Saxenda is similar to a hormone that occurs naturally in the body and helps control blood sugar, insulin levels, and digestion. It is an injectable medicine that can aid obese or overweight adults to lose weight and keep it off.

Saxenda is a once daily injectable medication. This weight loss drug is intended for adults over the age of 18. It is most effective when following a reduced calorie, low fat diet.
Saxenda is similar to a hormone that occurs naturally in the body.
By mimicking this hormone, Saxenda helps the brain to recognise the body is full after eating less food - and therefore less calories - than we’d usually eat. Saxenda can help you reduce the number of calories you eat, and in doing so, reduces your weight.
Studies have shown that Saxenda can help people lose more weight than if they were dieting alone.
The Manufacturer of Saxenda states 3 in 5 users had significant weight loss of at least 5%, an average of 12lbs.

Once treatment is stopped it is possible you will regain weight if you do not maintain a controlled and balanced diet.
Saxenda is a once daily injection, each pen lasting approximately six days, depending on your daily dose. The medication should be stored in a refrigerator when not being used and can be injected with or without food at the same time each day.

It can be injected into the abdomen, thigh and upper arm.

IMPORTANT: Saxenda is not to be injected into a vein or muscle.

When using Saxenda for the first time, you start on a low dose which gradually increases  over the first five weeks until reaching the maximum effective dose. Treatment should stop after 12 weeks if you have not lost at least 5% of your starting weight.
