There is no way we can know what is enough or if your doctor made a mistake. They spend years learning to be a doctor and we have to assume they get it right more often than not.
From this site: https://www.drugs.com/belviq.html
Just because it says the usual dose is... does not mean the only dose. Wait and see as per the instructions below.
"The usual dose of Belviq is 1 tablet 2 times each day. Follow your doctor's instructions.
You may take Belviq with or without food.
You should lose at least 5% of your starting weight during the first 12 weeks of taking Belviq and eating a low calorie diet. Tell your doctor if you do not lose at least 5% of your starting weight after taking the medication for 12 weeks.
Belviq is only part of a complete program of treatment that also includes diet, exercise, weight control, and possibly testing your blood sugar. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely."
So buy a set of those cheap digital scales and just get into the habit of weighing yourself (in your underware) each day at the same time (in the morning is good) and just record it in a note pad or diary (like me) and so you have a beginning point and can follow trends in your weight loss regime over time. This will help your doctor too.
Good luck with it all. :)
