Ozempic (semaglutide) is an innovative medication with immense potential for significant, sustainable weight loss. While originally intended to manage diabetes, Ozempic has proven highly successful as a weight management solution and is now frequently used by individuals struggling to control their weight.
How does Ozempic Work?
Ozempic is part of a class of medications called GLP-1 receptor agonists. By acting on both the brain and gastrointestinal tract, Ozempic reduces appetite, increases feelings of fullness, and slows stomach emptying. All these effects lead to reduced calorie intake and a healthier diet. Ozempic empowers individuals by curbing cravings and promoting fullness, which supports sustainable weight loss over time. Ozempic helps individuals meet weight loss goals that previously seemed unachievable!
Ozempic is Simple
Ozempic is designed to be easy and hassle-free to use. By administering it once weekly through a prefilled pen injection, this user-friendly approach increases treatment adherence, helping people stay consistent on their weight loss journey.
Ozempic is Affordable at Digestive and Liver Health Specialists
At Digestive and Liver Health Specialists, we prioritize affordable access to Ozempic. Unlike popular online options like GoodRx which can cost many thousands during the course of weight loss therapy, we offer Ozempic at far more affordable pricing. In fact, the cheapest current retail cost online is approximately $1315 per month for Ozempic. Our pricing is significantly more affordable. We believe effective weight loss solutions should be within reach for everyone and pride ourselves on offering cost-effective options that set us apart.
SAFETY AND CONSIDERATIONS
Ozempic is considered a generally safe medication for weight loss; however, certain conditions preclude its use. These include:
- Family history of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC)
- Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2)
- History of severe allergic reactions to semaglutide
- Breastfeeding or pregnant mothers
Inform your healthcare provider of all medications you are currently taking - be it prescription or over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements. Please be aware that certain diabetes treatments such as sulfonylureas and insulin may need adjusting based on how Ozempic affects stomach emptying.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS
While taking Ozempic, you may experience side effects like gas, indigestion, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, gastroenteritis or constipation. Other potential adverse reactions could include headache, low blood sugar levels, dizziness or fatigue. To minimize such side effects, your healthcare team will typically start you on a lower dosage and then gradually increase it over time to allow your body time to adapt.
