Following government health care advice and medication shortages we will not be providing Ozempic weight loss injections until further notice.

Weight Loss Ozempic (Semaglutide)

Ozempic is a weekly Semaglutide injection. It is clinically proven to be effective for weight loss. It does this by suppressing the appetite.

Our Doctors can prescribe the drug Ozempic for weight loss.

Ozempic is a weekly injection containing the active ingredient semaglutide. It was developed to manage blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes where it was recognised that patients lost weight whilst using the medication.

That is because Ozempic:

  1. Suppresses your appetite so you eat less
  2. Increases the time it takes for food to move through your gut and makes you feel fuller for longer

You can only get Ozempic with a prescription and it should be used alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise.

In your appointment your Doctor will assess your suitability for Ozepmic and explain the benefits and potential risks associated with it. They will also explain how to administer the weekly injection.

Important Safety Information

Do not share your Ozempic pen with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them.

Tell your Doctor if you have any other medical conditions, including if you:

  • have or have had problems with your pancreas, kidneys, thyroid or if you have a history of eating disorders.
  • have a history of diabetic retinopathy.
  • are pregnant or breastfeeding or plan to become pregnant or breastfeed. It is not known if Ozempic will harm your unborn baby or passes into your breast milk. You should stop using Ozempic 2 months before you plan to become pregnant.

Tell your health care provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, herbal supplements, and other medicines to treat diabetes, including insulin or sulfonylureas.

Do not use Ozempic if:

  • you or any of your family have ever had MTC or if you have MEN 2.
  • you are allergic to semaglutide or any of the ingredients in Ozempic.

What are the possible side effects of Ozempic?

The most common side effects of Ozempic may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach (abdominal) pain, and constipation. They tend to settle within a couple of weeks and most people tolerate it well.

Ozempic may cause serious side effects, including:

  • inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis). Stop using Ozempic and call your health care provider right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that will not go away, with or without vomiting. You may feel the pain from your abdomen to your back.
  • changes in vision in people with diabetes. Tell your health care provider if you have changes in vision during treatment with Ozempic
  • low blood sugar in people with diabetes (hypoglycaemia). Your risk for getting low blood sugar may be higher if you use Ozempic with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as a sulfonylurea or insulin. Signs and symptoms of low blood sugar may include: dizziness or Iightheadedness, blurred vision, anxiety, irritability or mood changes, sweating, slurred speech, hunger, confusion or drowsiness, shakiness, weakness, headache, fast heartbeat, and feeling jittery.
  • kidney problems. In people who have kidney problems, diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting may cause a loss of fluids (dehydration), which may cause kidney problems to get worse. It is important for you to drink fluids to help reduce your chance of dehydration.
  • serious allergic reactions. Stop using Ozempic and get medical help right away if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat; problems breathing or swallowing; severe rash or itching; fainting or feeling dizzy; or very rapid heartbeat.
  • gallbladder problems. Gallbladder problems have happened in some people who take Ozempic. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get symptoms which may include: pain in your upper stomach (abdomen), fever, yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice), or clay-coloured stools.
