SAXENDA 6 MG/ML 3 ML 3 PENS
Saxenda is a brand of the medication liraglutide, which is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It is used for weight management in adults who are overweight or obese, and have a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or greater with at least one weight-related medical condition, or a BMI of 30 or greater without any weight-related medical conditions.
Saxenda is administered subcutaneously (under the skin) once a day using a prefilled, multidose injection pen. The pen is designed to deliver a specific dose of liraglutide, and the dose is gradually increased over several weeks to minimize side effects such as nausea and vomiting.
The Saxenda pen is available in several strengths, and the dosage and frequency of administration may vary depending on the individual’s condition and response to treatment. It is important to follow the dosing instructions carefully and to only use the Saxenda pen as directed by a healthcare professional.
Like all medications, Saxenda can have side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. It can also increase the risk of pancreatitis and thyroid cancer, and should not be used by people with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. Therefore, it should only be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional, and the dosage and frequency should be carefully monitored to minimize the risk of side effects.
