WEIGHT LOSS DRUG CLAIMS
BREAKING NEWS ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS DRUGS
Roberts Wilson, P.A. Injury Lawyers are investigating weight loss drug injury claims for patients who took Ozempic, Wegovy, Rybelsus, or Mounjaro and were diagnosed with and treated for intraoperative pulmonary aspiration, ileus or bowel obstruction, pancreatic cancer, gallbladder removal, severe or permanent stomach paralysis, gastroparesis, and other gastrointestinal injuries. The client must have had received medical treatment for the injuries that did not immediately result in death, like suicide.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently reported receiving complaints indicating safety concerns for these drugs, including the risk of serious and life-threatening intestinal blockage. The question is whether or not the companies failed to warn of these potential problems that may be associated with use of these drugs.
Recent studies show drugs such as Wegovy, Ozempic and Mounjaro may increase the risk of potentially fatal intestinal blockages or obstructions, which often require major surgery. Intestinal blockage signs and symptoms may include:
• Abdominal cramps
• Difficulty passing gas
FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION
In addition to intestinal blockages, the Food & Drug Administration is also receiving reports of stomach paralysis, which is also known as gastropareses. Stomach paralysis or gastropareses prevents the stomach’s nerves and muscles from properly functioning and can leave food sitting too long in one’s intestines leading to serious health problems. Symptoms of gastroparesis may include:
• Feeling full quickly
• Upper abdominal pain
• Loss of appetite
