What Is Ozempic gallbladder removal Class Action Settlement?
An August 2022 review of FDA reporting data revealed that Ozempic and other drugs in the same class were linked to an increased incidence of gallbladder disease. Many of the patients in the reviewed cases were forced to undergo surgery to have their gallbladder removed due to Ozempic gallbladder problems. Unfortunately, a few patients died.
Consumers who took Ozempic and later developed gallbladder problems may be able to take legal action. An Ozempic gallbladder lawsuit could help patients and their families recover compensation for medical expenses, hospitalization, lost wages, wrongful death and other damages.
What Is This Class Action All About?
Ozempic (semaglutide) is a type-2 diabetes medication that is injected once a week to lower blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems. Ozempic has recently gained popularity as a weight loss drug, although this use hasn’t been approved by the FDA.
According to a review of the FDA’s reporting system, 36 patients developed acute gallbladder disease between 2005 and 2016 while taking drugs like Ozempic. 42% of the cases involved disease onset within 90 days of starting treatment with the drug. The majority of cases were treated with gallbladder removal but, unfortunately, three acute gallbladder disease cases resulted in death.
Although a warning label was added to Ozempic for gallbladder problems in March 2022, consumers who took Ozempic before this and developed cholecystitis were not sufficiently warned of the potential side effects.
Ozempic gallbladder problems can cause significant problems for consumers, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Wrongful death, etc.
