What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is semaglutide that has been prescribed to a specific patient and produced in a compounding facility certified by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Compounding pharmacies may only obtain ingredients from FDA-approved sources. Furthermore, compounded medications must be checked for purity, sterility, and potency.

Pharmaceutical compounding is lawful, but FDA pre-market approval is not necessary since such drugs are not manufactured in large enough quantities for general use. Rather, compounded drugs are created in response to specific requests from healthcare experts. As a result, these prescriptions may involve different delivery methods and dosages than name-brand pharmaceuticals.

About Semaglutide Injections

girl with laptop

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist. These medications replicate the GLP-1 hormone's appetite-suppressing and digestion-delaying effects.

Semaglutide, the primary component of Wegovy* and Ozempic*, was approved by the FDA following thorough testing for safety and efficacy. It also boasts a better success rate than other weight loss drugs.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is designed to be injected subcutaneously once per week. The medication's ability to retard gastric emptying and digestion generally enables users to consume fewer calories.

Semaglutide also affects the part of the brain responsible for cravings and hunger, empowering users to exercise better control over the size and frequency of their meals.

WEEKLY INJECTIONS

When paired with a balanced diet and regular exercise, semaglutide—the principal pharmacological element in Wegovy* and Ozempic*—facilitates weight loss. Compounded semaglutide is available by prescription through the Sanctuary Wellness Institute.

YOUR CLINICIAN WILL MAKE A TREATMENT DECISION BASED ON YOUR MEDICAL HISTORY AND OVERALL HEALTH AFTER THE COMPLETION OF A TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, physician-supervised approach to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It entails a personalized treatment plan that can include dietary changes, exercise, behavioral modification, and, if appropriate, prescription medications such as semaglutide.

Patients who receive this treatment not only lose weight, but also learn how to keep it off.

Many individuals who’ve undergone medical weight loss treatment have achieved great success. These programs employ time-tested approaches that go beyond simple diet and exercise to help patients lose weight.

Your online consultation will be similar to a traditional doctor's appointment. More precisely, the doctor will analyze your medical history, assess whether you’re a suitable candidate for semaglutide, and, if appropriate, help you set realistic weight loss objectives.

The cost of semaglutide injections can vary depending on several factors, including your location, dose, and insurance coverage. However, if you do not have insurance, you should expect to spend about $800 to $1,000 per month.

Certain Medicare programs and health insurance policies cover semaglutide injections, at least in part. Furthermore, Novo Nordisk offers a patient aid program for people facing financial challenges.

Semaglutide is prescribed via telemedicine by the Sanctuary Wellness Institute's weight loss clinic in Allentown, PA. We deliver these prescriptions directly to our patients' homes to allow for self-administration.

If you choose the Sanctuary, you’ll be able to procure your semaglutide prescription online. Our patients can make payments, plan and attend doctor’s appointments, and fill their semaglutide prescriptions from the convenience of their own homes.

When using semaglutide, each person loses weight at a different rate. However, according to research, weight loss normally occurs within the first few weeks of starting the treatment.

The time it takes people to lose weight on semaglutide can vary depending on their metabolic rates, levels of physical activity, and eating habits. However, research suggests that semaglutide users lose about five pounds per month.

Semaglutide users typically achieve the most significant weight loss within the first four to five months of their treatment, with that weight loss starting within a few weeks of their first injection. However, this timetable can fluctuate depending on a number of factors, including your starting weight, nutrition, exercise habits, and general health.

To maximize the efficiency of semaglutide, you’ll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and adhere to the guidance of your doctor.

Not all patients are good candidates for semaglutide. For example, those with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) should avoid using the medicine. Furthermore, individuals with a history of severe gastrointestinal diseases like pancreatitis should refrain from taking semaglutide since it can worsen such conditions.

Semaglutide has the potential to harm fetuses and newborns, so women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult their doctors before taking the medicine. Furthermore, anyone with allergies to semaglutide or any of its components should not use it.

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that works by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone to reduce hunger and slow digestion. It serves as the primary pharmacological component of Ozempic and Wegovy.

Semaglutide injections, like any other drug, can induce side effects. Some of the most prevalent ones include constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and stomach discomfort. These symptoms normally subside as your body adapts to the drug.

Before taking semaglutide, talk to your doctor. Also, be sure to notify them if you suffer from any severe or persistent side effects while on semaglutide.
