Reviews for Belviq to treat Weight Loss

Sort by:

"I started my prescription last night. Immediately, I was a bit drowsy, somewhat euphoric. I ate 4 hours later & felt ridiculously overly full without overeating. I know it's not supposed to work for 2+ weeks, but I did have a crazy full feeling for a long time. My insurance covered it, 90 day supply, but with a $150 copay. I printed the savings card from Belviq's website and it covered the $150!! You can use it on top of your insurance, or if you don't have insurance. It covers a portion. And you can use it for 12 months."

"I started Belviq on February 19th, dry mouth but no other side effects. I am down five pounds in those three weeks. First week absolutely no weight loss and hungry. Second week I noticed a change in appetite. Lost 3 lbs. Third week I am down five. Appetite is controllable most times. It does require some self discipline right now. So far so good."

"33 yr old Female - 5'2.5" 196 lbs at start. I had previously been 232 lbs in March of 2015 and in March of 2016 I was down to 174 lbs. I have a hormonal imbalance and gained back 20 lbs. in the last year. I have been on this medication for two weeks today. I have previously taken Phentermine 37.5 for 4 months and Belviq does not compare at all. Belviq has done nothing to suppress my appetite; I am actually hungrier than I was prior to taking Belviq. I am also exhausted everyday. I never had appetite issues, but on a low calorie diet I am starving. This was a waste of $265 that I definitely didn't have to spend."

"Okay, I just started the medication so don't have anything negative or positive yet. But, just wanted to sign in. I have already, so as my doctor said last week took off 8 pounds. At my weight 8 pounds is not noticeable. But in hopes to using the Belviq product I will see some changes not just in the weight but the body melting down. My weight today is 223 - 5'4 height age 59 in 2 months May 2017. I'm excited to see how this works for my body. I have read the different reviews some positive some or not. But, for the cost of this medication 60 pills two a day for $323.00. I'm hoping that it works and not with all the side affects because my job is standing in front of folks on a daily basic teaching. So, with that "good luck to Ann.""

"Another update: I have officially been on Belviq XR for 1 month. I am down 10 pounds. I am watching what I eat, and going to the gym 3X per week. (I've been doing the gym for about 2 1/2 weeks now). I felt like the pill isn't lasting as long as it was: I was feeling hungry at night. So my dr has now switched me to the regular Belviq 10mg 2x daily. Took that first pill this morning.. I feel a tad nauseous, like I wish I hadn't eaten breakfast (which was small). The only side affects I experience are: I'm cold all the time, super thirsty, and occasional constipation. All things that I can handle. I have high blood pressure, but my blood pressure has gone down this past month! I see the Dr again in a month & will update then."

"Wasted $250. I gave it 30 days. Side effects experienced was a slight headache only on first day and that it did not work at ALL! There should be a way to get a refund!!!! If I had the many reviews from so called "non responders" I would not have taken the $250 risk. Rip off!!!!"

"I have been taking this for 5 days but my side effects are horrible. The drug is working so well I'm trying to push through. First two days I had a really bad headache and was so nauseous it was really bad. The nausea left but then on the 3rd day a severe rash developed. It has been miserable. I'm going to give it another day or two because my appetite is so much less than it's ever been. It's almost shocking. I have to make myself eat. Really hoping the itching goes away."

"I have been on belviq XR for about 2 months now. I started at 242lb and now at 228lb, which is great. However, I now have a problem reaching orgasms. This is very frustrating to say the least. Has anyone else experienced this issue?"

"I went to the doctor on early February 2017. My blood pressure was through the roof and I was pre-diabetic. After bloodwork he prescribed Lisinopril and Belviq. I started taking Belviq on 2/10/2017 and my starting weight was 194 at 5'2". It is 3/2 and now I am 188. I know it shows it to be slow, however, the slowest part was in the beginning when I guess my body was getting used to the medication. The first week I did not lose any weight. As the day passed I was seeing my weight loss started to forward. Now I am losing 1 lb a day. I am eating sensibly and replacing one or two meals with a Raw Juice full of vegetables like Kale, ginger, green apple, etc. I am also very tired at night which is helping me get a nice restful sleep."

"I am providing an update: I'm on week 3 now of my pill. In the beginning I was NEVER hungry. Never had a hunger pain, had to remind myself to eat. After about 2 weeks, I noticed that I was having some hunger pains, like the feeling of being full wasn't lasting very long. I've also gained weight. I started weight watchers - so I'm not sure what weight loss is attributed to what. My first 2 weeks (which I wasn't on WW), I had only lost 2 pounds. I'm not going to lie, I am a tad disappointed. After reading some of the reviews, I was hoping to have lost more. I'm not giving up yet though - my Dr said we have 3 months to give it a try. The only side affects I have now are that I'm cold, and I'm constantly thirsty. I'll post again in 2 weeks."

"I took my first dose this morning. I am a healthy 43yrs old but know that getting the weight off as I age will be better for me. I look forward to posting positive results and to have them serve as my accountability. And to read all your posts to serve as support! 185 and counting..... ( down)"

"I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember ( I am 35 ) . I have taken every weight loss pill you can think of !! My starting weight today Feb 15 2017 is 194 and I'm 4'11 ! Today is my first day on Belviq , I take 1 pill twice a day . Side effects : chills , metal taste on my tongue and a slight headache . When I ate lunch today I could only eat half of my food , and I'm not starving when I get off work like usual . I must also mention that I am pms'ing , and usually I'm eating every thing pasta and fried related , but I'm not craving it . From reading the reviews I was worried about not having energy to workout , but I had the energy ! What I have also done is I have starting B12 injections. I will report my weight soon !"

"I started taking Belviq 7 days ago and I am 7 pounds lighter today. Far as side affects I had just a tiny bit of light head & I think that was only because I read some of the reviews & that's what some people were saying they had & it was stuck in my mind it was going to happen. Other than that I've been absolutely fine & I'm looking forward to more weight loss"

"I've been on this just for a week now. The first five days all I wanted to do was eat and I actually gained 1 pound. But the last two days my appetite has decreased and when I do eat I get full very fast so hopefully it stays like this. I'm not on any diet or exercise program which would probably help but if I go down to a 1500 calorie a day diet I wouldn't even need a pill. I'll keep checking back in that to share my experience."

"I started Belviq XR yesterday. Took my first pill at 9am. I realized at noon that I hadn't had my normal daily healthy snack, and that I wasn't hungry for lunch. I did eat lunch at 1:30, but only a few bites and I lost all interest. I felt a little dizzy later in the afternoon, so I had some carrots, and had to force my dinner down later and ate 3/4 of it. Never did I feel hungry all day. I can see, with this pill, you have to force yourself to eat. I had absolutely NO cravings yesterday for anything. I did get cold later in the afternoon, which I'm NEVER cold. And, my skin got tingly.. like I put icy/hot on it. Other than that, and a little lightheadedness, I had no other side effects. Will update again at the 1 week mark."

"I started this med before a weight loss program. My problem was emotional eating. I've been taking it for a month. I feel great. I find the nervous eating has stopped. My appetite has dropped tremendously. Only side effect I am thirsty all the time which is okay anyway, I drink lots more water. From reading all the remarks about this drug, its probably isn't for every one, but so are some other drugs. I can't take antibiotics. I highly recommend this drug for weight loss. I've lost 8 lbs."

"I started taking Belviq 2 and a half weeks ago, and I have already lost 17 pounds! I know that sounds like an unhealthy amount in such a short time, but I am sure to eat between 1200-1400 calories a day -I have just eliminated all processed foods and try to eat as much protein as possible. I have always enjoyed lifting weights and going to the gym, so I continue to do that 5 days a week. Now, my appetite is under control with Belviq so I don't eat back all the calories I burned with exercise. As far as side effects, I did have a headache for the first two days. It makes my body feel tired, but not like a sleepy tired. I'm hoping that goes away soon, but it's not debilitating to the point I can't accomplish daily tasks."

"Okay so it has now been 8 days and I have lost 10 pounds. I have been making much better choices with my meal plans so this medication has worked better for me than phentermine. On 1/16/17 I weighed in at 181.00 and 1/24/17 @ 171.00. In the past 2-3 days I have experienced minor headaches and so ibuprofen 800mg took them away. Don't forget to eat about an hour before you do a cardio or weight workout. Yesterday, I ate only one full meal of steak and rice at 12:30PM and drank a few protein drinks (premier protein). After working out I tanned for 6 min then I went to the steam room for 15 min and 5 min in the sauna. After that I felt so nauseous that anything I could think of to eat made me want to throw up but this medicine really works.."

"I started Belviq this morning at 7:15 am. I am extremely cold. I am not too concerned about it right now. So far so good. I am hoping I have no more side effects. It's really too early to tell."
