Comparing Weight Loss DrugsWhen it comes to managing weight and blood glucose levels, three medications—SemaglutideMonjouro, and Dulaglutide—have garnered attention. Let us explore their differences:

  1. Semaglutide: (such as Ozempic, Rybelsus tablets, & Wegovy)
    • Weight Loss Effects: Semaglutide has been associated with weight loss. It works by mimicking the action of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. Clinical trials have shown that patients using Ozempic achieved an impressive 26.6% weight loss over 84 weeks1.
    • Mechanism: Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication for obesity treatment. Its active ingredient, Semaglutide, belongs to the class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Semaglutide improves satiety, breaks down fat, and reduces sugar cravings, contributing to weight loss.
    • GLP-1 Receptor Activation: GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the gut in response to food intake. Semaglutide activates GLP-1 receptors in the pancreas and the brain.
    • Effects:
      1. Semaglutide stimulates insulin release from the pancreas. Insulin helps lower blood sugar levels by promoting glucose uptake into cells.
      2. Semaglutide inhibits the release of glucagon (another pancreatic hormone). Glucagon raises blood sugar levels by promoting glucose release from the liver.
      3. Semaglutide slows down stomach emptying after meals, leading to controlled blood sugar levels.
    • Appetite Regulation: By acting on the brain’s appetite center, Semaglutide suppresses appetite and increases feelings of fullness1.
      • Side Effects: Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and constipation2.
      • Comparison: Semaglutide is the active ingredient found in each of these brands. Weight loss results are similar.
      • What do we offer at our clinic? We use an accredited compounding pharmacy, which formulates our Semaglutide using active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) from FDA-registered facilities.
      • What have our patients experienced? Our clients are experiencing successful weight loss and all have felt loss of hunger and food cravings, and fill fuller while eating less food. A small number of clients have experienced mild side effects including nausea and constipation, which are usually temporary.
