Belviq Lawsuit

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.


Too Great a Risk


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


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. At Jone's Law firm, our attorneys have been fighting for people like you for over 30 years, and we’ve recovered more than $7 billion for our clients to date. Our clients never have to pay any upfront fees, and the consultation is always free and discreet. Don’t wait. Call today. This is a drug that probably should never have been on the market, and the manufacturers need to be held accountable. Those suffering from cancer caused by Belviq deserve compensation.
