Belviq new diet pill, is the second to be released by the FDA in more than 20 years and actually the first new medication.(Qsymia is actually a combination of two much older medications.) It belongs to the serotonergic class of drugs. The term “serotonergic” refers to medications whose mechanism of action is to increase serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is a chemical distributed all over the body. In the brain, it acts as a neurotransmitter which sends messages about sleep, sex, mood, anger and appetite between different cells of the brain.
Unlike the anti-depressant SSRI’s, Belviq works by controlling appetite — specifically by activating specific nerve cell receptors for serotonin in the appetite centers of the brain. In the case of serotonin, the message is to increase feelings of fullness and satisfaction. Overweight individuals lose weight by reducing their hunger and desire to eat.
Belviq: New FDA Approved Diet Pill Works by Increasing Serotonin in Brain
Belviq reduces hunger and cravings by altering specifically the 5-HT2C serotonin receptors found on the brain cells in the hypothalamic appetite centers. Since Belviq is far more selective than fenfluramine, none of the destructive heart issues have been noticed in clinical tests. This is exceptionally good news for its maker and the general obese public who have waited 20 years for a safe, effective weight loss medication. Just as new prescription drugs for depression have changed the face of psychiatry, so too will new anti-obesity medications change the way the medical profession treats overweight individuals.
Adding Belviq to your weight loss plan is a breakthrough for long-term weight loss and maintenance. This sensible food and medication plan is created to decrease hunger and eliminate cravings. It is built on the simplest, easiest-to-remember food plan with the addition of Belviq. There are no complicated food preparations. In fact, there are no recipes at all! There is no shopping for unusual foods; there are no counting calories, carbohydrates, fat, protein, or points. By understanding what makes you hungry and what makes you full, you will eat normal food and eliminate most of your hunger and cravings even before you take medication.
Dr Lipman Has Extensive Experience with Belviq in Miami, Fl
My experience with Belviq has been remarkable. It has almost no side effects, and can even be taken at bedtime. It acts more like a anti-depressant than the typical “diet pill.” There is NO mental stimulation, raciness or palpitations. The effect is more on fullness than appetite. It has proven to be useful in diabetics, older people, and people with cardio- vascular disease because of lack of side effects and interactions.
Review of Recent Weight Loss Experience: 2016-2017 with Belviq
I recently completed 12 months of treatment of 20 patients with Belviq. Although this was not a controlled study, the weight loss was impressive:
- 15 of the 20 patients lose more than 15% of their starting weight.
- 3 of 20 patients lose only 10% their starting weight
- 2 of 20 lost less than 5% of the starting weight.
Side effects with Belviq noted: dry mouth, headaches, sleepiness was noted in 4-5 patients, however these were self limited and other than the dry mouth disappeared in 33-4 weeks.

Effectiveness & Side Effects of New Diet Pill Belviq
How effective is Belviq?
According to clinical trial data submitted by Arena to the FDA, nearly 50% of dieters without Type 2 diabetes who used the medication lost at least 5% of their starting weight — or an average of 12 lbs. — over a year, compared with 23% of those taking a placebo. For best results, dieters are advised to use the medication together with a healthy diet and exercise program
Who can take Belviq?
The FDA approved the medication for people who are obese (with a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher) or who are overweight (with a BMI of 27 or above) and also have at least one weight-related health condition such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension and high blood lipids and cholesterol.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects of Belviq in non-diabetic patients are headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dry mouth and constipation. These side effects occurred in 6% or fewer patients and most disappeared after a few days. Only 6% of subjects pulled out of the Belviq studies because of side effects. In patients with diabetes, side effects include low blood sugar, headache, back pain, cough and fatigue.

Health and weight loss expert Dr. Richard Lipman recently released the first–and most comprehensive–book on the new weight loss drug Belviq (Lorcaserin). Lose Weight with Belviq: No More Hunger with the Newest FDA Approved Weight Loss Medication is the very first book to tackle and discuss the ramifications of the first really new weight loss drug approved by the US FDA in two decades. In the book, Lipman discusses the rigorous studies conducted on Belviq (Lorcaserin), how exactly the drug works and how it helps you manage other health conditions, and what you can practically do to take advantage of the drug’s efficacy to achieve your weight loss goals.
Exceptional Drug Safety Rating: Compared with previous other so-called weight loss pills, Belviq (Lorcaserin) has an outstanding level of safety. The results of several studies, which include a full understanding of the drug’s mechanism of action, showed that Belviq acts directly on the appetite center of the brain, without affecting other organs. Unlike other drugs, Belviq does not damage the heart valves, for example.
Dual Action: Lose Weight and Improve Blood Sugar Management (for people with diabetes): The fascinating thing about Belviq is it is the only weight loss drug that also works well against the often “evil twin” of obesity: diabetes. More than 95% of adult diabetics are also overweight or obese. Belviq not only produces weight loss, it improves blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. With Belviq, the improvement in blood sugar control is as significant as that seen with the typical drug used to treat diabetes alone. The end result is an overall improvement in well-being and a greater sense of control over one’s health.
No More Hunger: Julia Roberts’s character in the film Notting Hill tells Hugh Grant’s family how she had been on a strict diet since she was 19 “just to maintain this figure.” “In fact,” she says, “she has been hungry for a decade.” Perhaps nothing drives home the point about conventional diet-based weight loss plans than that scene from an otherwise romantic movie.
As with Belviq (Lorcaserin), you don’t have to endure hunger anymore because the hunger pangs and appetite reduced to the point at which you are no longer at the mercy of incessant cravings. One important caveat, however: this does not mean you will no longer eat, or you can resume spending days gobbling unhealthy servings of whatever they serve at fast-food places. Instead, Belviq–with its powerful ability to manage cravings and control the appetite–can help anyone manage their diet and exercise plan much more effectively.
Easy to Understand: Dr. Lipman writes in an easy-going manner without leaving out important facts. The book is a breeze to read–and has amazing insights when the author discusses, for example, how diabetes develops and what nasty things triglycerides do inside the body–you get to imagine the havoc you cause inside your body with the food you eat and your unhealthy lifestyle.
Practical: Not only do you get exhaustive helpful information in this new weight loss drug, but you also get practical directions on a carefully planned diet regimen designed to complement the drug’s effect–for optimum efficacy and to ensure you will reach your weight loss goals without hitches.
Dr Richard Lipman’s Lose Weight with Belviq: No More Hunger with the Newest FDA Approved Weight Loss Medication is the ONLY book today on this important and exciting weigh loss medication. Dr. Lipman has a website which provides additional information on the book and the Belviq research, along with updates on peoples’ success and problems with the Belviq medication and diet plan.
