  • The recommended dose for BELVIQ is one 10 mg tablet administered orally twice daily.

  • BELVIQ/BELVIQ XR can be taken with or without food.
  • Swallow BELVIQ XR tablets whole and do not chew, crush, or divide.
  • Response to therapy should be evaluated by week 12. If a patient has not lost at least 5% of baseline body weight, discontinue BELVIQ/BELVIQ XR, as it is unlikely that the patient will achieve and sustain clinically meaningful weight loss with continued treatment [see Clinical Studies (14)].
