BELVIQ® is an FDA-approved prescription weight-loss medication that, when used with diet and exercise, can help some overweight (Body Mass Index [BMI] ≥27 kg/m²) adults with a weight-related medical problem, or obese (BMI ≥30 kg/m²) adults, lose weight and keep it off.
Clinically Proven to Work
BELVIQ® can help you lose weight and improve certain health risk factors — In FDA clinical trials, people who added BELVIQ® to diet and exercise were able to lose weight and improve health risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high cholesterol levels. BELVIQ® was tested in two major clinical studies, one lasting a year (4,008 people) and one lasting 2 years (3,182 people).*
Feel Satisfied When Eating Less
BELVIQ® helps you feel satisfied with less food by targeting a hunger receptor in the brain. The precise way BELVIQ® produces feelings of satisfaction is not fully understood.
How Is BELVIQ® Taken?
You should take BELVIQ as prescribed by your doctor with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity. BELVIQ is a 10 mg tablet taken twice a day, with or without food, which means your daily dose may easily fit into your schedule.
Your doctor should evaluate your progress. If you do not lose a certain amount of weight within the first 12 weeks, your doctor should tell you to stop taking BELVIQ.
