Wegovy is a prescription weight loss shot for chronic weight management in adults who are obese or overweight with at least one weight-related condition.
It has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for weight loss in addition to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
Doctors prescribe Wegovy for weight loss in obese adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. It can also be prescribed in patients who are overweight (with a BMI of 27 or more) if they also have weight-related medical problems. This may include high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.
Wegovy contains the active ingredient, Semaglutide. Semaglutide is also sold under the brand names Ozempic and Rybelsus. These brands are used for adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus to control high blood sugar levels. They are not currently FDA-approved for weight loss.
There are other drugs that are similar to Wegovy, here are some examples:
Ozempic injections are approved to lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. Ozempic is also approved to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Similarly to Ozempic, Mounjaro is an injectable prescription medicine that is used together with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. It contains the active ingredient Tirzepatide.
Zepbound is an alternative once-weekly weight loss injection. It contains the active ingredient Tirzepatide and works by reducing your calorie intake and appetite. It is effective for weight loss when combined with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
The Semaglutide weight loss injection works by slowing the movement of food through the stomach and may decrease appetite.
In the body, a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) regulates our appetite and calorie intake. It works in many areas of the brain involved in controlling our appetite.
GLP-1 is released in response to a meal and acts in different areas of the brain to help people feel full and satisfied after eating. It also slows down the emptying of stomach contents so you feel fuller for longer. As a result, you eat fewer calories and lose weight.
Wegovy is a GLP-1 receptor agonist and is 94% similar to the natural GLP-1 hormone, and mimics its actions.
Studies have shown that Wegovy is effective for weight loss. Here are some of Wegovy’s weight loss results from clinical trials:
In addition to a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity, people in this study taking Wegovy lost more weight than people taking the placebo overall.
Wegovy comes as a pre-filled injection pen that is injected under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or upper arm. It should be used once a week (preferably on the same day each week), at any time of day. It may be taken with or without food.
Wegovy is typically prescribed as part of an approach that includes lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet and regular physical activity.
Here is how to inject Wegovy correctly:
Wash your hands.
Check your Wegovy pen before using it. Do not use it if:
Choose your injection site:
Remove the pen cap by pulling it off the pen and inject Wegovy:
Safely throw away your pen after each use.
Wegovy comes in five strengths: 0.25mg, 0.5mg, 1mg, 1.7mg, and 2.4mg. Each dose comes in its own color pen.
Many people start with a low dose of 0.25mg. They gradually increase the dosage over time. Eventually, they reach a maintenance dose of either 1.7mg or 2.4mg. The maintenance dose usually depends on how you respond to the medicine and if you can tolerate it.
This slow dose increase gives you time to adjust to treatment and reduce side effects.
This drug can only be prescribed for weight management in people with a BMI of 30 or more, or 27 and above with at least one weight-related medical condition.

There may be some interactions between Wegovy and other medicines. Wegovy also slows down the stomach emptying rate. This can affect the way some medicines work.
Do not use this medicine if you take other GLP-1 receptor agonists or other Semaglutide-containing products, such as Ozempic, and Rybelsus.
Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take including prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, natural health supplements and more. Especially tell your doctor if you take insulin or other medicines used to treat diabetes.
Although there’s no direct interaction between Wegovy and alcohol, there are a still few things to consider. If you’re using Wegovy for weight management, alcohol contains quite a few calories and can contribute to your daily calorie count, which may hinder weight loss.
