Mounjaro Side Effects: What You Need to Know

Mounjaro Side Effects: What You Need to Know

It has come to our attention that some users of Mounjaro, a popular self-injected drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes, have reported serious side effects. One of the most concerning Mounjaro side effects is gastroparesis, which is essentially a "paralyzed stomach." The major issue here is that Eli Lilly, the manufacturer of Mounjaro, did not disclose these potential side effects to consumers.

As a result, many people continued using the injection without fully understanding the risks involved. CNN reported that one victim "suffered from severe vomiting, gastrointestinal burning, stomach pain, and was hospitalized several times." If you or a loved one has experienced any of these side effects or similar symptoms after using Mounjaro, tell us about your case; you may be eligible for compensation.


What Is Gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is a medical condition that affects the normal movement of the stomach muscles. This disruption causes delayed emptying of the stomach contents into the small intestine. The term "gastroparesis" combines "gastro" (relating to the stomach) and "paresis" (meaning weakness or paralysis).


What Are Some Common Symptoms of Gastroparesis?

Individuals suffering from gastroparesis experience a variety of symptoms. Some of the most common include:

  • Nausea and vomiting, especially after eating
  • Early satiety, feeling full after consuming only a small amount of food
  • Bloating and constipation due to delayed stomach emptying
  • Heartburn and GERD symptoms caused by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus
  • Mild to severe abdominal pain, which can be intermittent or chronic
  • Disruption of blood sugar control, making food absorption timing unpredictable
  • Inadequate nutrient absorption leading to malnutrition and unintended weight loss
  • Reduced appetite due to the discomfort and symptoms associated with gastroparesis


I Have Been Using Mounjaro for a While. Do I Have a Case Against Eli Lilly?

When you buy a drug, you expect it to serve its purpose, which in this case is managing Type 2 diabetes. Like any medication, some side effects are normal. What's abnormal is the manufacturer's failure to disclose these side effects.

Eli Lilly knew that using key ingredients like semaglutide and tirzepatide in Mounjaro could increase the risk of stomach paralysis. However, they didn't share this information with consumers. This lack of transparency prioritizes profits over human lives.

Think about it: would you purchase a product if you knew it would cause you more harm than good? Probably not.
