Semaglutide injections 1x week when used in conjuction with a healthy diet and exercise has a very successful outcome with weight loss and lowering high blood pressure. Our patients have seen anywhere from 2-4 lbs lost in one week. It works by supressing your appetite. The side effects are minimal, especially if you follow the Nurse Practitioner’s and Wellness Coach instructions carefully. There is a starting dose to allow the medicine to build in your system, followed by incremental dosing during the weight loss journey. This subcutaneous injection (injected in fatty tissue just like an insulin injection ) is not painful and very easy to self-administer.

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Usually can be controlled or avoided, but some patients may not tolerat it at all.

When you schedule a consult with our Wellness Coach, they will make sure you are the appropriate candidate for this medication. Then the Nurse Practitioner will meet with you to go over any other conerns and your prescription will be ordered.
