Wegovy, with semaglutide as its main ingredient, has received FDA endorsement and is majorly used to address obesity. It acts by replicating a hormone that modulates appetite in the brain. Being part of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists family, it’s also advocated for diabetes management.

Semaglutide’s role in weight control has garnered significant attention. Brands, including Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus, Trulicity, Mounjaro, and Saxenda, originally crafted for diabetics, are now being hailed as innovative weight loss solutions. While their primary focus is individuals contending with obesity, an expanding segment of non-obese users are turning to them as weight loss aids. It’s imperative, however, to realize that every medication comes with its own set of risks. Adverse incident reports linked to Wegovy are on the rise, and Missouri is no exception.


Novo Nordisk, based in Denmark, is the company behind Wegovy. For Missourians who’ve encountered harmful consequences after its use, considering legal action against Novo Nordisk might be the logical next step. Potential legal approaches could encompass product liability claims, based on factors such as negligence, lack of adequate risk communication, manufacturing defects, or other relevant legal bases in line with Missouri’s judicial system. If you or someone you know has experienced adverse effects from Wegovy, considering legal proceedings against its manufacturer is a prudent step.

Joining a Wegovy class action might appeal to some. However, more often than not, for severe health impacts, opting for an individual lawsuit seems to be the more strategic decision within the confines of Missouri’s legal parameters. This approach may lead to more expedient resolutions and potentially heftier compensations.


If you’re on Wegovy and consistently face gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, bloating, or abdominal pain, seeking a medical opinion regarding potential gastroparesis or delayed gastric emptying is vital. The FDA has spotlighted several severe health concerns. Here’s an overview of the most critical potential side effects tied to Wegovy (semaglutide):

  • Gastroparesis: Sometimes referred to as “stomach paralysis,” this condition affects the stomach’s ability to process food.
  • Pancreatitis: Denotes inflammation of the pancreas, requiring immediate medical care. Symptoms range from sharp abdominal pain to vomiting.
  • Gallbladder Complications: Those taking Wegovy might see a heightened risk of gallstones or gallbladder inflammation, evident through symptoms like intense abdominal discomfort or skin discoloration.
  • Renal Issues: Initial studies hint at a potential correlation between semaglutide and kidney problems. Notable signs range from a loss of appetite to a decline in kidney function.
  • Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar): Diabetic patients on certain meds could observe that Wegovy drastically lowers blood sugar levels, leading to symptoms like confusion or a fast heartbeat.
  • Allergic Responses: Some users may show strong allergic reactions to semaglutide, with signs such as skin rashes, swelling, or respiratory difficulties.
  • Thyroid Tumors: Given its classification, Wegovy has raised eyebrows for its connection to a raised risk of thyroid C-cell tumors, conditions such as medullary thyroid carcinoma included.
  • Exacerbation of Diabetic Retinopathy: Consumption of Wegovy could amplify pre-existing diabetic eye ailments.
  • Visual Disturbances: Including changes in vision or other ocular issues.
