How does Saxenda work?

Saxenda contains the active ingredient: Liraglutide. Lirgalutide is a Glucogon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue. GLP-1 is produced naturally in the human body and Liraglutide is a synthetic version of that natural version with 97% amino acid sequence similarity.

Natural GLP-1 is produced in the body in response to food consumption. In the simplest terms, GLP-1 is a messaging system to tell our bodies that no more food is required. By delivering Liraglutide via a simple injection on a daily basis, that messaging system is activated, and we will feel less desire to eat and we will be satisfied with less food. Reduced food consumption should lead to weight loss.

How is Saxenda administered?

Saxenda (Liraglutide) is a daily injection using a very easy to use, dose-adjusted pen that is pre-filled with the medication. All you have to do is set the dial to the correct dosage and inject under the skin of the abdomen. The starting dosage for Liraglutide is 0.6 mg per day. You inject the medication at the same time each day, so choose a time that will always be convenient for you (we recommend the morning). The maximum dosage is 3.0 mg per day, but you must follow the dosing and titration instructions to minimise the risk of side effects. Full instructions are sent with the medication and we provide a helpful video demonstration for all patients after purchase.

Side effects of Saxenda

All medications have the potential for side effects but Liraglutide is remarkably well tolerated if taken as directed. Some people experience a little nausea to begin with, but most people find that this dissipates with continued use. Other side effects include indigestion and diarrhoea. A full list of side effects is included on the patient information leaflet, which we make available to patients prior to a purchase. Most people do not get any side effects at all (other than minor nausea at dose increases).

Effectiveness of Liraglutide

Clinical studies have shown Liraglutide to be a highly effective and safe weight loss agent, with people losing clinically significant levels of weight at both the 1.8 mg dose and the 3.0 mg dose. In addition, blood pressure was reduced and there was a marked reduction in levels of C-Reactive Protein (an inflammatory marker associated with cardiovascular risk). Around 65% of patients will achieve meaningful weight loss with Saxenda.

    no side effects, slow but steady weight loss

    Very discreet to store and simple to use. Regarding side effects; I experienced some slight reflux and nausea for the first couple of months. This soon subsided and apart from that I have experienced no other symptoms. Prior to using the product I had extremely poor willpower and binged regularly. I am amazed at how this medication is so effective. It absolutely does stop me from constantly craving food. It has enabled me to have a healthy steady weight loss that I am delighted with. I would absolutely recommend to others.

    Excellent service by TheOnlineClinic; prompt, professional and courteous - thank you! Regarding the product, easy to use and definitely effective in curbing my appetite. However, after 3 weeks' use, haven't actually lost any weight yet but am hopeful and optimistic.....!

    Arrived promptly and well packaged next day delivery. Pack of needles and pen plus info brochure and paperwork. Only on day 2 but definitely have immediately felt no hunger pangs. When I get into the car for work I am already thinking what to get to eat. Now I am only cooking dinner in tiny portions. No side effects at all. Maybe I have eaten the wrong food to make this happen but it hasn't so I'm not complaining.

    works pretty good for a while then seems to wear off once body gets used to it.

    Saxenda works well at reducing your appetite, but for me the nausea, heartburn and headaches can be a bit much including the price, once you are on the full dosage. It's excellent for a quick fix, I would use it again to shed the last few pounds, but it's imperative that you make and keep healthy lifestyle changes!

    I took this medication for about 4 months and initially lost about 16 pounds. However, as with many weight loss medications, the effects soon wore off. I decided not to continue due to research I read.

    This product made such a difference in my life. It gave me time to learn to listen to my hunger queues and to be satisfied with a more appropriate portion size. Also, I found my self snacking far less and once I starting loosing weight I found it much easier to exercise.

    I have had excellent results with this product and no significant side effects. It works in a very subtle way to make you feel fuller quicker. This can have the effect of feeling light-headed or unwell because you've not eaten enough. You do need to figure out how best to manage energy dips - mine was to have plenty of fruit to hand that I could snack on. Dinners shrunk by over half and could take me a long time to eat. Frustrating but well worth it in the long run. You will see a good result from the first pack of 5 pens.

    Well this is working for me. Have lost 16 kilos since end of sept 2019. Not as hungry when using this therefore much easier to follow a healthy diet. Only 9 more kilos to go until I’m a healthy weight so I will be ordering again. I was really worried initially about the fact it’s a injection pen but it’s so easy to use and is pain free. If you follow instructions and also follow a healthy diet this will work. Better than anything else I’ve tried. Also you get money off for further orders
