Belviq (Lorcaserin) Cancer 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.

If you or a loved one took Belviq, Belviq XR, or another brand of lorcaserin, and you were diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to compensation from the drug’s manufacturer. Fill out a free case review form to find out if you are owed money for damages.

Belviq (Lorcaserin) Cancer Lawsuit FAQs

  • 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:

    • Pancreatic cancer
    • Colorectal cancer
    • Lung cancer
  • Has the FDA Recalled Belviq?

    Yes. In February 2020, the FDA requested that Eisai pull all Belviq and Belviq XR products from the market. Eisai has complied with this request.

  • Should I Stop Taking Belviq?

    Anyone taking this drug should talk to a healthcare professional about their options.

  • Where Can I Report Belviq Side Effects?

    If you have experienced unexpected side effects from taking Belviq, you can report them to the FDA using this form. You may also want to speak with a personal injury attorney.

  • Who Is Eligible for a Belviq Lawsuit?

    If you took Belviq or its generic equivalent and were diagnosed with cancer, you should consider taking legal action against the drug’s manufacturer. If you meet these criteria, you may have a case:

    • Over the age of 18
    • Diagnosed with cancer after taking Belviq, Belviq XR, or another brand of lorcaserin

    If a loved one took this weight loss drug and was diagnosed with cancer, you may also contact us on their behalf.

  • What Can I Recover From a Belviq Lawsuit?

    Every case is unique, but people who successfully file drug or medical device lawsuits can recover money for some of the following damages:

    • Past and future medical bills (including medication, hospital stays, and in-home care)
    • Pain and suffering
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of earning capacity
    • Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)

    Broadly speaking, a plaintiff could be entitled to compensation for any past and future costs associated with their cancer diagnosis.

    Over the past 30+ years, Morgan & Morgan has recovered more than $15 billion for injured consumers.

  • How Do I Know if I Have a Case?

    Only a personal injury attorney can say whether or not you have a viable Belviq lawsuit. You should contact an attorney who can review the details of your situation and determine if you are owed money from the drug maker.

  • How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer?

    It costs nothing upfront to hire us. Morgan & Morgan operates on the contingency fee basis, which means we only get paid if we successfully resolve your case. Our fees come out of a favorable settlement or jury award, not out of your pocket.

  • What’s the First Step in Filing a Lawsuit?

    If you took Belviq and have been diagnosed with cancer, you could be owed significant compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. You should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to determine the best course of action. 

    These cases are time-sensitive, so don’t wait. Fill out a case review form to receive a free, no-obligation case evaluation. It costs nothing to get started, and we get paid only if you win. Call today.
