Side effects

Like any new medication you take, your body will have to adjust to it and it is likely to cause some side effects. It’s thought that more than one in 10 people might experience headaches, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, tummy ache or nausea. These do tend to go away over time once your body has adjusted to it.

Wegovy Weight Loss

Clinical trials have shown that Wegovy can be effective for weight loss in adults who have obesity or are overweight with at least one weight-related condition. In these trials, people taking Wegovy lost significantly more weight than those taking a placebo. On average, people taking Wegovy lost 15-20% of their body weight, compared to 2-3% for those taking a placebo. However, it’s important to note that results may vary depending on individual factors such as starting weight, lifestyle, and adherence to treatment. wegovy uk price

How do I use Wegovy?

Wegovy is a prescription medication that is administered through subcutaneous injections once a week and should be used on the same day each week at the same time of day, if possible.

Wegovy comes in a pre-filled weight-loss injection pen. When you take Wegovy you need to gradually increase your dose on a monthly basis. This involves starting with a low dose of Wegovy and gradually increasing it over a period of 5 months until the desired effect is achieved or until side effects become intolerable.

All patients commencing Wegovy and not transitioning from Saxenda will start on a weekly dose of 0.25 mg per week for four weeks. Once a patient has had four weeks of the starting dose they will increase to the next dose in the step up phase
