What should I do if I suspect that my gastroparesis is linked to semaglutide use?

If you suspect your gastroparesis is caused by semaglutide, make an appointment with your healthcare provider as soon as possible. Only a medical specialist can accurately diagnose you with gastroparesis. A proper diagnosis will also be the first step in claiming compensation from the manufacturer. After your diagnosis, we urge you to contact our experienced lawyers to explore your options.

Gastroparesis may be an unintended side effect of semaglutide

Gastroparesis, or stomach paralysis, is a chronic condition in which the stomach nerves and muscles weaken, causing food to rot inside instead of moving towards the small intestine. Though it isn't life-threatening, it’s an extremely serious and painful condition that currently has no cure.

Scientists are unsure of how semaglutide is linked to gastroparesis, but many more people are coming forward with their claims. Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of the brand names Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus, failed to disclose this unintended—but dangerous—side effect.

If you, or anyone you know, experienced these symptoms after taking semaglutide:

  • severe nausea
  • intense vomiting
  • abdominal pain
  • abdominal bloating
  • extreme dehydration

Then please seek medical attention right away. Only a gastroenterologist can diagnose you properly with gastroparesis and help you find relief for your symptoms.
