More information about Wegovy
Wegovy is a weight loss medication that has been proven to work in clinical trials. It is made by Novo Nordisk and comes as a pre-filled pen that you can give yourself injections with, once a week.
It works by making you not want to eat as much. When used with a healthy diet and exercise, it can help you lose weight.
It’s available on prescription for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 and above, or 27 and above with weight-related conditions.
The drug works by reducing your appetite. It means you consume fewer calories and you will lose weight gradually.
The active ingredient, Semaglutide, is a type of medicine called a GLP-1 agonist. This is the same type of medicine as the weight loss drug Saxenda. These medications work by making your body produce more of a hormone called GLP-1. This hormone affects how hungry you feel.
Increasing GLP-1 levels slows down digestion and stomach emptying. It affects your appetite because you feel fuller for longer which means you eat less. Over time, this results in weight loss.
Clinical trials have demonstrated that Wegovy is effective for weight loss.
Adults lost an average of 35 lbs after 15 months on Wegovy.
looked at the effects of Wegovy versus a placebo drug over 68 weeks. The average starting weight of the participants was 232 lbs. The participants were told to eat less food and exercise more.
They found that 83% of participants lost 5% of their original body weight or more using Wegovy, compared to just 31% using the placebo. In addition, they found that participants lost an average of 35 lbs (15kg).
Besides losing weight, treatment can have several benefits.
The drug will only be prescribed for people with a BMI of 30 or above, or 27 or above with a weight-related condition such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.

Several risks may mean the medication is not suitable for you, such as if you have:
You should always consult your doctor before starting any medication.
You start on the lowest dose, 0.25mg, and increase the dose gradually over the months until you reach the maintenance dose (2.4mg).
As both brands contain the same ingredient, moving from one to the other is simple. The doses are identical. If you are on a 0.25mg dose of Ozempic, you can use the 0.25mg dose of Wegovy.
If you have finished a course of one dose of Ozempic, you can move up to the next dose of Wegovy. For example, if you have just finished your 0.25mg Ozempic pen, you can start the 0.5mg Wegovy pen when your next dose is due.
Wegovy is a pre-filled injection pen that you inject yourself with once weekly.
Each time you inject, you need to prepare the needle.
Prepare the needle carefully each time so you know that the pen is safe and ready to use.
You must check the flow before your first injection with each new pen. Turn the dose selector to 0, and a drop of solution should appear.
Once the pen is ready, you can inject it. Read the patient information leaflet thoroughly before using Wegovy for the first time.
Dispose of the needle carefully after each injection. Place the outer cap back on the needle and unscrew the needle from the pen. Discard the needle into a sharps bin.
As with all prescription medicines, it can cause some side effects. This is especially true during the first few months.
The most common side effects of Wegovy may include:
Most of these side effects should disappear once your body has gotten used to the medication. However, if you experience any persistent or worrying side effects, speak to your healthcare provider.
If you take any sulfonylurea medicines for diabetes, you may develop low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia) whilst using Wegovy. Make sure you learn the signs of hypo before using this medication.
You can buy Wegovy online from HealthExpress. You will be required to complete an online medical consultation which will be reviewed by one of our registered doctors. Once approved, the medication will be sent to your chosen address.

The Wegovy needles need to be disposed of in a sharps bin which we provide you with. Once that bin is full, you need to contact your local council for safe waste disposal. The pen itself can be disposed of at your local pharmacy.
Unopened Wegovy pens must be kept in the fridge between 2-8°C. If they are not refrigerated within 48 hours of dispatch, you can still use them safely for up to 6 weeks.
Once opened, they can either be kept in the fridge or at room temperature (no higher than 30°C) for up to 6 weeks. Always check the colour of the solution before using it.
If you’re on Saxenda, you can start Wegovy on the day after your last Saxenda dose.
Your progress will depend on many factors. Most people will start to see significant results after 4 weeks of treatment. For others, it may take longer.
No, you don’t need to take Wegovy with food.
