Weight Loss Programme using Saxenda

Saxenda is indicated for weight loss in patients in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

We are offering a pharmacist led weight loss programme using Saxenda at our local Loughborough pharmacy. Consultations may be carried out online or face to face.

Saxenda® is an injectable weight loss prescription only medicine that contains the active substance liraglutide. Liraglutide was originally developed to treat diabetes. It is similar to a natural occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is released from the intestine after a meal.

Saxenda® works by acting on receptors in the brain that control your appetite making you feel more satisfied, causing you to feel fuller and less hungry. This may help you eat less food which in most cases can lead to long-term weight loss.

By controlling your appetite, curbing hunger and suppressing cravings, you are likely to eat less food and in turn with diet and exercise reduce your body weight. Saxenda® may also improve weight-related health complications and overall health.

Adults aged 18 and over who are considered obese (BMI 30kg/m2 or greater) OR who are considered overweight (BMI 27kg/m2 - 29kg/m2) and have been diagnosed with a weight-related health problem, such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal levels of fats in the blood or breathing problems during sleep.

Do a quick check to see if you are eligible or contact us to speak with and advisor.

As with all medications it is possible you will experience some side effects whilst using Saxenda®. The most common include but are not limited to nausea, vomiting, constipation and diarrhoea.
