It may do. Belviq is a prescription medicine so you will need to discuss this with your doctor.

My doctor prescribed it & I start tomorrow. I was just wondering if anyone has the same problem and if Belviq works.

I'm hypothyroid as well. I actually gained nearly 60 lbs before being diagnosed and treated. Even still, I've had a hard time getting off what I gained despite treatment -- I'm on 140 mcgs of levothyroxine. Belviq has worked for me. I've lost 14 pounds in 6 weeks and hoping that the rest of the weight will come off as easily. Surprisingly, it hasn't been a painful struggle to lose the weight.

I'd say it's worth a shot!

do you take your levothyroxine at the same time you take your belviq in the morning ?

I've had thyroid disease, including cancer and the side effects of Bekviq are exactly the symptoms if thyroid issues, especially hypo. I would never put a drug like this into my body. I finally lost weight on a whole foods/clean foods diet. Non-GMO, gluten free & paleo. Only med I take now is desiccated thyroid. I save money on food by shopping farmers markets and since I don't need all those med anymore. free discount card
