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.
