days of Belviq, eating VERY healthy small portions & doing 40 min of intense aerobics, I had not lost a pound! I was discouraged & figured I wasn't a responder. My appetite wasn't suppressed either. Then I decided to take it on an empty stomach instead of with my meals. It works for me 100% now. Once I take it, I don't want anything to eat for about 3 hours. During that time, I just drink water. In the last 3 days I've lost 6 lbs! I'll update again once my 30 day subscription is up. Feeling HOPEFUL again!

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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):

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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."

For Obesity: I did have some significant side effects for the first two weeks but I took only one pill a day for that time to get used to it. I am up to two a day now (recommended dose) and the side effects are gone except for slight nausea once in a while. I have lost 6 lbs in about 3 weeks. That is quite good for me as I am not very active. Busy but sedentary life.

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