General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Belviq
On day one, after 2 doses, I got the worst migraine. The pain was debilitating and lasted all night. I will never take it again!! I have never had a headache like that in my life. I have to change my habits and eat naturally.

Belviq
I am on my 2nd day of Belviq and got a headaches so severe after the 1st dose, I've also had to start taking 800mg of Ibuprofen. This will work for about 2 hours and the headache is back with a vengeance. I've read several posts that the headaches will subside after the first couple of days, hopefully that will happen with me or I will have to discontinue usage as I can barely function at work. I've also noticed severe fatigue and chills, I almost feel like I have the flu! I'm going to stick with it for as long as I can, I hope these side effects will subside with time as it's been extremely tough on my body. More updates later on weight loss, none to date but it's only been 2 days and I've not even thought about weight loss, I'm focusing on trying to make it through the day!
