My doctor suggested that I start ozempic to help lose stubborn weight that I had gained over a few months. I started with .25 on my first week and experienced nausea, threw up a couple of times and headache. It kind of made me nervous to continue but after the first couple of days, the side effects passed and I really just had no appetite. Week 2, .25 again and had small side effects. I did have to go to the bathroom if I ate more than a few bites of anything. Ate a few crackers with chicken salad throughout the day and it helped. Ginger ale was my friend too. Week 3 I was brave enough to go to .5 and didn’t really experience any bad side effects. My system was becoming tolerant. Week 4, .75 and weighed myself for the first time - lost 12 lbs! And two pant sizes!! Week 5 I decided to try the actual prescribed amount, 1, and felt fine.
I am on week six and going to stick with that dose for a while. Weighed today and have lost a total of 19 lbs. I am very impressed with this medication. I have more energy because I feel better about myself. The weight dropped quickly from my face and my tummy is shrinking. I am able to eat three small meals a day to ensure I am getting enough nutrition. This medication has trained my brain to understand that I do not need to clean my plate! I eat slowly and can instantly tell when I am full. I wanted to share my good experience to others. If you have had bad side effects, try a lower dose until you are able to increase. I’m so thankful for my doctor suggesting it because I truly do feel healthier and have a stronger mindset when it comes to eating ! Good luck!!
