Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I started off taking one pill a day for 6 days then started taking two a day and this is day 3 with the two pills. I have experienced miner side effects but nothing I'm too concerned with. The side effects that I have experienced since taking this drug was minor back pain, my left eye kept twitching, and a little restlessness last night which I've had all these before randomly before this medicine so I'm not that concerned but one side effect I haven't had before this medication is I'm now having a harder time going pee and feel like I have to go. No pain though."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I have been taking this for 5 days. I read all the reviews and I was extremely concerned. I was prescribed two 10 mg daily and for the first 5 days I only started with one pill in the mornings and I haven't had any symptoms other than I wasn't very hungry some days. I haven't lost any weight yet started at 176 but today weighed 180 I heard this pill works for slow results. I am a bodybuilder/power lifter and I actually gained 2 pounds but I think that might be muscle. I am going to start doing more cardio to give my weight loss program a boost to success. I suggest eating more protein and fruits and veggies with cardio/weight lifting. That will help give you the best results. I'm starting the two 10 mg and I will be back to review in a week"

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I have been taking Belviq since July 19th (almost 6 months) and this pill has changed my life. I have lost 54 pounds and I plan on taking it the rest of my life to control my hunger. The lose it app is awesome also!!"

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I do not recommend this medication to anyone. A couple of days after my first dose, I came down with severe symptoms - nausea, vomiting, and chest palpitations. Made a visit to the local ER. After multiple test, I was diagnosed with a virus. Since it was during the Christmas holidays, I associated it with "holiday foods". Has taken a few weeks to get back to 100%. So, on Monday, I took my second dose of Belviq and on Tuesday the same symptoms occurred! And....today is Friday! Stay away!"

For Weight Loss: "I started to use Belviq in early 2016. After two bottles, I stopped taking the pills because I was not losing weight and thought I was amongst the group of "non-responders." I decided to consult my doctor once again and expressed how I wanted to try something else. At that point, he told me Belviq released an extended release formula. Today January 7, 2017, I have been on Belviq XR for 14 days. My starting weight was 180lbs., I am down to 166lbs. I lost 14 pounds. I am eating less, and getting full quicker. It is good to note, I was under the weather and my diet became chicken noodle soup for 5 out of the 10 days since beginning BelviqXR. I am completely satisfied and I highly recommend it."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "Took this for 2 weeks and gained 2-3 pounds. I had been told to stay on it for a few months to detetmine its effectiveness. I discontinued it because of severe bladder spasms. Pain disappeared slowly over the next day."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I have been on Belviq for about 1.5 years - I initially started taking it to lose weight before my wedding last year. From the time I began taking Belviq (August 2015), I started feeling results - although slow - within about a month. I had several fittings and such before the big day and the seamstress had to keep taking my dress in. I had lost about 20 lbs in ~4 months! I was amazed! So here we are two months after my wedding anniversary, and I am currently down ~75lbs. I started at about 245 - and the last time I weighed myself I was at 170. I have gone from a size 18/20 to a size 12. I would still like to lose another ~20 lbs, and I have no doubt I'll get there with Belviq."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I just started Belviq 4 days ago. Other than chills in the evening (which I don't mind since I live in hot muggy Florida). I get headaches that last for a very short time and go away. Dry mouth is constant but drinking lots of water takes care of that. It is too early to know if weight loss will occur or when but I do notice I forget to eat. That is always a plus. Good luck to everyone and to myself. I am excited to see what the future holds."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "The first few days I had crushing migraines and dizziness. I began getting headaches around week 6 again but, didn't associate it with the meds because 5 weeks passed with no side effects. Then my left eye began to droop and blur my vision. I thought it was due to botox. The eye drooped to almost closed, then my cheek fell and a few days later I had trouble speaking. Rushed to the ER and got an MRI, CT etc to rule out a stroke. ZERO findings. They said Botox was the cause. My symptoms have come and gone, which would not be botox reaction. Today, my vision is blurred to the point that I cant drive and eye barely open. I just figured out that the eye opens when I miss a dose!!! NOT WORTH IT. My hospital bill is going to be HUGE"

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "Used this for a month and did not lose any weight. I read some reviews and did not go through any of the symptoms I saw. I gave it 2 stars because aI did notice it suppressed my appetite a little. I refilled and gave it another shot but the next month was more of the same. Went off it a few days, maybe a week, and this morning I took one......... Holy crap I feel like an ice cube. Never been this cold in my life and also been in the bathroom all day with #2 imitating a faucet. I can honestly say, soon as I get out this bed, rest of them are going in the trash. Worst $190 (2 months with discount card) I have ever spent on a weightloss gimmick. Now back to the meal plan and lots of exercise."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I can't really rate this drug yet only because its my 2nd day. But i will say i was scared to even take this after all the side effects i read on this page. Day one i had no side effects maybe tired but i also have a teething 9 month old so that could be it too. I will post more at a later time."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I have been taking Belviq for 3 weeks and have lost 3 lbs so far. No headaches but I get the chills and my body is very achy, I feel like I have the flu. I crave everything! I don't think I've eaten this much in years! I am also very tired, I want to take a nap all day! I will finish the bottle but for $83, I need to see more results."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Obesity: "I started as a size 26 weighing 285 pounds on May 15th 2015. As of right now, November 1st 2016, I weigh 173 and am wearing a size 12. I take Belviq twice a day, walk for at least 30min per day as I walk the dogs and I use Lose It! to track my foods so that I am aware of what I eat. Even if I go over my recommended daily caloric intake, at least I know where I stand. This has worked perfectly for me and my weight loss, I've been very successful. The only thing that changed for me was adding in Belviq, I was already doing the rest for at least a year prior avg was unsuccessful. So, I credit Belviq for my success."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I was super excited to begin this drug in order to help me lose some weight. After one dose, I had a horrible headache and a jolt that went through my brain so violent, it woke me from my sleep. It scared the living "L" out of me. Thanks, but no thanks."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I'm a 36 year old female. I was overweight by 13 lbs. I know that's not a lot but I was afraid of gaining even more weight. I was hungry all the time. I would eat a big meal at lunch and feel like I was starving an hour later. My doctor prescribed me Belviq 6 weeks ago, I've lost 20 lbs so far. I use my Gear fit 2 to track my steps and water intake. I'm also using the S health app on my phone to track my calories. I eat no more then 1200 calories per day. I only drink water. No alcohol, no soda, no coffee. The first day I took Belviq, I did have a headache and I felt dizzy. By the next day I felt normal again. I went on the Belviq website to download their coupon. I do not go through my insurance. I pay $75 per month. Well worth it!"

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I have been on Belviq for 1 month. The first day I was extremely tired and weak. No other symptoms! I have lost 5 lbs this month. I take 10mg belviq 2x a day have been taking 30 mg of phentermine in the middle of the day last few weeks. Prior to this i was on phentermine 37.5 mg twice a day and was able to lose and keep off about 30 lbs. You still have to work at it to lose weight with this drug, it just makes things a little easier. Within the first few days I could tell I was eating smaller portions and getting full fast. I have 15 pounds to lose to get to my goal weight so my weight loss is slower than someone with more to lose. Usually I will lose 1-2 per month so I am very happy with 5 lbs! It is expensive but its worth a try."

Belviq (lorcaserin) for Weight Loss: "I weighed 245 about 2 years ago. Had tried phen-fen, and just about every type of diet imaginable! I was 64 when I started. Im now at 165 (5'10) and, while I could lose another 15, im not because my skin is so droopy due to years of losing/gaining hundreds of pounds (note to young women--you dont want this too happen to you) and im too old to have skin surgery. Losing weight was so easy with Belviq--feel full, no cravings and just eat less."
