Should you try Ozempic?

I am frequently asked about Ozempic and Wagovy for weight loss. And understandably.
The idea of getting an injection and losing weight is enticing, but is it too good to be true? These are 3 reasons I strongly recommend people do not try these medications:

  1. These prescriptions are intended to treat Type 2 diabetes or obesity, and have several serious side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. The FDA just released a new warning for both meds about “potential intestinal blockage”. 
  2. A prescription will not teach you about making better food choices; learning new, healthy recipes; or making changes to your lifestyle —such as adding exercise — to improve your overall health, which result in weight loss. 
  3. The weight loss is not permanent. Most people gain back the weight within a year after stopping the medication. Without the injections, people stop feeling full and their cravings return. 

I am not a doctor; this is just my professional recommendation. I am happy to answer any questions on this topic if you want to contact me.
