How does Semaglutide work?
Semaglutide (brand name Ozempic) is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It is used as an adjunct to physical activity and reduced calorie diet for obese (BMI>30) and overweight (BMI>27) patients with at least one comorbid condition. Semaglutide works by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin release from the pancreas, slowing gastric emptying, inhibiting inappropriate post-meal glucagon release, and suppressing appetite thereby reducing food intake!
How does Tirzepatide work?
Tirzepatide is a “cousin” of Semaglutide/Ozempic. Tirzepatide is a GLP-1 (Glucagon Like Peptide-1) agonist. It mimics a hormone that targets areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite & food intake. It also slows gastric emptying. Unlike Semaglutide, Tirzepatide is also a GIP agonist. In addition to suppressing appetite, it may also improve how the body breaks down sugar and fat. Feeling fuller longer and having control over hunger and cravings aid in weight loss!
How to take it:
This drug is a subcutaneous injection- it is given by the patient weekly. It can be taken with or without a meal. The injections are given with an insulin needle in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm.
What happens if I miss a dose?
Take the missed dose ASAP! (As long as there is at least 48 hours before your NEXT dose is due)
How is the drug stored?
The vial must be stored in the refrigerator.
How do I get the medication once it is prescribed?
You can pick up the medication from the pharmacy or it will be shipped to your home.
What are the possible side effects?
Some patients experience mild nausea and GI upset.
How much weight should I expect to lose?

I am pregnant/trying to get pregnant/breastfeeding. Am I a candidate?
