John boy Says:

Hi I have been on ozempic for 4 months I went up from .5 to 1.0 last week. I tried the increase prior about month ago I went up to 1.0 I had to much side effects the first time I tried to tolerate 1.0 for 2 weeks experience stomach cramps, gas, and diarrhea went back down .5 for several weeks was okay. This week the second time trying 1.0 again I have stomach cramps and gassy stomach a little nausea. I thought about this new week due to take my next dose trying one more week on 1.0 I don’t know if I can handle I was doing ok on .5 and lost about 50lbs my concern is gaining weight back if not going up to 1.0 What do you suggest I do?

Those can be normal side effects of Ozempic, as reported by the FDA, you may also experience headache, dizziness, and tiredness.

Ref: Medline Plus Ozempic

Have you discussed these side effects with your doctor? There may be something you can do to help mitigate them, while your body adjusts to the higher dose.

Are you on any other medications?

Yes I’m on mental health meds for bipolar anxiety depression and insomnia. bupropion, Aripiprozole, busparone, atenolol, emprozole, simvatstatin. I have been on all these meds a very long period of time and don’t intend on messing with them. I took my second dose of 1.0 Ozempic today so far it’s okay but I usually don’t experience anything till the second and third day on the dose
