More information about Saxenda
Saxenda, or the skinny jab, is a weight-loss treatment that comes as an injection. It helps reduce appetite and manage your weight.
It is prescribed to obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more, or 27 or more if they already have weight-related medical problems (e.g. high blood pressure, type-2 diabetes, high cholesterol).
Everyone is different. Saxenda should start to work within 11 hours after being administered. But, you should expect to see visible changes anywhere from 2 weeks to 9-12 months of treatment. However, you need to make sure your diet and exercise regularly to get the best results.
When you buy Saxenda online from HealthExpress, your order will include both sharps (injection pens) and a bin.
The skinny jab helps you lose weight by reducing your appetite. This means you will eat less and lose weight gradually. However, it is still important that you exercise regularly and eat mindfully for Saxenda to work.
Saxenda is a drug that contains the active ingredient liraglutide. This drug helps increase the levels of a hormone called GLP-1 in the body.
GLP-1 controls how much you eat and how often you eat. When GLP-1 levels increase, it slows down digestion and stomach emptying. This means that you feel full for longer, so you do not feel the need to eat as much or as often.
Saxenda is a weight loss drug that helps people healthily lose weight in the long term.
Onefound that people who took the drug Liraglutide (along with a healthy diet and exercise) lost around 4-6kg over 20-60 weeks. This was 5-10% more than those who took a placebo (an inactive drug).
Studies have found that the benefits of Saxenda are long-lasting. Onefollowed patients taking Saxenda for over 2 years. They found that patients who stayed on the drug maintained a 7.8kg weight loss.
has also found that Saxenda can lower your risk of diabetes and heart problems.
It is always important to follow the advice of a healthcare professional when taking medication. The patient information leaflet (PIL) provides detailed information about the medicine, including how to take it and potential side effects.
Here is a general guide to using a Saxenda pen:
A Saxenda pen can deliver doses of 0.6mg, 1.2mg, 1.8mg, 2.4mg or 3mg.
It is a daily injection, and the dose of Saxenda will change each week. This is until you reach the recommended daily maintenance dose (3mg).
Once you are taking the 3mg dose, each pen should last six days. There is a table contained in the PIL that will make these instructions easier to follow. Or, you can follow our guide below.
If you have not lost at least 5% of your initial body weight after 12 weeks of treatment at 3mg per day, the treatment should be discontinued. You should then talk to your doctor about other possible treatments.
If you forget to take Saxenda, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if more than 12 hours have passed since your usual time, skip the missed dose and continue the next day.
You should not take more than 3mg a day. If you take more than you should, you may experience nausea, vomiting, and low blood sugar. If you use more Saxenda than you should, you should seek medical attention even if you feel fine.
Store injection pens in the refrigerator as soon as you receive them, at a temperature between 2 - 8°C. Do not freeze your pens. At HealthExpress, we ensure the medication stays at the right temperature by delivering it packaged in the correct insulation materials.
Once you have used your pen for the first time, you may keep it in a cool dark place. However, they should still be stored at temperatures below 30°C. One Saxenda pen can last for 6 weeks once opened.
Before each dose, you should make sure that the solution is clear. If it is cloudy, it may not have been stored correctly and should be discarded.
Like any prescription treatment, the skinny jab can cause side effects.
The most common side effects include:
Some people feel sick when they start using this treatment, but this usually gets better as the body gets used to it.
There can also be local reactions at the injection site, such as a rash, redness, and itching.

Saxenda helps you lose weight by reducing your appetite. Saxenda works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which is responsible for regulating hunger. When Saxenda binds to the GLP-1 receptor, it reduces the rate of digestion and stomach emptying. This leaves you feeling fuller for longer. The best results are seen when Saxenda is combined with a healthy diet and exercise regime.
Yes, Saxenda is a clinically proven weight loss treatment and has been licensed for use by the UK regulatory body for Medicines (MHRA).
No, Saxenda contains Liraglutide which is a GLP-1 analogue. However, it can be used to treat type 2 diabetes as it can help manage blood sugar levels.
No, Saxenda is not available on the NHS. It is only available on private prescription.
Saxenda should be administered once daily, preferably at the same time each day. Your dose will be increased each week. For a full set of instructions on how to use and inject Saxenda, please refer to our informational video.
Saxenda should be injected subcutaneously (under the skin) in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. The injection site should be changed each time to reduce the risk of skin reactions.
Once opened, a saxenda pen can last for about a month (6 weeks). However, as Saxenda should be injected every day, the pens will last a varying amount of days. Your first pen should last you for 17 days; your second pen should last you for 8 and a half days and your third pen should last you 6 and half days. Once you reach the 3mg dose (your fourth pen and onwards), each pen should last you 6 days.
If you miss a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember. However, if it's nearly time for your next dose, you should skip the missed dose and continue the course of treatment from your next scheduled dose.
The injection needles must be replaced each time you inject and disposed of in a sharps bin, which we provide if you don't already have one. Once your sharp bin is full, it should be taken to your local council to be disposed of. The Saxenda pens themselves should be taken to a pharmacy to be disposed of.
There is no fixed time period for Saxenda treatment and you can continue to take it until you reach a healthy BMI. A doctor will regularly review your BMI to monitor your progress. However, if after 12 weeks you have not lost at least 5% of your body weight, treatment should be discontinued.
No, you should not take Orlistat with Saxenda. If you are already taking Orlistat and want to take Saxenda instead, please consult a healthcare professional.
Whilst Saxenda isn't known to interact with alcohol, drinking alcohol can sometimes make potential side effects worse. It could also hinder your weight loss efforts, so should be avoided.
Site was easy to navigate and delivery was made the next day securely wrapped with all instructions clear. I received 20% discount being a new customer but even without the discount I haven’t found it cheaper on any other website.Erin W
Great & so easy to use. Saxenda has curbed my appetite making it so easy to make sensible choices. Saxenda is amazing as I've been struggling for so many months. I was nervous to start with & didn't start it until a week after I purchased it. At the moment I haven't had to increase the daily dose & hardly any side effects. Instructions are very easy to follow. I love it & have already recommended it to my friends.Denise R

I have been struggling to lose weight for sometime and had tried all kinds of diets, I heard about Saxenda through my local pharmacist. After answering a questionnaire and being weighed I was told I would be able to take it. I personally did not have any of the side effects listed, my appetite did drop quite considerably and I found I was no longer looking for snacks between meals and also ate less at meal times. For me it worked very well and I am pleased with the results.Nicola P
