Ozempic / Mounjaro / Wegovy

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic, Mounjaro and Wegovy are medications which contain the active ingredient semaglutide. Primarily prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes in adults and reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems, Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Wegovy have recently been widely prescribed to help with weight loss. These drugs mimic the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (“GLP-1 RAs") hormone in the body, which increases insulin secretion and helps regulate blood sugar levels.

Recent studies have shown that semaglutide medications such as these may increase the risk of gastroparesis, also known as stomach paralysis.  Gastroparesis is a condition affecting the stomach muscles that slows or stops the movement of food from your stomach to your small intestine. Normally, a person’s stomach empties within two to four hours after a meal.  In patients taking Ozempic, Mounjaro, or Wegovy, it can take ten to eighteen hours for the stomach to empty.

What are the risks?

Ozempic-induced gastroparesis may lead to poor absorption of nutrients, which can cause malnutrition, dehydration, and difficulty maintaining blood sugar levels. Patients may experience:

  • Gastroparesis (stomach paralysis)
  • Gastrointestinal pain
  • Bezoars
  • Vomiting
  • Dental issues caused by repeated vomiting.

The warning labels on these medications fail to mention these potential side effects, exposing all users to unnecessary risk.
