What is Tepezza?

Tepezza was a prescription drug created by Horizon Therapeutics to treat those with Graves’ eye disease and those with thyroid eye disease. Graves eye disease occurs when there is inflammation near the eye and causes the eye to swell. This can become dangerous and impact your vision. Tepezza was a medication that specifically targeted inflammation and was used to treat symptoms of Graves’ eye disease. The medication was approved by the  Food and Drug Administration around 2020. There were no other Graves eye disease prescription medications on the market at the time.

How is Tepezza taken?

It is an injection that takes place and is administered every three weeks for around 6 months.

Why is Tepezza dangerous?

Several lawsuits have now been filed against the product manufacturer of Tepezza by those who have suffered hearing loss by taking the medication. The basis for this lawsuit is the failure to warn on behalf of the pharmaceutical company. Horizon Therapeutics failed to warn users of the dangers of taking the medication and the potential risk of hearing loss. Some suffered temporary hearing loss, while others suffered permanent hearing loss.

The different types of side effects that Tepezza may have include:

  • Tinnitus
  • Permanent loss of hearing
  • Hearing echoes
  • Hearing your voice too loud
  • Temporary loss of hearing
  • Partial loss of hearing
  • Sensitivity to sounds
