FDA Belviq Drug Recall

Eisai Inc., the maker of a weight-loss diet pill, pulled it from the market mid-February 2020, at the request of federal regulators, who said it posed an increased risk of cancer. Here we answer some of the frequently asked questions we receive from our clients. 

Why was Belviq recalled?

Following the results of a recent clinical trial assessing safety, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been immediately recalled amid concern that the weight-loss drug lorcaserin (Belviq) may increase the risk of cancer. The drug manufacturer, Eisai Inc., has submitted a request to withdraw the drug from the U.S. market voluntarily.

What types of cancer can it cause?

A range of cancer types was reported to patients who participated in the trial, with several different types of cancers occurring more frequently in the lorcaserin group, including pancreatic, colorectal, and lung. The trend of higher cancer rates in Belviq patients appeared as patients took the drug for more extended periods.

What should patients do now?

Patients taking Belviq and Belviq XR, brand name versions of weight-loss drug lorcaserin, are asked to stop taking them and talk to their doctors about other weight-loss methods and medications. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, our product liability attorneys, may move forward with your case and collect the compensation you deserve.
