If you’ve been prescribed Wegovy (semaglutide) in Kentucky for weight management or diabetes and have suffered adverse effects, it’s crucial to understand that you’re not navigating this situation alone. We have seen an increasing number of Kentucky residents report harmful consequences after taking Wegovy. Our skilled attorneys specializing in pharmaceutical liability are available to guide you should you contemplate initiating litigation specific to Wegovy usage in Kentucky. Contact us for an evaluation, and we will connect you with exceptional legal expertise tailored to your needs.

Wegovy, whose active ingredient is semaglutide, has received FDA approval primarily for the treatment of obesity. It functions by mimicking a hormone that affects certain areas of the brain related to hunger. Classified as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, Wegovy is also prescribed for diabetes treatment.

Semaglutide-based medications like Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus, Trulicity, Mounjaro, and Saxenda are gaining attention not only for diabetes treatment but also as innovative weight loss solutions. However, all medications come with inherent risks, and we are witnessing a rise in adverse event reports and legal actions, including within Kentucky.


Novo Nordisk, headquartered in Denmark, is the entity behind Wegovy. Kentuckians who have suffered negative consequences from Wegovy use should consider pursuing legal action against Novo Nordisk. The legal avenues might include a product liability claim based on various allegations such as negligence, insufficient disclosure of risks, manufacturing defects, or other relevant grounds under Kentucky law. If you or a family member has experienced severe repercussions following Wegovy use, legal action against the pharmaceutical company may be warranted.

While you might be contemplating joining a Wegovy-related class action, remember that pursuing an individual lawsuit could offer more advantages, especially when severe health concerns are at stake. An individual lawsuit might lead to a faster resolution and potentially a much larger settlement under Kentucky law.


Should you experience ongoing digestive issues like nausea, bloating, or abdominal discomfort while taking Wegovy, consult your healthcare provider immediately concerning possible gastroparesis or delayed gastric emptying. The FDA has documented various serious health concerns associated with Wegovy:

  • Gastroparesis: A condition that impairs the stomach’s ability to properly process food.
  • Pancreatitis: Inflammation of the pancreas requiring immediate medical attention, symptoms include severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Gallbladder Issues: Increased risk of gallstones or gallbladder inflammation with symptoms like acute abdominal pain, fever, and skin discoloration.
  • Kidney Complications: Indications of potential kidney malfunction may include nausea and reduced appetite.
  • Hypoglycemia: Especially risky for diabetics on other glucose-lowering medications, leading to dangerously low blood sugar levels.
  • Allergic Reactions: Severe allergic responses may occur, with symptoms including skin rashes, swelling, or breathing difficulties.
  • Thyroid Tumors: Increased risk of thyroid C-cell tumors, including medullary thyroid carcinoma.
  • Worsening Diabetic Retinopathy: Existing eye conditions related to diabetes may be exacerbated.
  • Visual Disturbances: Changes in vision, particularly for those previously diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy.
