Emerging concerns have raised questions about the possible link between the widely-prescribed type 2 diabetes drug, Ozempic, and severe gastrointestinal complications, notably gastroparesis.

If you or a loved one have faced similar health challenges after taking Ozempic, it’s essential to understand your rights, potential risks, and how we are dedicated to helping you navigate this complex situation to seek justice and compensation.

Understanding the Issue

Ozempic and Mounjaro belong to a class of medication known as GLP-1 agonists. While they have been prescribed as a treatment for type 2 diabetes and even off-label for obesity, there have been alarming reports of patients suffering from severe stomach issues after injecting the drug into your system.

Gastroparesis, sometimes referred to as stomach paralysis, is a concerning condition where the stomach cannot empty itself of food in a normal fashion. This can lead to symptoms like persistent vomiting and severe discomfort. While gastroparesis can result from various underlying medical issues, there is growing concern about its association with GLP-1 agonists such as Ozempic.

The Current Situation

Recently, a lawsuit filed against the makers of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk, and another GLP-1 agonist, Mounjaro, claimed that a patient was “severely injured” after taking these medications. The plaintiff is reportedly experiencing “persistent” vomiting and severe gastroparesis.

While the prescribing information for both these drugs mentions “delays gastric emptying,” the term “gastroparesis” isn’t explicitly listed. The direct relationship between GLP-1 medications and gastroparesis remains under investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Your Right to Justice

If you believe you’ve been affected by Ozempic or a similar drug, it’s crucial to act swiftly:

  • Medical Assessment: Consult with your healthcare professional about your symptoms and concerns.
  • Documentation: Maintain a detailed record of your medical history, including when you started taking the drug, the dosage, and any adverse effects experienced.
  • Legal Consultation: Contact The Ruth Law Team for a free, confidential consultation to discuss your potential case.
