Wegovy Prescription Online

How does Wegovy work?

Wegovy is a prescription drug used for chronic weight management in overweight or obese adults who also have health problems related to their weight. It comes as a liquid solution inside of a single-dose pen. You inject it under your skin once per week. 

This drug works by mimicking GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a hormone that stimulates the pancreas to release insulin and suppresses glucagon secretion, slowing gastric emptying. GLP-1 can also help regulate appetite by controlling blood sugar levels. 

People taking Wegovy may eat fewer calories and lose weight over time. As a result, weight-related conditions may also improve when taking Wegovy. It’s most effective when used with a healthy, reduced-calorie diet and exercise. 

Is Wegovy FDA approved?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Wegovy for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight adults with weight-related health problems in June 2021

Prior to FDA approval, researchers studied Wegovy’s safety and effectiveness in four 68-week trials. Nearly 3,000 patients received Wegovy in these four studies, and the FDA determined it safe and helpful enough to approve it.

Is Wegovy effective for weight loss?

FDA trials determined Wegovy is a safe and effective way for overweight or obese people to lose weight and manage chronic health problems related to weight. The medication is most effective when coupled with a calorie deficit (eating fewer calories than you burn) and routine exercise. 

Your doctor can help you determine whether Wegovy is a good option for you.

What to avoid with Wegovy

Don’t take Wegovy if you’re allergic to semaglutide or any other ingredients in the drug. Your doctor may also recommend against Wegovy if you have certain health conditions or take any medications that can negatively interact with it. 

To ensure Wegovy is effective, follow your prescriber and pharmacist’s instructions when you use it. Don’t use Wegovy if the injector pen is discolored or contains particles. Also avoid injecting Wegovy into skin with scars, stretch marks, bruises, tenderness, or redness.

Wegovy may result in dizziness, so it’s best to avoid substances that can also make you dizzy, such as alcohol or marijuana. If you feel dizzy or tired after taking Wegovy, avoid operating machinery or driving.

It’s possible Wegovy may pose harm to a fetus. Don’t attempt to get pregnant when taking Wegovy or for two months afterward, and tell your doctor immediately if you think you may be pregnant.

Side effects of Wegovy

As with other drugs, Wegovy may result in unwanted side effects. The most common side effects that occur with Wegovy include: 

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea 
  • Constipation 
  • Bloating
  • Belly pain
  • Indigestion
  • Heartburn
  • Gas
  • Headache 
  • Dizziness 
  • Fatigue

Your prescriber can help if Wegovy is causing bothersome side effects. Rarely, more serious side effects can occur when taking this drug. If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction after taking Wegovy, call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately. 

Dosages

Wegovy comes as a liquid solution in a pre-filled pen that you inject under the skin. It’s available in the following dosage strengths: 

  • 0.25 milligrams per 0.5 milliliters of liquid solution (0.25 mg/0.5 mL)
  • 0.5 mg/0.5 mL
  • 1 mg/0.5 mL
  • 1.7 mg/0.75 mL
  • 2.4 mg/0.75 mL

Typically, doctors prescribe Wegovy at a starting dose of 0.25/0.5 mL. Patients inject the dose once a week for four weeks. 

Every four weeks, the dosage strength increases. By week 17, you may  take a maintenance dose of Wegovy, which is 2.4 mg of Wegovy once every week. 

Depending on your results and side effects, your doctor can help you determine how long to take Wegovy.

Interactions

Before you take Wegovy, tell your healthcare provider if you take any other medications or supplements. Certain drugs can negatively interact with Wegovy, reducing its effectiveness or causing unwanted side effects. 

Drugs that interact with Wegovy include: 

  • Glimepiride (Amaryl)
  • Glipizide (Glucotrol)
  • Glyburide (Diabeta)
  • Insulin glargine (Lantus, Toujeo)
  • Insulin detemir (Levemir)
  • Insulin degludec (Tresiba)

Notify your prescriber, too, if you take any oral medications (tablets, capsules, or liquids). Wegovy may affect the absorption of these medications. 

Cost of Wegovy

The cost of Wegovy depends on several factors, such as your insurance, pharmacy, dosage strength, and how many pens you buy at a time. 

Generic drugs usually cost less than brand-name ones; however, at this time, Wegovy isn’t available in generic form. 

Like other drugs, Wegovy is generally more affordable with health insurance, but cost varies by plan. Your insurance provider and pharmacist can help you determine the exact price. 

Buying Wegovy online can help reduce the cost. An online doctor can prescribe the drug, and you can fill it at an online pharmacy. The pharmacy can then deliver Wegovy to your home.
