What Is Ozempic?

Ozempic is the brand name for an injectable form of semaglutide – a medication that is used to treat diabetes and off-label as a weight loss drug.  It was developed by Novo Nordisk in 2012 and approved for use in the United States in 2017.

Ozempic belongs to a class of drugs known as Glucagon-like peptide-1 agonists (GLP-1) and works by helping lower blood sugar, increasing pancreas production of insulin. It is used for weight loss because it causes food to travel more slowly through the digestive tract and helps individuals feel fuller for longer. However, there are many undesirable side effects that may accompany the use of this drug.

Health Concerns Linked To Use Of Ozempic

Patients who use Ozempic for both diabetes and weight loss may experience side effects such as:

  • Gastroparesis (stomach paralysis)
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • And more

Gastroparesis is a serious condition that causes paralysis of the stomach. When a stomach functions well, food is moved through the digestive tract via muscle contractions, however, when someone has gastroparesis, the movement of food through the stomach is significantly slowed down, or in some cases, does not happen at all. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for this condition. Signs and symptoms of gastroparesis include:

  • Vomiting undigested food consumed only hours prior
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal bloating and pain
  • Blocked intestines
  • Feeling full after a few bites of food
  • Lack of appetite
  • Acid reflux
  • Malnutrition
  • And more

Who Is Eligible To File an Ozempic Lawsuit?

You may be eligible to file a claim if you used Ozempic and developed any of the above-listed side effects. It is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible to begin filing so that you can gather the necessary evidence to build a sound claim.  Some of the first Ozempic lawsuits were filed in August of 2023, but many other claims are being investigated.

Damages You Can Recover

If you have suffered any of the previously mentioned side effects from the use of Ozempic, you may be able to obtain compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death
  • And more
