*In clinical trials studying Saxenda and Wegovy for obesity (BMI ≥30) and overweight (BMI ≥27) with at least one weight-related condition, non-diabetics who completed the trials lost an average of 9% and 15% of their body weight, respectively, when paired with diet and exercise (compared to 3.5% and 2.4% on diet and exercise alone). Some patients may start on Saxenda and then switch to Wegovy if accessible and clinically appropriate.
Safety info: GLP-1 medications are used to treat obesity or overweight (with weight-related problems), along with diet and exercise. They may have serious side effects, including possible thyroid tumors. Do not use if you or your family have a history of a type of thyroid cancer called MTC or MEN 2.

"Is using medication to lose weight cheating?"
Dr. Steve Silvestro, Ro
Which GLP-1 is right for you?
Semaglutide injection was first approved under the brand name Ozempic in 2017 as a treatment for type 2 diabetes. In 2021, the FDA approved the drug at a different dosage under the brand name Wegovy as a weight loss medication. Doctors often, using their medical judgment and discretion, prescribe both for weight loss. Liraglutide injection was FDA approved for weight loss in 2014 under the brand name Saxenda.
All three medications are GLP-1s, but there are some key differences between them.

What is Wegovy?
Wegovy is a brand-name version of the generic medication semaglutide, which is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist. Instead of that tongue-twister of a name, we call these medications “GLP-1s” for short. Wegovy is FDA-approved and clinically proven to help with weight loss. How? It acts like a natural hormone your body uses to regulate blood sugar and appetite—key steps in resetting your biological set point to help you maintain a new, lower weight. In fact, in the pivotal clinical trial people who combined Wegovy with lifestyle changes lost an average of 9% of their body weight after 20 weeks, and 14.9% after 68 weeks. Learn more about Wegovy and weight loss.
How does Wegovy work?
Wegovy works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which slows digestion and helps your brain regulate appetite by reducing hunger sensations. As your digestion slows, you may feel full longer and therefore eat less, which can lead to weight loss.
What is Wegovy’s dosing?
Wegovy dosing starts out low, then gradually increases over the first few months until a steady dose is reached. If prescribed, your Ro-affiliated provider will work with you to find the schedule and dosing that’s right for you. As an example, your provider may start you out on the lowest dose, 0.25 mg injected once weekly for the first month and slowly ramp you up to the maximum dose of 2.4 mg once weekly over the course of several months. This will depend upon your specific situation and your provider’s guidance.
How do you take Wegovy?
Wegovy comes in a prefilled injection pen. If prescribed, you (or someone in your household) will administer the injection under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or arm once a week. While a routine injection may sound intimidating, the Wegovy pen uses a tiny needle designed to minimize discomfort. You’ll also receive clear instructions on using the injection pen, and your Ro-affiliated provider can offer additional advice.
How much weight can I expect to lose with GLP-1s?
In clinical trials, patients lost 15% of their body weight after 1 year, on average. This is based on the average weight loss in the three 68-week clinical trials of patients without diabetes who reached and maintained a dose of 2.4 mg/week of GLP-1 treatment, along with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
How quickly do people lose weight with Wegovy?
In the STEP 4 clinical trial, people who combined Wegovy with a healthy diet and exercise lost an average of over 4% of their body weight by eight weeks. Those who reached a steady dose of 2.4 mg per week lost an average of 10.6% of their body weight in the first 20 weeks of treatment—and over 17% of their body weight within 68 weeks. Everyone responds to Wegovy differently, and if prescribed, your Ro-affiliated provider will work with you to get the best results for you. See if Wegovy is right for you here.
