- Belviq (lorcaserin) and adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine)
I have been on Adderall for more than a year and I have recently started taking Belviq. For some reason a lot of doctors worry about a serious interaction between the two, in my experience the two get along just fine. Adderall helps me stay focused, while Belviq suppresses appetite.
During the second week of Belviq I did have very small stomach upsets, such as heartburn but it did go away about 2 days later. Other than that the medication works well and I think it is safe for anyone to try who is looking to lose weight. Belviq works on serotonin and while the exact mechanism is unknown it causes appetite suppression in most people. Belviq being one of the medications that are approved for long term use, it may be very helpful to individuals who require a longer period of time on the medication. Belviq reminds me of an antidepressant I was on called Effexor, the two produce the same sense of satisfaction overall, but mostly with food. However Effexor’s side effects (show up around week 7-12) and made it so that the medication is almost impossible to used. Belviq at this time is not giving me any side effects, I think it’s a wonderful drug, much better than the other options like Contrive and Qsyimia. However it’s not for everyone the drug may work perfectly on 80 % of the people who try it but on others it may not. I recommend that the alternatives be considered such as Contrive or Qsymia if Belviq is not found helpful. If Belviq causes you to feel unwell, sad, depressed, or feel like you have the flu—stop taking Belviq and call your doctor as these may be signs of a life threatening condition. Always take the medication as directed by your doctor, do not adjust your own dose without consulting with the doctor.
Belviq has been a wonderful addition to my life, it’s helped me take control of my body again I feel that the medication is very good, well tolerated, and just an amazingly well designed drug overall.

From this study (5 months ago):
i'm pretty much the most comlex case 4 psychiatrists, 3 psychologists, a nuero scientist/adult mood disorder specialised doctor, 3 gp's, 2 naturopaths and an adhd specialist have ever come accross. i'm basically a pharmacy on legs with over 32types of medications tried in 13 months including those i've mentioned above. i admitted myself into hospital (to get a team around me) for 3 weeks in the psych ward in july 2013 but was granted an agreed by patient/all the different types of doctors and nursing staff to b words) and 'what planet am i from (using a nurses exact words) because i'm soe released early as they had 'no lollies left to try' (using the head psych's exact words referring to prescription medications) anr how so rediculously med-resistant to all that could be tried. the night nurses were actually scare d of me, not by any violence or anything at all alike, but by my uncanny ability to be dosed so very very highly on so many potent medications and extreme combinations to no avail. i've had 9ver 25 blood tests, ultrasounds, brain imagery mri's, sleep disorders studies in hospital and numerous other forms of clinical testing to still be on the rollercoaster and the viscous cycle 13months later and i'm still in the same boat! it's been said way more than just a few times that i'm one hell of a case for the record books!
