What is tirzepatide?

 

Tirzepatide (Mounjaro)  is a synthetically made drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is the first drug that is made from glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptor and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, which is used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus as a single therapy or with other diabetes medicines [1]. It is still not approved for treating type-1 diabetes mellitus and has not been studied in patients with pancreatitis.

Is tirzepatide available for weight loss?

 

Yes. Tirzepatide can effectively be used for weight loss in obese adults. It decreases appetite and slows down food digestion and absorption, making you feel full more quickly and for a long time.

 

A study conducted with participants with obesity issues stated that treatment with Tirzepatide had an average weight loss of 10%-20% of their body weight after 72 weeks [2].

 

What class of drug is tirzepatide?

 

Tirzepatide is an incretin mimetic drug. It contains both GIP and GLP-1 hormones. And because Tirzepatide contains both the incretin hormones (stimulates beta cells in the pancreas to release insulin), they are called also called Twincretin [3].

 

What is tirzepatide’s brand name?

 

Tirzepatide is an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and for weight loss. It is marketed under the brand names Mounjaro and Zepbound.

How much does mounjaro cost?

 

According to Drugs.com, the cost for Tirzepatide subcutaneous solution (2.5 mg/0.5 mL) is around $1,135 for a supply of 2 milliliters. However, you can save on your prescription by using a savings card, a 90-day supply, or a manufacturer coupon.

 

Can I get trzepatide for weight loss?

 

Yes, tirzepatide is used for weight loss in adults with obesity or type 2 diabetes. You need to consult your doctor and get yourself examined first before considering tirzepatide. Patients with a personal or family history of thyroid cancer or a condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome shouldn’t take tirzepatide. Also, if you have type 1 diabetes, you shouldn’t go for tirzepatide.

 

Who cannot take tirzepatide?

 

 You should not use Tirzepatide or Mounjaro if you are allergic to it, or if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (a type of thyroid cancer), or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (tumors in your glands). Tirzepatide is an incretin mimetic drug and a dual glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) receptor agonist 2

 

If you’re allergic to tirzepatide or you have a family history of thyroid cancer, it’s best to avoid taking tirzepatide. Patients with tumors in glands should also avoid taking tirzepatide.

Tirzapatide vs. Semaglutide

 

Tirzepatide and semaglutide are both type 2 diabetes drugs that are often used for weight management. While studies showed that tirzepatide is potentially more effective [4], it’s too early to get to a conclusion, and substantial research is needed. Both drugs can help you feel less hungry.

 

Tirzepatide (Mounjaro) contains glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. Tirzepatide mimics the GLP-1 hormone and the GIP hormone. The GIP hormone can also trigger insulin production and trigger your sense of fullness which could help in weight loss.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist sold under brand names such as Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus. The FDA has approved Wegovy for managing weight.

 

How effective is Mounjaro for weight loss?

 

Clinical trials suggest that Mounjaro is somewhat effective in causing weight loss in people who take it. A study conducted by Eli Lilly amongst participants achieved a total average weight loss of 26.6% over 84 weeks.

Another Cleveland Clinic study showed that 2500 obese adults taking 5 mg of Mounjaro for 72 weeks lost 15% of their body weight [5].

 

Can I get tirzepatide without diabetes?

 

Yes, Tirzepatide can be used for weight loss in adults with obesity or type 2 diabetes.

 

How long can you take tirzepatide?

 

According to Mayo Clinic, the usual adult dose for Tirzepatide is 2.5 mg subcutaneously once a week for the first 4 weeks. After 4 weeks, the dosage should be increased to 5 mg subcutaneously once a week. For additional glycemic control, the dosage can be increased in 2.5 mg increments after at least 4 weeks on the current dose.

 

Is tirzepatide bad for the kidneys?

 

A study concluded that Tirzepatide may help protect the kidneys in people with type 2 diabetes [6]. It helps slow down the decline of kidney function (eGFR) and prevents the growth of protein in the urine, called microalbuminuria. This helps people with chronic kidney disease or those at a high risk of heart disease.
