The 411 on Belviq Lawsuits

Belviq Lawsuit AttorneyGersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is investigating cases alleging the increased risk of cancer due to the weight loss drug Belviq and Belviq XR (“Belviq”). On February 13, 2020, the FDA announced that Eisai Inc. is voluntarily recalling the prescription drug Belviq from the U.S. market. The announcement was made after studies revealed elevated cancer risks among patients taking the weight loss drug.

If you or a loved one has used the drug Belviq and was diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to compensation from the drug manufacturer. Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is currently investigating and accepting claims on behalf of any individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer after having taken Belviq.

What Is Belviq?

Belviq is a prescription weight loss drug manufactured by Eisai, Inc. The drug was approved by the FDA in 2012 to treat obesity. The active ingredient, lorcaserin, promotes weight loss by altering signals in the patient’s brain to trigger loss of appetite and hunger. These chemical changes increases feeling of fullness – convincing the brain and body to reduce the intake of calorie and consume much less than the individual normally would. It was available by prescription in its original form and in an extended release version, Belviq X. Both are the subject of the Belviq lawsuits.

The FDA announced in February that Eisai, Inc. had voluntarily recalled the drug. This recall came after the FDA completed its review of the results from the recent CAMELLIA-TIMI 61 clinical trial by Eisai, Inc. that revealed an unacceptable increased risk of cancer with Belviq. The manufacturer had failed to warn physicians and patients of the dangers. The FDA further announced that the risks of using Belviq outweighs any benefits it may have had and recommends that patients stop taking Belviq immediately.

Eligibility for the Belviq Recall Lawsuit

If you or a loved one has taken Belviq and has been diagnosed with any type of cancer, you may be entitled to monetary compensation from the drug manufacturer, Eisai, Inc. You should immediately consult with a New York Belviq lawsuit attorney if you:

  • Have taken Belviq or Belviq XR regularly for at least 3 months.
  • Were diagnosed with pancreatic, colorectal, or lung cancers at least 6 months after your first use of the drug.
  • Were younger than 60 years old at the time of the cancer diagnosis.

If you meet any of these requirements, you should discuss your case and the possibility of compensation with an attorney. However, even if you do not meet the criteria, you should still speak with an attorney to determine if there is any legal recourse.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
