Start by scheduling an appointment online or in person with our certified medical professionals.
During the appointment, you will complete your medical evaluation with your doctor and discuss your treatment options, including Wegovy®.
If Wegovy® is a good fit for you, the prescription will be sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
Wegovy®, a brand name for the prescription drug Semaglutide, was approved by the FDA in 2021 to assist adults in their weight management journey. It works by mimicking the natural GLP-1 hormone, which regulates blood sugar and delays digestion. By slowing down this process, Wegovy® aids in appetite suppression, potentially leading to weight loss.
Wegovy® could be a suitable weight loss treatment for adults aged 18 and above, who have a BMI of 30+ or 27+ and at least one obesity-related condition such as Type 2 Diabetes, Severe Sleep Apnea, and more. It should be used under the supervision of a medical professional and in combination with a calorie-controlled diet and regular exercise. It may not be appropriate for individuals with certain medical conditions or those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any other GLP-1 medication.
Wegovy® helps suppress appetite, prolongs the feeling of fullness, and assists in insulin regulation, reducing fat storage and promoting fat burn. However, like all medications, Wegovy® comes with potential side effects such as nausea, vomiting, headache, abdominal discomfort, fatigue, and dizziness, among others.
Wegovy® is administered through weekly subcutaneous injections. The medication comes in pre-measured, single-use injector pens, making it easy and secure for use. The cost of Wegovy® varies depending on factors like insurance coverage, dosage, and geographical location. It might require pre-approval before being covered by some insurance plans.
Contact Trifecta Health to book your appointment and start your journey with Wegovy®. We offer a customized program for each patient, ensuring a balanced combination of medication, diet, and exercise.
Please note, Wegovy® has experienced some shortages due to high demand. Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer, is working on ramping up production. Trifecta Health is ready to provide comparable solutions if needed.
You could potentially lose up to 1.3 lbs per week, although results vary depending on diet and exercise.
Effects may be seen within the first 4 weeks of treatment, with full effects noticeable over several months.
Wegovy mimics the action of the GLP-1 hormone, helping suppress appetite and slow down digestion, keeping you feeling full longer.
