    tiger does your doc know about this?????????????????

    .Eye disorders.
    More patients on BELVIQ reported an eye disorder than patients on placebo in clinical trials of patients without
    diabetes (4.5% vs. 3.0%) and with type 2 diabetes (6.3% vs. 1.6%). In the population without diabetes, events
    of blurred vision, dry eye, and visual impairment occurred in BELVIQ-treated patients at an incidence greater
    than that of placebo. In the population with type 2 diabetes, visual disorders, conjunctival infections, irritations,
    and inflammations, ocular sensation disorders, and cataract conditions occurred in BELVIQ-treated patients at
    an incidence greater than placebo.

    • re - keep an eye...on your eyes...and consult with your doctor first - as always

    • Being a Type 2 Diabetic, there is a chance I will loose my vision from my Diabetes if I do not control it regardless what medication I will be taking; therefore, 4.5% on BELVIQ versus 3.0% Placebo a difference of 1.5% probability is way below my chances to loose my site if I do not do anything. Do not worry about my Doctor, obviously he will be looking into all the side effects and he promised to look into all the trial results before he makes his decision on my next appointment.

        I thnk you pretty much put senseless.mruncommon in his place.

      • Obviously the last post should have read "weight loss" not "wait loss" . Yes Mr. common sense you wait to cover you are going to loose your shirt, lol

      • "he promised to look into all the trial results before he makes his decision on my next appointment."

        should rather read

        he promised to look into all the trial results before he makes his decision on my next appointment most notably the 0.90% reduction in HbA1c benefit from BELVIQ that was independent from the wait loss, this is why I kept insisting he looks at all the BLOOM, BLOSSOM, BLOOM-DM trials before he makes his final decision. My sense is that he is going to be excited about BELVIQ more than I am and I believe he will be prescribing BELVIQ for many other patients with a condition similar to mine.

        Sentiment: Buy
