What Is Ozempic and How Could It Be Causing You Harm?

Ozempic is a medication that has been widely advertised as a leading treatment for helping to improve blood sugar levels in adults who have type 2 diabetes. It has also become extremely popular for helping patients to lose weight.

Unfortunately, continued use of Ozempic is causing hundreds of patients to suffer severe gastrointestinal issues. Common complaints about the drug include:

  • Severe stomach pain
  • Nausea and violent vomiting
  • Cramping
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Delayed stomach emptying (gastroparesis)
  • Intestinal blockage (ileus)

Why Are the Ozempic Lawsuits About?

Patients are suing Novo Nordisk, the Danish drug company that manufacturers Ozempic. The primary claim is that Novo failed to warn consumers or their doctors about certain serious complications of taking Ozempic. Gastroparesis is one of the most common complications of patients taking Ozempic.

What Is Gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is a serious medical condition where the stomach muscles do not work properly. Food takes much longer than normal to process.

This delayed or reduced functioning of the stomach is a chronic condition that does not go away on its own.

According to the UCLA School of medicine, there are three stages of gastroparesis:

  • Mild Gastroparesis: This is slow stomach emptying. However, it is relatively mild and does not significantly impact a patient’s overall quality of life.
  • Moderate Gastroparesis: In the second stage, delayed stomach emptying is more pronounced, and sufferers experience more symptoms and more pain.
  • Severe Gastroparesis: In this most advanced stage of gastroparesis, patients have significantly impaired stomach emptying. This delay in processing food can cause a number of other serious problems, including malnutrition due to absorption problems.

How Do I Know If I Am Eligible To File a Lawsuit Against Ozempic?

If you were prescribed Ozempic to treat diabetes or manage your weight loss, you may be eligible. Other factors that need to be considered for eligibility include the following:

  • Do you have medical records or a prescription that showed you took Ozempic?
  • Did you take Ozempic for at least 30 days?
  • Were you diagnosed with an adverse complication or medical condition, such as ileus, gastroenteritis or gastroparesis?
  • Were your symptoms severe enough to require medical attention?

While there is no real cure for this condition, symptoms can be managed.

There are multiple treatments and therapies that can help patients to manage the systems. Depending on what stage of gastroparesis a patient has, more intensive treatment may be required.

Treatments may include:

  • Dietary changes: Eating smaller, more frequent meals in a day instead of three large meals is better for people suffering from gastroparesis. Additionally, it is vital that these individuals also avoid a diet that is too high in fiber or difficult to digest, such as kale, legumes, citrus fruits or fatty foods. Foods that are lower in both fat and fiber are easier to digest.
  • Medications: Certain drugs, such as metoclopramide, or Reglan, and erythromycin help to stimulate stomach muscles. This medication, along with others, would likely be more beneficial to people with stage two or three gastroparesis.
  • Physical activity: Exercise and other types of physical activity have been found to be extremely effective at helping to manage symptoms of gastroparesis. Individuals should aim to engage in mild to moderate activity that could include a minimum of 30 minutes of things like walking, yoga, cycling, Pilates or Tai Chi.

How Much Could an Ozempic Lawsuit Be Worth?

It is not possible to determine the value of an Ozempic lawsuit without considering multiple unique factors of each case.

Generally speaking, if taking Ozempic led to severe medical complications, such as gastroparesis or even tooth loss, you may be eligible to recover compensation for certain damages, such as:

  • Medical costs
  • Specialized treatments
  • Medication to treat your symptoms
  • Follow-up doctor’s appointments
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • And more
