For Weight Loss: 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!

For Weight Loss: 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!

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: Not much weight loss but I lost my craving for cigarettes. Apparently works for stopping smoking. Just have to convince my doc to let me stay on it.

For Weight Loss: 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.

For Obesity: Just a 54 year old 5'9 244 pound guy. I was considering by pass and was advised by a friend that the surgery is not the answer. Well 13 months later I shed forty nine pounds and feel pretty great. I am up to walking two miles a week and please don't laugh. No big side effects except a little constipation. My doctor is now a believer that this can help. Wish me luck.

For Weight Loss: 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!

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: 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.

For Obesity: Absolutely impressed by this medication! After having two babies in a row and gained 70 pounds it%u2019s been a struggle to get the weight loss off. I lost weight on my own prior to Belviq, but I was stuck in a horrible plateau and could not move. I started Belviq at 205lbs September 21, 2014 three weeks so far I am down to 190 total of 15 pounds. So excited! I finally found something that works for me. My side effects lasted for a few days, mild headache, and nausea. Now, I just feel great all the time and super motivated to stay on track. My carb cravings are minimal and I am honestly not hungry. Food now is just something I need to nourish me not to obsess about. I am still healthy staying within my calorie range my using My Fitness Pal.
