There is little known about the long-term side effects of using drugs like Ozempic and Mounjaro for weight loss purposes due to the fact that this is a relatively new use of the products. In fact, Dr. Meera Shahn, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic, noted that at least 10% of patients who have used these types of drugs stop taking them because common side effects such as nausea, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain persisted and did not improve over time, according to CBS News.
