Frequently Asked Questions

What is compounded semaglutide?

Semaglutide is the same active ingredient in Ozempic® and Wegovy®.

Which pharmacies do you use?

525 Alexandria Pike
Southgate, KY 41071

Our partnering pharmacies do not coordinate refills or help to resolve shipping issues. You must contact Health Renew directly for assistance. Medications are dispensed only after a patient has undergone an online consultation with one of our licensed healthcare providers. The decision to prescribe a medication is at the sole discretion of the healthcare provider based on the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and specific health needs.

‍During the consultation, the healthcare provider may recommend a medication based on the evaluation of the information provided by the patient through our intake process. It is important to note that the healthcare provider may prescribe a medication that differs from the patient’s initial request or expectation, based on their professional judgment and the patient’s best health interests.

Patients have the option to request the use of a specific pharmacy from an approved list for the dispensation of their prescribed medications. If you have a preference for a particular pharmacy, please inform us by contacting Health Renew Support at care@healthrenew.com

How does semaglutide work?
Semaglutide is a medication that mimics the hormone GLP-1 to regulate blood sugar levels. It works by binding to GLP-1 receptors in the body, which stimulates insulin secretion, decreases glucagon secretion, and slows down stomach emptying. These effects lead to lower blood sugar levels and reduced appetite, which can result in weight loss. Semaglutide is administered once a week via subcutaneous injection and is used in combination with diet and exercise. It is also approved for use as a weight loss medication under the brand name Wegovy.
Is it ok to take semaglutide strictly for weight loss?

Yes, semaglutide is a medication that mimics the hormone GLP-1 to regulate blood sugar levels. It works by binding to GLP-1 receptors in the body, which stimulates insulin secretion, decreases glucagon secretion, and slows down stomach emptying. These effects lead to lower blood sugar levels and reduced appetite, which can result in weight loss. However, it is important to note that semaglutide is not a weight loss “magic pill” and should be used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise to achieve sustainable weight loss. Semaglutide can help to reduce appetite and promote feelings of fullness, which can lead to calorie reduction and weight loss. If you are interested in using semaglutide for weight loss, it is important to discuss the potential benefits and risks with your healthcare provider to determine if it is a safe and appropriate option for you.

Are there over-the-counter options that work as good as semaglutide?

No, there are no over-the-counter options that work as well as semaglutide for promoting weight loss. Semaglutide is a prescription medication that belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which have been shown in clinical studies to be effective in lowering blood sugar levels and promoting weight loss. Over-the-counter supplements or products that claim to have similar effects are not regulated by the FDA and may not be safe or effective. It is important to talk to your healthcare provider about any supplements or medications you are considering taking to manage your diabetes or promote weight loss.

Does semaglutide have any side effects?
Like any medication, semaglutide can cause side effects. Some common side effects of semaglutide include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal pain, headache, decreased appetite, and indigestion. These side effects are usually mild to moderate in severity and tend to go away over time as the body adjusts to the medication.

Less common but more serious side effects of semaglutide can include pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), kidney problems, allergic reactions, and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). If you experience any symptoms of these serious side effects, such as severe stomach pain, difficulty breathing, or dizziness, seek medical attention immediately.

It is important to talk to your DudeMeds healthcare provider about any side effects you experience while taking semaglutide, as they can help to determine if the benefits of the medication outweigh the risks. They may also be able to suggest ways to manage any side effects you experience.

How quick will I see results with my weight loss?

Semaglutide begins to lower blood sugar levels shortly after administration, with the maximum effect typically occurring within 2 to 4 hours. However, the full effects of semaglutide on blood sugar control may take several weeks to become apparent, as the medication needs time to reach steady-state levels in the body. In clinical studies, significant improvements in blood sugar control were seen after 8 to 16 weeks of treatment with semaglutide. It is important to note that the exact timing and degree of semaglutide’s effects can vary depending on individual factors such as the dose, severity of diabetes, and other medications being taken.

Are there any drug interactions I should be concerned about?

Semaglutide can interact with other medications, which can affect how it works or increase the risk of side effects. Some of the most common drug interactions with semaglutide include:

  1. Insulin: Semaglutide can increase the risk of hypoglycemia when used in combination with insulin or insulin secretagogues (such as sulfonylureas).
  2. Oral medications for type 2 diabetes: Semaglutide can also increase the risk of hypoglycemia when used in combination with certain oral medications for type 2 diabetes, such as metformin, sulfonylureas, and thiazolidinediones.
  3. Warfarin: Semaglutide may increase the risk of bleeding when used in combination with warfarin or other anticoagulant medications.
  4. Other medications: Semaglutide can also interact with other medications, such as antibiotics, antidepressants, and medications for high blood pressure or cholesterol.

It is important to inform your DudeMeds healthcare provider about all medications and supplements you are taking before starting semaglutide, as they can help to identify any potential drug interactions and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

How often do I need to take semaglutide?

Semaglutide is administered once a week via subcutaneous injection, typically in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. The exact dosing schedule and injection site may vary depending on individual factors such as the dose prescribed, the severity of diabetes or obesity being treated, and the patient’s preference. It is important to follow the dosing instructions provided by your healthcare provider and to use semaglutide exactly as prescribed. Semaglutide is available as a pre-filled pen or as a single-dose vial, and your healthcare provider can show you how to administer the medication safely and effectively at home.

Is semaglutide safe for long term use?
Semaglutide has been shown to be safe and effective for long-term use in treating both type 2 diabetes and obesity. In clinical trials, patients have taken semaglutide for up to 2 years with sustained benefits in blood sugar control and weight loss. Long-term safety data on semaglutide is also available from post-marketing surveillance and real-world studies.

However, as with any medication, there are potential risks associated with long-term use of semaglutide. For example, there is a small risk of developing pancreatitis, a potentially serious inflammation of the pancreas, while taking semaglutide. There may also be other risks associated with long-term use that are not yet fully understood.

If you are taking semaglutide for type 2 diabetes or obesity, it is important to discuss the potential benefits and risks of long-term use with your healthcare provider. They can help you determine if semaglutide is a safe and appropriate treatment option for you, and monitor you for any potential side effects or complications.

Is semaglutide FDA approved?

The medication you may be prescribed is a compounded medication and is not associated with the products Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus which are FDA-approved, whereas semaglutide, the active ingredient of those medications, is not FDA approved in its compound form.

Medically approved clients are typically offered the compound prescription (Semaglutide / Cyanocobalamin or Semaglutide / B6) for subcutaneous injections.
