How much will the Ozempic settlement payout be for one person?

We cannot give you an exact figure, because the amount of the payout depends on the specifics of your case. The value of your claim depends on the severity of your side effects and how long you’ve been taking Ozempic, but it can range anywhere from $400,000 to $700,000 per person.

Your compensation depends on various factors but can go as high as $700K

Novo Nordisk is coming under fire for the unintended side effects of semaglutide, the active ingredient in the brand names of Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus. Ozempic has been FDA-approved since 2017 and is prescribed for type II diabetics to help them lower their blood sugar. It is also heavily marketed as a weight loss aid with off-label use.

Despite the growing popularity of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk failed to disclose the severe potential side effects of taking the drug: gastroparesis, or stomach paralysis, and serious intestinal obstructions. Intestinal blockages were only added as a warning to the label in late 2023, while gastroparesis is still not included as a possible side effect of the drug.

If you are experiencing any serious side effects such as gastroparesis or bowel obstructions that resulted in your hospitalization due to the use of Ozempic, contact your doctor and get a proper diagnosis as soon as possible. This will be the starting point of your claim against Novo Nordisk.

The diagnosis should detail the severity of your condition. It is important to note the exact date when you started taking the drug as well. These factors will affect the value of the compensation you may receive.
