About Belviq®

Belviq® (lorcaserin hydrochloride) is a weight loss drug manufactured by Japanese drug-maker Eisai approved by the FDA in 2012. It is a serotonin 2C receptor agonist that works by affecting chemical signals in the brain to control appetite. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that triggers feelings of satiety and satisfaction so by targeting serotonin receptors that affect appetite and keeping them bathed in serotonin, the user will not feel hungry and will eat less.


Injury Risks

There have been concerns in the past over tumors in laboratory animals potentially caused by Belviq®. According to the results of a later study required by the FDA, those patients in the study who took lorcaserin were found to be diagnosed with cancer more often than patients who took the placebo. While a range of cancer types were reported, pancreatic, colorectal and lung cancer were diagnosed disproportionately more often in the group of patients taking lorcaserin than the placebo. Belviq® and Belviq® XR were voluntarily removed from the market by Eisai in February 2020 following a request by the FDA for them to do so.
