Belviq and Belviq XR (Lorcaserin) Lawsuit

Belviq and Belviq XR (lorcaserin) are weight-loss medications that are meant to help people with obesity and weight-related health issues curb their hunger, thereby enabling them to potentially lose weight. Unfortunately, based on official findings, Belviq may be dangerous. 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:
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Lung cancer
In January 2020 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a recall of Belviq and Belviq XR due to evidence linking the drug with an increased risk of cancer. If you or a loved one took Belviq, Belviq XR, or another brand of lorcaserin, and were later diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to compensation from the drug’s manufacturer.
