Wegovy (generic name: semaglutide) is a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. Wegovy is prescribed together with a moderate program of dieting and exercise for people who have been classified as overweight or obese. The primary effect of semaglutide in this treatment is as an appetite suppressant. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the gut after a meal. It prompts the release of insulin as well as slowing down the passage of the food through the stomach. This induces a feeling of satiety, which has the effect of postponing the desire for another meal. GLP-1 also targets receptors in the brain that control appetite, resulting in less craving for food. Eating less food can reduce body weight.

Dosage

The dosage regime is set by the prescribing doctor. Wegovy is self-administered by a weekly injection. The usual process for a new regime is to administer steadily increasing strengths until the full dosage is reached. For example begining with 0.25 mg per week in the first 4 weeks, then increasing to 0.5 mg in weeks 5 through 8,  1 mg in the weeks 9 through 12, and 1.7 mg from week 13. Where the full dosage is 2.4 mg, this will start from week 17. Once the full dose has been reached, the same dosage continues for as long as the prescribing healthcare professional allows. It may be possible to get the prescribing doctor to substitute Ozempic for Wegovy in the initial phases. Ozempic is identical to Wegovy, but has a maximum strength of 1 mg. This makes it a cheaper alternative to Wegovy for the first 3 months. It is important to read the Patient Information leaflet carefully before starting using this medicine. It contains specific guidelines on how Wegovy should be administered.

There are some common side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Stomach problems such as diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting, abdominal bloating, inflamed stomach (gastritis), upset stomach or indigestion, burping, excess flatulence, reflux or heartburn.
  • Feeling dizzy, weak or tired
  • Gallstones
  • Hair loss
  • Injection site reactions.

Most of these effects have been observed mainly during dose escalation, but if they persist or worsen, consult with a doctor or pharmacist.

Wegovy can cause low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) in patients with type 2 diabetes. The warning signs of hypoglycemia can include breaking into a cold sweat, cool pale skin, headache, shaking, fast heartbeat, nausea or extreme hunger, vision changes, feeling sleepy or weak, feeling nervous, anxious or confused, and having difficulty concentrating. The prescribing doctor should have told you how to treat low blood sugar levels and what to do if you notice these warning signs.

Wegovy is prescribed along with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity to promote weight loss and for weight management.

There are two conditions for determining the suitability of Wegovy:

  • Obese adults with an initial Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or higher
  • Overweight adults with an initial BMI between 27 kg/m2 and 29.9 kg/m2 with at least one weight-related comorbidity, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia (impaired blood lipid control), obstructive sleep apnoea, or cardiovascular disease.

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measure of weight in relation to height.

  • How do I store Wegovy?
    Before opening, store each pen in a refrigerator between 2– 8°C (35-46°F ). Do not freeze. Keep away from the cooling element. After opening, the pen may be stored for six weeks at a temperature below 30°C (86°F) or in a refrigerator (2– 8°C /35-46°F ) away from the cooling element. Do not freeze Wegovy and do not use it if it has been frozen. When not in use, store the pen closed with the cap in order to protect from light. Do not use the medicine if the solution is not clear and colourless.
  • Can I stop taking Wegovy?
    When a person wants to stop taking Wegovy, it is very important that they consult with their doctor and decide the right way to taper off for them. Everyone is unique and the treating physician can help advise how to stop taking Wegovy.
  • When should I administer Wegovy?
    The manufacturer's recommendation is to administer the required dose of Wegovy once a week and, if possible, on the same day and time of day each week, regardless of meals. If required, the day of the injection can be changed as long as at least three days have passed since the last injection. After moving to a new injection day, continue injecting once a week on the same day of the week.
  • What should I do if I accidentally inject a higher dose?
    If you accidentally inject a higher dose, consult with your doctor straight away. Side effects such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, which may cause dehydration, may be felt. If these persist or worsen go to a hospital emergency room and take the medicine package with you.
  • What should I do if I missed a dose of Wegovy?
    If five days or less have passed since the scheduled dose of Wegovy, it is possible to use it as soon as you remember. Following that, inject your next dose as usual on the scheduled day. If more than five days have passed since the scheduled dose was missed, the recommendation is to skip the forgotten dose. Inject the next scheduled next dose as usual. Do not double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
