Medication is one of the most impactful aspects of the weight loss therapy program at Botany Wellness because it can help reduce your appetite and promotes fast weight loss.
Semaglutide, taken via injections you administer yourself, is the generic name for two medications, Ozempic® and Wegovy®. These injections have recently gained a lot of attention because they’re helping many people lose weight rapidly, even if they’ve never succeeded with other weight loss approaches.
Ozempic and Wegovy are the same drug, prescribed for different purposes.
But, the most famous effect of Ozempic is weight loss. Although the drug wasn’t developed for that purpose, many people with diabetes experience rapid weight loss on the drug.
This happens because semaglutide imitates the action of a hormone, GLP-1, that you release after eating. GLP-1 slows the digestion of food, which in turn keeps you full for longer and reduces hunger pangs.
Wegovy works just like Ozempic but comes in different doses, and its max dose is higher than that of Ozempic.
