Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro and Other GLP-1 Agonists Side Effects Canadian Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP is investigating a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Novo Nordisk Canada Inc. and Eli Lilly Canada Inc. in relation to their weight-loss and diabetes medications:

• Ozempic (semaglutide) [2018]
• Rybelsus (semaglutide) [2020]
• Wegovy (semaglutide) [2021]
• Mounjaro (tirzepatide) [2022]
• Trulicity (dulaglutide) [2022]
• Saxenda (liraglutide) [2015]
• Victoza (tirzepatide) [2010]

The proposed class action is based on allegations that these drugs have improperly disclosed or failed to warn about certain side effects such as:

- Gastroparesis / stomach paralysis
- Gastric statis
- Ileus
- Gastric obstruction
- Intestinal obstruction

These medical conditions often lead to hospitalization, surgery, and vomiting for extended lengths of time.

Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists are a class of medications that can help lower blood sugar levels and promote weight loss. GLP-1 agonist medications work by mimicking a naturally occurring GLP-1 hormone. In medical terms, an agonist is a manufactured substance that attaches to a cell receptor and causes the same action as the naturally occurring substance. One way in which these drugs work is by stimulating insulin production and reducing glucose production in the liver helping to lower blood sugar levels.

There have been several published studies since as least 2018 that expose the above risks associated with these medications:
