There's a new weight loss drug available. It's called Belviq. It was approved about a year ago by the FDA.

Belviq works by changing chemicals in the brain to make you feel like you're full. It's intended for obese adults and should be combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

In clinical trials Belviq helped patients lose about 5 percent of their body weight.
