Why is Ozempic Out of Stock
Ozempic, also known as Semaglutide, has recently taken the world by storm for its not-so-well-kept secret: Weight Loss. This injectable pen created by the Danish super lab Novo Nordisk has become so sought after that it has now become nearly impossible to obtain worldwide. But what else is there to know about this miracle drug that has thrown the weight loss world into a frenzy? Let’s start from the beginning.
What is Ozempic?
Ozempic, which is made up of the active ingredient, Semaglutide, is used to treat type 2 diabetes and now more commonly known for aiding weight loss. This is a prescription only item in the form of an injectable pen which should be used on a once-weekly dosing schedule. Ozempic is available in 0.25mg, 0.5mg and 1mg pens.
Does Ozempic help with weight loss?
Currently, Ozempic is seen as an off-label treatment for weight loss and is looking to be licensed in the near future under the name WeGovy. Semaglutide is a compound made to act like a GLP-1 receptor, or also known as a glucagon-like-peptide agonist. Through the increase of insulin within the body and the reduction of glucagon, a decreased appetite is stimulated through a reduction in gastric emptying, making the patient feel fuller for longer. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise regime, Ozempic helps you to lose weight.
Why is Ozempic out of stock?
Over recent years, Ozempic has seen a rise to fame due to its scientific efficacy when it comes to dropping weight. With multiple studies showing just how influential this Semaglutide injection can be, even celebrities are now turning to it to see results fast. Due to the increased demand for Ozempic, the supply chain is unable to obtain and manufacture this drug to meet the pressures set on them by weight loss fanatics. When approached by the Daily Mail, Novo-Nordisk stated that they know of the stock shortage and have confirmed that ‘Unprecedented demand has tested our manufacturing capacity.’.
As well as this, semaglutide itself is an incredibly complex compound to create. It requires specialized equipment in a unique manufacturing setting as semaglutide is supposed to imitate a hormone within the body. With Novo Nordisk being headquartered just outside of Copenhagen in Denmark and production facilities in nine countries, the manufacturers have to sought this particular medicine on a global scale, which means that re-establishing the supply to fulfill a worldwide demand will take some time.
