FAQs


What is the difference between Wegovy®, Ozempic®, and Compounded Semaglutide?

Ozempic® and Wegovy® are brand name semaglutide-based medications manufactured by Novo Nordisk, while Compounded Semaglutide is developed by our partner compounding pharmacies and features the same active ingredient as Ozempic® and Wegovy® (semaglutide). Another noticeable difference is that Compounded Semaglutide is self-administered via traditional syringes, while Ozempic® and Wegovy® feature a modern injection pen. Both Ozempic® and Wegovy® are currently on the FDA’s Drug Shortage List, but in the last quarter of 2022 alone, providers wrote over 9 million prescriptions for these medications, a number that has only grown since. When the demand for a medication goes up while the available supply goes down, the FDA allows compounding pharmacies to develop medications for the duration of an official shortage to avoid lapse in treatment.


Is Compounded Semaglutide safe?

Compounded Semaglutide is made in an FDA-registered compounding pharmacy. Further, we have ensured that all formulations will only be compounded from semaglutide base, rather than its salt-based counterparts. Our partner pharmacies will continue to uphold our same standards of excellence for this and all other products, so that you can have the best outcomes possible.


Is Compounded Semaglutide made from Semaglutide salts?

Compounded Semaglutide is compounded from base, not Semaglutide salts.


Why has the FDA issued warnings about Compounded Semaglutide?

The FDA’s warning on Compounded Semaglutide specifies that consumers should be wary of 1) semaglutide that is compounded from an unregulated, unlicensed source; 2) semaglutide that is sold without a prescription; and 3) medications compounded with different active ingredients than semaglutide, such as salt forms of semaglutide. Our compounding pharmacies are both FDA regulated and US licensed. Further, they have provided certificates of authenticity certifying that they compound semaglutide from pure semaglutide base, without any trace of any form of semaglutide salt. Our licensed prescribers only recommend Compounded Semaglutide with a prescription, and only after they have deemed it appropriate following a virtual visit. The FDA has also specified that compounded versions of semaglutide should only be prepared to address a shortage of semaglutide; when semaglutide is no longer on the FDA’s Drug Shortage List, we will resume prescribing non-compounded semaglutide as available.


Why is AgelessRx offering Compounded Semaglutide?

With a mission to democratize access to prevention-first and longevity-driven therapies, we’ve heard the frustrations of our patients in light of the national semaglutide shortage. While the shortage is ongoing, we will offer Compounded Semaglutide for an accessible, affordable alternative for those who are qualified for semaglutide.


What will happen when the shortage ends?

Once the shortage is over, we will work closely with our prescribers, pharmacies, and patients to find the best alternative. However, we plan to offer therapies that are no longer in shortage for our patients. In the meantime, we will be sure to update everyone affected as soon as we have any news regarding the shortage.
