Wegovy™ Medical Weight Loss

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.

Can I use Wegovy with other weight loss and weight management medications?

What if I miss a dose?

Wegovy is a once-weekly injectable drug, so it’s important to make sure your appointments are scheduled well in advance to avoid missing any doses. However, unexpected things happen, so here’s what to do if you miss a dose of Wegovy.

  • If you miss one dose of Wegovy and your next dose is more than 48 hours away, schedule your missed dose as soon as you can.
  • If you miss one dose of Wegovy and your next dose is less than 48 hours away, skip your missed dose. Then, take your next dose according to your usual schedule.
  • If you miss two or more doses of Wegovy in a row, talk with your doctor. They may need to temporarily adjust your dosage.

If you aren’t sure whether to take a missed dose of Wegovy or to skip it, talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

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 even though they belong in the same group, they treat different things.

  • Wegovy (semaglutide) is intended to help people lose weight alongside regular exercise and a low-calorie diet. (For details, see the “Wegovy for weight loss and weight management” section above.)
  • Ozempic (semaglutide) is intended to treat type 2 diabetes.
  • Trulicity (dulaglutide) is intended to treat type 2 diabetes.
  • Victoza (liraglutide) is intended to treat type 2 diabetes.

For more information about whether Wegovy, Ozempic, Trulicity, or Victoza is right for you, talk with your doctor or pharmacist.

Is Wegovy used to treat type 1 or type 2 diabetes?

No, Wegovy (semaglutide) is not approved to treat type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Wegovy is used for long-term weight management in certain adults alongside regular exercise and a low-calorie diet.

If you’re interested in taking other forms of semaglutide (such as Ozempic) to treat diabetes, talk with your doctor.

Will I need to use this drug long term?

Wegovy may be used as a long-term treatment to help people lose and maintain a healthy weight. If you and your doctor determine that Wegovy is safe and effective for you, you may use it long term.
