I'm 4'11" weigh 177 my doc prescribed Belviq (lorcaserin) to me. Is it worth trying or should I suggest adipex instead?

Weight. I am a very strong advocate of proper diet and exercise. I never encourage my patients to take weight loss medications. Drinking water and inhaling air don't make you gain weight. You are what you eat period. Even exercise is less than half a battle. Diet, diet, and diet!!!
