Loraserin is a generic name for Belviq. This is a weight-loss drug, and as with many weight loss drugs, they can be dangerous for your health. Belviq is given by prescription and is manufactured by Eisai Inc. to help people to control their appetite and lose weight. The FDA however in 2020 issued a recall of this drug because it was found to cause cancer of the pancreas and lungs. If you are still taking this drug, talk to your doctor to see if you should or should not continue to take it.Is Belviq Dangerous to Take?
According to the FDA, there is concern that lorcaserin drugs can cause various types of cancer to develop. This means everyone that takes these drugs can be potentially exposed to unnecessary risk of developing cancer. The drug should never have been allowed to enter the market.Your Rights to Compensation
A claim for compensation can be filed by those who meet certain criteria. If you or a loved one took Belviq and later developed cancer, then you have the right to file a claim for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering that was caused by taking the drug.
