Wegovy is an injectable medication that is prescribed to people with diabetes and other medical conditions related to obesity as a way of managing their weight. The drug is an analog of a naturally occurring hormone that signals your brain that you are full.
It has been found to work well when combined with a diet plan and increased physical activity levels. In fact, it is often prescribed alongside a NHS-funded weight management programme, which provides support and advice on how to change your lifestyle.
If you have been taking Wegovy as prescribed and have seen no weight loss results, it could be due to a number of reasons. One possible reason is that you have deviated from the weekly injection schedule or stopped completely. The drug works best when it is taken on the same day each week, so make sure you follow the instructions provided by your doctor or dietitian.
Another possible reason is that you are not administering the injections correctly. Wegovy needs to be injected under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach, thigh, or upper arm using a pen device and should only be given by a trained healthcare professional. Make sure you understand how to use the pen correctly and ask your healthcare provider for training if needed.
Lastly, it is important to remember that wegovy is not a magic potion and will take time to start working. The drug takes around 5 months to reach its maximum effectiveness, so be patient and stick with your diet and exercise plan.
