There is no guarantee of weight loss with the use of Semaglutide.  On average most individuals see an average weight loss of 5 to 10% of your initial body weight.  Our program strongly encourages the combination of semaglutide, lifesytle changes and a healthy diet.

We are all individuals and so is the weight loss you will have with the use of Semaglutide.  Some individuals will see results within the first few weeks while other may not see results for a few months.  It really is dependent upon your body’s adjustment to the medication.

Yes.  As with any medication there are side effects.  Some of the most commonly noted are; dizziness, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues (diarrhea, constipation and gassiness), headache, and stomach issues (nausea, vomiting, pain or distension/bloat).  

This is a physician prescribed medication that you can travel with.  We do recommend inquiring with the airline if they have any specific rules/regulations regarding how to travel with you medications.  We do suggest using your carry on as it is safest to avoid crushing or freezing in the baggage compartment.

You will need to purchase an FDA approved sharps disposal container as well consult with your local health department or local trash removal services to see what the proper disposal regulations are in your community. 

In most circumstances insurance does not cover the use of Semaglutide for weight loss.  However, we do encourage you to contact your insurance provider directly for an answer.  We do not file insurance claims and do offer financing solutions.

It is highly recommended to do your injections the same day and time each week.  Make it a time and day that easily works for you so you can be consistent.   If you have to due to say leaving on vacation you can change the day so long as your last dose was given 2 or more days prior.

This does happen from time to time.  If you happen to miss a dose just remember the rule of 2.  

  1. Missed dose and the next scheduled injection is more than 2 days away, take the missed injection as soon as possible.
  2.  If you missed a dose and the next scheduled injection is less than 2 days away, DON’T administer the injection.  You will need to wait until your next regularly scheduled dose.
  3. If you missed a dose for more than 2 weeks, please call our office and schedule an appointment with the health care provider regarding restarting your Semaglutide treatment.

Do not use the medication past the 28 days, for the simple fact after that date the medication is ineffective.
