Those who do not want to be restricted, tortured in the fitness center, or have health problems may be able to solve their situation in this way. Warning! Only on medical prescription.
How does it work? Saxenda works by acting on receptors in the brain that control your appetite, causing you to seem fuller and not so much hungry. This may help you eat less food and decrease your body weight. How does the brain work? Weight loss commonly starts within 2 weeks and continues for 9 to 12 months on Saxenda treatment.
Your pharmacist will advise exactly how, when and how much Saxenda to take, and you should follow their directions as closely as possible. As a rough guide, you’ll usually start by taking a lower dose of the medication, then gradually build up to the max over the first five weeks of your course. Generally, you’ll start by taking 0.6mg once a day for a week, then increase by 0.6mg each week until you’re taking the maximum dosage of 3.0mg a day. The pen comes preloaded with the solution, and you can easily change the amount you’re taking by using the dial on it.
In clinical trials, the most common side effects observed in patients treated with Saxenda were nausea, low blood sugar, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, headache, decreased appetite, dyspepsia, fatigue, dizziness, and abdominal pain.
