Ozempic Side Effects

You’ve probably seen Ozempic commercials on TV on numerous occasions. This self-injected drug promises to treat Type 2 diabetes and, to some extent, promote weight loss. At least, that’s what Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer, wants you to know. However, what you don’t see in these commercials is that this drug has also been linked to serious cases of gastroparesis. This refers to a situation where users of this drug suffer from “stomach paralysis.” Does that sound like something you or a loved one is dealing with? Read on to learn more about how we might be able to help.

Morgan & Morgan

  • How Does Ozempic Cause Gastroparesis?

    To understand the link between Ozempic and gastroparesis, let’s start with the two active ingredients in this drug — semaglutide and tirzepatide. These two are known as GLP-1 agonists or glucagon-like peptide-1 agonists.

    These are a class of medications commonly used to treat Type 2 diabetes. They mimic the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body, which is produced in the intestines and helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite.

  • What Are the Risks of Using GLP-1 Agonists?

    For starters, GLP-1 agonists are generally considered safe and effective for treating Type 2 diabetes. However, like any medication, they can have potential side effects and risks that need to be carefully considered or, at the very least, disclosed by the manufacturer. These drugs are known to cause extreme nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and gastroparesis.

  • How Can I Sue if the Side Effects of Ozempic Are Already Known?

    Here’s the issue; the manufacturer did not fully disclose the risks of taking this medication. Instead, they choose what to disclose and what to hide. Gastroparesis is one of the side effects Novo Nordisk failed to disclose. As a result, there have been reports of many users being violently sick after using the medicine.

  • How Do I Prove My Case if I’ve Been Harmed by Ozempic?

    Evidence such as medical records and receipts can help prove that you were harmed by this drug. That said, each case is unique, even though the side effects might be similar in most cases. It is only after having your case professionally and thoroughly investigated by the team at Morgan and Morgan that you will understand if it is valid and the kind of evidence you’ll need to establish liability. 

  • You May Have a Case Against Novo Nordisk
