Wegovy Side Effects: What You Need to Know

Wegovy Side Effects: What You Need to Know

Wegovy has long been used as a weight loss drug across the country. However, recent reports indicate that taking Wegovy increases the risk of developing a ‘paralyzed stomach,’ or gastroparesis. These are not just rumors; numerous cases have emerged where individuals have been hospitalized with severe stomach-related complications after using Wegovy for weight loss. It's tragic that these individuals trusted a company that ultimately failed them.

No one should have to suffer more health problems while seeking solutions for existing issues. Yet, here we are again, facing another example of pharmaceutical companies prioritizing profits over human lives. If you or a loved one has experienced adverse side effects from using this drug, contact us today for a free case evaluation.


Why Are Wegovy Manufacturers Being Sued?

Numerous lawsuits have been filed against Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of Wegovy. These lawsuits allege that plaintiffs suffered gastroparesis after using this drug for weight loss. The key issue revolves around the use of semaglutide in the product.

The problem is that the manufacturer knew about the risks of semaglutide but failed to disclose them to consumers. If they had, many consumers might have avoided such serious side effects by not purchasing the product.

For Novo Nordisk, profits seemed to matter more than transparency about their product’s risks. When a large company puts profits over consumer safety, it endangers millions. Holding them accountable is crucial.


What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication in the class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It treats Type 2 diabetes and obesity by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone in the body, which regulates blood sugar levels and appetite.


What Are the Risks Associated With Using Semaglutide?

While semaglutide is generally considered safe, it does have side effects. The most common are nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. However, some side effects can be extreme. One plaintiff reported vomiting multiple times a day after using Wegovy, while another claimed her “teeth fell out” due to excessive vomiting.


What Damages Can I Seek if I Was Harmed by Wegovy?

The damages you may be entitled to will depend on the specifics of your case. Generally, plaintiffs can seek economic and non-economic damages. These include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and potentially punitive damages if deemed necessary by a judge or jury.
