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.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
