Wegovy™ Weight Loss Medication

Wegovy is the most effective FDA-approved weight loss medication for long-term weight management.

What is Wegovy™ weight loss treatment?

Wegovy is a once-weekly injectable prescription medication that can assist patients with long-term weight management.

Wegovy™ (semaglutide) injection may be prescribed to adults whose BMI falls into the overweight (≥27 kg/m2) or obese (≥30 kg/m2) range AND who have at least one weight-related condition (e.g., high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, etc,.).

This treatment works to facilitate weight loss in several ways, including:

  • Slowing stomach emptying
  • Reducing appetite
  • Increasing insulin release

Wegovy is most effective as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that may include exercise, behavioral changes, calorie restriction, and diet changes as determined by a physician. Unlike many other weight loss medications, this medication can be used for long-term weight loss management.

How does Wegovy compare with Ozempic, Trulicity, and Victoza?

Wegovy, Ozempic, Trulicity, and Victoza all belong to a group of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. But they have some important differences.

Both Wegovy and Ozempic contain the active drug semaglutide. Trulicity contains the active drug dulaglutide, and Victoza contains the active drug liraglutide.
