Liraglutide (sold under the brand name Saxenda) is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that works by increasing feelings of fullness and reducing appetite.
It is typically prescribed to individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher or a BMI of 27 or higher with weight-related health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
However, like all medications, Saxenda may cause side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headache, decreased appetite, fatigue, dyspepsia, and GERD.
Ozempic (semaglutide) is another GLP-1 receptor agonist used to treat type 2 diabetes, but it has gained popularity for its success in promoting weight loss. It is administered once a week via injection under the skin and mimics the action of the hormone GLP-1, which regulates insulin release and helps to lower blood sugar levels. Ozempic may cause side effects similar to Saxenda.
Wegovy (semaglutide) is another prescription medication belonging to the GLP-1 receptor agonist class, which suppresses appetite and increases feelings of fullness to reduce calorie intake. It is also administered once a week via injection under the skin, and its side effect profile is similar to Saxenda and Ozempic.
Mounjaro (tirzepatide) is a unique medication that acts on both GIP and GLP-1 receptors, making it the first dual agonist for these receptors. It stimulates both receptors and is prescribed for weight loss.
Other GLP-1 agonists available as injections for weight loss include Trulicity (dulaglutide) administered weekly, Bydureon BCise (exenatide extended-release) administered weekly, Byetta (exenatide) administered twice daily, and Victoza and Saxenda (liraglutide) administered daily and weekly, respectively.
Our weight loss doctor will oversee your medical weight loss and ensure that it is performed safely. Your medical weight loss program and doctor may request to have your blood work reviewed at certain periods as well as an electrocardiogram of your heart. Your vitamin administration, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, rate of weight loss, nutrition, energy, and progress will be monitored as well.
