Ingredients in New Drug Belviq

As a relatively new weight loss drug, Belviq® (lorcaserin) contains lorcaserin and various inactive ingredients. This prescription medication comes as a tablet and is approved for use in people who are obese or have at least one weight-related medical condition (such as diabetes or high cholesterol).
Although it is not quite known how the drug works, it is thought that it helps people eat less and feel full faster by activating a brain chemical called serotonin.
Research has shown that if someone has not had at least a 5 percent reduction in his or her body weight within 12 weeks of Belviq treatment, this weight loss pill will likely not be effective in these cases.
