How it works


What is Ozempic®?

Ozempic® is a semaglutide-based medication that is FDA approved to treat type 2 diabetes. Clinical trials have also demonstrated that Ozempic®, as well as semaglutide medications like Wegovy® (also manufactured by Novo Nordisk), can reduce weight, regulate appetite, and lower cardiovascular risk factors.

How does Ozempic® work?

The active ingredient in Ozempic® is semaglutide. Semaglutide falls into a category of medications known as GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs), which imitate the GLP-1 hormone to reduce the amount of glucose delivered into the bloodstream and encourage more insulin production from your pancreas. GLP-1 RAs also act on the digestive system to delay gastric emptying, thereby delaying the release of food from the stomach, and modulate brain activity to suppress appetite.

What’s the difference between Ozempic® and Wegovy®?

Both medications are GLP-1s (glucagon-like receptor agonists) and contain the same active ingredient (semaglutide). Since the two drugs have the same active ingredient, it is fair to ask: is Wegovy® the same as Ozempic®?

Wegovy® and Ozempic® are the same medications, sold under different brand names. The main differences are the amount of semaglutide in each pen (the dosage) and the prescribed use for each, as well as the guided titration schedule: Ozempic® is FDA approved for type 2 diabetes, with a target dosage of 2.0mg, while Wegovy® is FDA approved for weight loss, with a target dosage of 2.4mg.

Ozempic® is considered a safe and reliable alternative for Wegovy®, with many users reporting consistent outcomes. Historically, Ozempic® has also been prescribed when Wegovy® supplies are limited.
