What is Wegovy? 

Wegovy is an injectable treatment designed to encourage weight loss. When used with a balanced diet and an exercise regime, it can help to reduce weight in patients whose BMI (Body Mass Index) is over 30. 


How does Wegovy work? 

Wegovy is comprised of the drug Semaglutide, which belongs to a family of medicines known as glucagon-like peptide agonists. Semaglutide can also be found in other weight loss/diabetic medication - such as Ozempic

GLP-1 agonists work by mimicking and copying the natural work of hormones called incretins. Incretins are a group of hormones that control the functions of the pancreas. GLP-1 agonists act on the pancreas by increasing insuling production and reducing glucagon levels in the body.

To help promote weight loss within the body, the GLP-1 agonists also cause the stomach to slow down gastric emptying, stimulating a fuller feeling and ultimately promotes weight loss. 

What are the benefits of using Wegovy?

According to the Wegovy website, a 68 week medical study was carried out on 1961 adults who were all suffering from obesity or health problems that resulted in excess weight gain. They were instructed to use Wegovy in conjunction with a strict calorie deficit and physical activity and have overall found by the end of the testing period that adults on average achieved a 15% decrease in weight compared to people who had only lost nearly 3% using a placebo. 

In having to maintain strict practices in order to utilise this medicine to the fullest, you'll also get into some good practices, such as a healthier diet and an increase in physical activity. 

How do I use Wegovy?

• Read the Instructions for Use that comes with WEGOVY®.
• Use WEGOVY exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to.
• WEGOVY is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach (abdomen), thigh, or
upper arm. Do not inject WEGOVY® into a muscle (intramuscularly) or vein (intravenously).
• Change (rotate) your injection site with each injection. Do not use the same site for each
injection.
• Use WEGOVY 1 time each week, on the same day each week, at any time of the
day.
• Start WEGOVY with 0.25 mg per week in your first month. In your second month, increase
your weekly dose to 0.5 mg. In the third month, increase your weekly dose to 1 mg. In the
fourth month, increase your weekly dose to 1.7 mg and in the fifth month onwards, increase
your weekly dose to the full dose of 2.4 mg.
• If you need to change the day of the week, you may do so as long as your last dose of
WEGOVY was given 2 or more days before.
• If you miss a dose of WEGOVY and the next scheduled dose is more than 2 days away (48
hours), take the missed dose as soon as possible. If you miss a dose of WEGOVY® and the next
schedule dose is less than 2 days away (48 hours), do not administer the dose. Take your next
dose on the regularly scheduled day.
• If you miss doses of WEGOVY for more than 2 weeks, take your next dose on the regularly

What are the possible side effects of Wegovy?

Wegovy may cause serious side effects, including:

  • inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis). Stop using Wegovy and call your healthcare provider right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that will not go away, with or without vomiting. You may feel the pain from your abdomen to your back.
  • gallbladder problems. Wegovy may cause gallbladder problems, including gallstones. Some gallstones may need surgery. Call your healthcare provider if you have symptoms, such as pain in your upper stomach (abdomen), fever, yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice), or clay-colored stools.
  • increased risk of low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) in patients with type 2 diabetes, especially those who also take medicines for type 2 diabetes such as sulfonylureas or insulin. This can be both a serious and common side effect. Talk to your healthcare provider about how to recognize and treat low blood sugar and check your blood sugar before you start and while you take Wegovy. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include dizziness or light-headedness, blurred vision, anxiety, irritability or mood changes, sweating, slurred speech, hunger, confusion or drowsiness, shakiness, weakness, headache, fast heartbeat, or feeling jittery.

  • serious allergic reactions. Stop using Wegovy and get medical help right away, if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat; problems breathing or swallowing; severe rash or itching; fainting or feeling dizzy; or very rapid heartbeat.
  • change in vision in patients with type 2 diabetes. Tell your healthcare provider if you have changes in vision during treatment with Wegovy.
  • increased heart rate. Wegovy can increase your heart rate while you are at rest. Tell your healthcare provider if you feel your heart racing or pounding in your chest and it lasts for several minutes.
  • depression or thoughts of suicide. You should pay attention to any mental changes, especially sudden changes in your mood, behaviors, thoughts, or feelings. Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any mental changes that are new, worse or worry you.
