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.

FAQs

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 has recently been approved for use in the UK and launched in September 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.

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.

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 [2].

A study from 2021 looked at 1,961 obese and overweight adults who were randomly assigned Wegovy injections or a placebo [2]. The results speak for themselves: after 68 weeks, those taking Wegovy lost an average of 15.3kg, whereas the placebo group lost an average of 2.6kg.

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.

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.

Which Wegovy dose should I take?

The starting dose is 0.25mg and you will gradually increase your dose. The highest available dose is 2.4mg in weekly injections. You'll work closely with your prescriber to determine the appropriate dosage at specific points during your treatment. Wegovy pens titrate up from 0.25mg, 0.5mg, 1.0mg, 1.7mg, and 2.4mg.

How does pricing on Juniper work?

Our Weight Reset Programme includes breakthrough medical treatments delivered to your door, one-to-one dietitian support, access to a structured online course designed to support people on weight-loss medication, unlimited clinical consultations with pharmacists, digital scales, precision weight tracking, and access to our supportive and like-minded Juniper community.

The Weight Reset Programme ranges from £189 to £299 per month depending on which treatment plan is best suited to the patient.

We know Juniper is an investment in your health. But unlike other weight loss methods, our pricing reflects the additional benefits our patients receive – all of which can lead to greater weight loss outcomes over time.

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.
