FAQ

When starting a medicine or even considering taking a medicine you are bound to have questions. While your health care provider is always the best source for answers, you may also find some help below.

  • Can I take it at any time of the day?
    Yes, it's recommended that you take it on the same day every week at the most convenient time for you.
  • How quickly can I expect to lose the weight?
    There is no set time for you to begin seeing results because people respond to medicine differently. Ask your health care provider about what a realistic expectation is for you.
  • Am I able to travel with my medicine?
    For sure! When traveling by air it's recommended to carry your pen in your carry-on as it may freeze in the baggage compartment below the plane. Check with your airline to see if they have specific baggage rules.
  • How much weight can I lose?
    Results do vary, but in a 68-week medical study of 1,961 adults living with obesity or excess weight with a related medical problem, adults lost ~35 lbs (or ~15% body weight). People taking placebo lost an average of 6 lbs (or ~2.5% body weight). The average starting weight for both groups was ~232 lbs. Results are from a 68-week medical study of adults with obesity (BMI ≥30) and adults with excess weight (BMI ≥27) who also had weight-related medical problems including high blood pressure or high cholesterol. People with type 2 diabetes were excluded. Both groups were instructed to take the medicine along with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity. 7% of people taking Wegovy™ (92 people) left the medical study due to side effects, compared to 3.1% of people taking placebo (20 people).
  • Can I change the day I take it?
    You can change the day of the week you take it as long as your last dose was given 2 or more days before.
  • What if I know my insurance won't cover the medicine?
    No worries! We have 1 year same as cash financing program, contact us to find out more.
  • How do I dispose of the pen?
    Do not throw the pen away in your household trash. Instead, use an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container or a sturdy household container with a tight-fitting lid, like a heavy-duty plastic container.
  • Do I need to eat before or after taking my medicine?
    That is up to you, you can take your medicine with or without food.
  • What do I do if the liquid in my pen isn't clear?
    Your medicine should always be clear and colorless, if it is not, PLEASE DO NOT USE! Contact us immediately for a replacement.
  • What do I do if I miss a dose?
    Don't worry if you miss a dose and the next scheduled dose is more than 2 days away (48 hours), take the missed dose as soon as possible. If you miss a dose and the next scheduled dose is less than 2 days away, don't administer the dose. Wait until your next scheduled dose. If you miss doses for more than 2 weeks, call your health care provider to talk about how to restart your treatment. You can take your next dose on the regularly scheduled day.
  • Does my insurance cover the weight loss program?
    Check out our Financing page to see which insurances may or may not cover it or directly contact your insurance provider.
