Potential Ozempic Lawsuits Related to Gallbladder Injuries
Ozempic is a prescription medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means that it works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1. This hormone helps regulate blood sugar levels. Ozempic is injected once weekly.
What are the Side Effects of Ozempic?
Ozempic has several side effects, some of which can be serious. The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and fatigue. Other side effects can include:
- Gallbladder problems
- Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
- Allergic reactions
If you experience any of these side effects, you should immediately talk to your doctor.
Here are some of the specific concerns that people who Ozempic has injured have raised:
- They were not adequately warned about the drug’s risks.
- They suffered serious side effects, including pancreatitis and gallbladder problems.
- They have had to pay for medical treatment for their injuries.
- They have lost wages due to their injuries.
- They have suffered pain and suffering.
In addition to these specific concerns, people who Ozempic has injured have also raised more general concerns about the drug, such as:
- The fact that Ozempic is a relatively new drug, and there is still not a lot known about its long-term safety.
- The fact that Ozempic is a very expensive drug, and many people injured by it have had to pay out of pocket for their medical treatment.
