Ozempic - Overview
Ozempic, comprised of the ingredient semaglutide, is a medication used as an agent to help improve glycemic control in some people with diabetes. People who need an Ozempic pen prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe semaglutide when appropriate to do so.
What Is Ozempic?
Many people who use Ozempic wonder how does Ozempic work? Ozempic, similar to liraglutide (Saxenda and Victoza) and Trulicity, belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. WIth a chemical structure highly similar to human GLP-1, semaglutide turns on the GLP-1 receptor which has the longer term effect of increasing insulin secretion and blocking glucagon secretion. And when compared to human GLP-1, Ozempic is somewhat more protected from degradation as it can bind to albumin. In conjunction with diet and exercise, Ozempic is indicated for to help improve glycemic control in adult patients with type II diabetes.
Ozempic - Cost and Coupon
Ozempic is very expensive, costing over $700 for one pen of Ozempic (0.25 mg / 0.5 mg). Ozempic coupons may be available online or through programs associated with the manufacturer. Ozempic is produced in a process involving yeast fermentation and the solution itself is clear and colorless. Packaged to be usable for subcutaneous injection, Ozempic pens are pre-filled with the equivalent of semaglutide 2 mg in a 1.5 mL solution. A typical starting dose is Ozempic 0.25 mg once per week which can be titrated up to Ozempic 1 mg weekly but the regimen ultimately depends on the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Ozempic can be injected into the thigh, upper arm or abdomen subcutaneously and can be taken during or outside of mealtimes. Ozempic can delay emptying of the gastric contents and, as a result, should be used carefully when taken with oral medications.
Can I Buy Ozempic Online?
Ozempic is a prescription medication in the United States, meaning that one needs a prescription from a medical provider before the Ozempic pen can be dispensed by a pharmacy. Ozempic OTC, as a result, is not available and one cannot just buy Ozempic online. People needing a semaglutide prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe semaglutide when appropriate to do so.
Ozempic - Side Effects
Prior to using Ozempic, it is important to discuss possible side effects with one's medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that can result from Ozempic use include abdominal pain, constipation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. People with a family history of thyroid cancer or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 should not use Ozempic. Ozempic and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to Ozempic, semaglutide or similar medications should not use the medication.
