Viberzi Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) that suffer from diarrhea and abdominal pain may have been prescribed eluxadoline under the brand name Viberzi. Unfortunately, this drug may cause health problems for those without a gall bladder or taking other medications. If you have taken Viberzi and suffered pancreatitis or other health issues, you may be eligible to seek compensation under a defective drug claim.

Viberzi can cause spasms that affect the sphincter attached to the pancreas. This can impact the release of bile from the pancreas to digest food. In those who have had a cholecystectomy (removal of the gall bladder), the release of bile can cause inflammation in the pancreas. This can lead to pancreatitis, which can damage the pancreas. Those with acute pancreatitis may have a variety of symptoms. The condition may lead to damage to the kidneys, lungs and heart. In severe cases, pancreatitis can cause death.

Drug Interactions with Viberzi

The FDA recommends that those who have had their gall bladder removed should not take Viberzi, as it can cause pancreatitis and death. In addition, there have been concerns that taking Viberzi with some other medications or conditions may have health risks, including:

  • Taking opioids
  • Drinking more than three alcoholic drinks per day
  • SLC01B1 inhibitors
  • Lotronex
  • Crestor
  • Bismuth sabsalinylate (used in Pepto-Bismol and some other products)

There are many different conditions where using Viberzi can cause pancreas issues. Symptoms of pancreatitis include back pain, nausea, abdominal pain, increased heart rate, vomiting, fever and weight loss. If you have been diagnosed with pancreatitis and have taken Viberzi, you may be eligible to seek compensation for injuries caused by this drug.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.9 / 5.0

Based on 19 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
