What is Wegovy Weight Loss Injection?

Wegovy, also known as semaglutide, is the latest weight loss medication approved by the US FDA on June 4, 2021. Wegovy is now available in the UK (approved by UK NHS: September 2023).

It's for adults dealing with obesity—or excess weight—with a body mass index (BMI) over 30. It can also be used by people with a BMI over 27 who have weight-related problems, such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes.

Wegovy injection contains semaglutide as the key ingredient. Semaglutide acts like a natural hormone in your body called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1, produced by the gut, is released after eating and plays a key role in controlling appetite, blood sugar levels, and weight loss.

‎How Wegovy Works?

By mimicking GLP-1, Wegovy can help you feel fuller (feel less hungry) for longer and reduce your cravings, leading to significant weight loss.

This medication helps you eat less by turning on certain receptors in your body. When those receptors are activated, you feel fuller and more satisfied, which can make it easier to eat less and lose weight.

You can buy Wegovy weight loss injection pens online in the UK, from Ashcroft Pharmacy.

How effective is Wegovy weight loss injection?

When used alongside a reduced-calorie limitation and increased exercise or physical activity, Wegovy has shown impressive results:

  • About 85% of individuals lost more than 5% of their body weight.
  • 66% of participants shed over 10% of their body weight.
  • Nearly half, or 48%, experienced a weight loss of more than 15%.
  • 30% achieved a weight loss exceeding 20%.

In comparison, only 60% of individuals using Saxenda® alongside a reduced-calorie diet and physical activity counselling achieved a 5% weight loss.

Wegovy doses

Wegovy comes in five doses, starting from 0.25mg and going up to a maximum of 2.4mg. Our practitioners will determine the right dosage schedule for you, typically starting low and gradually increasing it over weeks to minimize side effects.

How Long Does Wegovy Take to Work?

Wegovy is an effective weight loss treatment when combined with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

In clinical trials (Step 1 and Step 4), the following weight loss results were observed:

After 6 Months:

Approximately 85% of participants lost at least 5% of their initial body weight.

After One Year:

About 66% of participants lost more than 15% of their initial body weight.

These results demonstrate the effectiveness of Wegovy® in supporting weight loss goals over time when used as directed alongside lifestyle changes.

What is the difference between Wegovy and Saxenda?

Wegovy® and Saxenda® are both medications used for weight loss, but they have some key differences:

Active Ingredient: 

  • Wegovy® contains semaglutide.
  • Saxenda® contains liraglutide.

Dosage:

  • Wegovy® is injected once weekly, with the dosage typically increasing monthly.
  • Saxenda® requires daily injections, with a gradual increase in dosage each week.

Effectiveness:

Studies show Wegovy® may lead to greater weight loss than Saxenda.


Side Effects:

Wegovy may have a slightly lower discontinuation rate due to side effects compared to Saxenda.

Wegovy Alternative

Mounjaro is gaining popularity as a strong alternative to medications like Wegovy and Saxenda. In the UK, both Wegovy and Saxenda have been approved as injectable treatments for weight loss.

Directions

How to Take Wegovy?

This treatment should be taken in conjunction with a well-balanced, calorie controlled/nutritional diet. No more than 30% of your calories should come from fat and your diet should generally be rich in fruit and vegetables.

You need to ensure to keep good levels of hydration by drinking 8-11 cups of liquid per day (2.7L)

The injection weight loss medication must be administered using the following method: Inject your dose of medication under the skin (subcutaneous injection) in your stomach area (abdomen), upper leg (thigh), or upper arm, as instructed by your healthcare provider. Do not inject into a vein or muscle. Never share your pen or needles with another person. You may give an infection to them, or get an infection from them.

Before you inject Wegovy pen:
 
Make sure your pen isn't expired, has the right dose, and looks okay (not appear to be damaged or broken). The medicine should be clear. Have a sharps bin ready for used needles.


Pick a spot:

Choose your thigh, arm, or tummy (avoid belly button area). Rotate spots weekly.
Clean: Wipe your injection site with soap and water or an alcohol wipe. Attach a new needle.

Inject:

New pen check (only once): If it's your first pen, press the "flow check" button (two dots) to see medicine flow. If no drop appears after two tries, change the needle and try again. Still no drop? Talk to your doctor.

  • Set your dose: Take the exact dose your doctor prescribed
  • Push the button: Inject the needle, hold the button until the counter reaches 0, and remove the needle.

After injection:

  • Cap and toss: Put the used needle cap back on, then unscrew and throw the needle in your sharps bin
  • Recap and track: Put the cap back on your pen and keep track of your doses

Remember: Wegovy works best with healthy eating and exercise. For full details, see the official leaflet.

Wegovy may potentially lead to thyroid tumors, including cancer. If you notice a lump or swelling in your neck, experience hoarseness, have difficulty swallowing, or feel short of breath, inform your healthcare provider,

as these could be symptoms of thyroid cancer. Studies with rodents have shown that Wegovy® and similar medications can cause thyroid tumors, but it's unclear if this applies to humans.

Do NOT use Wegovy if you or any family member have a history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).
