Horizon Therapeutics (Horizon) makes a drug called Tepezza (teprotumumab-trbw). It is a relatively new drug approved by the FDA to treat the symptoms of Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). These symptoms include bulging of the eyes, swelling, eye pain, double vision and redness of the eyes. TED is a rare medical condition involving inflammation of the tissue around the eyes.
When made available in early 2020, Tepezza was the first FDA-approved drug to treat TED. Despite being approved by the FDA, many patients who have received this medicine have reported various side effects. One of the more notable is that many patients have started complaining about hearing problems.
