Why You Should File a Belviq Lawsuit
You can file a Belviq lawsuit if you or a loved one has developed a cancer as a result of the Belviq drug. You may have to deal with the costs of your treatments and your pain and suffering. The doctors who prescribed the drug may be partly responsible for the side effects of Belviq, as they were not required to warn patients about this risk. Georgia law covers product liability, which means you do not need to buy the drug to file a lawsuit.
Despite its safety, the FDA has not yet approved Belviq for sale in the United States. As a result, many lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of the drug. Arena Pharmaceutical, the company that manufactures Belviq, is facing hundreds of lawsuits related to the drug. The company is currently investigating the claims made by patients. While many of these lawsuits are filed against the manufacturer of Belviq, if there are enough cases, the company can be forced to take action.
In the meantime, the drug manufacturer has agreed to remove Belviq from the market. You may be entitled to compensation if you have contracted cancer from this drug. As an additional benefit, you can choose to dispose of your drug in a safe manner. The drug’s makers should also make a full investigation of the risks associated with Belviq, as well as the drug’s other side effects. A Belviq lawsuit could help you receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
In addition to these lawsuits, the FDA has recently recalled Belviq from the market. After the drug was approved by the FDA, it was linked to several different cancers in women. Despite the numerous findings, the FDA still approved Belviq despite knowing the risks associated with the drug. It is unclear why the company failed to warn the public about these risks. If they had, they could have avoided millions of dollars in losses.
After the FDA found a connection between Belviq and cancer, the drug was removed from U.S. shelves in February 2020. The drug’s manufacturers, Eisai Inc., voluntarily recalled Belviq and other versions of the drug because they disagreed with the FDA’s conclusions. The FDA decision led to a large number of Belviq lawsuits. A Belviq lawsuit can help you obtain significant financial compensation for your damages.
Arena Pharmaceuticals filed an application with the FDA for approval of Belviq on Dec. 22, 2009 based on data from 18 clinical trials. The European Medicines Agency (EMA) rejected the drug in 2012 after hearing from the drug maker. The FDA also requested that the drug be withdrawn from the market in Europe after the European Medicines Agency raised concerns about the drug. It is not clear whether this withdrawal will affect the sales of Belviq in the U.S. or in other countries.
The FDA ordered a randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the risk of cancer from the weight loss drug Belviq. As a result, many women filed Belviq lawsuits.
