If you suffered an injury from the use of Tepezza, it is important for you to know that you will need to show proof in order to file a lawsuit. Simply saying that you have Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) or have taken a couple injections of Tepezza is not enough evidence to move forward in the legal process.
In this article, Kwartler Manus LLC will tell you about the Tepezza injections, the factors that our attorneys look for, and the evidence we need to show proof that you suffered an injury from using Tepezza.
All About Tepezza and the Dangers It Causes
Tepezza is a medication prescribed by doctors to treat a rare condition called Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). Individuals with this disease usually have irritating eye symptoms and are looking for a quick and effective treatment to help them. Therefore, at the beginning of 2020, the Food and Drug Administration approved Tepezza to help alleviate TED symptoms.
Tepezza helps individuals with TED by blocking antibodies that attack the muscles and tissues surrounding the eyes. Patients who choose this treatment receive a total of eight injections over a six-month period. Even though many patients had success after taking Tepezza injections, there are thousands of patients that claim this drug led to permanent hearing loss and other serious hearing issues.
Horizon Pharmaceuticals, the creator of Tepezza, alerted the public about some side effects it tested for and confirmed. These include headaches, hair loss, rectal bleeding, diarrhea, stomach cramps, high blood sugar, nausea, and more. While many patients did experience these side effects, they also experienced permanent hearing loss, temporary hearing loss, sound sensitivity, ringing of the ears, muffled sounds, voice amplifying, and eustachian tube dysfunction.
Patients choose Tepezza to relieve their symptoms of an eye condition. However, as a result, they experienced new hearing issues that they did not have before taking this medication. This is unfortunate and could have been 100 percent preventable if Horizon Pharmaceuticals had taken the time to do the proper testing and informed the public about the safety concerns associated with their product.
