Belviq® was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2012 and sold to consumers in 2013 as a way to help users manage their weight. Clinical trials have now shown a link between Belviq, also known as lorcaserin, and certain types of cancer.

We believe that anyone harmed by this medication has the right to compensation for the damages they’re experiencing. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer after taking lorcaserin, contact our team today to schedule a free consultation.

The Link Between Belviq and Cancer

The FDA recalled Belviq in February 2020 after discovering an association between the medication and cancer. The three types of cancer most closely linked to Belviq are pancreatic, lung, and colorectal cancers.

The manufacturer of Belviq, Eisai Co., has yet to agree with the FDA’s assessment that the risks of Belviq outweigh the potential benefits for weight management. But Eisai Co. has complied with the FDA’s request to recall the drug.

The seven-year gap between the sell and recall of Belviq means that far too many consumers were put at risk by Eisai’s dangerous product. For those who have been diagnosed with cancer after taking Belviq, legal options are available.

Cancer Patients Who Took Belviq Should Explore Their Legal Options

Anyone who took Belviq and is now living with lung, pancreatic, or colorectal cancer has the right to consider legal action against Eisai Co. By filing a drug injury claim, these cancer patients can recover compensation that helps them with all past and future damages caused by Belviq.

Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their products. When they fall short of that obligation, they should be held accountable for the costs facing consumers who trusted the safety of their products.

We have years of experience getting compensation for people injured by the negligence of manufacturers. Let us help you find a path forward.

If you or someone you love took lorcaserin and has since been diagnosed with cancer, you should explore your legal options. Contact our team today to schedule a free, no-obligation case assessment.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
