What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is a weekly injectable medicine developed specifically for weight loss to regulate appetite and reduce food cravings. When used alongside a calorie deficit and exercise routine, it is proven to regulate appetite and reduce food cravings.

How does Wegovy work?

When we eat, our bodies release a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1 (otherwise known as GLP-1), which releases insulin, helps regulate blood sugar levels and induces satiety. In other words, it lets our brains know that we're full and that it's time to stop eating. Semaglutide, the main ingredient present in the Wegovy weight loss injections, is able to mimic this natural hormone, helping to regulate your appetite and slow down your 'gastric mobility'. As a result, you consume fewer calories and, ultimately, reduce your body weight.

How effective is Wegovy for weight loss?

As a higher-dose injection of semaglutide, Wegovy has been shown in clinical trials to be more effective for weight loss than some of its alternatives.

The study from 2021 looked at 1,961 obese and overweight adults who were randomly assigned Wegovy injections or a placebo. After 68 weeks, those taking Wegovy lost an average of 15.3 kg, whereas the placebo group lost an average of 2.6 kg.

It's important to mention that the participants also implemented lifestyle changes, particularly in their diet and exercise habits, which helped enhance the impact of Wegovy as a weight loss drug.

How do I get Wegovy in the UK?

In 2023, the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended Wegovy as a safe option for weight management in the UK.

Since Wegovy is a prescription-only medicine, it is not available over the counter. Instead, a doctor or pharmacist can prescribe Wegovy, which is available for purchase through telehealth clinics, pharmacies, and GPs across the UK.

FAQ

What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is a once-weekly injectable medication containing semaglutide, an active ingredient that is commonly used to stabilise blood sugar levels and aid weight loss.

It has been studied and trialled as a weight management drug and, when used alongside a calorie deficit and exercise routine, it can be an effective aid to weight loss.

Wegovy was recently approved for use in the UK in late 2023, and is now available 2023. It is suitable for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30+, or 27+ with weight-related health issues, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, PCOS, asthma or high cholesterol.

What is the dosing schedule on Wegovy?

The Wegovy dosing schedule has been designed to reduce the likelihood of side effects while increasing your dose over time for maximum results. The weekly injection starting dose is 0.25mg, and the highest available dose is 2.4mg. Most will follow the suggested dosing schedule below, however, you can work closely with your prescriber to customise your journey based on budget and desired weight loss outcomes.

Week 1-4: Inject 0.25mg weekly (1 dose per week)

Weeks 5-8: Inject 0.5mg weekly (1 dose per week)

Weeks 9-12: Inject 1.0mg weekly (1 dose per week)

Weeks 13-16: Inject 1.7mg weekly (1 dose per week)

Weeks 17+: Inject 2.4mg weekly (1 dose per week)



Our Care Team will maintain regular contact with you during the initial months of treatment to monitor your progress, address any side effects, and place you in touch with your prescriber to make necessary dose adjustments.

Please reach out to our Care Team at hello@myjuniper.co.uk if you wish to remain on a lower dose and we can place you in touch with your prescriber.

Higher doses of medication may be available from the manufacturer, but are not suitable for everyone. Your prescriber will determine if it is appropriate to move to a higher dose.

Do not increase your dose early as this will not improve your results and will most likely lead to increased side effects.

These dosage increases are not compulsory and you should only increase your dose if you are tolerating the medication.

How does Wegovy work?

When we eat, our bodies release a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1 (otherwise known as GLP-1), which releases insulin, helps regulate blood sugar levels and induces satiety. In other words, it lets our brains know that we're full and that it's time to stop eating.



Semaglutide, the main ingredient present in the Wegovy weight loss injections, is able to mimic this natural hormone, helping to regulate your appetite and slow down your 'gastric mobility'.



This is why Wegovy is such an effective medication for weight management [1]. But, what exactly does it mean?



In short, it means that the food you eat stays in your stomach for longer, so you don't experience hunger as often as usual and are less likely to consume snacks and larger meals. As a result, you consume fewer calories and, ultimately, reduce your body weight.

What are the benefits of Wegovy?

The biggest benefit of Wegovy lies in its ability to deliver sustained weight loss. Since you feel more satisfied between meals, you experience fewer cravings and are able to adopt a healthier diet that you can stick to.

Start a consultation to find a treatment plan that's best suited to you and your goals.

What are the side effects of Wegovy?

Different people respond to weight loss drugs differently and as is the case with most medications, there are side effects associated with Wegovy.



The good news is that these are typically mild and tend to disappear a few weeks into the treatment.



Some of the potential side effects of Wegovy include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating and gas buildup
  • Fatigue
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease


Often, these symptoms occur as your body is adjusting to the drug (hence why they're usually temporary) and there are a few simple ways you can manage them:

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day
  • Avoid high-sugar and high-fat foods
  • Eat small meals regularly
  • Maintain a healthy level of physical activity by going on regular walks

In extreme and very rare cases, Wegovy can result in an allergic reaction with symptoms like swelling of the face and difficulty breathing and swallowing, in which case you should seek immediate emergency medical help.

If you experience ongoing side effects after taking Wegovy, it's important that you speak to your prescriber. They will help you understand why your body is responding this way to the medication and how you can best address the symptoms. In the Juniper programme, you have unlimited consultations with our Care team who can guide you through side effects.

How do I get Wegovy in the UK?

In 2022, the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) approved and recommended Wegovy as a safe option for weight management in the UK.

Since Wegovy is a prescription-only medicine, it isn't available over the counter. Instead, a doctor or pharmacist can prescribe Wegovy, which will be available for purchase through telehealth clinics, pharmacies, and GPs across the UK.

How does Wegovy work in a weight management programme?

Juniper's Weight Reset Programme uses clinically-proven medications, which, when combined with lifestyle changes and health coaching through our platform
