If you have type 2 diabetes, your body may not create as much insulin or it may not function properly. Your blood sugar level rises as a result, and if unchecked, this can lead to health issues.

Mounjaro is a useful therapy for controlling blood sugar levels and promoting weight reduction.

85.1% of participants in this 2022 trial who received once-weekly Mounjaro injections said that by week 72, their starting body weight had decreased by at least 5%. In this study, participants receiving weekly doses of 5 mg, 10 mg, or 15 mg were compared to those receiving a placebo.

For every dosage, the average weight change was as follows:

The initial weight for those taking 5 mg was -16.0%; for those taking 10 mg, for those taking 15 mg, for those taking 22.5%; and for those receiving a placebo (no drug), the starting weight was 2.4%.
This implies that 15 milligrams may help you lose almost ten times as much weight as Mounjaro, in contrast to just dieting and working out.

Our physicians will advise you on how to take any self-injection medication that you order from us. You can also message us for free  if you require any more guidance.

Mounjaro vs Wegovy: How to switch between them

It has been demonstrated that Mounjaro is somewhat more efficient than Wegovy. However, if you combine any of these with a weight-loss strategy, they can both be beneficial therapies. Wegovy is already available; therefore, you may use us to obtain therapy right away. Just begin your evaluation and make a treatment request. If medicine is recommended, one of our doctors will examine your evaluation and provide the go-ahead.

It is feasible to move from Wegovy to Mounjaro if you are currently using Wegovy. That being said, you must take a two-month hiatus from Wegovy before beginning the lowest dose of Mounjaro. Like with Wegovy, you then raise your dosage gradually until you reach your maintenance level.

It might not be the best idea to transition from a Wegovy maintenance dose to a Mounjaro one since this could impede your efforts to lose weight. It is preferable to finish your present course of medication and only consider switching if, after 20 weeks, you are unable to tolerate any further adverse effects.

It’s crucial to keep in mind that Mounjaro isn’t currently compatible with weight reduction, which might make switching impossible.

What is the best alternative to Mounjaro for weight loss?

You should choose Wegovy or Saxenda as alternatives to Mounjaro if you’re searching for an authorized injection for weight loss. As long as you are qualified for the prescription you want to switch to, you may always switch between weight reduction pills, albeit it could take some time.

The active component of Wegovy is semaglutide, an agonist of GLP-1 receptors. It helps you cut calories and nibble less by acting on the areas of your brain related to appetite and hunger. You take Wegovy once a week. Mounjaro adverse effects and Wegovy’s side effects are comparable.

This GLP-1 receptor agonist is likewise taken weekly; however, saxenda is used in place of it.each and every day. You can transfer from Saxenda to Wegovy with a physician’s assistance. Regretfully, Saxenda is permanently out of stock right now.

You can also get weight loss tablets, including:

  • Xenical – this stops around a third of the fat being absorbed when taken with meals containing fat. Xenical can be taken up to 3 times a day. The active ingredient is orlistat.
  • Orlistat – an unbranded version of Xenical which costs less.
  • Mysimba – contains the active ingredients bupropion and naltrexone hydrochloride and is taken once a day. Mysimba works on the areas of your brain that control appetite and hunger, making it easier to eat less.

Not sure which to start with? If you’re comfortable injecting yourself, Wegovy can be a good first choice. It’s effective and only needs to be taken once a week. If you’re not comfortable with injections, Mysimba tablets can also reduce your appetite. Unlike the other tablets that contain orlistat, Mysimba doesn’t bind fat, meaning you don’t have to restrict it from your diet in the same way.
