What is wegovy?

Wegovy is the first prescription weight-loss medication offering once-weekly dosing.

wegovy™ UK is for adults with obesity (BMI ≥30) or overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems to help them lose weight and keep it off. wegovy™ should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.

How does wegovy work?

Wegovy™ UK works by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and food intake. This can help you eat less, which leads to WEIGHT LOSS. It also delays the time it takes for your stomach to empty and so you feel fuller for longer.

When will I lose weight and how much?
