For Weight Loss: 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

For Obesity: Started the trial exactly 2 weeks ago. Weighed in at 305, 5'9" I am at my heaviest weight, even heavier (20#!!) Than being 9 months pregnant. First week I lost 8#, it makes me super tired, a little crabby, and I get a small headache. This week I went down to 1 pill a day hoping it wouldn't make me exhausted. Still tired and only lost 2.5# but also on my monthly this week. Ugh. Trial is up and I am not sure I want to fork over the $75 each refill. I'm conflicted. So yes it helps curb appetite and helped me lose over 10#! But I'm also drinking a ton of water and working out 3 days a week.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I started Belviq 8 days ago. I did experience dizziness, headaches and tiredness for the first few days but now I'm back to normal and down 8.5 pounds! What's even better is that not only is my appetite gone, I also get full very quickly so even when I'm not eating as healthy, I only get between 1/4 and 1/2 (if even), which means I still lose weight.

For Obesity: I started on Belviq 2 weeks ago and I am down 26 lbs. I started at 383 and am down to 357. I assume much of my wt loss (20 lbs) the first week was water wt as I was eating fast food every day. I also am using my fitness pal to help count my calories. I have also begun to walk as a form of excercise. After going out to eat this past weekend for a celebration I brought home 1/2 my meal which I have never done in my entire life. I have lost wt on my own in the past, but felt due to depression and being in a hole I needed some help this time. I also am only taking one 10 mg pill a day instead of the 10 mg 2x daily. I am not hungry and the pills are expensive so if one pill a day is working this is what I will continue on.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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.

Review by Anonymous:

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I have been on this medication for a month and I have lost 6lbs. You may think that is not much, but it is better than gaining 2 or 3 lbs here or there. I had actually only taken 1 pill a day instead of the 2 pills a day the first month. Now that I am on my second month, I am taking the two a day and waiting on the results for next month.

For Weight Loss: 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!

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I've been on Belviq for 3 weeks and initially experienced dizziness for 4 days. That's gone away and I feel great. I have more energy and sleep better. My insurance won't cover Belviq until I tried 2 other weight loss meds, so I'm grateful for the help with the $75 card from Belviq. I've been able to control my eating and resist temptations. And I'm down 14lbs! LOVE BELVIQ!

For Weight Loss: 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?

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: I've been on Belviq for one month. I've lost 29.5 lbs, and I'm thrilled. I've also stuck to a 1500 calorie diet. The biggest thing it did for me was take away the thought of cravings. I would pay any amount of money to have these kind of results.

For Weight Loss: 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!
