Semaglutide medication belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists - similar to dulaglutide (Trulicity), exenatide (Bydureon, Byetta), liraglutide (Saxenda, Victoza), and lixisenatide (Adlyxin) and related to tirzepatide (Mounjaro, Zepbound). The semaglutide dosage and form of administration is generally contingent on the health needs of the patient and the judgment of the medical provider.
