What needles do I need for wegovy?

The Wegovy weight loss pens come with the needle already attached. You should keep the pen cap on until you are ready to inject. Your pen will no longer be sterile if you store it without the cap, if you pull the pen cap off and put it on again, or if the pen cap is missing. This could lead to an infection.
