Weight Loss Medication

Over the last 15 years, Semaglutide has been used to treat type 2 diabetes, but was approved by the FDA in 2021 to help manage weight loss (along with diet and exercise) in obese or overweight adults with additional risk factors under the brand name Wegovy.
Semaglutide is injected under the skin with a small needle, once weekly, any time of day, with or without food, and should be injected on the same day each week.
Weight loss varies based upon lifestyle and diet changes made by the patient.
