Latest Updates on the Ozempic Gallstone Lawsuit Revealed by Lawsuit Legal News
Aug 14, 2023
New Orleans, LA – Ozempic, a medicine often used to treat diabetes, has been linked to causing gallstones in patients. In recent months, patients have come forward saying they developed gallstones after taking Ozempic. The company that makes the drug, Novo Nordisk, is being accused of failing to provide an accurate warning label for its product. As a result, Ozempic users are now pursuing product liability claims against the makers of Ozempic to recover compensation for financial damages including medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. While gallstones may not seem like a big deal to some, if they aren’t treated, they can cause serious health problems.
People with Type II Diabetes often rely on medication to help manage their condition, in addition to maintaining their diet and establishing an exercise routine. Ozempic, an injectable medication that is also sold under the names Wegovy and Rybelsus, has been marketed to Type II diabetics as a way to help reduce their blood sugar levels.
Because one of its side effects helps people lose weight, Ozempic—the brand name for the chemical compound Semaglutide—has also been used by some to achieve weight loss. Unfortunately, new reports reveal some Ozempic users are experiencing severe gallbladder issues after receiving the drug. Many of these users have filed Ozempic lawsuits to recover their losses.
You may be eligible to bring an Ozempic lawsuit if you meet certain conditions. Specifically, you must have:
Used Ozempic prior to April 2022
Suffered gallbladder injuries, such as gallstones
Sustained financial damages as a result of your gallbladder injuries
