 About Saxenda weight loss injection pen

Saxenda is an agonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1) and an effective weight loss medicine for adults and teenagers of 12-17 years who have a body weight of 60 kg or 132 pounds. 

Saxenda is a prescribed medicine for long-term weight management and has become more effective with increased physical exercise and a less-calorie diet. 

It contains pre-filled liquid solutions, helping you live a healthy life with healthy weight. So, what is Saxenda? What are its side effects? Let’s figure out more!

Saxenda Highlights

Saxenda (liraglutide) is a self-injectable medication and is used for weight loss in:

However, it is unclear whether Saxenda is effective for children under 12 years or children of 17 years with type 2 diabetes. Saxenda does not treat type 1 or 2 diabetes.

Moreover, Sexanda is similar to Victoza in terms of active ingredients but their strengths and approval conditions differ. So you must not use both drugs together.

Check if your BMI is in a healthy range:

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple way to check if your weight is healthy. It's calculated by dividing your weight (in kilograms) by your height (in meters) squared. The BMI categories are:

BMI categories are:

  • Underweight: BMI less than 18.5 kg/m²
  • Normal weight: BMI 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m²
  • Overweight: BMI 25 to 29.9 kg/m²
  • Obese: BMI 30 kg/m² or more

Mechanism of Action of Saxenda

Saxenda drug is an agonist of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptors (GLP-1). Liraglutide, the active ingredient in Saxenda, binds to the GLP-1 receptors in brain cells, affecting the part of the brain that normally regulates blood sugar, digestion, insulin level, and feelings of hunger, resulting in reduced appetite and increased feelings of fullness. 

Saxenda slows down your gut and reduces your calorie intake, helping you lose weight effectively.

Ingredients of Saxenda

Saxenda contains two types of ingredients: active and inactive. 

  • Active component — liraglutide
  • Inactive components — phenol,  disodium phosphate dihydrate, water, propylene glycol, and HCL/NAOH (for pH adjustments)

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist

A glucagon agonist is a substance that binds to and activates glucagon receptors. Glucagon, a hormone produced by the pancreas, increases blood glucose levels by stimulating the breakdown of glycogen (stored glucose) into glucose in the liver.

An agonist of glucagon mimics this action, promoting the release of glucose into the bloodstream and thus increasing blood sugar levels.

Who Can Take Saxenda?

Saxenda pen is an FDA-approved weight loss drug and is effective for:

Overweight adults with a BMI of 27-30 and certain complications like high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, or inadequate sleep problems.

  • Teenagers of 12 years with BMI of 30 or higher.
