  Original Published: 6/13/2013  A new anti-obesity drug is hitting the market and it's called Belviq.   The drug will be made available to certain patients with a prescription.   Patients who are overweight with at least one weight-related medical condition, like high cholesterol, are eligible.   Belviq was developed more than 10 years ago, and was not approved by the Food and Drug Administration at first.    It's availability was also delayed because the drug has some potential for abuse and needed a Drug Enforcement Agency classification.
