Side-Effects of Taking Ozempic

Side-Effects of Taking Ozempic

Ozempic is a weekly drug injection developed for the treatment of patients with Type 2 diabetes. While initially designed to release a hormone that slows down digestion and retains food in a patient’s stomach for diabetes management, Ozempic has gained traction for its effect on weight loss, due to the drug’s ability to suppress hunger.

Unfortunately, there are side effects associated with Ozempic. At Jan Dils, Attorney at Law, we believe you need to be aware of these side effects to speak with a product liability attorney if you sustained serious harm to determine if you have a potential claim.

The Potential Side Effects of Ozempic

One potential side effect of Ozempic is the potential development of gastroparesis, or paralysis of the stomach. Gastroparesis is caused by delayed gastric emptying which can disrupt the normal movement of food from the stomach to the small intestine. Gastroparesis has the potential to adversely affect a patient’s blood sugar levels and nutritional well-being. Symptoms include indigestion, a bloated stomach, upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, regurgitation of undigested food, loss of appetite, acid reflux, heartburn, and blood sugar fluctuations.

In addition, some complications that can arise from gastroparesis include dehydration from repeated vomiting, malnutrition stemming from poor nutrition absorption, and difficulty controlling blood sugar levels, overall contributing to a decreased quality of life.

Gastroparesis due to Ozempic can also cause bezoars which are solid masses of food in the stomach. This prevents digestion and increases the risk of blockage, ulcers, and bleeding. If a bezoar keeps food from moving to the small intestine, gastroparesis can be life-threatening.
