Were you prescribed Tepezza to treat thyroid eye disease (TED) and suffered hearing loss or tinnitus?
People who have suffered tinnitus, muffled hearing or hearing loss after taking Tepezza have filed lawsuits against Horizon Pharmaceuticals, the maker of the drug. The lawsuits claim that Horizon Pharmaceuticals failed to adequately research and warn patients of the risk of irreversible hearing loss, tinnitus, and other hearing-related problems associated with the use of Tepezza.
As early as 2021, alarming research findings pointed to a link between Tepezza and hearing problems. Data shared by the Endocrine Society showed 65% of patients who took Tepezza experienced hearing impairment ranging from muffled hearing or tinnitus to hearing loss.
In 2022, the American Journal of Ophthalmology published research findings that 81% of patients in a different study who received Tepezza injections reported some form of hearing dysfunction including hearing loss and ringing of the ears, also known as tinnitus. For a few patients, the hearing loss was irreversible.
