Alcohol And Belviq

Updated
Harriet Says:

Hello, I have been on Belviq for a little more than a week. It works great! I lightened my food portions and I still feel full before I finish it. I am still craving sweets but it is not as strong. I keep a bowl of red seedless grapes handy. It really helps. My question is this...on the weekend, it is nice to have a beer or a drink or two. Is this OK while I am taking Belviq? I can not find that information anywhere. Thank you.

Hello, Harriet! How are you?

Belviq can cause side effects, such as trouble concentrating, drowsiness and dizziness, so combining it with alcohol could worsen those effects, basically making one drink affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. It is really best to avoid alcohol, while taking a prescription medication.

However, if your doctor okays it, then you should be careful to only drink in moderation and make sure that you will not be driving.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I avoided drinking alcohol the first few weeks until I knew how Belviq was affecting me, but alcohol doesn't seem to affect me any differently now than it did before.
