Wegovy and rash

Anyone experience a raised rash one week post injection? Due for my 3rd shot tonight and I noticed raised bumps on my arms and torso. Not sure if it’s related but I’m concerned. ## The FDA does list a skin rash as being a possible side effect of Wegovy, along with anxiety, bloating, constipation, and cough. However, you should check with your doctor to be certain. Are you on any other medications? Ref: Medline Plus ## Wegovy has a boxed warning about the possible risk of thyroid cancer. A boxed warning is a serious warning from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about drug effects that may be dangerous. Did you see this? I would stop taking these, it does work but also comes with consequences like everything else. Try to follow a diet from a holistic doctor as my sister ...

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 ...

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.

Side effects of Wegovy / Diarrhea

Does anyone have experience with Wegovy side effects, how long they last etc? ## Diarrhea is listed by the FDA as a very common side effect of Wegovy, along with headache, dizziness, bloating, and heartburn. Ref: Medline Plus Wegovy Side effects typically hit their peak at around 4 to 6 weeks, after starting a medication at a steady dose, then taper off in severity. Has anyone else that's been taking this medication experienced side effects? ## I think the diarrhea is happening less. That may be because I eat almost nothing. I’m afraid if I eat regular meals I will poop and throw up. ## The diarrhea went away until I moved up to 1.7. Now it is severe. Will eating any carbs or sugar make the diarrhea worse?
