If you're seeking to lose weight and improve your health, The Sanctuary Wellness Institute can help.

Participants in our weight loss program use compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which suppress appetite and cravings to generate weight loss. While partaking in our program, you'll receive ongoing guidance from a physician and support from our care team.

Most patients who use these injections achieve significant weight loss over the course of several months.

Semaglutide is the active ingredient in weight loss drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, and tirzepatide can be found in Mounjaro and Zepbound. Both substances are FDA-approved for weight loss, and the compounding pharmacy we partner with is also FDA-approved.

What Is Compounded Semaglutide?

what is compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is a medication prescribed for a specific patient and manufactured in a compounding facility that’s licensed by the FDA or a state board of pharmacy. Compounded medications must be tested for potency, sterility, and purity, and their ingredients must come from FDA-approved suppliers.

The act of compounding medications is legal, but because they are not manufactured in large quantities for the general public, they do not require FDA pre-market approval. Instead, they are created in response to specific orders from medical professionals. As a result, the dosages and administration methods for these medications may differ from those of commercial brand-name drugs.

About Semaglutide Injections

girl with laptop

Semaglutide is a member of the class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. These medications mimic the appetite-suppressing and digestion-slowing effects of the GLP-1 hormone.

Semaglutide, which is FDA-approved, is used in Wegovy* and Ozempic*. Strict clinical trials have been conducted to verify its efficacy and safety. Practitioners have less experience using other weight loss drugs to assist patients in losing weight, and those drugs don’t have the successful track record semaglutide does, either.

For people who want to lose weight, semaglutide is an effective long-term option.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is self-injected subcutaneously once per week. The drug acts as an appetite suppressant by mimicking the hormones that naturally interact with your digestive system and reducing feelings of hunger.

Semaglutide reduces caloric intake by slowing digestion and delaying gastric emptying. Because food passes through your stomach more slowly when you take the medication, you feel fuller for longer and have less of an appetite.

Semaglutide also affects the part of the brain that regulates cravings and appetite. This allows you to further reduce the size and frequency of your meals.


Compounded Semaglutide


Semaglutide is the primary medical component of Wegovy* and Ozempic* that generates weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The Sanctuary Wellness Institute provides compounded semaglutide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, doctor-directed strategy for helping people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It entails a personalized plan that can include dietary changes, physical activity, behavioral modifications, and, if necessary, prescription medications such as semaglutide. This method not only helps patients lose weight, but it also provides them with the skills and information they need to keep it off.

The prescribed dosage, your location, and whether your health insurance covers the medication are all factors that can influence the cost of semaglutide injections. Without insurance, you should budget about $800 to $1,000 per month.

In general, Medicare plans and many health insurance companies cover semaglutide injections to some extent, which could lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Novo Nordisk also offers a patient assistance program for those who are struggling financially.

The Sanctuary Wellness Institute offers semaglutide injections at our weight loss clinic in Tampa, Florida. To enable self-administration, we offer our patients the option of having their medication delivered or picked up in person.

You can do everything online when you get your semaglutide prescription from the Sanctuary. You will not have to leave your home to participate in our program because our patients can conveniently schedule and attend appointments online, as well as have their medication delivered.

The time it takes to lose weight while on semaglutide varies greatly from person to person. However, clinical research shows that weight loss typically begins within the first few weeks of starting the drug. That said, semaglutide isn't a miracle drug. Rather, it should be used in conjunction with a nutritious diet and regular exercise.

According to recent research, patients typically lose 10% to 15% of their body weight over the course of a six-month semaglutide regimen. The precise amount, however, varies from person to person and is determined by factors such as your starting body weight, diet, exercise level, and the duration of treatment. Individuals who start out heavier tend to lose more weight.

To optimize your weight loss while taking semaglutide, eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins, and be sure to engage in regular physical activity.

Your consultation will be similar to a regular office visit. The doctor will review your medical history and ask about your weight loss goals. By being open and honest, you can provide them with the information they need to determine your eligibility, eliminate any contraindications, and help you set reasonable goals.

The rate of weight loss with semaglutide injections varies from patient to patient and is influenced by lifestyle choices and the patient's response to the drug. Some people may notice weight loss within a few weeks of receiving a semaglutide injection, but the majority of patients do not see results for several months.

Working with a doctor will help you lose weight steadily and safely, as they’ll be able to adjust your dosage as needed throughout your treatment.

Medical weight loss programs have proven to be effective for many overweight individuals. Such programs use a tried-and-true weight-loss strategy that goes beyond a simple diet and exercise routine. FDA-approved drugs such as semaglutide, which promote safe and consistent weight loss, are staples of many medical weight loss programs.

Semaglutide injections carry side effects just like any other medication. The most common ones include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These symptoms usually go away as your body adjusts to the medication. However, before taking semaglutide, you should still consult a healthcare provider. You should also notify them of any severe or long-term side effects if you experience any upon commencing your treatment.
