Wegovy is a weight-loss medication that contains the active component semaglutide. Wegovy, like Saxenda (liraglutide), acts in a similar way to improve fullness and decrease appetite. It works by mimicking a hormone that targets brain areas involved with hunger and food intake regulation. This can help you consume less, resulting in weight loss.
The medicine was just approved in the United Kingdom, after its approval in the United States in 2021.
Adults aged 18 to 75 who have a BMI more than 30 can use Wegovy weight loss injections. Those with weight-related health issues, such as diabetes, may be eligible if their BMI is greater than 27.
Once on the maintenance dose, prices range from £189.99 to £299.99 each month.*
