The Weight-Loss Drugs, Ozempic And Wegovy

Ozempic and Wegovy are the newest additions of drugs to the history of weight-loss drugs. The recent release of Ozempic and Wegovy has also stirred fuss online as people recall the strange history of weight-loss drugs.

Ozempic and Wegovy are just one of the many weight-loss drugs available on the market. Both of them are manufactured by Novo Nordisk. The said company made Ozempic and Wegovy as the newest offering to people with weight problems.

Both Ozempic and Wegovy contain the same active ingredient called semaglutide. The semaglutide in Ozempic and Wegovy mimics a certain hormone that regulates one’s appetite.

According to a published article by Salon, due to the use of social media, weight-loss drugs such as Ozempic and Wegovy are popularized. This phenomenon also drove some weight-loss drug shortages. Both Ozempic and Wegovy are in the form of injections and have side effects such as nausea and diarrhea.
