Ozempic, Mounjaro Manufacturers Sued for Serious Side Effects, Including “Stomach Paralysis”

Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly and Co. are facing legal action over serious side effects linked to the popular weight loss aids Ozempic and Mounjaro.

About the Ozempic and Mounjaro Lawsuits

Originally marketed for the treatment of diabetes, Ozempic and Mounjaro have grown in popularity for use as weight loss aids. However, a lawsuit suggests the drugs can cause severe adverse effects, including gastroparesis (commonly referred to as “stomach paralysis”).

The case cited in the lawsuit involves a 44-year-old woman from Louisiana. The woman first took Ozempic then Mounjaro at the discretion of her doctor.

According to the lawsuit, the woman has suffered multiple side effects, some so severe that they required multiple trips to the emergency room. While the lawsuit states the woman has not officially been diagnosed with gastroparesis, it does note related symptoms including severe vomiting to the point that the woman has lost teeth.

The lawsuit states that both Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly and Co. failed to warn consumers about the potential adverse outcomes. The firm handling the suit added it is investigating 400 similar inquiries from at least 45 separate states.

What is Gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is a health disorder that slows or stops the movement of food from your stomach to your small intestine. The disorder occurs when there is no blockage in the stomach or intestine. Instead, the slowing or stoppage is caused by changes in the normal spontaneous movement of the muscles in your stomach.

As a result, affected individuals may experience:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Acid reflux
  • Weight loss
  • Malnutrition
