Have You Been Injured Due to the Side Effects of Weight Loss Medications? We Can Help

The rise of medications that promise a solution for weight loss is becoming well-known nationwide. While these drugs may seem to work miracles, patients are expressing real concerns over the safety and potential side effects of them, causing lawmakers across the country to take action. If you or someone you know has suffered injuries as a result of being on medications like Ozempic®, Wegovy®, Trulicity, or other diabetes medications prescribed for weight loss, you may have a case.  

Understanding Weight Loss Drugs 

Many claims that have been emerging involve weight loss medications that were created to manage type 2 diabetes. These drugs typically work by mimicking a digestive hormone that reduces appetite. As a result, these diabetes medications have become widely popular among patients for their ability to help them lose weight.

Ozempic® is the brand name drug for semaglutide and is a prescription medication that is FDA approved to treat type 2 diabetes.  

What is Wegovy®?

Wegovy® is the brand name drug with the same active compound as Ozempic® that received FDA approval as a weight loss medication. This drug contains a higher dose of semaglutide than Ozempic®.  

What is Saxenda®?

Saxenda® is the brand name drug for liraglutide and is approved for chronic weight management.  

What is Rybelsus®?

Rybelsus® is a brand name drug for semaglutide that is prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes. It is used alongside diet and exercise to help patients manage blood sugar levels. 

What is Mounjaro®?

Mounjaro® is a brand name drug for tirzepatide and is an injectable medication used alongside diet and exercise to treat patients with type 2 diabetes. It helps manage blood sugar levels by mimicking digestive hormones in the body.  

What is Trulicity? 

Trulicity is a brand name drug for dulaglutide. This is an injectable medication that is FDA-approved to treat patients with type 2 diabetes. It is used alongside diet and exercise to control high blood sugar.
