Indications for Taking Belviq for Weight Loss

Belviq is classified as a 5-HTC2 serotonin receptor agonist. That means that it acts specifically on the serotonin 5-HTC2 receptor which is located in the nerve endings in appetite centers of the brain. The medication acts to prevent the uptake of serotonin after it has been released at the nerve endings. This action has the effect of increasing the concentration of serotonin in the synapses between neurons. This effect sends a message that cascades through brain centers resulting in feelings of fullness and satiety and some decrease in cravings. Specifically, it has no effect on heart valves nor an effect on anxiety, insomnia, emotions or depression as occurs often with other weight loss medication. It is meant to be used with a reduced calorie diet and a program of increased physical activity.

How to Obtain Belviq

Since Belviq is a controlled, DEA class IV medication, you must see your own physician for a prescription. At that time you need to discuss the following indications, adverse reactions and contraindications with him. You cannot purchase this drug OTC or without a prescription from a physician who has conducted a personal physical examination in his office.
