Tepezza® (or teprotumumab) is a thyroid eye disease (TED) medication administered in multiple rounds of intravenous (IV) infusions. Unfortunately, the risk of hearing loss and related problems like tinnitus (ringing in the ears) may be much higher than past trials have indicated.
If you or a loved one were given Tepezza and suffered from hearing issues afterward, Simmons Hanly Conroy may be able to pursue compensation on your behalf from a Tepezza lawsuit.

Tepezza (teprotumumab) is a medication for thyroid eye disease (TED). TED is a relatively rare autoimmune disorder that affects the tissue around the eye, causing inflammation and affecting vision.
About 50% of people with Graves’ disease will develop TED, which is why it’s also known as Graves’ eye disease.
Symptoms of TED include:
To help alleviate these symptoms, Tepezza is administered to TED patients once every three weeks for a total of eight intravenous (IV) infusions.
Unfortunately, the risk of hearing problems associated with Tepezza may be much greater than previously believed, according to new studies.
In January 2020, Tepezza was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and remains the only drug approved for TED.
Two clinical trials were performed to ensure the drug’s safety before it received FDA approval. In both trials, only 10% of patients reported hearing-related side effects. This risk may actually be far greater, however.
New studies have found that as high as 65% of those treated with Tepezza experienced hearing loss or damage afterward.
Thousands across the country could be at risk of suffering hearing damage as a result of receiving Tepezza infusions.
Hearing side effects caused by Tepezza may include:

You only have a limited amount of time, known as statutes of limitations, to file a Tepezza lawsuit for hearing damage. This time frame varies from state to state.
Once the statute of limitations passes, however, you will not be able to file a Tepezza lawsuit or pursue compensation for your injuries.
