Can I buy Wegovy online?

The Online Clinic will be able to prescribe Wegovy when it is fully launched in the UK. At the moment, Wegovy has been launched on a "controlled and limited" basis and we do not have access to sufficient volumes to enable us to launch this with our patients.

Until Wegovy is available to prescribe more generally, we have other weight loss medications that can be offered to suitable candidates. You can have a free consultation with a doctor online to check what might be appropriate for you.

What is Wegovy?

Wegovy contains a medication called Semaglutide. This is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring hormone on the gut-brain axis known as an incretin. The particular incretin that Semaglutide is replicating is Glucagon Like Peptide (GLP-1).

How does Wegovy work?

The hormone that Wegovy is imitating is released when we eat to regulate blood sugars. Wegovy therefore works by making people feel fuller after eating. By eating smaller portions and feeling fuller for longer periods of time, patients lose weight. It is essential that those prescribed Wegovy ensure that they are eating a healthy diet. Foods high in sugars and sugary drinks should be eliminated.

Is Wegovy effective?

Based on clinical trial data, Wegovy is highly effective. Patients with a BMI of over 30 lost an average of 15% of their body weight over 2 years. This compared with just a 2.4% loss in the placebo control group. Both groups in the clinical trials received support for better lifestyle choices. 69% lost more than 10% body weight compared with 12% of those in the placebo control group achieving the same weight loss.

How to take Wegovy

Wegovy is administered as a subcutaneous injection (just under the skin) via an easy-to-use pre-filled pen. The dose must be titrated, and we will provide specific advice on exactly how to take the medication as part of your prescription.

Are there side effects?

All medications have the potential to cause unwanted side effects. The most common side effects with Wegovy were:

  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhoea

It is important to follow the steady dosage increases recommended over several weeks to reduce the likelihood of side effects.

All side effects should be reported to the prescribing clinic. This medication is listed as a "Black Triangle" medicine in the UK, which mean all side effects reported by the prescribing clinic are monitored by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency.
