What Is Semaglutide and How Can it Help You Lose Weight?

girl blue

Semaglutide is the active ingredient in weight loss injections like Wegovy* and Ozempic*. The medication was first available as a type 2 diabetes treatment that helped patients control their blood sugar, but doctors noted dramatic weight loss among their patients, leading researchers to explore semaglutide's viability for weight loss treatment.

Successful weight loss hinges on burning more calories than you consume. Semaglutide is an effective weight loss treatment because it 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.

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded Semaglutide is a tailored medication crafted in a state Board of Pharmacy or FDA-licensed compounding facility. It uses ingredients sourced from FDA-approved facilities and undergoes rigorous testing for potency, sterility, and purity.

While compounded semaglutide is legal, compounded drugs do not undergo pre-market approval by the FDA as they are not mass-produced for public consumption. Instead, they are prepared on a case-by-case basis in response to healthcare providers’ prescription orders. Consequently, their dosages and administration routes may differ from those of commercially available drugs.

Benefits of Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss

Semaglutide belongs to a family of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. These drugs simulate the effects of naturally produced hormones to control 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.

How Does Wegovy Work?

Semaglutide is viable for long-term use for patients who wish to maintain their weight loss. Maintaining health 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.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Semaglutide?

All medications carry indications and contraindications. It's critical to disclose your medical history to your doctor to ensure you are a good candidate for semaglutide treatment.

Those with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome (MENS) type 2 should not use semaglutide.

Patients with a history of pancreatitis, diabetic retinopathy, gallbladder disease, or kidney disease should discuss the nature of their condition with their doctor so the doctor can determine whether semaglutide would be safe and effective for them.

Side Effects of Semaglutide

The side effects of semaglutide are primarily gastric, since the medication primarily affects digestion. The occurrence, severity, and persistence of these effects can vary from person to person. Your doctor can advise you on managing them and reducing their prevalence. Common side effects of semaglutide include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Burping and gassiness
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Side effects often subside as the body adjusts to semaglutide and patients learn about foods that may trigger uncomfortable gastric responses. More severe but less common effects include:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Clay-colored stools or yellowing of the skin
  • Decreased urination
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Fainting or dizziness
  • Light-headedness, drowsiness, headache, irritability, or weakness, which may indicate low blood sugar
  • Persistent stomach pain that may spread to the back
  • Swollen legs, ankles, or feet
  • Vision changes

As long as you follow your doctor’s instructions, you likely won’t have to worry about suffering from any serious or long-lasting semaglutide side effects.

How to Use Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a weekly self-injection that you administer at your home. Patients typically rotate the injection site between their abdomen, thigh, and upper arm. Administering the medication at the same time each week will maximize its effectiveness.

You can take semaglutide with or without food. It is vital to follow the directions provided by your doctor. Semaglutide must be refrigerated and stored away from heat and light to preserve its safety and effectiveness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Semaglutide is FDA-approved to treat type-2 diabetes under the brand name Ozempic as well as for weight loss under the brand name Wegovy. Compounded semaglutide is legal and effective as a medical weight loss option, but it does not require FDA approval since it is mass-produced for the public. Remember that the only way to get safe semaglutide is with a prescription from a licensed medical professional filled at a reputable pharmacy.

Our medical weight loss program provides structured support to navigate the challenging journey of weight loss. Your doctor will assess your condition, prescribe appropriate medication, and set a target weight based on your goals. They guide you on diet and exercise choices to enhance medication effectiveness and overall health. They will regularly monitor your progress, addressing side effects promptly and adjusting treatment as needed to prioritize fat loss over muscle loss and safeguard your well-being.

Results vary by patient depending on their starting weight, dosage, and other factors. But in general, patients achieve the best results when they use the medication alongside diet and exercise. A recent study assessed patients’ response to semaglutide after two years and reported an average weight loss of 15%.

The Sanctuary's medically managed weight loss program can help you optimize semaglutide’s benefits by pairing you with a knowledgeable doctor.

Doctors typically begin patients on 0.25 mg of semaglutide for four weeks and then incrementally raise the dose over the following months. This tiered approach helps mitigate side effects by allowing the body to adjust to the medication. Patients typically reach the full 2.4 mg dose after 17 weeks.

Your doctor will assess your response to the medication and evaluate your progress during follow-up visits to tailor your dose.

The cost of semaglutide drugs varies by your location, the form of medication, and your insurance coverage. For example, a monthly supply of Ozempic typically costs $936, while Wegovy is listed at $1,349. However, the Sanctuary offers compounded semaglutide prescriptions, which often comes at more affordable rates. Consulting with your doctor is key to choosing the right treatment, followed by confirmation of coverage and expenses with your insurance and pharmacy.

It depends on your insurance plan. In most cases, Wegovy is the only form of semaglutide eligible for insurance because it is FDA-approved as a chronic obesity treatment. Many insurers decline to cover Ozempic for weight loss because doctors prescribe it off-label.

Other weight loss medications include:

  • Ozempic® is a weekly injectable semaglutide, FDA-approved for type-2 diabetes and used off-label for weight loss.
  • Wegovy® is a weekly self-injection of semaglutide and is FDA-approved for weight loss.

  • Mounjaro™ (tirzepatide) is an FDA-approved medication for type-2 diabetes that suppresses appetite and regulates blood sugar.
  • Wellbutrin, known generically as bupropion, is FDA-approved for treating depression, but is used off-label for weight loss. This NDRI (norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor) medication stops the brain from absorbing adrenaline and dopamine.
  • Qsymia® (phentermine-topiramate) is an FDA-approved pill that suppresses appetite and works similarly to an amphetamine.
  • Saxenda®, known generically as liraglutide, is an injectable prescription used for weight management.
