Is the Weight-Loss Drug Belviq Dangerous?

According to a new study, Belviq has been linked to an increased risk of pancreatic, colorectal, or lung cancer. In addition, the FDA requested that the manufacturer of Belviq voluntarily recall the drug from the U.S. market.

Belviq was designed as a prescription drug for those who were unable to lose weight through diet and exercise. The active ingredient was supposed to give users the feeling of being full, curbing their appetite.

However, there have been serious concerns about the potential cancer diagnosis with Belviq, which were not adequately disclosed by the manufacturer.

Belviq XR Recalled After Linked to Lung Cancer: FDA

Belviq and Belviq XR were first approved by the FDA in 2012 based on the requirement that the manufacturer Eisai complete post-marketing clinical trials.

This double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial included 12,000 people over five years and revealed that patients taking the drug had an increased risk of cancer.

On February 13, 2020, the FDA pulled Belviq from the market due to the potential increased cancer risks.

It now appears that the drug manufacturer ignored clear signs about the Belviq cancer risk and placed their desire for profits before consumer safety.
