• June 27, 2012: FDA approves Arena Pharmaceutical’s Belviq, along with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise, for chronic weight management of adults with BMI of 30 or higher (or BMI of 27 or greater when the individual has a weight-related condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol). It was the FDA’s first approval of a weight loss drug in 13 years.
