Total Appetite Loss & Serious Indigestion on Ozempic

Hi. I started Ozempic 3 weeks ago. Recently I have become constipated but having diarrhea. (Yes that is possible) I have also had horrible indigestion and a lot of acid sitting in my stomach. I have absolutely no appetite. I am dehydrated. When I drink anything it makes me feel like I ate a 20oz steak and baked potato. And then I feel super nauseous. I have digestive issues as is. Could the Ozempic be causing this or is it due to my IBS or something with my digestive track? I have had the same thing happen before I was taking Ozempic but not with the total loss of appetite & total fullness feeling. ## I'm glad you wrote in about this as I too am on Ozempic, once week for diabetes. I'd been wondering why I suddenly had no appetite, had indigestion & Despite already being ...

Ozempic cost from US vs Canada

I'm not sure if anyone else is having trouble paying for their Ozempic in the US. My health insurance decided to eliminate it from my coverage last month and my pharmacy in Flagstaff was quoting me $800+. Saw some chatter about filling my prescription from Canada and I decided to give it a try with insulin outlet. I thought I would have trouble but it saved a lot of money. If anyone is having the same problem, I hope this info helps.

Ozempic wears off half way through the week

Does anyone else feel like your appetite comes back half way through the week on Ozempic .5? I’m wondering about trying .25 twice per week…! ## Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? It would be best to have their approval, before making any changes to your dosing regimen. Are you specifically using it for weight loss, or are you also diabetic? Ref: Ozempic Information The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including administration site reaction, dizziness, nausea, and heartburn. ## I started on Ozempic about 50 days ago and am down about 30 lbs. I split the dose into two shots on Tuesday and Friday. It comes to 36 clicks each on the pen. Appetite is well controlled. Tho only occasional side effect I have is not from the med itself but when I overeat in m...

Diet while taking Wegovy

Hello. My Dr. prescribed Wegovy today. I have not started it yet as I'm still waiting on insurance approval. I was wondering if anyone's Dr. told them a specific diet plan to follow? I have been eating extremely low carb for almost 2 years with some success in weight loss but not consistent. While talking to my Dr. she said to keep following that low carb diet. However, that doesn't make much sense to me knowing that she wants me to work out daily. I feel I need more substance than 50 carbs a day to be able to work out. Am I wrong? Even when I asked about adding back healthy carbs such as beans potatoes etc she advised against it. Anyone have their own experiences in this department? ## It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions, and keep her updated, so you ...

DBX-13 Details

What is this drug, or a medical book of cures? ## Hi Ron, Based on my research, DBX-13 is a comprised of 11 natural ingredients that are each shown to fight diabetes (by balancing blood sugar levels) without many of the harsh side effects of prescription medications. The strange part however, is that I can't find much information on it other than what is mentioned above; not even a list of ingredients. It makes me wonder if it's really legitimate to be honest. Where did you first hear about it? ## I seen it on a video with Jenny Thompson Director of Health Sciences Institute. ## DBX 13 is touted in one of those "we can cure anything" advertising circulars put out by a group called "Health Sciences Institute". Always wondered, if their "cures" are so great...

Doctor starting me on Jardiance 25mg instead of 10mg

I keep reading that you should start at the 10mg dosage but my doctor prescribed me the 25mg to start. Is this normal and ok? Right now I am taking 2.5mg glipizide and my fasting blood sugars are running around 100-120. She also didn't tell me if I should stop glipizide when starting Jardiance. ## Usually, Jardiance is taken along with your other diabetes medication, but you should double check with your doctor to be sure. I'd suggest also consulting them to be sure about the dosage, since you are correct, it is usually started at the 10mg dosage. Ref: Jardiance.com It's typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, hypoglycemia, increased urination, and dehydration. Are you on any other medications?

I was started on 10 mg of Jardiance 1 week ago. Began experimenting severe lower back and abdominal pain and cramping within 24 hours. Stopped taking drug after 2 doses but pain has only minimally stopped. Have been to emergency department and have no uti, tumour or kidney failure, but have completely lost sensation of knowing when to urinate!

pink round pill IG 207

round in shape, pink in color,and the letters on one side are IG. And on the other side the numbers 207. This is a pill or maybe it could be a tablet i'm not sure. ## Is it possible that the markings are IG 203? I located a pill with IG on one side and it's scored in the middle. The other side of the pill has 203, it is also round and pink. If this sounds like your pill it's Glimepiride 1mg, which is a medium-to-long acting sulfonylurea anti-diabetic drug.

How many doses are actually in the Ozempic pen?

I find there is a lot of medication still in the pen after the 4th dose. Do y’all continue to use the same pen until it’s much more empty? Seems like it would be a waste to not. ## The Ozempic information website says that you can store it up to 56 days, after first opening the pen, then you should dispose of it, even if there is some left. Ref: Ozempic Pen Information However, the number of doses per pen will depend on your individual dose. How much are you supposed to be using? Were you instructed to discard each pen after 4 uses? Usually, such pens are used until they expire, which would be 56 days once opened, or until they are empty. The FDA lists the typical Ozempic side effects as possibly including administration site reaction, hypoglycemia, headache, diarrhea, and n...

Achiness due to Wegovy?

Has anyone experienced achiness from taking Wegovy? About one month ago as my dose increased to 1.0, I started to notice and overall achiness. I assumed I was coming down with a virus but one month later it persists. Just wanting to know if anyone else is feeling this or whether I need to see my healthcare provider more urgently. ## The FDA doesn't list this as a known side effect of Wegovy, but we are all different, so not everyone experiences the same reactions to any given medication. The typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence, diarrhea, and bloating. Ref: Medscape Wegovy Are you on any other medications? When it comes to such issues, it is always best to consult your doctor to be sure of what's going on.
