What is Belviq?

Lorcaserin, marketed under the brand name Belviq, is a weight-loss pill developed by Arena Pharmaceuticals and manufactured by Eisai Inc. The drug works to control appetite by activating brain receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that triggers feelings of satiety and satisfaction. Belviq was approved by the FDA on June 27, 2012.

Belviq Cancer Recall

Eisai Inc. withdrew Belviq from the U.S. market on Feb. 13, 2020, at the request of federal health regulators who said the drug had been linked to an increased risk for cancer. A recently completed FDA analysis of a safety study indicated that 7.7% of participants who took Belviq were diagnosed with cancer, compared to 7.1% who developed cancer after taking a placebo. Cancers reported included pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer and lung cancer, FDA said.
