Injections for Medical Weight Loss – What You Need to Know About Ozempic

Ozempic is a prescription medicine for adults with type 2 diabetes that has been found to help with weight loss when combined with positive lifestyle changes. In clinical trials, participants with type 2 diabetes who took 2 mg of Ozempic lost an average of 14 pounds, while those who took 1 mg lost an average of 12.5 pounds.

Because of its effectiveness in this area, weight loss has become the popular off-label use for Ozempic. As an easily recognized brand name, many people researching injections for medical weight loss immediately think of Ozempic. This may even be what led you to our Solutions Weight Loss website. Now that you’re here, this is what you need to know about Ozempic.

Semaglutide is the Active Ingredient in Ozempic

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist drug that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an adjunct to lifestyle changes for weight management in adults who are clinically obese or overweight. In plain language, GLP-1s aid in lowering your body’s set point (the weight your body fights to maintain) by impacting areas in the brain to help increase your energy expenditure.

How Semaglutide Works to Help You Lose Weight

Semaglutide’s single-action mechanism solely activates the GLP-1 receptor to regulate insulin and appetite. Its benefits for weight loss in adults are twofold:

  • Appetite suppression
  • Insulin regulation

You self-administer semaglutide injections at home, once weekly. Results of a 15% loss of body weight and an average weight loss of 10 pounds per month are possible.

Your Next Question May Be, “Is There an Ozempic Weight Loss Clinic Near Me?”

Ozempic is a brand by pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk. High demand for Ozempic has led to supply shortages, impacting many type 2 diabetes and weight loss patients. Moreover, the brand name medication is very expensive. However, semaglutide is a generic ingredient.

Solutions Weight Loss prescribes and dispenses semaglutide (which is also the active ingredient in Wegovy), as well as tirzepatide (the active ingredient in Mounjaro and Zepbound). We offer high-quality compounded GLP-1 medications at an affordable price. This gives you the following major advantages:

  • Not having to ask for an expensive prescription that your health insurance most likely won’t cover. During a 30-minute consultation, Dr. William E. Newsome – Medical Director and co-owner of Solutions Weight Loss – will determine which medication is most clinically appropriate for your individual situation.
  • Upon determining the best medication for you, the prescription will be filled and you will leave with it that same day. Shortages of Ozempic or any other brand-name medication will never impact your medical weight loss program!
