Tepezza Lawyer

Tepezza is a drug used to treat people with symptoms of thyroid eye disease (TED), and it is FDA-approved. Unfortunately, a number of people who took the drug later suffered from hearing loss, and a 2021 study found that patients taking Tepezza were at a 65 percent higher risk for developing temporary or permanent hearing issues. This has led to at least one major Tepezza lawsuit, and our defective product lawyers are now looking to represent individuals who suffered hearing loss or ringing of the ears after taking the drug. 

Tepezza was approved in 2020, and an untold number of patients may have been prescribed the medicine in the past few years since. Many individuals out of those patients may have suffered hearing problems since taking the drug, considering the high risk of developing issues discovered in a 2021 study. 

Hearing loss can have a major impact on a person’s ability to work or perform basic tasks, and on their health, mental health, and quality of life. Permanent hearing loss can be a devastating and debilitating condition. 

A 2021 study found that the potential risk of developing temporary and permanent hearing issues was over six times higher than the initial estimated risk of hearing loss claimed by Horizon Therapeutics® during the FDA approval process. If Horizon Therapeutics did not adequately warn of the actual risk of Tepezza, the company should be held liable for the harm caused to people who took the drug.
