What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is an MHRA approved medicine for the use of weight loss, with a significant reduction in body weight when using Wegovy over a 68 week period. It contains the same active ingredient (Semaglutide) that is in Ozempic, but whilst Ozempic is only licensed to treat diabetes, Wegovy has been approved for weight loss, it also goes up to higher strengths than Ozempic which stops at 1mg. The active ingredient in Wegovy (Semaglutide), helps you lose weight by making you feel less hungry and more satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It does this by acting like a hormone in your body called GLP-1, which is responsible for regulating your appetite.

How it works

Semaglutide the active ingredient in Wegovy, binds to and activates to glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors in your body. Your body naturally produces GLP-1 that helps regulate your appetite. By mimicing GLP-1 it leads to:

  • Reduced Hunger: It sends signals to your brain that make you feel full, so you don't feel as hungry and eat less.
  • Slows Digestion: It slows down the speed at which food leaves your stomach, which helps you feel full longer after eating.
  • Helps Control Blood Sugar: By helping to control blood sugar levels, semaglutide prevents spikes and crashes that can make you feel hungry.

This will help you feel full sooner, stay full for longer and have fewer cravings for snacks between meals. By helping you feel less hungry and more satisfied with smaller portions, Wegovy supports healthy eating habits and weight loss.

How to use a Wegovy injection pen

  1. Inspect the pen, do not use the pen if the medication is expired, has been frozen, contains particles, appears cloudy, or has an unusual color (Wegovy should be clear and colourless).
  2. Wash your hands and choose and clean your injection site making sure it is dry before injecting. You can inject Wegovy into your: Stomach, thigh or upper arm.
  3. Pull the cap off the pen and get a new pen needle, you should always make sure to select a new needle for each injection to prevent infections and injuries caused by blunt needles.
  4. Push the capped needle onto the pen and twist until tight.
  5. Remove the outer needle shield and keep it to one side for later use.
  6. Remove the inner needle shield and dispose of it.
  7. If it is the first time using your pen check the flow: Slowly turn the dose knob until until you see the flow check symbol which looks like ··-.
  8. Hold your pen with the needle pointing up and tap the pen gently until the air bubbles rise to the top.
  9. Press down on the dose button and hold until [0] is shown in the dose window. Do not inject the prime dose.
  10. Priming removes air from the cartridge and makes sure that your pen is working correctly. Your pen has been primed if a small amount of medicine comes out of the tip of the pen needle.
  11. You are now ready to inject, turn the knob until your dose is shown in the dose window.
  12. Insert the needle into your skin and push down on the dose button until it stops and count slowly to 6.
  13. Make sure [0] is shown in the dose window.
  14. If [0] is shown you can remove the needle. If it is not shown push back down on the button do not redial the dose.
  15. Pull the needle out of your skin. A drop of Wegovy on the needle tip is normal. It will not affect your dose.
  16. Take off the needle and dispose of in your sharps bin and replace the pen cap

If you need any help at all with how to inject, do not hesitate to ask the prescriber.
