    Summary

    Considering a Belviq Lawsuit?

    Belviq, Belviq XR and the generic, Lorcaserin are popular weight-loss drugs, made by the pharmaceutical company Eisai Inc. While intended to help those suffering from weight-related medical problems, it appears the manufacturer knew or should have known that Belviq may increase the risk of cancer.

    After a five-year study, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded those taking Belviq were more likely to be diagnosed with a wide range of cancers than those taking a placebo. This includes pancreatic, lung, and colorectal cancer, and as a result, the FDA issued a recall of Belviq in February 2020.

    Various lawsuits are currently being pursued against those responsible. So, if you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer after taking Belviq, Belviq XR, or Lorcaserin, you may have a right to financial compensation. Contact Kisling, Nestico & Redick today. We will explain your options and fight for everything you are entitled to.

    Background

    Belviq Cancer Risks & Allegations

    Belviq was designed to curb users’ appetites by causing users to experience fullness. However, serious concerns were allegedly not adequately disclosed.

    At the time it was introduced in 2012, some studies linked Belviq to an increased risk of tumors in lab rats. And while the FDA approved the medication, it required further safety studies.

    According to these findings, more patients taking Belviq and Lorcaserin were diagnosed with:

    • Pancreatic cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Colon cancer
    • Colorectal cancer

    It now appears that Eisai Inc ignored the cancer threat and may have put profits ahead of consumer safety by marketing Belviq without adequate research. Their neglect and misleading information may have led thousands to take the weight loss drug with a false sense of security, and subsequently resulted in many avoidable cancer diagnoses and wrongful deaths.

    In February 2020, the FDA requested that all Belviq be pulled from the market. The manufacturer complied, and anyone taking the drug should contact a healthcare professional.
