Is Novo Nordisk Liable for Ozempic Injuries?

To date, thousands of complaints have been collected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and law firms across the country about Ozempic causing unexpected stomach and gastrointestinal complications. It appears the most common and serious complication is gastroparesis.

Novo Nordisk could be found liable for the harm and losses suffered by you and other Ozempic users for two main reasons:

  • Strict product liability: Generally, product liability laws, which also cover medical products like prescription drugs, allow product makers and drugmakers to be held liable for any harm caused by their products.
  • Misleading information: Investigations have revealed that Novo Nordisk knew or reasonably should have known that Ozempic could cause serious stomach issues yet the drugmaker never disclosed that information to doctors, patients, and the public.

What is Gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is among the most common and serious side effects linked to Ozempic use. This serious stomach condition causes the stomach muscles to stop working properly, similar to being paralyzed, so the stomach cannot empty as usual. The slowed or halted digestion process can result in many different side effects and additional complications, some of which can be life-threatening.

Common symptoms of gastroparesis include:

  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty eating or keeping food down
  • Constipation
  • Bloated stomach
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unsafe blood sugar levels
  • Chronic heartburn

One of the most dangerous symptoms of gastroparesis is gastrointestinal blockage. The slowed digestion process can cause the formation of bezoars (undigested food) that block the stomach, intestines, or bowels. Severe blockages can cause life-threatening complications and often require emergency surgery to correct.
