Do you know what Ozempic is?

Ozempic (semaglutide) is an injection of 0.5- 2 mg, an injectable prescribed medicine used by type 2 – diabetic patients to lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death. Also, some of them are used for weight loss.

It is unknown if Ozempic can be used in people with pancreatitis. Also, it has yet to be discovered that it is safe and effective for children under 18.

Ozempic is not for use in people with type 1 diabetes.

What is the most essential information about Ozempic?

Ozempic may cause serious side effects, including:

Thyroid tumors, which include cancer. If any lump or swelling appears in your neck, you have trouble swallowing or shortness of breath. These may be symptoms of thyroid cancer. In studies, Ozempic and medicines that work like Ozempic caused thyroid tumors, including thyroid cancer. 

It is unknown if Ozempic will cause thyroid tumors or medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in people. 

Does Ozempic Work for Weight Loss?

Although there is no evidence that the U.S. FDA has yet to approve Ozempic to help lose weight, research has shown that it’s efficacious in aiding people in losing weight. Semaglutide, which is Ozempic’s active ingredient, is proven to aid in losing around 15 percent in body fat under Novo Nordisk’s study, which was reported in The Lancet. When people take Ozempic to treat Type 2 diabetes, weight reduction is among its results.

Ozempic mimics the hormone GLP-1 released into the digestive tract after eating. GLP-1 triggers your body to produce more insulin, which aids in reducing blood sugar levels. It also triggers a sense of fullness and decreased appetite in the brain. It can lead people to eat fewer meals.

What are the side effects caused by Ozempic?

Ozempic may cause serious side effects:

Inflammation of your pancreas

Stop using Ozempic and call your doctor immediately if you have severe pain in the abdomen, with or without vomiting. You may feel the pain from your abdomen to your back.

Vision changes. Consult if you are facing vision changes after taking Ozempic.

Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). The risk of low blood sugar may get higher if you use Ozempic. It may include dizziness, blurry vision, anxiety, sweating, slurred speech, hunger, confusion, shakiness, weakness, headache, fast heartbeat, and jittery.

Kidney problems. 

People with kidney issues, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may experience a loss of fluids, which leads to kidney failure. It would be best if you drank fluids to reduce your chance of dehydration.

Allergic reactions. 

Stop using Ozempic if getting severe allergic reactions, including swelling, problems breathing or swallowing, rash or itching, fainting or very rapid heartbeat.

Gallbladder issues. 

Gallbladder problems are seen in some people who take Ozempic. Immediately get help if you get symptoms, including pain in the abdomen, fever, jaundice, or stool-related problems.

Why Are People Filing Ozempic Lawsuits?

As of August 2023, Ozempic lawsuits were still in the early stages, and there have been no global settlements or jury trials. 

Jaclyn Bjorklund filed one of Louisiana’s first Ozempic gastroparesis lawsuits on August 2, 2023.

The lawsuits allege Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of Ozempic, made billions in sales by marketing Ozempic but failed to warn consumers the drug carries dangerous side effects. 

Who Qualifies to File an Ozempic Lawsuit?

You could be able to start an Ozempic lawsuit if you used Ozempic to lose weight or for another reason and you suffered from gastroparesis. Currently, lawyers are taking claims from those who have had severe gastroparesis that resulted in vomiting for four months or longer.

You cannot be eligible if you underwent gastric bypass surgery, gastric banding, or sleeve surgery before undergoing Ozempic. Furthermore, lawyers are not accepting Ozempic cases if they are undergoing treatment for cancer.

These guidelines are only guidelines, but only an Ozempic lawyer can determine whether you can bring a lawsuit. Contact an attorney right away for a no-cost case review and protect your right to file a lawsuit in exchange for the possibility of damages. You could only have a concise time frame to file based on your state and time frame.
