Tepezza Side Effects

When you are given a prescription medication from a licensed care provider, you should be able to trust that the product is safe. If a product goes to market and causes harm to the people who use it, those victims deserve justice. 

Tepezza is a medication prescribed to treat thyroid eye disease (TED). This medical condition causes the muscles and fatty tissues behind the eyes to become inflamed.  

Thyroid eye disease results in bulging eyes. The condition is known as “proptosis” and can lead to vision problems and other complications. 

Unfortunately, Tepezza has been linked to numerous side effects. If you or someone you love has experienced Tepezza side effects, make sure that you speak with a legal professional.  

Negligent pharmaceutical companies should be held accountable for the damage that their products cause. The legal team at Morgan & Morgan has the skills and knowledge to fight effectively for victims of the unexpected side effects caused by Tepezza.  

Some patients who used Tepezza have reported significant and long-lasting hearing loss. This medical condition can result in significant financial and personal losses.  

To pursue a legal claim for compensation for Tepezza’s side effects, reach out to the knowledgeable attorneys at Morgan and Morgan. Our compassionate team will schedule a no-cost case evaluation for you when you complete our online contact form.

What Is Tepezza?

The active ingredient in Tepezza is teprotumumab. This prescription medication works by targeting a protein called insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-1R). The protein is involved in the development of thyroid eye disease. 

By blocking the IGF-1R activity, Tepezza reduces inflammation and swelling behind the eyes. This effect can improve common TED symptoms in patients.  

The severity and symptoms of thyroid eye disease can vary widely from person to person. Some of the most common effects of the condition include the following:

Proptosis — Bulging of the Eyes

Eye bulging is one of the characteristic symptoms of TED. Proptosis happens when the inflamed tissues behind the eyes push the eyes forward. This makes the eyes appear to be coming out of their sockets.

Red, Swollen, Puffy Eyes

The inflamed tissues behind the eyes can cause: 

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Puffiness around the eyes 

If you have experienced these symptoms, it is important to speak with a medical professional. It is critical to seek treatment for thyroid eye disease as soon as possible.

Double Vision 

Thyroid eye disease can also impact a person’s field of vision, or the way they see. The inflamed muscles behind the eyes can cause the eyes to be misaligned, resulting in double vision.

Eye Pain and Discomfort

The inflamed tissues behind the eyes can cause pain, pressure, and discomfort in and around the eye sockets. If you’re not sure about what’s causing your eye pain, speak with a doctor promptly.

Dry Eyes

Inflammation of the ocular tissue can affect the tear glands as well. This can result in dryness and irritation in the patient’s eyes. 

Difficulty Closing the Eyes

In some cases, the inflamed muscles behind the eyes can make it difficult for the eyelids to close. This symptom can result in additional dryness and irritation.

Changes in Vision 

In severe cases, TED can cause significant changes in vision. These changes may include the following:  

  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of vision
  • Loss of peripheral vision

Not everyone with TED will experience all the symptoms listed above. The severity of the condition will be different for every person.  

If you suffer from TED, a trained healthcare provider can offer you a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Unfortunately, some patients receive treatment that leads to Tepezza side effects. 

Tepezza is a drug that is administered intravenously (IV) over a period of several hours. Typically, the treatment is provided in an outpatient setting.  

Tepezza treatment usually involves eight infusions given over the course of about six months. However, the exact dosing and duration of treatment will differ depending on the patient’s needs.  

Tepezza was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020, and it is available only by prescription from a healthcare provider. Despite its approval, many patients have cited significant and harmful Tepezza side effects. 

What Are Common Tepezza Side Effects?

Teprotumumab, the active ingredient in Tepezza, can cause unwanted outcomes for those who use the medication. If you or a loved one experiences any of the common side effects after using Tepezza, speak with a doctor immediately.  

Some of the most common side effects of Tepezza include these: 

  • Sweating
  • Dry mouth
  • Blurry vision 
  • Dry, flushed skin
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Increased need to urinate
  • Increased hunger and thirst
  • Stomach and abdominal pain

These symptoms are common and should be addressed by a physician as quickly as possible. However, other patients experience less common Tepezza side effects.  

Some atypical side effects are serious and require immediate medical attention. Patients who are allergic to the ingredients in Tepezza may experience the following symptoms: 

  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of the lips, face, and tongue 

Also, patients with autoimmune disorders may suffer a worsening of that condition’s associated symptoms. Tepezza can increase negative outcomes from conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.  

No matter the severity of your Tepezza side effects, it is vital to speak with a knowledgeable attorney. The skilled legal team at Morgan & Morgan is ready to help you.

Product Liability Claims

Tort claims related to pharmaceutical products are generally called “product liability claims.” These legal cases arise when a person is harmed by a defective or dangerous pharmaceutical product like Tepezza. 

Product liability claims may be based on several types of defects. Some of the most common examples include those below.

Manufacturing Defects

These are defects that occur during the manufacturing process and make a product dangerous or defective.

Design Defects

These are defects that are inherent in the design of the product, making it unreasonably dangerous.

Marketing Defects

These are defects that arise from inadequate or improper warning labels, instructions, or advertising for the product. 

In the case of pharmaceutical products, product liability claims may also involve allegations of inadequate testing or disclosure of potential side effects. You may also be able to file a successful claim if you suffered because of fraudulent or deceptive marketing. 

If you think you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective or dangerous pharmaceutical product, contact Morgan & Morgan. You may be able to file a product liability claim to seek compensation for your injuries.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover Through a Tepezza Lawsuit?

    When you file a claim for damages following the use of Tepezza, you may wonder what types of compensation you can recover. The financial repayment you can obtain will depend on the specific facts of your case. 

    Some of the most typical examples of damages awarded in pharmaceutical product liability claims cover the following items: 

    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Emotional anguish and turmoil
    • Missed income and lost wages
    • Past and present medical costs
    • Expected costs of ongoing care
    • Diminished long-term earning capacity

    You can also claim damages for the loss of quality of life. Tinnitus and hearing loss can make a victim’s life less enjoyable in many ways. Loss of hearing can cause the victim significant difficulties every day. 

    Speak with the team at Morgan and Morgan to accurately determine the value of your Tepezza liability claim.

  • What Is the Statute of Limitations on Tepezza-Related Claims?

    The statute of limitations is a legal time limit by which the victim of a hazardous product must pursue compensation. Failing to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires will most likely result in the dismissal of your tort case. 

    The statute of limitations for pharmaceutical product liability cases varies by state. Because of this, you should contact a law firm with plenty of experience representing claimants in the state where you reside. 

    Fortunately, Morgan & Morgan has decades of experience representing victims across the United States. Our team of legal professionals knows how to successfully fight for clients in every state in the nation.  

    Do not allow the statute of limitations to pass in your case. Speak with a Morgan and Morgan associate as soon as possible.
