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...

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...
