Our Medical Weight Loss Program in Lancaster, PA

If you want to lose weight and improve your health, the Sanctuary Wellness Institute can help.

Participants in our medical weight loss program use compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which reduce appetite and suppress cravings to induce weight loss. The vast majority of people who use these injections lose a considerable amount of weight over a period of several months.

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in weight loss medications like Mounjaro and Zepbound, whereas semaglutide is the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy. The FDA has approved both of these medications, as well as the compounding pharmacy with whom we work.

Our program also includes ongoing physician supervision and care team support.

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide is prescribed to a specific patient and prepared in a compounding facility licensed by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Compounded drugs must be checked for potency, sterility, and purity, and their components must be sourced from FDA-approved suppliers.

Compounding pharmaceuticals is lawful, but since they are not mass-produced for the general public, they do not require FDA pre-market approval. Instead, they are manufactured in response to specific demands from medical practitioners. As a result, the dosages and administration procedures for these prescriptions may differ from those of commercially available brand-name pharmaceuticals.

About Semaglutide Injections

girl with laptop

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist. These drugs replicate the appetite-suppressing and digestion-delaying properties of the GLP-1 hormone.

Wegovy* and Ozempic* both contain FDA-approved semaglutide, which has undergone extensive clinical testing to assure efficacy and safety. Practitioners have less experience with other weight loss drugs, and those drugs don’t have the same track record as semaglutide, either.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is self-injected subcutaneously once a week. The medication lowers users’ caloric intake by slowing digestion and delaying gastric emptying. When you take the drug, food passes through your stomach more slowly, making you feel fuller for longer periods of time and experience less hunger.

Semaglutide also affects the brain area responsible for cravings and hunger, enabling users to better control the size and frequency of their meals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, physician-directed approach to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It consists of a personalized plan that involves dietary modifications, exercise, behavioral changes, and, if necessary, prescription medications such as semaglutide.

This treatment not only helps patients lose weight, but also teaches them how to keep it off.

Medical weight loss regimens have been shown to be effective for many overweight people. These programs employ a tried-and-true weight-loss strategy that extends beyond basic diet and exercise. Many medical weight loss programs rely on FDA-approved medications like semaglutide to help participants achieve safe and consistent weight loss.

Your online consultation will be similar to a typical doctor’s office visit. More specifically, the doctor will examine your medical history and inquire about your weight loss objectives. Being upfront and honest will enable them to determine your eligibility for semaglutide, rule out any contraindications, and, if appropriate, help you set realistic weight loss objectives.

The cost of semaglutide injections can vary according to your location, the dosage, and whether your health insurance covers the prescription. Without insurance, you should budget between $800 to $1,000 a month.

Some Medicare programs and health insurance providers cover semaglutide injections, at least in part. Novo Nordisk also offers a patient aid program for those who are struggling financially.

Semaglutide injections are prescribed at the Sanctuary Wellness Institute's weight loss clinic in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. To enable self-administration, we send our patients' medication directly to their homes.

When you get your semaglutide prescription through the Sanctuary, you can finish the whole process online. Our patients can easily book and attend doctor’s visits online, as well as get their semaglutide prescriptions delivered.

The time it takes to lose weight while using semaglutide varies greatly between individuals. However, research suggests that weight loss typically begins within the first few weeks of using the medication.

The time it takes to lose 20 pounds on semaglutide can vary greatly from person to person due to factors such as diet, physical activity, and metabolic rates. According to research, though, users can expect to lose about five pounds per month using semaglutide for weight loss, which would mean it’d take about four months to lose twenty pounds.

Yes, it is possible to continue losing weight after using semaglutide for three months, provided the medication is part of a comprehensive plan that includes a healthy diet and regular physical activity. However, the effectiveness of semaglutide can vary from person to person.

The length of time you’ll need to take semaglutide for weight loss depends on your objectives, how you respond to the medicine, and your doctor's guidance. Typically, semaglutide is recommended for long-term weight loss. It’s common for patients to take the drug for many months, a year, or even longer.

That said, the exact duration of your treatment should be determined by a healthcare practitioner based on your weight loss progress and reaction to semaglutide.

Some individuals may not be good candidates for semaglutide injections. This includes pregnant or breastfeeding women, children under the age of 18, and those with a history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).

Semaglutide injections can induce side effects, just like any other medication. The most frequent ones are stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These symptoms usually subside as your body adjusts to the medication.

However, before using semaglutide, you should still consult your doctor. In addition, you should contact them if you experience any serious or long-term side effects while using semaglutide.
