My doctor prescribed me Belquiv for weight loss. Has anyone tried them? Does it work? Side effects? Average weight you lost?
Thanks for any tips or input! :-)

I found this article:

Basically, it is an anti-depressant that can reduce your appetite. Having said that, you should see what the contradictions are. Many anti-depressants increase the risk of upper GI bleeding but the risk is nominal unless you combine the drug with things like ibuprofen, aleve, tylenol, etc. Also, you generally cannot eat grapefruit (or grapefruit juice). I'd read up on the contradictions if anything to ensure you aren't combining it with something else you shouldn't.
