Too good to be true

It sounds too good to be true: The “miracle” weight loss drugs taking Hollywood, social media, and the country by storm promise to help you lose weight and keep the weight off. You’re right – it IS too good to be true. Ozempic, along with other semaglutide or liraglutide medications like Wegovy, Rybelsus, Trulicity, Mounjaro, Zepbound, and Saxenda, are increasingly linked with reports of severe gastric side effects like uncontrolled vomiting and diarrhea (gastroenteritis), poor nutrient absorption, malnutrition, major nausea, unbearable stomach cramps, and, in the more serious cases, stomach paralysis (gastroparesis).

Reports in the media have brought light to the severity of these side effects, and a recent scientific study warned of increased risk of adverse gastrointestinal events in patients taking these medications for weight loss. And yet, the manufacturers have rejected accusations about the drugs’ safety, even as more sufferers come forward.

The harsh realities of semaglutide use

While the manufacturers of these drugs continue to insist that they are safe, more patients have voiced serious repercussions on their health. Before taking these medications, patients should know that there are reports of many health issues linked to taking Ozempic, and other similar medications:

  • Stomach paralysis (gastroparesis)* and other serious stomach or intestinal symptoms
  • Ileus* (inability for intestine to contract, potentially leading to blockages)
  • Acute kidney injury
  • Gallbladder inflammation or gallstones
  • Liver or kidney failure
  • Pancreatitis
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Vision loss or retinopathy
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Suicidal thoughts or self-harm

*These conditions are not listed on Ozempic warning labels

The labeling of these medications includes many side effects, but does not include some of the more serious potential side effects that are being reported, such as gastroparesis. In September 2023, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) added ileus as an additional serious side effect to Ozempic’s labeling, since enough reports had been submitted to warrant the change.

Semaglutide – Ozempic – Frequently asked questions

What are semaglutide and liraglutide?

Semaglutide is the generic name for a group of medications that are glucagon-like peptide-1 agonists, or GLP-1 agonists. Liraglutide is also a GLP-1 agonist, but has different active ingredients and different frequencies of dosage. Originally prescribed for type 2 diabetics to help control blood sugar, GLP-1 agonists work by increasing insulin resistance, which lowers the amount of glucagon released. Recently, additional uses for weight loss have been marketed by drug companies, since these drugs delay stomach or gastric emptying and reduce appetite.

What are the different medications?

  • Ozempic is an injectable prescription medication manufactured by Novo Nordisk and is used to treat type 2 diabetes.
  • Wegovy is also manufactured by Novo Nordisk and is also an injectable, but is the name used to market the semaglutide drug as a weight loss medication, as it contains a much higher dose of semaglutide.
  • Saxenda is a daily injectable liraglutide GLP-1 medication made by Novo Nordisk.
  • Rybelsus is an oral medication manufactured by Novo Nordisk and works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1
  • Trulicity is manufactured by Eli Lilly and is an injectable GLP-1 medication used to treat type 2 diabetes by helping to control blood sugar levels.
  • Mounjaro is manufactured by Eli Lilly and is used to help manage type 2 diabetes, but targets a hormone in addition to GLP-1 to reduce blood sugar levels. This drug is called tirzepatide.
  • Zepbound is manufactured by Eli Lilly and is the weight loss version of Mounjaro, a tirzepatide. It received FDA approval on November 8, 2023. It is intended to compete with Wegovy

Is there a cure for gastroparesis?

According to the Mayo Clinic, there is no cure for stomach paralysis, known as gastroparesis, but treatment can reduce or manage symptoms. Many complications can arise from gastroparesis, including dehydration, malnutrition, acid reflux, bloating, constipation, and low energy or fatigue. It is critical to seek medical care for any severe symptoms.
