What is Wegovy?
Wegovy (semaglutide) injection 2.4 mg is the brand name for the NICE and FDA approved injectable prescription drug for chronic weight management.
It’s used for adults with obesity (BMI ≥30), or who are overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27), or those with a weight related comorbid condition, to help them lose weight and keep the weight off.
The bottom line upfront:
Wegovy should be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie meal plan and increased exercise.
Wegovy contains semaglutide and therefore patients should not take it if they’re taking other semaglutide-containing products, or any other GLP-1 receptor agonist medications.
It is not known if Wegovy is safe to take with prescription, or over-the-counter medicines, or herbal weight loss products.
