Ozempic, a Bitter Pill to Swallow. Knowledgeable folks and users of Ozempic will know right off the bat that Ozempic is a weekly injection and not a pill. So why the title, “Ozempic, a Bitter Pill to Swallow?” because there is no equivalent in modern parlance for the idiom that refers to a bitter injection.

But this is a play on words because a bitter pill to swallow is an expression from the 1600s that refers to something unpleasant or hurtful that is hard to accept. A bitter pill to swallow is the naked truth that people do not want to face but one that cannot be avoided.

Like a pill, it must be swallowed, these unpleasant facts must be taken in. And Ozempic is indeed a bitter pill to swallow, as will be explained later, this idiom is not meant to be taken literally and in fact, its use is both unpleasant and hurtful because of the profound side effects.

Personal Injury – The Importance of Acting Fast in Texas. In the state of Texas, personal injury cases fall under the category of “civil” cases, and therefore have a two-year statute of limitations. This means that a lawsuit can only be filed within two years of the date of the incident that caused the injury. In many cases, some injuries become apparent very quickly; broken bones and lacerations are easy to identify and are fairly straightforward to treat with the correct medical care, however, “unseen” injuries can be much harder to detect which increases the probability of suffering from long-lasting complications.
