Zepbound Injections for Medical Weight Loss in Orlando

Zepbound is an injectable prescription medicine for long-term weight management in adults with obesity or overweight who also have weight-related medical problems. It is a brand by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly, which also manufactures Mounjaro. Although the active ingredient in both medications is tirzepatide, Zepbound is specifically approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to target obesity/overweight, while Mounjaro is FDA approved to treat type 2 diabetes.

Tirzepatide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist drug that has been approved by FDA as an adjunct to lifestyle changes for weight management in adults who are clinically obese or overweight. It’s also a dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor co-agonist, which means it’s in a class of medications that includes both GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonists. 

In user-friendly terms, 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. Even if you pause or stop the use of a GLP-1 medication, there is no evidence of weight regain after using a GLP-1, assuming there has been adequate change in lifestyle and eating habits.

GIP receptor agonists work with your GIP hormone to encourage the production of insulin in your body, as well as increasing sensitivity to insulin itself.

What to Know About Tirzepatide, the Active Ingredient in Zepbound

Tirzepatide’s dual-action mechanism stimulates both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, offering a broader span of metabolic benefits and appetite control than semaglutide alone. GIP induces weight loss by stimulating satiety in the hypothalamus – the area of the brain that produces hormones that control hunger. Tirzepatide’s benefits for weight loss in adults are as follows:

  • Enhanced appetite suppression
  • Insulin regulation
  • Increased metabolism

You self-administer tirzepatide injections at home, once weekly. Results of a 23% loss of body weight and an average weight loss of about 12 pounds per month are possible.

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

High demand for Zepbound has led to supply shortages, impacting many weight loss patients. Moreover, the brand name medication is very expensive. However, tirzepatide is a generic ingredient.

Solutions Weight Loss prescribes and dispenses tirzepatide, as well as semaglutide (the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy). 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 Zepbound or any other brand-name medication will never impact your medical weight loss program!
