Semaglutide & Ozempic Linked to Stomach Paralysis

Ozempic contains semaglutide to help regulate blood sugar levels and increase the secretion of insulin, which can leave patients feeling full or satisfied. As a result, many patients use Ozempic and other semaglutide medications like Wegovy and Rybelsus for weight loss.

However, recent studies have shown that semaglutide drugs like Ozempic may increase the risk of stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), bowel obstruction, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), malnutrition-related disorders, and other health issues.

Ozempic may be more likely to cause health issues if you:

  • Take high doses of the medication
  • Are on the medication for a prolonged period
  • Use the medication for weight loss purposes

Because the warning labels on these medications may not have mentioned all of the side effects, anyone who's been impacted may be able to pursue compensation from an Ozempic lawsuit.

As a national personal injury law firm, Sokolove Law has helped thousands of clients hold the companies responsible for their injuries accountable. Let us put our decades of experience to work for you.

Is Ozempic approved for weight loss?

No. The FDA has not approved Ozempic for the sole purpose of weight loss at this time. This drug is currently approved to treat type-2 diabetes and reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems.

How does Ozempic work?

Ozempic mimics the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RAs) hormone in the body, which helps regulate blood sugar levels by increasing the secretion of insulin. This can also make users feel full.

In addition to Ozempic, semaglutide is also the active ingredient in Rybelsus tablets and Wegovy injections, which are also considered GLP-1 RAs.

However, semaglutide weight loss drugs like Ozempic may increase the risk of stomach paralysis and other health risks.
