Weekly Jab

The stronger version of the daily!

 

You may have seen the press coverage in February 2021. Ozempic has shown promosing weight loss results in clinical trials, with 75% of participants losing over 10% of their body weight. Semaglutide can currently be prescribed for weight loss in the UK by a medically qualified clinician as a weekly injection.

What is the difference?

There are several key differences between the Daily & Weekly jabs.

  • You inject once a week, rather than daily.

  • The weekly has been shown to be more effective for the long run in clinical studies.

  • Our clients experience less side effects on the weekly.

  • Clients appear to build up less resistance to the weekly.

  • The weekly dose is the same every week, meaning your pen lasts for a minimum of 4 weeks (sometimes longer if we start you off on a lower dose!).

  • Once you've hit a high dose on the daily, the weekly is more cost effective.

How do I use it?

Like the daily, the medication comes as a pre-filled injectable pen. You inject yourself in an area where you can pinch a good amount of meat (aka subcutaeneous fat). This can be the stomach area, the notorious love handle areas, top of the thighs or even the bottom! You use a CLEAN and NEW needle once a week, disposing of the needle after each injection. Your dose is discussed during consultation. The pen always lasts for a minimum of 4 weeks.

What about side effects?

Like any new medication introduced to your body, your body will have to adjust to it. Some people get mild side effects, such as headaches, nausea, dry mouth or tiredness. These side effects are generally mild and are transient - which means they will go after a few days once your body has adjusted.

Some clients experience no side effects, whilst the majority of our own clients experience LESS side effects than the daily jab. During the consultation we go through the side effects & how to deal with them. We also send you aftercare information on how to deal with any potential side effects, along with the Patient Information Leaflet which goes into greater detail.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

During the current initial clinical trials by the manufacturer, the average weight loss has been calculated as between 10lbs and 18lbs. Everyone is different, so your weight loss may be more or less. Try not to compare yourself to others losing weight - focus on yourself, your goals and your progress. - your safety is paramount.

How many pens will I need?

The good news is that the weekly pen lasts for a minimum of 4 weeks, sometimes longer. You will therefore only need ONE pen per month, whereas those on the daily may find themselves using up to 5 pens per month once they reach the maximum dose.

We assess further pens by looking at the following factors to ensure your continuing safety & suitability:

  • Your overall target weight;

  • How well you take to the medication;

  • Your dose; and

  • Your weight at the end of each pen.

Who is suitable?

The weekly jab is suitable for the vast majority of people. Our medically trained clinicians will assess you on an individual basis, taking into account a range of factors, such as:

  • Your BMI

  • Your medical history

  • Your current medication

  • Body measurements

  • Current diet & eating habits

  • Current exercise levels

  • Other methods you have already tried

  • and more

 

The programme is NOT suitable for:

 

  • Under 18's

  • Ladies who are breastfeeding or pregnant or actively trying to get pregnant.

  • Anyone who has had pancreatitis or thyroid tumours

  • Type 1 diabetics or patients taking diabetic medication

 

It is also advisable that you have previously used Saxenda & tolerated it well before moving on to Ozempic, or that you have tried other weight loss techniques. Medication should be a last resort.

Where can I get it?

Please note that this medication is not yet licensed for weight loss. It is a prescription-only medication and should be prescribed by a medically qualified clinician with weight management experience. Your full medical history and circumstances should be taken into account to ensure safety & suitability. We prescribe and dispense only from within the UK.
