... Where can I obtain a prescription for this product? Thanks
Stuart, most doctors are lazy. If they're not familiar with a specific med they don't want to take the time to research it. It's just easier to say no. Find yourself another doctor. I had absolutely no trouble getting a prescription from my internist; in fact she thought it would be an excellent drug for me with minimal risks. Good luck.
Not sure if anyone answered your question and this was posted 20 days ago. Are you able to change physicians? My insurance provider allowed me this option and I researched doctors, particularly younger than the one I previously had. He refused, REFUSED to give diet pills no matter how much I researched. So, I went and changed to a doctor that was a teaching doctor and he said that he would have to monitor my health for a year while I was on Belviq. If you are able to change a doctor, great! If not, talk to a pharmacist or if there is another doctor with in the building that works with yours, see if you can make an appointment with that doctor. Also, it may help if you talk to the nurse for that doctor.
Another suggestion is do research on Belviq and gather up all the info that goes with it, side effects, and tell your doctor it is not PHEN-PHEN. It is Lorcaserin (10mg) and you should stay on it if you are able to lose 12 pounds by 3 months. If you are not, then it is strongly recommended that you do not stay on it. It carries a slight risk of addiction has a low grade narcotic in it.
I hope this gets to you.

I would like to try the prescription Belviq but it's so hard to find a doctor that will let you try?
