Want to register your interest for Wygovy and join the waiting list 


You may have seen the press coverage in February 2021 regarding a medication called Semaglutide, branded as Ozempic. The news reported that the medication had shown in clinical trials that 75% of participants lost over 10% of their body weight in conjunction with a reduced calorie intake.


Semaglutide was licensed for weight loss in the USA in June 2021 under the brand name Wegovy, and licensed in the UK in September 2021 - however, Wegovy is not yet available in the UK, should be available April 2023

What is the difference?

There are several key differences between Saxenda & Ozempic.

  • You inject once a week, rather than daily.

  • The weekly has been shown to be more effective for the long run in clinical studies.

  • The daily jab (Saxenda) is licensed for weight loss; the weekly (Ozempic) is not.

What is it?

Like the daily injection, the medication comes as a pre-filled injectable pen. It is advised by the manufacturer that you inject yourself in an area where you can pinch a good amount of subcutaneous fat. This can be the stomach area, the notorious love handle areas, top of the thighs or even the bottom! You use a CLEAN and NEW needle once a week, disposing of the needle after each injection.

It contains the active ingredient Semaglutide which is  similar to Liraglutide, mimicking a hormone in the body called glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1). This is an appetite hormone that helps regulate your hunger and is released by the intestines after a meal. The medication therefore helps you feel fuller and less hungry.

It is used as an adjunct to a calorie controlled diet and light exercise.

What is the dosage?

The starting dose for Ozempic is 0.25mg per week for 4 weeks. Official titration guidelines from the manufacturer then recommend 0.5mg per week for 4 weeks and then 1mg per week for continual maintenance.

What about side effects?

Like any new medication introduced to your body, your body will have to adjust to it. These side effects are generally mild and are transient - which means they will go after a few days once your body has adjusted.

Side effects can include:

  • Nausea

  • Headaches

  • Dry mouth / thirst

  • Constipation or loose stool

  • Tiredness

Some clients experience no side effects. Some experience one side effect. Some experience two side effects. Everyone is different and it is difficult to predict. However, during the consultation we go through the side effects & how to deal with them. We also send you aftercare information on how to deal with any potential side effects and the Patient Information Leaflet, which goes into greater detail.

What were the results?

During the clinical trials by the manufacturer, the average weight loss has been calculated as between 10lbs and 18lbs. Everyone is different, so your weight loss may be more or less. Try not to compare yourself to others losing weight - focus on yourself, your goals and your progress.

Who may be suitable for weight loss medication?

The medication may be suitable for an individual, but this must be assessed on a case-by-case scenario. There is no "blanket fit" for people to use prescription-only medications.

According to the manufacturer, the medication can be used for those with a BMI greater than 30 or those with a BMI greater than 27 (and one weight related co-morbidity e.g. hypertension).

It is also prudent to look at:

  • Your medical history

  • Your current medication

  • Body measurements

  • Current diet & eating habits

  • Current exercise levels

  • Other methods you have already tried

  • Your reasoning for wanting to consider medication


The programme is NOT suitable for:


  • Under 18's or Over 75's

  • Ladies who are breastfeeding or pregnant or actively trying to get pregnant.

  • Anyone who has had pancreatitis or thyroid tumours

  • Anyone with a history or direct family history of MEN2

  • Type 1 diabetics or patients taking diabetic medication
