Can I still file an Ozempic claim if the FDA approved the drug?

Yes. Despite FDA approval, you may still be eligible to file a claim against the manufacturer of Ozempic, but this depends on the specifics of your individual case. Patients who started taking Ozempic after the label update in September 2023 may no longer be eligible. Contact our firm for more information.

Novo Nordisk can be held liable for your semaglutide injuries

Ozempic was approved by the FDA in 2017. Semaglutide is solely manufactured by Novo Nordisk and is prescribed for those dealing with type II diabetes. Recently, it has also been strongly marketed as a weight loss aid. Some common side effects of semaglutide use include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Gas

However, it can cause more serious effects like gastroparesis and severe bowel obstructions that can lead to death, or at least the loss of quality of life. Novo Nordisk failed to disclose these very serious and life-altering side effects.

Despite the strengthening link between semaglutide use and these severe conditions, it was only in September 2023 that Novo Nordisk added this information to their prescription information. Depending on when you were prescribed the drug, you may have a case against Novo Nordisk.
