A warning about the risks of Tepezza-related hearing problems was finally added to the Tepezza drug label in July 2023. Some of the various hearing problems associated with Tepezza can cause hearing loss and can be permanent.
In more detail, in the current Tepezza Full Prescribing Information (Revised: July 2023) document, we point out this newly added subsection:
5.4 Hearing Impairment Including Hearing Loss
TEPEZZA may cause severe hearing impairment including hearing loss, which in some cases may be permanent. Assess patients’ hearing before, during, and after treatment with TEPEZZA and consider the benefit-risk of treatment with patients.
Cases of Tepezza-related hearing problems had been reported well before this July 2023 Tepezza drug label change, and one wondered when there would finally be warnings about Tepezza hearing loss side effects.
We are investigating cases of Tepezza-related hearing problems as possible Tepezza drug injury lawsuits. Those Tepezza lawsuits involve cases where the patient, while using Tepezza, started to experience “new” hearing problems, such as:
- Hearing loss, ranging from impairment to deafness
- Sound or noise sensitivity that makes it hard to deal with everyday sounds
- Ringing in the ears in the absence of an external source, also known as Tinnitus
- Unusually loud hearing of one’s own voice, breathing, and other bodily sounds
- Sensations of ears being “plugged” or “full” resulting in muffled hearing
If you or someone you know experienced Tepezza-related hearing problems, we encourage you to submit a Drug Injury Case Evaluation Form online — it is free, confidential, and there is no obligation.
We point out that these Tepezza drug injury lawsuits would be filed against the pharmaceutical companies which are responsible for Tepezza, not your doctors.[Read article in full at original source]
