National Belviq Litigation Attorneys

Protecting Those Who Have Been Affected by the Drug Belviq Nationwide

In February 2020, the U.S Food & Drug Administration (FDA) advised Eisai Inc., the manufacturer of weight loss drugs Belviq and Belviq XR, to immediately remove their products from shelves nationwide. Belviq, known also by its generic name lorcaserin, was found to increase the risk of cancer in patients based on results from a five-year study which followed 12,000 patients. Eisai Inc. has recalled the drug, but for many who had been prescribed lorcaserin, it may be too late. People who have been diagnosed with cancer since taking the drug deserve justice and we are here to help them achieve it.

Our skilled attorneys have over 40 years of experience aggressively fighting for those who have been injured due to the negligence of another party. No matter where in the U.S. you are located, we are ready to stand up for you and your loved ones who have been diagnosed with cancer as a result of taking Belviq.

Why Was Belviq Recalled & What Does This Mean for Me?

Belviq (lorcaserin) was approved by the FDA in 2012. A caveat of this approval was that Eisai Inc. had to agree to complete a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to ensure the drug’s safety. It was this study that revealed the potential cancer-causing effects of the drug.

Several cancers were found to be associated with usage of the weight loss medicine, but the types found to be most prevalent among Belviq users are:

  • Colorectal
  • Lung
  • Pancreatic

If you have been taking Belviq, cease using the drug immediately and dispose of the remainder of your medication, ideally at a drug take back location for safety. Next, talk to your doctor about the next steps. If you have developed cancer or have symptoms which may suggest cancer or other adverse effects, contact a lawyer once you have received medical treatment and/or a diagnosis.
