About the Belviq Lawsuit

Belviq (generic name lorcaserin) is a popular prescription weight-loss drug made by Eisai Inc. to help people experiencing obesity and weight-related health issues curb their hunger. Alarmingly, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety trial concluded that the drug could increase the risk of several different types of cancer, including pancreatic, lung, and colorectal cancer. As a result, the FDA issued a full recall of Belviq in February 2020.

What Are the Risks of Taking Belviq?

Weight-loss drugs are not known for their safety; unfortunately, Belviq is no exception. In a five-year, double-blind study of 12,000 patients, those taking Belviq were more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than those taking a placebo (sugar pill). The FDA stated, “A range of cancer types was reported, with several different types of cancers occurring more frequently in the lorcaserin group,” including:

This is a drug that probably should never have been on the market, and the manufacturers need to be held accountable. Those suffering from cancer caused by Belviq deserve compensation.
