How Does Saxenda Work?

Saxenda prescription medication, containing the ingredient liraglutide, is a treatment used in adults with certain BMI and comorbidity characteristics for weight loss in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

However, Saxenda medication is not indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and should not be used at the same time as other GLP-1 receptor agonists or insulin. Saxenda is thought to work by helping to regulate one's appetite, resulting in weight loss from eating fewer calories. The recommended dose is Saxenda 3 mg daily. Saxenda can be administered at any time of day, irrespective of meals. A dose escalation strategy is often used to ensure that Saxenda prescription medication use is not causing gastrointestinal upset.
