      Risk of Thyroid C-Cell Tumors: Similar to other drugs in its class, Ozempic carries a warning for the potential development of medullary thyroid cancer and multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN-2). This warning is based on findings from animal studies. It's not known if these effects occur in humans, so people with a personal or family history of these conditions should avoid using Ozempic​​.

      Risk of Intestinal Blockage (Ileus): Recently, the FDA added a warning to Ozempic's label about the potential risk of blocked intestines (ileus). This side effect has also been listed for similar medications such as Wegovy and Mounjaro. It's important to note that these reactions are based on voluntary reports, so their frequency and direct causal relationship to the drug are not always clear​​.

      Patients considering Ozempic should discuss these risks with their healthcare provider to make an informed decision about their treatment. Additionally, patients should be aware of symptoms related to these conditions and report any concerns to their healthcare provider immediately.

      What is Ozempic?

      The prevalence rate of obese and overweight individuals in the US is around 40%. By 2030, the weight loss industry will account for an estimated $334 billion in revenue collection due to increased weight management concerns.

      Weight management becomes distressing when you hit a BMI of above 25. BMI compares the amount of body fat to your weight and height, with a higher BMI putting you at risk of developing heart-related illnesses like stroke.

      Such fatal risks have led to increased diet pens among overweight and obese individuals. Using Ozempic for weight loss and other weight loss products witnessed a surge in demand. These drugs are used to treat type 2 diabetes, reduce the risk of heart disease, and manage obesity under the guidelines of a certified physician. 

      Semaglutide (a prescription medicine) belongs to the group of GLP-1 agonist drugs. These drugs are used to treat type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and obesity under the guidelines of a certified physician. The active ingredient of these drugs is semaglutide, the main and active ingredient of the Ozempic brand.

      This drug is FDA-approved to treat patients with type 2 diabetes and to lower the risk of cardiovascular complications among people with heart diseases and type 2 diabetes. Recently, however, the Ozempic has been used off-label for weight management.

      Ozempic Cost & Coupons

      Ozempic pens are not cheap in the United States. It is common for healthcare insurers to deny coverage for Ozempic for weight loss. Most Americans must pay for Ozempic out of pocket, costing upwards of $ 1,000 monthly.

      Who shouldn’t use Ozempic?

      People with certain medical conditions or a medical history of these conditions should avoid using Ozempic due to the risk of experiencing serious complications including death. Ozempic should be used with caution by individuals with a history of:

      • An allergy to semaglutide or the ingredients of Ozempic
      • Diabetic retinopathy
      • If you’ve experienced kidney or pancreas problems
      • If you’re pregnant, plan to get pregnant, or are breast-feeding
      • If you have a family history of MTC or MEN 2

      Please always inform your doctor of your medical history and family before you start using Ozempic for diabetes or weight loss. They’ll help you find alternative medications to manage weight loss and blood sugar control without risking your health and life.

      How does Ozempic work?

      Prescription Ozempic mimics a naturally occurring GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide -1) hormone. The hormone’s function is to regulate the way glucose (energy) from the foods you eat is used by your body. Ozempic induces insulin secretion from the pancreas, which helps the body utilize and store glucose correctly.

      Many type 2 diabetes patients do not secrete sufficient insulin, hence the increased sugar levels in the blood. Ozempic can be a great treatment option in such scenarios as it helps balance blood glucose.

      Additionally, Ozempic interferes with the normal functioning of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus processes most of your feelings, like hunger, pain, and pleasure. Ozempic interferes with its functionality, promoting satiety, resulting in less food intake and weight loss.

      Semaglutide also slows down stomach emptying, which can help you feel fller longer. When you combine this effect of Semaglutide with lifestyle changes such as eating healthy and regular exercise, effective weight management may become more within reach. 

      Drug Interactions With Ozempic

      A drug interaction occurs when a drug reacts with another drug, food, supplement, or beverage. Drug interactions may affect a drug’s efficacy and safety. So, it’s essential to be informed of possible drug interactions with Ozempic to reduce hazards. Before using Ozempic, let your doctor know all the drugs, vitamins, and home-grown medications you’re using so they can advise on the proper treatment.

      Here are some frequent Ozempic interactions:

      Insulin and Sulfonylureas

      When utilized with insulin or sulfonylureas, Ozempic can raise the chance of hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood sugar). To prevent this, your physician will carefully monitor your blood glucose readings and help you make dosage adjustments when needed. 

      Verbal Steroids

      When utilized with Ozempic, a few oral steroids may alter blood glucose regulation. If you’re on steroids, talk to your doctor before using the Ozempic pen.

      Certain Blood Weight Medicines

      A few blood presuure medications, such as hydrochlorothiazide, may interact with Ozempic. 

      Gastrointestinal Drugs

      Ozempic may delay stomach emptying. Talk to your doctor if you’re taking any medicines that affect stomach function.

      How to Use Ozempic Pens

      Ozempic is administered once weekly. Lower doses are usually used initially, and the dose is increased slowly over time to reduce the risk of gastrointestinal side effects like nausea and upset stomach. You can inject yourself on your thighs, upper arm, or stomach. Constantly rotate your injections between these places to avoid the formation of skin rashes. Select a different area from your last injection if you inject the same place.

      Sticking to the following steps for using Ozempic pens would be best for me.

      • First, confirm that your pen has the Ozempic label and that the liquid is clear and has no smell
      • Remove the paper tab and screw in your new needle (use a different needle for each injection)
      • Set the dose counter to 0 by pressing and holding the dose button. You’ll see a drop at the needle tip.
      • Select your dose amount as per your prescription (it can be 0.25mg, 0.5 mg, or 1mg)
      • Inject yourself with the Ozempic dose. When pressing the dose button, wait for the dose counter to 0, then count to 6 before removing the needle.
      • After the injection, dispose of your needle in an air-tight sharps container.
      • Always return your pen cap once you’re done using the Ozempic pen

      Ozempic pens can be stored in the refrigerator at 36F to 46F. Don’t freeze the pens or keep them near heat or light. They shouldn’t be placed near the cooling element, even in the refrigerator.

      The Ozempic pen you buy from Canada will be shipped with temperature-sensitive packaging to ensure it remains intact while it travels to your home. 

      Pay close attention to the dose you are selecting on the pen, as the pens can provide multiple strengths.

      Strengths and Dosages of Ozempic Pens

      Ozempic pens are available in various quantities depending on your dosage level. The starter pack is a 2 mg/1.5 ml pen for patients at 0.25mg or 0.5mg weekly dose. Though the dosages seem minute, you should stick to a weekly dose as frequent injections may result in serious side effects, like pancreatitis.

      The next pen is a 4mg/3ml Ozempic pen for the 1.0 mg weekly dose. Then, you max out your dosage with the 8 mg/3ml pen at a weekly dose of 2mg of semaglutide.

      Your body may take a few weeks to adjust to each new dose of Ozempic. Increasing the dose slowly lowers your risk of side effects. A pen should last you four weeks before your dosage is adjusted. Your doctor will adjust your dosage depending on your response to the medication, including monitoring blood sugar and A1C levels.

      However, you can maintain your weekly dosage for an extended period if you get your desired outcome. When studied, about half of the participants taking a 4 mg dose of semaglutide (found in Wegovy) lost 15% or more of their initial body weight. The maximum dose of 2 mg of semaglutide found in Ozempic may produce similar results for some individuals.

      Ozempic in the Media

      Recently, Ozempic has gained attention for its potential to help manage not only diabetes but also supoort weight loss. Some celebrities like Remi Bader, Chelsea Handler, and Elon Musk have even talked about Ozempic and admitted to using it. However, some people using Ozempic for weight loss and to treat diabetes have reported some strange side effects.

      What is Ozempic Butt?

      The term “Ozempic Butt” refers to a disorder where people experience changes in the fat distribution around their buttocks. According to publications like the New York Times and Forbes, some patients have reported less fat in this location, while others say they have more.

      What is Ozempic Finger?

      “Ozempic Finger” refers to a phenomenon where patients experience shrinking of their fingers and wrists. While taking Ozempic, it has been suggested that fingers may get thinner or that the sensation in the fingertips may change. Further investigation is being done to determine the underlying causes of this unusual side effect.

      What is Ozempic Face?

      Ozempic Face” refers to changes in facial features brought about by Ozempic use. While some people claim that their skin tone has improved as a result, others have noticed alterations in the distribution of face fat. Ozempic’s effects on the subcutaneous fat layers have been questioned in light of these alterations in facial appearance.

      Although not all Ozempic users have these adverse effects, they do show the complexity of how drugs like Semaglutide can interact with physiology. Since people’s reactions to drugs can contrast, you should talk to your doctor if you notice any strange side effects after using Ozempic.

      Alternatives of Ozempic

      Ozempic is perhaps the most well-known of the GLP agonists, but there are also several similar options available on the market. Some examples include:

      • Rybelsus: Oral semaglutide has another moniker, Rybelsus, which is prescribed for type 2 diabetes management just like Ozempic.
      • Wegovy: Approved for weight management, Wegovy uses the brand name of a semaglutide medication with a higher dosage.
      • Trulicity: Trulicity is a different medication for managing type 2 diabetes. The active ingredient in the same class as semaglutide is called dulaglutide.
      • Bydureon: Bydureon, a drug in the same class as exenatide and other GLP-1 receptor agonists, is another option for treating diabetes.

      Before prescribing any alternative to Ozempic, your doctor will consider several factors, such as your needs, medical history, and personal preferences.
