What is the difference between Wegovy and Saxenda?
Although Wegovy and Saxenda share many similarities–such as how they work within the body to encourage weight loss–there are some key differences. The two contain different active ingredients, liraglutide for Saxenda and semaglutide for Wegovy. Compared to Saxenda, Wegovy is longer lasting, meaning you’ll only have to inject once per week instead of daily. This is because semaglutide stays in the body for seven days, whereas liraglutide stays in the body for only twenty-four hours.
Can you get Saxenda on the NHS?
Saxenda is available on the NHS for free in some circumstances. It’s offered to patients through NHS weight management services, such as the tier 3 obesity service. There are, however, certain conditions you have to meet to get Saxenda on prescription. For more information on how you can fund your weight loss treatment, read our helpful guide here.
Do you need a prescription for Saxenda?
As Saxenda is only suitable for certain people, you do need a prescription. Don’t worry, you can buy Saxenda privately by heading to our clinic. By completing a consultation about your health and your family’s medical history, one of our prescribing pharmacists can see if Saxenda is the right weight loss treatment for you.
What are GLP-1 receptor agonists?
GLP-1 receptor agonists are a type of medication used to encourage weight loss; Saxenda (liraglutide) and Wegovy (semaglutide) are both types of GLP-1 receptor agonists. They work by affecting your blood glucose levels, making you feel fuller for longer and suppressing your appetite. In turn, this can make a big difference to your relationship with food, ultimately enabling you to lose weight.
