Zepbound contains the active ingredient Tirzepatide and is a GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist. It is approved in adults with obesity or who are overweight and have weight-related medical problems.
Zepbound aids in weight loss and weight maintenance and should be combined with a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. Zepbound contains the same active ingredient found in Mounjaro, which is used to treat type 2 diabetes.
Tirzepatide, the active ingredient in Zepbound works by activating two different hormone receptors. These are the glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors.
GLP-1 is responsible for regulating your appetite and calorie intake, and GIP can help contribute to this by reducing how much you eat and increasing how much energy you use. This helps you gradually lose weight and also helps you lose more fat mass compared to lean mass.
It also slows down the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine, so you feel fuller for longer. However, this effect reduces over time.
Clinical trials have shown that Zepbound is effective for weight loss compared to a placebo (an inactive drug).
The results from a 72-week trial showed that adults lost an average of:
This was compared to 3.1% of body weight lost in patients taking the placebo.
Results from another study showed that 50.1% and 56.7% of adults taking the 10mg and 15mg doses of Zepbound respectively lost ≥ 20% of their body weight. Whereas only 3.1% of those in the placebo group had the same results.
It might take a few weeks before you start noticing changes in your appetite and weight. Your weight loss also depends on your calorie intake, diet and exercise routine.
Zepbound is now approved for adults with obesity (BMI of ≥30 kg/m2), or those who are overweight (BMI of ≥27 kg/m2) with at least 1 weight-related health problem. This could include type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obstructive sleep apnea or heart conditions.

Zepbound slows down the process of food leaving the stomach, which means it could affect how well the oral medications you take are absorbed into the body. Tell your doctor all the medicines you take including prescription medicines, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, or herbal supplements.

Zepbound may also affect how well oral hormonal birth control pills work. For patients taking these medicines, it's recommended to switch to a different form of contraception (such as an IUD or implant). It is also advised to use an additional barrier method of contraception (such as condoms) for 4 weeks after starting Zepbound and for 4 weeks each time the dose is increased.
Each Zepbound pen is pre-filled with your specific dose of the drug. You inject each pen once weekly.
Pick a day that fits into your schedule and inject this medication on the same day every week. If you need to switch the day you take your dose, ensure there is a gap of at least 3 days (72 hours) between doses.
