GLP-1 medications have become a popular medication for treating type 2 diabetes and aiding in weight loss. However, recent studies and reports have linked Ozempic and other GLP-1 medications to serious gastrointestinal side effects like gastroparesis, intestinal blockages, and ileus.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with gastroparesis, an intestinal blockage, bowel obstruction, or an ileus/intestinal pseudo-blockage after taking Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, Zepbound, Trulicity, Saxenda, Rybelsus, or Victoza, you may be eligible to file a legal claim against the drug manufacturers, Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly. Cory Watson’s experienced product liability attorneys can help. To contact an attorney, call 877-562-0000 or fill out our 100% free case evaluation form.
Our law firm is dedicated to helping victims of weight loss drug-related gastroparesis obtain the justice and compensation they deserve. We have extensive experience in holding pharmaceutical companies accountable for their negligence and believe that Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly failed to adequately warn consumers about the potential risks of gastroparesis associated with GLP-1 medications.

Gastroparesis is a debilitating condition, often referred to simply as stomach paralysis, that causes delayed stomach emptying and other symptoms such as:
- Severe nausea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain and bloating
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Difficulty eating and absorbing nutrients
An ileus is very similar to gastroparesis but for the small intestines rather than the stomach. It is simply when the muscles of the small intestine do not act normally to move food through to the large intestine.
An intestinal pseudo-obstruction is when a patient appears to have a blockage of the large or small intestine, but in reality, the patient’s intestinal muscles are not working properly to move food, similar to what was just described for an ileus. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally acted in September 2023 to require Novo Nordisk to include information on ileus in Ozempic’s warning label, but as of December 2023, there is still no mention made of these severe gastrointestinal risks in the label highlights on the first page.
Do I have a Potential GLP-1/Weight Loss Medication Case?
You may have a case if you:
- Are 75 years old or younger;
- Received a diagnosis of gastroparesis, stomach paralysis, gastric obstruction, ileus, or intestinal pseudo-obstruction while taking these drugs or within 30 days of stopping use; and
- Required an emergency room visit or hospital admission.
- Are no longer taking the medication
