Weight loss injections?

The weight loss injections from Saxenda, are in a Pen injection form that is best injected into the stomach area. You attach a Saxenda Pen Needle before dialling up the dose on the Pen and the dial allows you to control the amount of Saxenda you need.

Saxenda Weight Loss Injections are injected under the skin (subcutaneously). You have the choice of injecting your stomach area (abdomen), upper leg (thigh) or upper arm, as instructed by Webmed Pharmacy.

Do not inject into a vein or muscle.


The Saxenda UK Weight Loss Pen


Saxenda injections for weight loss should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.

Saxenda weight loss injections are taken over a 5 week period with an escalating dosage schedule, to reach the maximum therapeutic dosage to help you achieve your maximum weight loss. You then continue on the program until you reach your goal weight with a healthy BMI.

Saxenda weight loss injections, mimics one of your body's natural responses to control your appetite.

Your body naturally produces an appetite hormone known as glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) that helps to regulate your hunger

Saxenda should be used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adult patients with an initial body mass index, BMI of 30 (obese) or 27 or greater (overweight) in the presence of at least one other chronic health condition (e.g. high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol).

Saxenda UK injections are not a miracle cure (though we wish it was).

Saxenda injection pens are a tool which should be used alongside a calorie deficit diet and a doctor approved exercise program.

This is why we'll send you an access code to the Liva Healthcare app when you buy from us, so you can track and monitor your health and lifestyle goals. You'll also have access to a Liva health coach to ask questions within the app.

The recommended Saxenda UK injection dosage when you start is 0.6mg once a day, which increases by 0.6mg each week (2).

A typical injection dosing schedule works like this:

  • Week 1 - 0.6mg injection once daily for 7 days
  • Week 2 - 1.2mg injection once daily for 7 days
  • Week 3 - 1.8mg injection once daily for 7 days
  • Week 4 - 2.4mg injection once daily for 7 days
  • Week 5 - 3.0mg injection once daily ( this is the full dose and you will stay at this dose for as long as you need to.)

When you're starting out, a single Saxenda injection pen will last you 17 days.

If you buy a pack of 5 Saxenda injection pens, then they'll last you 44 days …

… so a 5 Saxenda injection pen pack will take you through to week 6.

Once you are at the optimum injection dosage (3mg/day), the 5 Saxenda injection pen pack should last you 30 days.

What needles do I use?

The Saxenda pen can be used with NovoFine 31G Tip, one of the thinnest and shortest needles available from Novo Nordisk. 31G Tip needles are single-use, disposable injection needles.

We will supply the pen with the needles and a yellow sharps box to dispose of used needles.

When the sharps bin is full, it should be returned to your nearest local Household Waste Recycling Centre where it will be disposed of properly. Only fill the bin up to where it say's "Do not fill above this line". You can find your local council here https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council

You must not put used needles or other sharps in any of your household waste bins.
