If the challenge of diet, fitness, and lifestyle changes required for weight loss have been an obstacle to your success, read on. Successful weight loss is easier than ever before. Recent introduction of injectable medications that drop your calorie intake force your body to live off of stored fat, which melts away until you reach a healthy comfortable weight. Developing healthy eating habits and knowing how to maintain your desired weight is still the best plan for long term health, but these medications have proven extremely effective and safe. The two drugs now FDA approved for weight control are semaglutide (Wegovy, Ozempic, and Rybelsus from Novo Nordisk) and tirzepatide (Zepbound, Mounjaro from Eli Lilly). These are polypeptides that affect gastrointestinal function and metabolism. Appetite reduction is the most powerful weight control action of these medications, but their side effects also limit users’ food intake: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, delayed emptying of the stomach for a feeling of fullness, and others. Because demand for these medications has exceeded manufacturers production capacity, at the present time, compounding pharmacies are making up the difference by producing and shipping semaglutide and tirzepatide to physician offices and clinics for distribution to patients who want the medication but cannot access treatment through their insurance or primary provider. Injections of the medication are once weekly. Recommended prescription schedules for semaglutide and tirzepatide begin with a low dose that increases monthly until sufficiently effective weight loss without disabling side effects. Both effectiveness and adverse effects are dose dependent.
