Wegovy is an FDA-approved prescription medication that can help individuals achieve and maintain weight loss. It helps suppress feelings of hunger, helping you feel fuller and decrease caloric intake.
How Does Wegovy Work?
Wegovy, also known as semaglutide, is a once-weekly injection that works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. This hormone helps regulate appetite and food intake, leading to reduced calorie consumption and increased feelings of fullness. When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, Wegovy can provide significant results.
What Results Can I Expect with Wegovy?
Depending on your starting point, you may start to see small changes as early as a few weeks in. However, typically our patients who are members of the semaglutide program begin to see drastic changes in their body composition within the first 6 weeks after starting the program. Continual use yields greater and longer-lasting weight loss results! So don’t get discouraged if it takes a few weeks—you will get there eventually!
Wegovy vs Ozempic
Wegovy and Ozempic are in the same drug class. Both of them have the active ingredient semaglutide, and provide similar results. The key difference is that Ozempic is approved by the FDA as a diabetes medication, while Wegovy is approved as a weight loss medication.
Wegovy Side Effects
Wegovy is a prescription medication used for chronic weight management in adults. While it can be effective in helping individuals lose weight, it may also cause some side effects. Common side effects of Wegovy may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, fatigue
