What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is a patient-specific drug manufactured in a state Board of Pharmacy or FDA-licensed compounding facility in response to a prescription from a licensed healthcare professional. Compounded drugs must use ingredients sourced from FDA-approved facilities and must be tested for potency, sterility, and purity.

While compounded drugs are legal, they do not require pre-market approval from the FDA because they are not produced in large quantities for the general public. Rather, they're produced in response to specific orders from healthcare providers. As a result, these medications' dosages and routes of administration may differ from those of commercial drugs.

About Semaglutide Injections


Semaglutide belongs to a family of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. These drugs simulate the effects of the GLP-1 hormone to mitigate appetite and slow digestion.

Semaglutide, used in Wegovy* and Ozempic* is FDA-approved. It has undergone strict clinical trials to confirm its safety and effectiveness. Newer medications lack the established track record of semaglutide, and providers have less experience using them to help their patients lose weight.

Semaglutide is viable for long-term use for patients who wish to lose excess weight. Maintaining healthy weight can drastically improve your overall health and well-being and reduce your risk of chronic health conditions like heart disease and type-2 diabetes.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is self-administered through a weekly subcutaneous injection. Semaglutide works as an appetite suppressant by mimicking existing hormones that interact with your digestive system and regulate food intake by reducing feelings of hunger.

Semaglutide also helps patients reduce their caloric intake by slowing digestion and delaying gastric emptying. When food moves through your stomach more slowly, you stay fuller for longer and don’t have as much of an appetite.

Semaglutide also engages the area of the brain that influences appetite and cravings. This action can further reduce your meal frequency and portion size.


Compounded Semaglutide


Semaglutide is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Wegovy* and Ozempic* that helps people, in combination with diet and exercise, lose and maintain weight. The Sanctuary Wellness Institute Offers compounded medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, physician-directed approach designed to help individuals achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It involves a personalized plan that can include dietary adjustments, an exercise regimen, behavioral modifications, and, when necessary, prescribed medications like semaglutide. This approach not only helps patients lose weight but also equips them with the knowledge and tools necessary to prevent weight regain in the future.

The cost of semaglutide injections can vary based on several factors such as the dosage prescribed, your location, and whether your health insurance policy covers the medication. On average, you can expect to pay about $800 to $1,000 per month without insurance. However, many health insurance providers and Medicare plans do cover semaglutide injections, at least in part, which could reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. Novo Nordisk also offers a patient assistance program for financially challenged patients.

At our weight loss clinic in Lakeland, Florida, we offer semaglutide injections for those seeking to lose weight. We allow our patients the option of coming in to pick up their medication or getting it delivered so they can self-administer semaglutide.

When you obtain your semaglutide injections through the Sanctuary, you can complete the entire process online. Our patients have the freedom to schedule and attend appointments with licensed medical weight loss doctors online and get their medication delivered, which means you won't have to leave the comfort of your own home to participate in our program.

How long it takes to lose weight on semaglutide can vary significantly among different individuals. However, clinical studies suggest that noticeable weight loss often begins within the first few weeks of starting the medication. It's crucial to understand that semaglutide is not a magic pill, but should be combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Semaglutide injections have been shown to facilitate significant weight loss. Studies suggest that patients lose, on average, 10% to 15% of their body weight over the course of six months of treatment. However, the exact amount can vary between individuals and is influenced by factors such as initial body weight, diet, physical activity, and the duration of the treatment. Patients with a higher initial body weight tend to lose more pounds but a smaller percentage of their total weight.

In order to maximize your weight loss on semaglutide, it's advisable to eat a balanced diet full of lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables and incorporate physical activity into your daily routine.

Your consultation will be like a typical in-person office visit. The doctor will examine your medical history and ask about your weight loss goals. Speaking openly and honestly will provide them with the information necessary to accurately assess your eligibility, rule out potential contradictions, and set realistic goals.

Doctors who supervise medical weight loss programs are compassionate providers who understand the complex challenges of obesity and the nuances of treating it.

How rapidly weight loss from semaglutide injections occurs varies from individual to individual and depends on the person’s response to the medication, as well as their lifestyle. Some individuals may start noticing weight loss within the first few weeks of injecting semaglutide, but most patients' results don't emerge until several months into their treatment.

Working with a doctor will help you lose weight at a steady, healthy rate since they’ll be able to moderate your dose throughout your treatment as needed.

Medical weight loss programs have proven to be effective for many individuals struggling with excess weight. They offer a comprehensive, scientific approach to weight loss that goes beyond mere diet and exercise regimens. A key component of many medical weight loss programs is the use of FDA-approved medications, such as semaglutide, which facilitate safe and steady weight loss. These programs also involve medical supervision and behavior modification strategies tailored to each patient to empower them to achieve their weight loss goals.

Like any medication, semaglutide injections carry side effects. The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. These symptoms often subside over time as your body adjusts to the medication. It's crucial to consult a healthcare professional before starting semaglutide, and to report any severe or persistent side effects.
