Semaglutide in Rybelsus & Stomach Paralysis

Manufactured by Danish company Novo Nordisk, Rybelsus is a semaglutide tablet used to help patients curb food cravings and lose weight.

Popular weight loss drugs like Rybelsus work by slowing digestion and making users feel full for longer periods. Over time, however, this has caused some to develop stomach paralysis, bowel obstructions, and other serious conditions.

Semaglutide drugs are more likely to be associated with gastroparesis (stomach paralysis) and other gastrointestinal issues compared to other weight loss drug options, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association.

For over 45 years, Sokolove Law has helped families affected by dangerous pharmaceuticals or defective medical devices get justice, securing more than $1.6 Billion nationwide.

You may be eligible to file a Rybelsus lawsuit if you or a loved one:

  • Used Rybelsus or another semaglutide weight loss drug like Ozempic or Wegovy
  • Suffered serious health issues like stomach paralysis

However, you only have a limited amount of time to file a Rybelsus side effect lawsuit due to state deadlines known as the statute of limitations.

Rybelsus Side Effects

When a prescription drug becomes available to the public, it should be safe for use. However, that’s not always the case.

Many weight loss drug users feel that there wasn’t enough warning about the side effects of popular semaglutide medications like Rybelsus.

Serious side effects of Rybelsus can include:

  • Stomach paralysis (gastroparesis)
  • Bowel or intestinal obstructions
  • Chronic vomiting
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Esophageal injury
  • Ileus (intestinal inability to contract and pass waste)
  • Intraoperative pulmonary aspiration
  • Malnutrition-related disorders
  • Pancreatic cancer

Medical expenses after an unexpected illness or injury can add up quickly, causing patients even more stress than their initial symptoms.

By filing a Rybelsus lawsuit, you can get help holding Novo Nordisk accountable and securing compensation for the side effects you experienced.

What is the lawsuit against semaglutide weight loss drugs?

Lawsuits against semaglutide weight loss drugs like Rybelsus claim manufacturers failed to notify patients about serious side effects that may occur when taking these medications, like stomach paralysis and chronic vomiting.

How does Rybelsus work?

Rybelsus mimics the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. This weight loss drug slows digestion, which may allow patients to feel full for longer.

This activation boosts insulin production, reduces glucagon secretion, and slows digestion, which may help a patient regulate their appetite.
