Potential Dangers of Trulicity: What You Need to Know - weightloss drugs

Trulicity is a well-known medication used to treat diabetes and promote weight loss. However, it's important to be aware of its potential side effects before deciding if it's the right choice for you or your loved one. Unfortunately, the manufacturers did not fully disclose all the side effects associated with this drug. As a result, many individuals have experienced serious complications from using Trulicity and other similar medications. If you or a loved one has suffered adverse side effects from using this drug, contact Morgan and Morgan today for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to compensation for any injuries and losses incurred.

What Are Some Common Trulicity Side Effects?

Some of the common side effects of Trulicity, as disclosed by the manufacturer, include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, indigestion, fatigue, and reduced appetite. However, since Trulicity contains dulaglutide, there may be additional side effects you should be aware of. For instance, this ingredient can cause gastrointestinal complications such as gastroparesis.

Understanding Gastroparesis: A Hidden Risk

Gastroparesis involves the weakening of stomach muscles, causing the stomach to retain food longer than usual. This delay can lead to feeling less hungry, which is a key reason behind the weight loss effects of Trulicity. However, gastroparesis can also result in serious complications, including severe stomach pain, uncontrollable vomiting, and bloating.

What Should You Do if You Experience Severe Side Effects From Trulicity?

If you experience severe side effects from using Trulicity, it is crucial to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Afterward, contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case evaluation to determine if you may be entitled to compensation.

Can You Sue the Makers of Trulicity?

Given that Trulicity contains dulaglutide, you would expect the manufacturer to fully disclose all associated side effects. However, failing to do so can be grounds for holding them accountable. If the manufacturer did not properly warn you about the possible gastrointestinal complications, you might have a valid claim against them.

What Damages Can You Recover if You Win Your Lawsuit?

If you receive medical treatment due to side effects from Trulicity, you may be eligible for compensation for the treatment costs. Additionally, you might recover damages for pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and other related losses.
