What You Need to Know About Saxenda and Stomach Paralysis

What You Need to Know About Saxenda and Stomach Paralysis

Saxenda has been a popular choice for people looking to treat Type 2 diabetes and lose weight. For years, millions have trusted this drug to help manage their health issues. However, recent reports indicate that some Saxenda side effects are more serious than many people realize. What's even more concerning is that some of these side effects are not listed on the product's packaging.

This is a troubling example of large companies making profits at the expense of consumer safety. If you or a loved one has experienced harmful side effects from using Saxenda, contact us right away. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.


What Is the Saxenda Lawsuit About?

Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of Saxenda, has been accused of failing to disclose all potential side effects of the drug. Recent reports have shown that some patients developed "stomach paralysis," or gastroparesis, after using Saxenda. Other medications in the same class, like Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Rybelsus, have also been implicated.


What Is Stomach Paralysis?

Stomach paralysis, or gastroparesis, occurs when the stomach muscles don't work properly, causing food to move slowly or unpredictably from the stomach to the small intestine. This can lead to symptoms like nausea, vomiting, and stomach discomfort.


How Do I Know if I Have Stomach Paralysis?

Symptoms of gastroparesis have been highlighted in recent lawsuits. These include:

  • Nausea and vomiting, especially after eating
  • Feeling full quickly, even with small meals
  • Bloating and stomach discomfort
  • Heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Unpredictable blood sugar levels, especially problematic for diabetics
  • Unintended weight loss and poor nutrient absorption
  • Bacterial overgrowth and the formation of solid masses (bezoars) in the stomach

If you or a loved one has experienced these symptoms, contact us. We can review your case for free to see if you might be eligible for compensation.


How Is Gastroparesis Treated?

Treatment for gastroparesis may include dietary changes (like eating smaller, more frequent meals), medications to stimulate stomach muscles, and managing any underlying conditions. Severe cases might require more intensive medical interventions.
