ARKANSAS BELVIQ® INJURY LAWYERS
Weight Loss Supplement Injury Attorneys In Arkansas
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approves various drugs annually. But while all FDA-approved drugs are intended to help with various issues, sometimes they end up doing harm. Unfortunately, this often goes undiscovered until many people have been injured or killed.
Weight-loss supplements have been around for decades. While they are intended to help people lose weight, one such drug, Belviq® (generic name lorcaserin), has been found to cause harm.
Caddell Reynolds Law Firm is committed to holding manufacturers and marketers of harmful drugs accountable for the injury they cause. We have represented thousands of patients in dangerous drug litigation and have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
Side Effects Of Belviq®
After five years of research, the FDA has found that Belviq® and Belviq XR increase the risk of cancer in those who take the medication. In response, the FDA has pulled all Belviq® and lorcaserin products from the U.S. market.
Belviq® works by changing the chemical signals of the brain, which are responsible for appetite. This increases the consumer’s feeling of fullness, helping them eat less and lose more weight.
Unfortunately, a study of 12,000 participants showed that those taking Belviq® had a higher cancer diagnosis rate than those who took a placebo (7.7 percent compared to 7.1 percent).
Cancers associated with Belviq® include:
- Colon cancer
- Lung cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
Cancers potentially associated with Belviq® include:
- Brain cancer
- Breast cancer
Side effects and complications of Belviq® include:
- Dry mouth
- Mental difficulties
