What is wegovy?
Wegovy is a scientifically proven prescription only medicine now available from our prescribing Pharmacist. It contains Semaglutide which acts like naturally-occurring hormones in your body. These hormones act on your gut and brain to make you feel full more quickly and for longer.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects tend to be mild and short-lived while your body adjusts to the medication and dose. For this reason we increase the dose slowly every month. Common side effects mostly affect the gut for the first few weeks, e.g. nausea, diarrhoea, stomach cramps and bloating.
As experts on medicines, our Pharmacist will advise how to manage Wegovy to suit you best or when to stop using the product if it cannot be tolerated.
