During the last three months of 2022 alone, health care providers in the United States wrote over nine million prescriptions for Ozempic and similar drugs. The meteoric rise in popularity can be attributed to the fact that the drugs’ active ingredient, semaglutide, is a 'GLP-1 receptor agonist,’ and causes a side effect of weight loss for some patients. However, many patients are reporting having gastrointestinal issues after using Ozempic, resulting in possible liability for Novo Nordisk, the makers of Ozempic.

How does Ozempic increase risks of gallbladder and gastrointestinal issues?
Ozempic contains an active ingredient known as semaglutide, which stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin. While this causes a desired result of managing diabetes and possibly weight loss, it also may push a patient over the edge into experiencing undesired conditions like pancreatitis, gallbladder issues or “stomach paralysis.”
Patients are taking action against Novo Nordisk
Those who consistently took Ozempic for a sustained period of time, are believed to be at an increased risk for many kinds of gallbladder and gastrointestinal issues, including:
- Gastroparesis (paralysis of the stomach)
- Stomach paralysis
- Bowel obstruction
- Blocked intestine
- Pulmonary aspiration during surgery

Michael Mainetti worked hard to get my case settled. Medicare kept giving us trouble and he continued to back me up and get my settlement and concluded all matters with Medicare. Definitely would recommend him to anyone needing help in a personal injury case!
Michael was a pleasure to work with, handled everything in an effective, professional manner
Michael Mainetti changed my life after I was struck by a bus. I called to get a consultation, and he personally called me back in 15 minutes to hear my case. He made sure I had everything I needed not just to fight for my lawsuit, but all aspects I needed for my medical treatment and recovery. Outstanding professionalism and communication is what you will receive when you need the help of Mainetti and Mainetti.
Michael did an amazing job throughout the entire process. He made sure everything was as easy as possible for me. Not once did I second-guess my decision to have his firm handle my case. One thing that really stood out was that although I hired Michael as my attorney, I had the entire firm behind me, as well. Every time I was in the office, both Alfred and Alex asked about the case. They asked how everything was going, how I felt about the process, whether or not I was comfortable with it all, and encouraged my input, also. It shows that they all genuinely care about their clients and the outcome. Thank you all once again!

Who is liable for cancers caused by Ozempic?
As more patients report severe side effects, the responsibility of the drug manufacturer, Novo Nordisk is being scrutinized. If you have suffered from these side effects, our law firm can assist in evaluating your case and determining the appropriate legal action.
How can you claim damages caused by taking Ozempic?
Your legal options depend on the specific damages you've suffered. If you have been a user of these drugs and have been diagnosed with gallbladder issues, intestinal blockage, or stomach paralysis, you might be eligible to file an individual personal injury lawsuit.
Key elements for a successful lawsuit include:
- Proof of usage (pharmacy records, medical charts, etc.)
- Proof of injury (medical records and diagnoses)
- A strong correlation between the drug usage and the health issue.
