The two main side effects of the Tepezza infusion treatment, which Horizon Pharmaceuticals failed to adequately warn about, are hearing loss (partial or permanent) and tinnitus (a ringing in the ear). Other hearing-related side effects are:
One or more of these otologic symptoms may develop after a single Tepezza infusion, but as different studies have shown, they occur after an average of three to four Tepezza infusions.
Permanent hearing loss affects not only the ability to work, maintain social relationships, drive a car, or enjoy an outing in nature, but it also involves substantial costs.
The manufacturer of Tepezza infusion treatment failed to adequately warn patients and doctors about the rate of hearing loss risks associated with the use of the drug. Horizon also failed to adequately warn about hearing loss issues being potentially irreversible. If you have received Tepezza infusion treatment for thyroid eye disease and have subsequently developed hearing loss or another impairing otologic symptom, you may be entitled to get compensation for your health damages.
