Mounjaro - Overview

Mounjaro is a medication sometimes prescribed to people with type 2 diabetes that has also shown early promising results in regards to weight loss. People who might need a Mounjaro prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Mounjaro medication (Mounjaro injection) when appropriate to do so.

What Is Mounjaro Used For?

Mounjaro prescription medication contains tirzepatide and has traditionally been prescribed to people who need medication to help improve glycemic control in conjunction with diet and exercise in the setting of diabetes but also has been prescribed off label for weight loss. Mounjaro prescription injections belong to a class of drugs known as combination glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) - similar to semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy) - and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) medications. Dual class medications like Mounjaro are sometimes referred to as twincretin medications. Mounjaro prescription medication is thought to help reduce hunger and digestion, resulting in glucose-lowering effects. Aspects of Mounjaro medication are now being incorporated into experimental drugs such as retatrutide.

Mounjaro for Weight Loss

Some people have heard of using Mounjaro medication for weight loss. The company that makes Mounjaro prescription injections, Eli Lilly, is currently running studies evaluating the use of Mounjaro medication for weight. Interest in this use is due to the fact that the main drug in Mounjaro is thought to help reduce hunger, improve insulin sensitivity, regulate glucagon levels and assist with controlling blood glucose levels. The SURMOUNT-1 study showed that overweight or obese patients who used tirzepatide, the active ingredient in Mounjaro prescription injections, demonstrated substantial weight reduction when compared to placebo. Specifically, most patients in the trial were able to have a 5% weight loss while people who received 10 mg or 15 mg doses demonstrated 20% reduction in body weight. While some adverse reactions occurred, they were primarily limited to gastrointestinal events. In the SURPASS-2 trial, the active ingredient in Mounjaro medication was found to be superior to semaglutide in regards to the mean change in the glycated hemoglobin level with the added effect of weight reduction. Additional benefits were demonstrated in the SURMOUNT-3 and SURMOUNT-4 trials. Participants in the SURMOUNT-3 trial demonstrated an additional 21.1% mean weight loss for a total mean weight loss of 26.6% from study entry over 84 weeks. Participants in the SURMOUNT-4 trial showed a total mean weight loss of 26.0% over 88 weeks. Eli Lilly also started recruitment for a new trial, SURMOUNT-5, which is a phase 3b study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the active ingredient of the drug in comparison to semaglutide in certain adults. While a number of patients using Mounjaro prescription medication have demonstrated significant improvements in regards to weight, Mounjaro injections are under review by the FDA and are not presently approved for this clinical use. Irrespective of any effects in regards to weight loss, Mounjaro injections should be used in conjunction with healthy lifestyle choices.

Mounjaro - Dosage

Mounjaro injections are typically available as single-dose injection pens in a range of doses, including Mounjaro 2.5 mg, 5 mg, 7.5 mg, 10 mg, 12.5 mg and 15 mg. Mounjaro medication is generally prescribed to be started at Mounjaro 2.5 mg injected once per week subcutaneously at any time of day. Depending on the clinical response to Mounjaro injections, some medical providers might increase the prescribed Mounjaro dose to Mounjaro 5 mg after four weeks and in 2.5 mg increments after that to a maximum of Mounjaro 15 mg once weekly. Mounjaro injections can generally be injected subcutaneously with or without meals in the abdomen, upper arm, or thigh, rotating sites with each dose. Patients should consult their medical provider for exact Mounjaro dosing, injection, and use instructions.

Mounjaro - Cost & Savings

Mounjaro medication is considered expensive when paying out of pocket, even when using a Mounjaro prescription discount card, costing approximately $1,023 when paying the list price for Mounjaro medication. Some insurance plans may help cover costs associated with Mounjaro prescription medication when buying Mounjaro medication at the pharmacy and coverage for Mounjaro pen medication evolves over time. People wishing to use insurance to help pay for Mounjaro medication may be required to submit additional information to their insurer. Patients looking for additional help with Mounjaro costs may want to look for a Mounjaro savings program as the manufacturer sometimes has programs that can help reduce the cost of Mounjaro medication.

Can I Buy Mounjaro Online?

For this reason, Mounjaro OTC (over the counter) is not available at this time and one cannot just buy Mounjaro online as the first step to getting Mounjaro prescription medication is consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a Mounjaro injection prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Mounjaro medication injections when appropriate to do so.
