Frequently Asked Questions


Semaglutide is a medically supervised treatment involving self-administered weekly injections. It acts like natural GLP-1 in the body to help manage weight and blood sugar levels. Semaglutide is used to manage blood sugar in type 2 diabetes and assist in weight loss when paired with a healthy diet and exercise.

Semaglutide slows gastric emptying to help you feel full longer, lowers blood sugar by reducing glucose production, triggers fullness in the brain, and increases insulin production when blood sugar is high.

Compounded semaglutide uses the same active ingredient as Wegovy® and Ozempic®, which is semaglutide. However, the compounding process creates a medication tailored to the individual needs of a patient. Compounded Semaglutide is personalized medication created in a licensed pharmacy, designed to meet individual patient needs when FDA-approved forms are not suitable or available. It's essential to consult with a healthcare provider to understand which form of semaglutide is most appropriate for your individual needs.

Good candidates include those looking to lose weight, those at risk for metabolic syndrome or pre-diabetes, and those struggling with appetite control.

Individuals with a history of pancreatitis or gallbladder disease, pregnant or breastfeeding women (or those planning to become pregnant in the next 6 months, a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (a type of thyroid cancer) or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (a disease that increases the risk of certain types of tumors), and those with specific cancer risks or severe kidney disease should avoid Semaglutide. Those with existing Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes should be seen by their Primary Care Physician.

The consultation includes a review of medical history, medication analysis, allergy assessment, detailed treatment information, and lifestyle evaluation to ensure Semaglutide is the right choice.

Some common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, constipation, decreased appetite, and headache. These usually diminish over time.

No, there is no downtime required after injections, allowing for an immediate return to daily activities.

Expected results include lower blood sugar and blood pressure, weight loss, reduced appetite, and improved cardiovascular health.

If Semaglutide is not suitable, our healthcare provider can discuss alternative medications and treatments for weight loss.
