"Even though I did lose about 4 pounds in almost 2 weeks.. I feel that was from my healthy eating and not the belviq. I was still hungry, extremely tired, and towards the end of my trial depressed. I wouldn't reccomend this product to anyone :("

"I started Belviq with the free 15 day prescription. After the 15 days, I had only lost 4 pounds. I decided to get the 30 day prescription since it was only $75 with the Belviq savings card. I think I will try it for a month or two to see how it goes. I haven't really experienced any side affects, other than my blood sugar being way lower than normal, which is a good thing, although I'm not really sure why, as I feel I am eating as much as before. Some days it seems I get fuller quicker than normal when eating, but I still get as hungry as I ever did before. I will be getting back to more regular exercise soon, so I hope that will help too. I only gave it a "5" for now, until I see how it goes. Fingers crossed!"

"First 10 days of taking Belviq, no difference except generalized muscle aches. Then the 'switch' came on. Weight started falling off. Did not change lifestyle @ all. I didn't excercise & didn't start. Lost 20 lbs in approx. 3 months. Kept wt. off 1 yr. After 1 yr., Belviq seems to have stopped working. Have put 10 lbs back on. Has it stopped working after months. for anyone else. Loved it & want it to work again for me."

"I took trial of belviq last year with no side effects. I just filled prescription and several side effects. Wondering if anyone else has experienced: overly tired, fatigue, feeling like I'm catching a cold or flu. It only been 2 days."

"I started taking Belviq a few days ago. I started with 1 pill, because I am sensitive to amphetamines and learned the hard way with Phen (by day three, I couldn't sleep-taking half a dose). For the last two days, I split the second dose in half, taking a total of 1.5 pills/day. Today, I will take the full dose as prescribed. What I have noticed so far, is that it doesn't really "suppress" my appetite, but I am eating a lot less with each meal. I get full faster. Listen to your body and stop eating when you are no longer hungry. Also, for those of you who do not have insurance coverage there are coupons available"

"I have only been on Belviq for 1 week. I'm not sure if I have lost any weight yet. I am experiencing many side effects. Bad headache, slightly dizzy, very tired (napping almost daily), and stomach issues (heartburn & diarrhea). I'm giving it 6 weeks and then I will decide what to do. I'm hoping the side effects go away within another week."

"I've been taking belviq for six months. I've lost 42 pounds. At 5'6 I went from 220 to178. I'd like to loose that last 8. I combined Belviq with the Calorie counting app that allows you to enter daily foods and activities. It then provides a daily analysis and maintains all your records. Finally it grades you each day. Together I've had great success and feel so much better. Only side effect : dry mouth. I can live with that !"

"I am 52 years old, 5'5 and weighed 183 pounds. Keeping my old eating habits and staying sedentary expecting this med to work netted a 5 lb loss over 3 months. So I quit. I restarted after a 6 month break with a new food & exercise plan. My weight is falling off this time! My learning is that this med is exponentially more effective if I take responsibility for getting off the sofa and spending more time & money in the produce dept. I'm down 10 lbs in the first 2 weeks back on it. I've found some great recipes for vegetables I never thought I'd eat. My appetite us suppressed enough that I'm perfectly satisfied with a 5 oz steak instead of my normal 16 oz. I recommend Belviq but only as a supplement to healthier eating and exercise."

"I began Belviq in August 2015. Overall I was very pleased with my results. I took it religiously for 3 months, and lost 30 pounds! The only side effect I experienced was weight loss. I had to make myself eat, and used My Fitness Pal to journal my nutrition/calories. I tried to stick to a 1000 to 1200 calorie limit, but most of the time I ate less. The down side to Belviq: just after I ordered anothe 3 month supply, it quit working altogether. I tried waiting a month, then trying again, unfortunately, it no longer worked for me...period. I was devastated. I have switched to another weight loss program, but too soon to see results."

"I just started taking Belviq 7 days ago. So far I have not experienced any troublesome side effects. I will say that I have felt tired and in the first days I did have a slight headache. Other than that it's been easy. Also I started out at 255lbs and now am at 247lbs. So I guess it's working."

"I've been taking Belviq for 6 months and have lost 43 lbs but I am also exercising by walking at least 2 days a week and watching what I eat. I have had no side affects. I feel for Belviq to work as you want and as efficiently as it can, you need to have not only exercise but the frame of mind to think things through when you are feeling hungry. Like why are you hungry? are you not hungry but bored? are you sitting around watching TV? I have eaten most anything I want but in portions I have learned after 6 months the amount of food that I know will fill me up so I don't get the feeling of full like I did in the beginning because I don't put large portions on my plate and I'm never hungry after a meal."

"I've been using Belviq for a little over a month. I start on 12-9-15 at the weight of 277.4 and today on 1-16-2016 I have lost 13lbs total. I did have stall the second week taking the medication. I try to watch what I eat and how much I eat. I had no side effects of any kind I really do like this medication. It helps me to stop craving for foods I shouldn't have at all. My goal for the end of the year to drop down to 75lbs. Good luck to those who's giving the Belviq a try."

"So far I am not impressed. On the first day I had a dizzy headache, but from the second day on I have had no bad symptoms at all. That's the good news! The bad news is I have been on Belviq for 6 days and I have GAINED 1 pound each day I have been using it!! On the first day I cut down all portions, ate a salad or small cup of soup for lunch and a smaller portion of dinner--yet each morning I have gained a pound. It is absurd! I plan to take the full regimen of pills I bought (and what a bill that was!!), but I don't know if I will make it to my next doctor's appointment in 3 months with good news. I have not been hungry at all, so you'd think the weight would at least stay the same or go down. Very depressed.. :-("

"I have only been on Belvig for 1 week and I have lost 6 lbs but in addition I have cut back on soda 99%, cut out 100% of fast food, and cut my general food intake. I have experienced zero side effects which is a big reason for the high score along with the initial weight loss. I purchased Belvig with the Belvig savings card bring the cost from about 275 to 75. I think I will update/re review at the 3 month mark."

"I have been on Belviq for 3 days now and I was worried that I might not see any weight loss. I have joined the gym at work and I work out 3/4 days a week. After reading some of the positive responds, I am very hopeful that I will lose weight. I hope that I have a successful story as above, and not a story that I can not lose anything!. Just for the record I feel great taken 2 pills a day and I have not had any headache's at all, (I hope that it stays this way)."

"I have been on Belviq 4 1/2 months and I have lost 61 pds. I have dropped down to 1 pill now because I do not want to get addicted to them. I did not give 10 stars because I want to make sure I do not get any long term side effects first. But Thanks Belviq I went from 320 to 258 and I feel so much better. I wish it was cheaper though."

"I have been on Belviq for 3 weeks, twice daily. Most side affects have gone away except I'm still tired a lot. I started @ 244, I'm now at 230. I walk 2 miles most days of the week and I watch my carb intake. It has greatly reduced my appetite where I almost forget to eat. I drink lots of water and drink a cup of hot green tea at bedtime."

"I started 5 days ago. The first 2 days I had dizziness and serious hunger pangs. I felt like I was more hungry than ever. The side affects are lessening..but not 100% gone. Sadly despite diet and exercise I have not lost 1 pound. I'll see how things go for a full 2 weeks before stopping."
