Saxenda Weight Loss Injections - Webmed Pharmacy
Self-injecting with Saxenda weight loss injection pens, also known as 'the skinny pen' burst onto the U.K market back in 2017, with exciting results for people who need help with weight loss.
In one study of 3,731 people, 3 out of 5 achieved significant weight loss of 5% or more, and 1 in 3 achieved weight loss of 10% or more (1).
If you need to lose a little weight and you've read about 'the skinny injection pen' then you may have been sucked into hype and need to be very, very careful.
Saxenda injections are unlikely the best option for you if your Body Mass Index (BMI) is less than 27. Speak to your doctor.
If your BMI is over 27 and you have a weight related medical condition OR you're living with obesity (have a BMI over 30) and have tried and failed at calorie controlled diets before… then this weight loss supporting injection may be the right next step for you (2).
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 32G Tip, one of the thinnest and shortest needles available from Novo Nordisk. NovoFine 32G 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 says "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.
