Why use this medication?
Saxenda has been proven to cause significant weight loss when used alongside both diet and exercise. In a 56-week study with patients having a BMI of 38, Saxenda was able to help patients lose an average of 17.3lbs compared to 7lbs with a placebo. Additionally, the same study also demonstrated that there is greater rate of change in weight reduction in patients taking Saxenda compared to a placebo. This drug can be conveniently self-injected either at home or on the go.
Saxenda works differently than most weight loss medications. It activates areas of the brain that are responsible for regulating appetite, thus lowering appetite and leading to a reduction in calorie intake and the resulting weight loss. This medication is the first and only FDA-approved weight loss medication available in a pen.Click to read more Click to read less
