Cancer Risk Linked to Belviq®

In February 2020, the FDA requested that Belviq® and Belviq XR® be withdrawn from the market after clinical trials demonstrated an increased occurrence of cancer associated with those who took the drug for more than six months.
Eisai Inc. has voluntarily recalled the weight-loss drug. However, allegations have been made that the manufacturer was aware of the cancer risk and failed to warn users, putting the health of many people at risk.

What the FDA Found

Belviq® (lorcaserin HCl) was initially approved by the FDA in 2012 and is prescribed, along with diet and exercise, to help treat obesity.
The FDA has announced that it discovered an increased risk of cancer in patients who take Belviq® and Belviq XR® for weight loss. This news came after a clinical trial conducted to better understand the risks of the drug.

This trial examined 12,000 patients over a period of five years and found that those who were taking the drug as opposed to a placebo had a higher instance of cancer. The most frequent types of cancer seen were pancreatic, lung, and colorectal, but a variety of cancers have been linked to the drug.

Did the Manufacturer Know?

Now, patients across the country are filing lawsuits against the manufacturer of Belviq®, claiming that not only were they never properly warned about the potential cancer risk, but that the manufacturer knew about the dangers and did nothing.

Drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to inform the public of any known or potential dangers associated with their products. Sadly, many choose to put profits before the health and safety of their consumers. Goldwater Law Firm is currently helping victims across the country take legal action to hold Belviq®’s manufacturer responsible for its actions and seek the money they deserve for their suffering.
