Frequently Asked Questions
Will I gain any weight back after I've lost it?
When you have reached your goals in treatment, we will ensure you have the resources and understanding to help you maintain your weight.
Will I need to eat/purchase any special foods?
Yes and no. Changes to your eating habit will be a major component of your weight-loss treatment, so changes to the foods you eat will likely be necessary to achieve your goal. But, there are no specific foods that have to be purchased. We will educate you on getting high quality protein and sources of essential nutrients.
Will my insurance cover this medication?
Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance. We design our reasonable service prices accordingly without compromising the highest quality products and care.
Is Semaglutide for weight loss?
Yes. Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injectable prescription medication for adults who are either overweight or obese. Technically referred to as a “GLP-1 receptor agonist medicine,” Semaglutide mimics glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) by increasing insulin secretion and suppressing appetite.
Is Semaglutide the same as Wegovy™ or Ozempic® for Weight Loss?
Yes. Both Wegovy™ and Ozempic® are branded medicines made by Novo Nordisk, a Danish multinational pharmaceutical company. Both Wegovy™ and Ozempic® contain semaglutide and should not be used while taking other GLP-1 receptor agonist medicines.
How does Semaglutide work?
Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1). GLP-1 specifically targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. This can help you eat less, thereby helping you lose weight.
Is Semaglutide approved for weight loss?
Yes. Semaglutide injections were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for weight loss on June 04, 2021. In fact, Semaglutide is the first approved drug for chronic weight management in adults since 2014.
How often do I take Semaglutide?
To stay in accordance with the program, you should take Semaglutide once a week, at any time of day, with or without food. Our providers give Semaglutide injections at Connexus Clinic.
Does Semaglutide have possible side effects?
Yes. Semaglutide may cause the following side effects: headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, fatigue, upset stomach, constipation, and diarrhea, as well as belching and heartburn. Check with your doctor immediately if any of the aforementioned side effects occur while taking Semaglutide. Ask us about our Semaglutide Success Kit if you are interested in eliminating any of these symptoms.
