Learn how you lose weight with a prescription for Ozempic® in Miami.
Weight loss is rarely a straight road. While healthy eating and exercise can help some reach their goals, it isn’t always enough.
Weight loss prescriptions promise faster results with fewer challenges. Though weight loss medication still requires a healthy diet and exercise to be effective, they may be just what you need to take the next step in your journey.
Ozempic® has received considerable attention as a weight loss prescription due to its incredible results for patients with diabetes who took the medication.
If you have heard of the prescription and are curious to learn how you might access Ozempic® in Miami, you have come to the right place.
What Is Ozempic®?
Ozempic® is name brand semaglutide. It comes as an injection in 0.5 mg, 1 mg, or 2 mg.
The primary use of Ozempic® is managing type 2 diabetes. The medication lowers A1C levels and improves blood sugar in diabetes patients.
The medication works best alongside diet and exercise.
Benefits of Ozempic®
An Ozempic® prescription offers several benefits, including:
- Healthier glucose levels
- Lowered risk of cardiovascular issues like strokes and heart attacks
- Weight loss
The FDA has approved Ozempic® as a medication for diabetes and to lower the risk of cardiovascular health risks, but it has not yet approved it as a weight loss medication, even though that is a benefit most patients have experienced after taking it.
How Does Ozempic® Help with Weight Loss?
While Ozempic® isn’t an FDA-approved weight loss medication, it has helped many patients lose weight. The average patient with type 2 diabetes who took 1 or 2 mg of Ozempic® lost 14 pounds. Those who took .5 mg lost about 8 pounds.
Patients who received a placebo and only practiced a healthy diet and exercised lost just three pounds within the same timeframe.
Because of the medication’s weight loss benefits, patients will take it to help regulate weight. However, before taking the drug, they should consult their primary care provider as it might not suit everyone.
The prescription works for weight loss by slowing down the rate at which food leaves the stomach. It also stimulates the pancreas to release insulin for high sugar levels, and it prevents the liver from releasing too much sugar, which is how it regulates glucose levels for patients with diabetes.
The slower digestion is what has the most significant impact on weight. When food takes longer to leave the stomach, people will feel full longer and eat less, helping them regulate their weight.
Potential Risks of Taking Ozempic® Prescriptions
All medications come with a slight risk as everyone’s bodies react differently. Patients should be clear with their PeakPerforMAX medical provider about any underlying health conditions, family history, or current medications before taking Ozempic® as those will increase a patient’s chances of developing a more severe side effect. Those with pancreas or kidney issues have the highest risk of severe side effects.
Some more common side effects include:
- Pancreas inflammation
- Vision changes
- Low blood sugar
- Kidney problems
- Allergic reactions
- Gallbladder problems
- Nausea and vomiting
- Diarrhea or constipation
- Abdominal pain
Is Ozempic® Safe for Weight Loss?
While Ozempic® is not FDA-cleared as a weight loss medication, it is safe. Doctors will even prescribe it if traditional weight loss methods are not working.
Researchers have performed several studies on semaglutide, the active ingredient in Ozempic®, for weight loss. One study of 175 patients with obesity saw the participants lose an average of 5.9% of their body weight within three months and 10.9% within six months of taking semaglutide regularly along with diet and exercise.
How to Administer an Ozempic® Injection
Ozempic® only requires a weekly dose with the injectable pen.
Patients should administer the injection on the same day each week to regulate the dosage unless a medical professional prescribes a different dosage. If you want to change the day of the week, take the medication more than two days after the last dose.
When you miss a dose, take it within five days and continue with the regular schedule. If it has been longer than five days, skip that dose and wait until next week’s dose.
If the medication doesn’t last the entire week, talk with your PeakPerforMAX medical provider about increasing the dosage. Patients should use a pen with a higher dosage rather than administer the pen multiple times a week, as that can have serious health consequences.
