More and more Ozempic users are now coming forward with diagnosis of serious stomach symptoms and stomach paralysis which has been tied to use of the drug. According to CNN, “ Doctors say that more cases like these are coming to light as the popularity of the drugs soared. The US Food and Drug Administration said it has received reports of people on the drugs experiencing stomach paralysis that sometimes has not resolved by the time it’s reported.”
While the maker of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk, has thus far denied claims that the drug is unsafe, more and more victims continue to come forward and several have even filed lawsuits. It is now suspected that other similar drugs including Mounjaro, Rybelsus, Saxenda, and Wegovy may be causing similar effects.
If you or someone you love has been a user of Ozempic and have developed stomach paralysis or any other serious stomach condition, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

What is Ozempic?
Ozempic, also known as semaglutide, is a weekly injection that can help to lower blood sugar by causing the pancreas to provide a higher volume of insulin. While it hasn’t been approved for weight loss, some physicians prescribe it to help their patients lose weight.
Unfortunately, other drugs such as Mounjaro, Rybelsus, Saxenda, and Wegovy that operate similar to Ozempic are now being investigated for links to similar health hazards.

What are the Symptoms of Stomach Paralysis?
Stomach Paralysis, also known as gastroparesis, is when the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. This can lead to a variety of problems, such as the contents of the stomach solidifying and being unable to pass at all. While gastroparesis may affect individuals differently, the most common symptoms include:
- Stomach bloat
- Reduced appetite
- Loss of appetite
- Upper abdominal pain
- Nausea and vomiting
- Acid reflux
- Blood sugar fluctuation
If you’ve taken Ozempic and have begun experiencing any of the above symptoms, it is recommended that you contact your doctor as soon as you are able and advise them of your condition. If you have any questions about your legal rights, be sure to contact a lawyer who provides free consultations to discuss what options may be available to you.
I Used Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, Rybelsus, or Saxenda but Haven’t Suffered Stomach Paralysis. Should I be worried?
Unfortunately, being currently free of the symptoms of gastroparesis is no guarantee you are free from any adverse health effects. Speak with your doctor about your health and your concerns. If you experience any symptoms, look to your health care provider for advice on how to move forward.
