Belviq Availability

To help obese and overweight Americans who have been unsuccessful in getting their weight under control with diet and exercise, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved four new weight loss medications since 2012 including Saxenda, Contrave, Belviq, and Qsymia. These weight loss drugs were approved,  after a long gap of 13 years, for long-term weight management in addition to a reduced calorie diet and exercise program.

The first two weight loss drugs to be approved were Belviq and Qsymia in 2011.

Marketed as Belviq and Qsymia, these prescription medications would be taken for the rest of a person’s life. “For many
people, obesity is a lifelong condition, but we don’t always think of it—or treat it—as such,” says Amy Egan, M.D.,
M.P.H., deputy director for safety in FDA’s Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology
Products (DMEP).

Belviq available at W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers New York

Belviq, Qsymia, Contrave, Saxenda, Adipex P etc. are offered as prescription medication options for help losing weight for eligible patients at most W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers New York, Philadelphia, New Jersey and other places.

Belviq is a prescription only weight loss medication and has to be evaluated by a trained and licensed physician familiar with obesity and the treatment of obesity. If you live close a W8MD medical weight loss center location, you may want to consider visiting the closest w8md center to be evaluated to see if Belviq, Qsymia, Contrave, Saxenda, Adipex P or other weight loss medications or non medication weight loss options such as VLCD or LCD diet might be right for you.

Certain limitations, exclusions and other restrictions may apply. Please check the manufacturers website at

Qsymia and Belviq are considered life-long therapies in patients who respond to and tolerate them,” says Egan.

The drugs are meant to be used in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise, says Mary Roberts, M.D., a medical officer in DMEP. “These drugs are another tool to be used by someone trying to reach and stay at a healthy weight,” she

Are you a candidate for Belviq, Qsymia, Contrave or Saxenda to help you lose weight?
You may be a candidate for taking Belviq or Qsymia if you are at least 18 and:
• your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or greater (obese); or
• your BMI is 27 or greater (overweight) and you have at least one other weight-related condition.

Women who are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant should not take either of these medications, Ega n say s, bec ause
weight loss offers no potential benefit to a pregnant woman and can cause fetal harm.

Qsymia carries a risk for birth defects (cleft lip with or without cleft palate) in infants exposed during the first
trimester of pregnancy.

How Does Belviq Work?
Belviq—the trade name for the drug lorcaserin— is a 10 mg tablet taken twice a day that works by activating a part of the
brain that controls hunger.

Belviq was tested in three clinical trials that lasted from 52 to 104 weeks and included nearly 8,000 obese and overweight

• The average weight loss for patients taking Belviq ranged from 3 to 3.7 percent over those taking a placebo.
• In studies of patients without type 2 diabetes, about 47 percent of patients lost at least 5 percent of their weight
compared with 23 percent of patients treated with placebo.

Belviq should be discontinued if a patient fails to lose 5 percent of their weight after 12 weeks of treatment, as it is
unlikely that continued treatment will be successful.

Alternatives to Belviq: Qsymia

Qsymia is a combination of two FDA-approved drugs: phentermine, an appetite suppressant, and topiramate, used to treat
epilepsy and migraines. Roberts explains that Qsymia is taken once a day, with patients starting at the lowest dose
(3.75 mg phentermine/23 mg topiramate extended-release), then increasing to the recommended dose (7.5 mg/46 mg). In some
circumstances, patients may have their dose increased to the highest dose (15 mg/92 mg).
