How Does Saxenda Work?
Saxenda 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. Saxenda is similar to Victoza in that both are glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists using the ingredient liraglutide. Saxenda is also in a similar class of medications as Trulicity. However, Saxenda 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 use is not causing gastrointestinal upset. Saxenda solution is available in pre-filled pens that can deliver Saxenda 0.6 mg, Saxenda 1.2 mg, Saxenda 1.8 mg, Saxenda 2.4 mg or Saxenda 3 mg doses.
