Belviq has been available by prescription for a little over a year now. The FDA approved this prescription weight-loss medication in 2012 for chronically obese patients. Patients with a BMI of 30 or more may be prescribed, by their physician, Belviq in conjunction to a diet plan and exercise routine to help manage their weight. Patients suffering from weight-related medical conditions such as hypertension or type 2 diabetes may be given the option to take Belviq as well.
Belviq is an appetite suppressant with a new chemical that works by activating the brain's reaction to serotonin receptors that are involved with appetite. Simply put, it helps patients eat less and feel fuller, faster. Ultimately, the patient will begin to lose weight due to the decrease in appetite and interest in food.
If you are an adult who is obese or overweight with a medical condition, you may benefit from using Belviq in conjunction with proper diet and exercise.
Like all weight-loss drugs, you may experience a side effect or two from taking Belviq. Common side effects are headaches, nausea, dry mouth, dizziness and constipation.
Most health insurance policies do not cover the use of prescription weight-loss medications. Like other appetite suppressants, this medication could get very expensive. It's best to know your options before you head to the pharmacy to fill your prescription. Many times drug companies and manufacturers will have some kind of assistance available to patients.
