What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is semaglutide that has been prescribed to a particular patient and produced in a compounding facility approved by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Ingredients for compounding pharmacies must come from suppliers who have received FDA approval. Additionally, these pharmaceuticals always undergo potency, sterility, and purity testing.

Compounding pharmaceuticals is legal, but since such drugs are not made in large enough quantities for general use, FDA pre-market approval is not necessary. Rather, compounded drugs are made in response to specific demands made by healthcare professionals. As a result, these prescriptions may involve different dosages and delivery systems than name-brand drugs.

About Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist. Such medications imitate the appetite-suppressing and digestion-delaying effects of the GLP-1 hormone.

As the primary component of Wegovy* and Ozempic*, semaglutide has undergone extensive safety and efficacy testing and secured FDA approval. In comparison to other weight-loss drugs, it also boasts a greater success rate.

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is injected subcutaneously once per week. As a result of the medication retarding gastric emptying and digestion,users consume fewer calories.

Furthermore, semaglutide affects the part of the brain responsible for cravings and hunger, empowering users to exercise better control over the size and frequency of their meals.


Compounded Semaglutide


As the primary pharmacological component of Wegovy* and Ozempic*, semaglutide fosters weight loss when taken in conjunction with a balanced diet and frequent exercise. The Sanctuary Wellness Institute offers prescriptions for compounded semaglutide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive, doctor-supervised strategy for reaching and sustaining a healthy weight. It entails a personalized program that can consist of dietary adjustments, physical activity, behavioral modification, and, if appropriate, the administration of prescription drugs like semaglutide.

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

Numerous patients who have taken part in medical weight loss programs have found success. These programs help people lose weight through tried-and-true methods that go beyond mere diet and exercise.

Your virtual consultation will be similar to a typical doctor’s appointment. More specifically, the physician will look over your medical background, assess your suitability for semaglutide, and, if necessary, work with you to establish realistic weight loss objectives.

A number of variables, such as your location, the dosage, and whether your insurance covers the medication can affect the cost of semaglutide injections. That said, if you don't have insurance, you should expect to spend about $800 to $1,000 a month.

Semaglutide injections are covered by certain Medicare programs and health insurance plans (at least in part). In addition, Novo Nordisk provides a patient assistance program for individuals who are struggling financially.

The Sanctuary Wellness Institute’s weight loss clinic Wilkes-Barre, PA prescribes semaglutide through telemedicine. In order to allow our patients to administer their medication themselves, we deliver these prescriptions directly to their homes.

Choosing the Sanctuary means being able to complete the entire process of getting your semaglutide prescription online. Our patients can schedule and attend doctor's appointments, make payments, and fill their semaglutide prescriptions from the comfort of their own homes.

Each user experiences weight loss at a different rate while using semaglutide. However, research indicates that weight loss usually begins within the first few weeks of starting the medication.

Patients' timeframes for losing 20 pounds on semaglutide can differ significantly depending on their metabolic rates, levels of physical activity, and dietary habits. That said, studies show that semaglutide users lose about five pounds per month, which means it would take an average user about four months to lose 20 pounds.

Semaglutide is not suitable for every patient. For example, the drug should not be taken by anyone with a personal or family history of multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) or medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC). Additionally, since semaglutide exacerbates severe gastrointestinal disorders like pancreatitis, it’s not recommended for patients with a history of these illnesses.

Before taking semaglutide, women who are pregnant or nursing should speak with their doctors because the medication has the potential to harm fetuses and newborns. Furthermore, semaglutide should not be used by anyone who’s allergic to it or any of its ingredients.

Your goals, the way your body reacts to the medication, and the advice of your physician will all influence how long your semaglutide treatment lasts. That said, semaglutide is typically used for long-term weight loss. Many patients use the medication for several months, a year, or even longer.

A physician should ultimately determine how long your treatment will last based on how your body reacts to semaglutide and how quickly you lose weight while on it.

Not all patients are good candidates for semaglutide. For example, those with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) should avoid using the medicine. Furthermore, individuals with a history of severe gastrointestinal diseases like pancreatitis should refrain from taking semaglutide since it can worsen such conditions.

Semaglutide has the potential to harm fetuses and newborns, so women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult their doctors before taking the medicine. Furthermore, anyone with allergies to semaglutide or any of its components should not use it.

Though semaglutide helps people lose weight, including visceral fat around the abdomen, consistent exercise and a balanced diet are necessary to achieve great results. Semaglutide can facilitate the loss of belly fat when paired with a healthy lifestyle, but it’s not a miracle drug that can magically eliminate belly fat on its own.

Like all medications, semaglutide injections can have side effects. Constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and gastric distress are among the most common ones. In most cases, these side effects go away as your body adapts to the medication.

Before taking semaglutide, be sure to speak with your doctor. Also, be sure to let them know if you experience any severe or long-lasting side effects during your semaglutide treatment.
