belviq-logoA commercial name for Lorcaserine, Belviq is manufactured by Arena Pharmaceuticals and it shot into fame owing to being one of the two weight loss products that received a stamp of approval from the FDA over the last decade. Like every weight loss product, Belviq has its unique method for accomplishing this goal and it entails controlling of appetite by acting directly on the receptors of the brain. As a result, the user enjoys a feeling of being full in spite of not having eaten anything and thus experiences weight loss. While all of this might sound pleasant and simple in theory, its application on a practical scale is far from being as straightforward. In a survey that involved as many as 8000 obese users of Belviq, it was found that the degree of weight loss that occurred was hardly significant and could be attributed to other factors too. This implied that in order to lose a small amount of weight, there was no need to resort to Belviq as it would not make much of a difference. On the contrary, the user stood the risk of suffering from side effects which did not seem worthy at all considering the miniscule amount of weight lost in the process. Another cause of concern pertains to the long duration for which this drug was pending approval by FDA. In fact, since the turn of the century most of the weight loss products have been under the scanner in context of health risks and Belviq is no exception to this rule. It was around the year 2000 that users of various weight loss products began to complain of serious ailments like cardio issues and damage to several other internal organs. Owing to the strict scrutiny that followed, several new weight loss products were refused permission and Belviq was one of them. Eventually, it was after almost a decade that it received approval and began to be sold in the market. Having decided on consuming Belviq in order to lose weight, you should be prepared to face some common side effects like anxiety, a feeling of confusion and coughing. Most users ahave also reported an adverse impact of Belviq on urination and symptoms spread frompain in the urinary bladder to burning sensation at the time of urination and blood being passed along with the urine. Cases of depression have also been reported along with an overall feeling of exhaustion without any physical exertion and interference with the clarity of vision. Because this pill acts directly on the brain, there is bound to be some neurotic impact and this is manifested in form of nightmares and dulling of mental faculties. Other sense organs are impacted too, particularly nose, ears and throat and at times the damage might spread to mammary glands too. Prior to consuming Belviq, it is imperative to inform the doctor of your decision and undergo tests to confirm whether or not you are fit to take this medication. Failure to do so might cause severe side effects like swelling of hands and feet, sudden fluctuation in weight, nausea and vomiting. Blood sugar levels are impacted too in case of diabetics and the person’s daily routine is disrupted owing to discomfort in performing everyday functions like sleeping, breathing, moving and so on. As soon as symptoms take on a more severe form, like muscular spasms, hallucinations and suicidal thoughts, it is time to consult the doctor before the situation gets out of hand. Extreme cases have also reported discharge from breasts and unexplained enlargement of breasts after having started on Belviq. There is a condition known as Belviq high also wherein the medication could cause hallucinations and assume an addictive form if taken in large doses. May be Belviq might appear as a good solution for you if you lack the self control to stick to healthy eating habits, but it is a drug that could well be avoided courtesy of its impact on your health. In the end, it is question of making healthy choices and replacing unhealthy habits with healthy alternatives for the weight loss to be long term and effective.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Many thanks!

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
