Our Medical Weight Loss Program in Philadelphia, PA

If you’re seeking to lose weight and better your health, the Sanctuary Wellness Institute can help.

Participants in our medical weight loss program utilize compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which suppress appetite and cravings to promote weight loss. The vast majority of people who use these injections lose a significant amount of weight over the course of several months.

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in weight loss medications such as Mounjaro and Zepbound, while Ozempic and Wegovy contain semaglutide. The FDA has approved both of these medications, as well as the compounding pharmacy with which we collaborate.

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

What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is semaglutide that has been prescribed to a specific patient and manufactured at a compounding facility authorized by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Compounding pharmacies must use ingredients provided by FDA-approved suppliers. Additionally, these compounded drugs are always tested for potency, sterility, and purity.

Although compounded medications are legal to manufacture, FDA pre-market approval is not required because they are not produced in large quantities for the general population. Instead, they are created in response to specific requests made by healthcare providers. As a result, these prescriptions may involve different dosages and delivery methods than name-brand medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, doctor-guided approach to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It entails a personalized program that can include changing one's diet, increasing physical activity, making behavioral changes, and, if necessary, taking prescription medications such as semaglutide.

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

Participating in medical weight loss programs has helped many people achieve their weight loss objectives. These programs help people lose weight more effectively by employing a tried-and-true method that goes beyond diet and exercise.

Your online consultation will proceed similarly to a typical doctor's appointment. More precisely, the doctor will review your medical history, determine whether you are eligible for semaglutide, and, if necessary, assist you in setting realistic weight loss goals.

The cost of semaglutide injections can vary depending on several factors, including your location, the dosage, and whether your insurance covers the drug. In general, if you do not have insurance, you should budget about $800 to $1,000 per month.

Certain Medicare programs and health insurance companies cover semaglutide injections, at least in part. Novo Nordisk also offers a patient assistance program for those facing financial difficulties.

Semaglutide injections are prescribed via telemedicine through the Sanctuary Wellness Institute's weight loss clinic in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. We deliver this medication directly to our patients' homes so they can administer it themselves.

When you partner with the Sanctuary, you can complete the entire semaglutide prescription process online. Our patients can fill their semaglutide prescriptions, submit payments, and schedule and attend doctor's appointments from the comfort of their own homes.

Semaglutide generates weight loss at a different rate for each individual. However, studies show that weight loss typically begins within the first few weeks of taking the treatment.

The time it takes to lose 20 pounds on semaglutide varies greatly between patients due to factors such as metabolic rate, physical activity, and diet. However, research indicates that semaglutide users lose about five pounds per monthmeaning the average patient would need about four months to lose 20 pounds.

The length of your semaglutide treatment will be determined by your goals, how your body responds to the drug, and your doctor's recommendation. In general, semaglutide is used to help people lose weight over time. Patients often take the drug for several months, a year, or even longer.

Your doctor should ultimately determine the duration of your treatment based on how your body responds to semaglutide and how quickly you lose weight while taking it.

Semaglutide is not appropriate for everyone. People who have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) should not take semaglutide. The drug is also not recommended for patients who have a history of severe gastrointestinal diseases like pancreatitis, as semaglutide can exacerbate such conditions.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctors before starting semaglutide treatment, as the medication can endanger the health of fetuses and infants. Additionally, people who are allergic to semaglutide or any of its components should avoid taking this medication.

Though semaglutide promotes weight loss, including the reduction of visceral fat around the abdomen, users must exercise regularly and follow a well-balanced diet to achieve the best possible results. Semaglutide is not a miracle drug that will melt away belly fat on its own, but it can help you lose such fat when combined with a healthy lifestyle.

Like all medications, semaglutide injections carry side effects. Common ones include constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and an upset stomach. These effects usually go away once your body adapts to the drug.

Nonetheless, you should consult your doctor before using semaglutide, and if you experience any serious or persistent side effects during your treatment, be sure to contact them.
