What are Complications of Ozempic?

Ozempic (semaglutide) is an injectable drug used to treat type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar, helping the pancreas make more insulin, which decreases the amount of sugar your liver makes and slows the rate food passes through your body. Ozempic is from a class of medicines called a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists (incretin mimetics) that works by binding to GLP-1 receptors which results in lower blood sugar levels and A1C levels and may also suppress appetite, which helps in weight loss.

There are currently three types of FDA-approved semaglytide drugs, including Ozempic. They are:

  • Wegovy injections are used for weight loss in adults or teenagers who are obese, and adults who are overweight and also have weight-related medical problems
  • Rybelsus tablets which are used to lower blood sugar levels for type 2 diabetic patients

We are also investigating Mounjaro (tirzepatide) which is a medication used the treat type 2 diabetes and for weight loss, and was approved by the FDA in 2022, which has many of the same side effects as Ozempic. Eli Lilly, the maker of Mounjaro, is an American pharmaceutical company headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and was founded in 1876. Eli Lilly is most known for Prozac and Cymbalta.

Has Ozempic Been Recalled?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has yet to issue a recall for Ozempic despite the fact that the drug has been linked to dangerous side effects. Ozempic is still being prescribed to thousands of patients to help control their type 2 diabetes. Recently, drugmaker Noro Nordisk updated the warning label to include potentially blocked intestines as a side effect.

Noro Nordick is a Danish pharmaceutical company established in 1923 in Bagsværd, Denmark. Their main focus has been establishing the World Diabetes Foundation to support a United Nations resolution to fight diabetes
