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 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. This means that hundreds of thousands of people who thought they were doing something to improve their health were instead potentially damaging it.

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. Call today for a free case review. There’s no fee unless we win.

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

This is a drug that probably should never have been on the market, and the manufacturers need to be held accountable. Those suffering from a cancer caused by Belviq deserve compensation.


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

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

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

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

If you or a loved one took Belviq and have been diagnosed with cancer, you could be owed compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. We want to help you fight to get it.

As our client, our firm will take every legal avenue necessary to secure justice in your interest and ensure you a worry-free recovery.
