Finally Arena Pharmas Belviq Gets FDA Approval

FDA Approves Diet Pill Belviq

The USA FDA doesn’t approve all the presription based diet pills easily. However, today they have approved Arena Pharmaceutical’s Belviq (lorcaserin hydrochloride) 2 years ago, FDA’s review panel has rejected it citing safety concers. The review panel was conrned about Belviq’s potential side effects which found to be sever. However, the manufacturer successfully argued & defended that “the small side effects are nothing compared to the life threatening effects of obesity.

Accordig WebMd “The approval is specifically for use in adults with a BMI above 30 (considered obese), and for adults with a BMI of 27 (considered overweight) or above if they also have at least one weight-related medical condition, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.”

The FDA is still expressing concers that, the drug may lead to breast tumor or heart valve problem.

Only time will tell how effective this drug going to be.
