Saxenda is a prescription weight-loss medication that helps individuals to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It works by reducing hunger and increasing feelings of fullness, making it easier to stick to a lower-calorie diet. Saxenda can also help to improve overall health by reducing the risk of weight-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. This medication is available in the form of an injectable pen and is recommended for use in combination with diet and exercise for best results.

Every pen is accompanied by x20 needles and includes the sharps bin. During checkout, you have the option to order multiple pens, with a maximum of up to x5 pens.


To effectively use Saxenda, begin treatment with a low dose, gradually increasing it over several weeks under your healthcare provider's guidance. Saxenda is administered via self-injection, allowing it to easily fit into your daily routine. Work closely with your healthcare provider to determine the optimal dosage and schedule that aligns with your specific weight management goals. Always follow the tailored advice provided by your healthcare professional.


Saxenda contains liraglutide, an active ingredient primarily used for weight management. It belongs to the GLP-1 receptor agonist class, which works by mimicking the action of the hormone GLP-1 to suppress appetite and increase feelings of fullness. This helps reduce calorie intake and promote weight loss. Saxenda is administered via injection and is specifically approved for weight loss in adults with obesity or weight-related conditions.

Side effects

Saxenda, which uses liraglutide as its active ingredient, primarily intended for weight management, can have several side effects. Common side effects include gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Many people experience these symptoms, especially when starting the treatment, but they often decrease over time.


Thorough Medical History Review: A comprehensive understanding of your medical history is paramount before embarking on Saxenda. Transparency about pre-existing conditions, ongoing treatments, and medications facilitates a holistic evaluation by your healthcare provider. Individuals with a history of thyroid disorders or pancreatitis warrant particular attention and discussion.
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Considerations: Saxenda is contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding. If you're planning a pregnancy or are already pregnant, consultation with your healthcare provider is imperative to ascertain the most appropriate course of action.

Can Saxenda® be used alone for weight loss?

No, Saxenda® is intended to be used alongside a balanced diet and regular exercise program. It is not a standalone solution for weight loss. Your healthcare provider will guide you on adopting a comprehensive approach to weight management.

How does Saxenda work?

Saxenda works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1 to regulate appetite and delay stomach emptying, helping individuals feel full and eat less.

Can Saxenda® be used by pregnant or breastfeeding individuals?

Saxenda® should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding, as its effects on unborn babies and breast milk are not well understood. Discuss your options with your healthcare provider.

Can I use Saxenda® with other medications?

Inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you are taking, including diabetes medications, to ensure there are no interactions or potential complications.

How long will it take to see results with Saxenda®?

Individual results may vary, but it is important to work closely with your healthcare provider to track your progress. Some people may start to see weight loss within a few weeks of starting Saxenda®.
