Understanding the New FDA Warning

The FDA recently updated the warning label for Ozempic. It now includes a message about patients having a greater chance of developing intestinal blockages.  

An intestinal blockage – also known as ileus – is a serious condition requiring immediate attention. 

This new change is particularly significant for individuals with a history of gastrointestinal issues because they may be more likely to be diagnosed with ileus.

Some of the most common warning signs to watch for include:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation

Have you experienced any of these problems while using Ozempic? If so, you should contact your doctor immediately. You may also need help from a legal professional.

Impact on Ozempic Users

The new FDA warning raises valid concerns among current and prospective Ozempic users. 

If you’re worried about your health, you should discuss your medical history with a healthcare provider before taking this drug. This conversation is especially critical if you have had previous gastrointestinal issues. Ultimately, it is your provider’s responsibility to evaluate your candidacy.

Being informed and vigilant about the symptoms of ileus can also help you know when to seek a professional’s advice. You may have legal options if you notice ill effects from the medicine.
