BELVIQ is the trademarked name for the newly approved diet pill, Lorcaserin Hydrocloride. It is a weight loss drug aimed at persons with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 and above or to people who are overweight but has complications such as diabetes and heart problems.


What is BELVIQ?

The Generic Name of BELVIQ is Lorcaserin. For a time, Belviq diet pill was also known as LORQESS. Belviq is being manufactured by Arena Pharmaceuticals and will be released by a company called Easai.


How does BELVIQ Work?

Belviq works as an activator of the 5-HT2C receptors found in the hypothalamus in the brain. These receptors are responsible for the release of serotonin that can make a person satisfied. Activating these receptors will allow a person to avoid carvings and eat less amounts of food.

Studies shows that BELVIQ is more 5-HT2C receptor selective than Fen-Phen, a banned diet pill that uses the same mode of action and pathway. The US FDA have seen the safety profile of BELVIQ, thus awarded it with its approval to be manufactured and be sold in different pharmacies and drug stores in the United States.

Belviq can help obese and overweight people to lose a weight as fast as 12 weeks.

One clinical study using Lorcaserin on 3 groups shows good results in reducing weight for as short as 12 weeks or 3 months.

  • The first group was given a daily dose of 10mg of Lorcaserin and each patient lost an average of 4 pounds.
  • The second group lost an average of 5.7 pounds per patients by taking a Belviq dose of 15 mg.
  • The third group was able to lose an average of 8 pounds per person by taking a daily dose of Belviq 20mg.
