If you are changing from Wegovy/Ozempic to Mounjaro, you should wait at least 4 weeks before starting Mounjaro.

This is to ensure that you don’t have both medications in your system at once which may lead to unpleasant side-effects.

What is Mounjaro KwikPen?

Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) is used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus by reducing the level of sugar in the body only when the levels of sugar are high.

Mounjaro is also used for adults living with obesity (BMI ≥30) or overweight (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart problems to help them lose weight and keep it off. It should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.

How does Mounjaro work?

The active ingredient in Mounjaro is called tirzepatide.

It’s the First and Only licensed glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist in the UK. It’s dual action causes you to feel less hungry and prevent cravings. It also slows down the emptying of the stomach to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

The action of GIP potentiates the action of the GLP-1 resulting in a much greater weight loss.

Mounjaro has been shown to have greater weight loss potential than medicines that work on GLP-1 alone eg Saxenda and Wegovy.

Are there any side-effects from Mounjaro?

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Very common ones are gastrointestinal such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and constipation. These are mainly seen with dose increases, and lessen as your body gets used to the medication.

Other common side effects may be fatigue, feeling lightheaded, excess wind (flatulence), gallstones, gastroesophageal reflux, injection site reactions, hair loss and hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. However, we only supply those whose type 2 diabetes is controlled by diet alone.

Serious side-effects can occur rarely and include:-

Pancreatitis where you may experience severe abdominal pain, with or without persistent vomiting, and you would need to get medical help as soon as possible.

Anaphylaxis where you may experience difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips or tongue and difficulty swallowing. This is a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) that requires you to go to A&E immediately.

Are there any contraindications?

  • As there is limited therapeutic experience in patients 85 years of age or over, use in these patients is not recommended

  • Hypersensitivity to Tirzepatide or to any of the excipients listed in the patient information leaflet.

  • This medicine is not recommended if you have a severe stomach or gut problem which results in delayed stomach emptying (called gastroparesis), or if you have an inflammatory bowel disease.

  • Tirzepatide should be used with caution in patients with thyroid disease.

  • you have a problem with your eyes (diabetic retinopathy or macular oedema)

  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding:- This medicine should not be used during pregnancy, as it is not known if it may affect your unborn child. Therefore, it is recommended to use contraception while using this medicine. If you wish to become pregnant, you should stop using this medicine at least one month in advance. If you become or are pregnant, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby when using this medicine, talk to your doctor straight away, as your treatment will need to be stopped.

  • Oral contraceptives :-There is limited information about the effect of tirzepatide on the pharmacokinetics and efficacy of oral contraceptives in women with obesity or overweight. Since reduced efficacy of oral contraceptives cannot be excluded, it is advised switching to a non-oral contraceptive method, or add a barrier method of contraception upon initiating tirzepatide therapy (for 4 weeks), or after each dose escalation (for 4 weeks).
