Tepezza Attorneys

Nationally Representing Those Who Have Suffered Side Effects from Tepezza

Have you or someone close to you experienced difficulty hearing since starting Tepezza infusions? Tepezza, also known as teprotumumab, is an injectable prescription drug used to treat thyroid eye disease. Also referred to as TED, thyroid eye disease is a rare autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation and swelling of the tissues around the eyes. Tepezza is the first and only FDA-approved medication for this condition. Thyroid eye disease most commonly occurs as part of Graves’ disease, which is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid and often the skin and eyes. Side effects listed on Tepezza’s website include:

  • Muscle cramping or spasms

  • Nausea

  • Hair loss

  • Feeling tired

  • Diarrhea

  • Fatigue

  • High blood sugar

  • Headaches

  • Dry skin

  • Weight loss

  • Changes in menstruation

  • Hearing problems

Although hearing problems are vaguely mentioned, the drug label fails to mention hearing loss and tinnitus, and that these symptoms may be permanent. According to the Lawsuit Information Center:

“A warning that does not meaningfully convey the risk is no warning at all” (Miller, 2023). At the Oliver Bell Group, we believe a patient suffering from one disorder should be clearly made aware of all potential risks before treatment is administered.

Are You Eligible for Compensation?

U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin in the Northern District of Illinois is currently in charge of coordinating common problems that apply to multiple claims under the Tepezza MDL. You may be eligible for compensation if taking Tepezza caused you to experience any of the following symptoms: sensorineural hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), difficulty hearing, an ear plugging sensation, muffled sounds, sound sensitivity, problems making out words in noisy environments, inner ear pains, dizziness, or difficulty balancing. If you have any of these symptoms ask yourself, when did you start using Tepezza? How many infusions or treatments have you received? What type of hearing problems have you experienced? Has a doctor diagnosed your hearing difficulties or vocalized that said difficulties may be related to Tepezza? Schedule a call with the Oliver Bell Group to determine your next steps and leave the details to us as you navigate this challenging time. 

Seek Justice Through Oliver Law Group

With over twenty-five years of legal experience, the Oliver Bell Group understands the pain and suffering caused by healthcare conglomerates such as Tepezza. A drug that attempts to cure the painful decline of one sense through the diminishment of another is no cure at all. Litigation is being pushed forward as the first Tepezza MDL conference began in early July. Don’t wait to seek justice, contact the Oliver Bell Group to get legal representation for the unjust damage caused and join the fight against Tepezza today.

Case Update

Tepezza has recently added “hearing impairment including hearing loss” and “severe hearing impairment hearing loss, cases may be permanent” to their warning label. Drug makers will usually avoid adding the exact warning in failure to warn cases until litigation has been resolved, as transparent warnings should have been included prior to injury.
