 5  Weight loss The first 4 days were horrible -- headache, fatigue and VERY dizzy. I was taking 2Xper day as prescribed but I cut back to once per day and the side effects vanished. In this short time (1 week) I've lost about 5 pounds. (I lost 5 lbs. per MONTH on Weight Watchers) It's not that my appetite has completely disappeared; it hasn't, but it restrains it enough so that I'm not always looking for high carbohydrate snacks. It also seems to squash any desire for alcoholic beverages. I have always worked out at least 1 hour per day so that helps too I'm sure. So in short, it's not a "miracle pill" -- you still have to eat right & exercise but it gives you that edge to resist high calorie foods. And so far, it seems to be very effective. F 62 1 weeks

 5  obesity no hunger pangs, loosing weight This drug works wonders. I have lost about a lb per day since june 14th. If you start it you will not want to ever stop, because you eat much less and no side effects.the lack of craving food, and feeling full after half my plate, I have not had that for over 20 years. I sleep better, and no more grazing the fridge all day long. M 55

BELVIQ  (LORCASERIN HYDROCHLORIDE):  Lorcaserin is used with a doctor-approved exercise, behavior change, and reduced-calorie diet program to help you lose weight. It is used by certain overweight people, such as those who are obese or have weight-related medical problems. Losing weight and keeping it off can lessen the many health risks that come with obesity, including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and a shorter life. Lorcaserin belongs to a class of drugs known as serotonin receptor agonists. It is thought to work by affecting a certain part of the brain that helps control your appetite.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
