Our Cases Against Ozempic: What You Need to Know

Our Memphis dangerous drugs lawyers recently announced a lawsuit against the blockbuster weight loss drugs Ozempic, Mounjaro, and more. We’re including the below Memphis Ozempic lawsuit FAQs to help you understand the situation.

These are major drugs that have brought their manufacturers billions in revenue. So what went wrong, who did it impact, and what should you do if you were injured by a weight loss drug?

Which drugs does this lawsuit include?

We are currently pursuing cases against Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus (all manufactured by Novo Nordisk), as well as Trulicity and Mounjaro (manufactured by Eli Lilly).

Why are you suing?

Ozempic and other semaglutide weight loss drugs have been found to cause stomach paralysis or gastroparesis.

This serious condition causes the stomach to stop working. As a result, victims may not be able to digest food, which can have drastic consequences.

Symptoms of stomach paralysis include:

  • Vomiting undigested, even whole, food
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Feeling very full on only a few bites of food
  • Acid reflux
  • Extreme blood sugar changes
  • Weight loss and severe malnutrition

These injuries can cause long-term damage and take extreme measures to repair. We believe it’s time to hold the drug companies responsible for what their drugs are doing to unsuspecting patients.

How do I know if I have a case?

These drugs are affecting a lot of people’s digestion. And in fact, that’s by design: when working properly, they usually lower your appetite and make it easier to feel full. As a result, mild digestive issues don’t necessarily mean you have a case.

We’re speaking with anyone who:

  • Is 75 years old or younger
  • Took Ozempic or another weight loss drug under a doctor’s prescription, and
  • Was hospitalized as a result.

If the description above applies to you or a loved one, contact us today for a free consultation.

I have symptoms of gastroparesis. What should I do?

Seek medical attention immediately. We aren’t medical professionals, so we can’t offer health guidance. However, many of the cases we’ve seen are very serious.

If your symptoms require hospitalization, you may be entitled to compensation and should contact us.

Did the drug companies know?

We believe the drug companies knew, or should have known, and did not do enough to warn patients of potential risks. For example, drug companies have the option to add a black box label as a warning for dangerous side effects. At the time of this writing, the major weight loss drug manufacturers have not included this type of warning.

I took Ozempic through a med spa. Could I have a case?

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to pursue cases if you were given these medications by a med spa or friend. We are speaking with patients whose doctor prescribed these drugs.

However, they could have been prescribed for any purpose, including diabetes.

Are you suing my doctor?

No, we are only pursuing cases against the drug manufacturers. Doctors are our allies in helping our clients stay well and recover if injured. Our attorneys do handle medical malpractice, but those are different kinds of cases under different circumstances.

Is this a class action lawsuit?

No. These are individual cases. Class action lawsuits often treat victims like one massive group, with minimal to small payout at the end. That is not the situation here – you would be represented as an individual.

Why didn’t the FDA warn us about these drugs?

The FDA helps test and regulate drugs, but they aren’t perfect. Not only do they have limited resources, but they rely on individuals in their employment, outside research, and data provided by the drug companies. In our previous dangerous drug cases, there’s often a breakdown somewhere in the system.

Why should I choose you to represent me?

Our Memphis dangerous drugs lawyers have a track record of success against some of the biggest companies in the world, including major brands like J&J Baby Powder, 3M earplugs, and Zofran.

We have an excellent reputation that’s earned us multiple Martindale-Hubbell awards for client satisfaction, a 5-star rating on Avvo, and an A+ from the Better Business Bureau for decades. And we don’t get paid a penny unless and until we win your case.
