Weight Loss Drug Lawsuit Ozempic Wegovy

Weight Loss Drug Lawsuit

A few popular weight loss drugs including Ozempic and Wegovy may cause potentially severe and long-lasting side effects, prompting Phillips Law Group to investigate whether or not manufacturers of the drugs appropriately warned doctors and patients of the risks of taking the medications. Following reports of stomach paralysis and other gastrointestinal side effects, our firm may take legal action against the manufacturers of these drugs, and we urge you to contact us if you took medication to lose weight and may be eligible to pursue a weight loss drug lawsuit.

A July 2023 report from CNN revealed that two patients on diabetes or weight management drugs Ozempic and Wegovy were diagnosed with severe gastroparesis, or stomach paralysis, and that doctors believe the side effect “may have resulted from or been exacerbated by the medication they were taking.”

Diabetes drugs Ozempic and Wegovy use the same medication, semaglutide, to mimic a naturally occurring hormone, GLP-1, that slows the passage of food through the stomach. Although it acts as a way for people to feel fuller longer, in the case of these two patients, both reportedly became seriously ill after taking Ozempic injections.

According to the article, the US Food and Drug Administration noted it has received reports of people on the drugs experiencing stomach paralysis that, in some cases, had not resolved by the time the reports were made.

As part of a potential weight loss drug lawsuit, Phillips Law Group is investigating claims against the makers of Ozempic and related medications. Drug manufacturers Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly and Co. may not have adequately warned patients about the risk of gastrointestinal side effects involved in taking these weight loss drugs, and individuals who took the medication and experienced adverse side effects may be entitled to compensation.
