At the Pain Relief Center, we recognize that weight loss is a process that is unique to each individual and involves factors beyond the numbers on a scale.

About Saxenda Pens

What is Saxenda?

Saxenda Pens is a weight loss treatment that can be prescribed if you:

  • have a BMI between 27 kg/m2 and 30 kg/m2 and a health condition which can affect your weight, such as high blood pressure
  • have a BMI of over 30 kg/m

Our doctors will take your BMI and all of your medical history into consideration and may prescribe off-label when making a decision about treatment.

Saxenda is an injectable pen that contains the active ingredient liraglutide. It can help you lose weight when used as part of a weight loss treatment plan.

What are the different doses of Saxenda?

Five dosages of saxenda pens are available:

  • 0.6 mg in the first week,
  • 1.2 mg in the second,
  • 1.8 mg in the third, 
  • 2.4 mg in the fourth
  • 3.0 mg starting in week five

Over the course of four weeks, you must gradually increase from the lowest dose to the highest dose. This will allow your body to adjust to Saxenda pen and allow you to safely take the maximum dosage. No more doses are offered. To get it to work faster, you can’t take the maximum dose right now. No more effective doses than 3.0 mg are currently available. Follow your doctor’s advice regarding taking your medicine, as well as your food and exercise regimen, to get the fastest and greatest possible weight loss results.

There are 17 doses at the lowest dosage (0.6 mg) in each Saxenda pen. Pens in your first pack are sufficient for four weeks’ worth of dosages. After you reach the maximum dosage of 3 mg, one pen usually lasts for a week.

During the first five weeks of treatment, you will need to change the dosage on your pens. Refer to the “How to Take a Dosage of Saxenda” section.

How do Saxenda pens work?

Liraglutide, a component of Saxenda, functions similarly to glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a naturally occurring hormone. Following a meal, your intestines often release GLP-1, a signal to your brain that your stomach is full.

In addition to helping you regulate your appetite, saxenda  injections notify your brain when you are full. Saxenda pens make it easy for you to eat less and lose weight by gradually reducing your appetite.

How fast does it work?

After 4 weeks of gradually increasing to the maximum dose of Saxenda pens (16 weeks total), it is reasonable to anticipate losing more than 5% of your body weight after 12 weeks on that dosage. For optimal effects, Saxenda should be used in conjunction with a diet and exercise regimen.

How long does it last?

About half of a single dose of Saxenda disappears from your body in the first 13 hours and remains in your system for approximately 2 days.

You may complete your course of treatment earlier or continue past the 12-week mark of the highest dose (16 weeks total), depending on how the medicine affects you and your weight loss objectives. Your doctor will discuss with you the possibility of terminating your treatment once you have met your weight loss objectives.

How to use Saxenda pens in general

Your treatment plan will be discussed with you by your physician. As your body adjusts to the medication, your dose will increase until you reach the maximum of 3 mg per day. After using Saxenda pens on the maintenance dose for 12 weeks, you should only continue taking it if you have dropped at least 5% of your body weight.

Stick to your weight loss plan during treatment

During treatment, follow your doctor’s recommended diet and exercise regimen since Saxenda by itself does not promote weight loss. To ensure that Saxenda is functioning as it should and that you are losing weight, your doctor will evaluate your treatment on a regular basis.

Do you need to avoid certain foods?

Saxenda doesn’t react negatively with any foods, so you don’t need to eliminate anything from your diet entirely. However, in order to get the most out of your Saxenda treatment, you need consume a balanced diet, so you should limit or avoid the following foods:

  • sweet meals and beverages, such as fruit juices, cakes, biscuits, breakfast bars, and fizzy drinks
  • foods heavy in saturated fats, such as fried, quick, and crisp foods

How to take a dose of Saxenda

For optimal effects, use Saxenda at the same time every day. Choose a time of day that is most convenient for you, like the morning. Saxenda can be taken with or without meals and liquids.

Use only the included needles with your Saxenda pen. Their maximum length should be 8mm, and their maximum breadth should be 34G. The pen and needle is similar to the one used to inject insulin, for comparison.

When using Saxenda for the first time, always make sure to read the directions that come with the package or refer to our guide. You should receive assistance if you are blind or have low vision.

Setting your dose

Verify that you are administering the recommended dosage of medication to your body by comparing it to your treatment plan. Your Saxenda pen’s dose selector can be turned back and forth to adjust the dosage, up to a maximum of 3 mg. The dosage is displayed in a little window.

Where to inject your dose

It’s time to inject the drug when you’ve determined the appropriate dosage. You should use a fresh injection site every day to protect your skin. You have a selection of the following injection locations:

  • the top of your arm
  • the front of your thigh
  • the front of your abdomen (below your stomach), which is the injection site that is most frequently advised

Never inject medication into a muscle or vein.

Throw away your needle after your injection

Never lend out your Saxenda pen or needles to others. You will need a prescription for Saxenda.

The amount of needles you receive from us when you order Saxenda is always sufficient. Consult your online doctor for extra information if necessary. Never use a needle that is broken or crooked.

If you have an allergy to any of the medication’s ingredients—especially liraglutide—you should not use Saxenda. If you have any additional medical conditions, a doctor will assess your request to ensure that Saxenda is the best course of treatment for you.

Consult your physician if you take any additional medications, particularly if you take:

  • any prescription diabetes medication, since it may result in hypoglycemia,
  • low blood sugar, and anticoagulants, which lessen the risk of blood clots

Saxenda is not recommended for use by expectant mothers or nursing moms. Consult your doctor and cease taking Saxenda if you suspect you may be pregnant. Saxenda should not be taken by women who are actively attempting to conceive.

Ordering Saxenda treatment

Ordering Saxenda online

It’s quick and simple to ask a  doctor for Saxenda. Simply answer a brief health-related inquiry. When you submit your initial Saxenda request through our questionnaire, our doctors will need to see a few pictures in order to assess whether Saxenda is a good fit for you. You may upload a full-length photo that displays your weight as well as a single shot of yourself standing on a scale. It’s not required that you show your face in the pictures. All images are kept completely private and will only be seen by the medical staff of .

If your prescription is prescribed by a physician, it will be sent to you after they have examined your photo.

After that, cold chain refrigerated shipping will be used to deliver your Saxenda treatment to you. Requests that are reviewed after 4 p.m. on a Thursday will be shipped out on Monday for delivery on Tuesday due to cold chain constraints.

Where else can you get Saxenda?

Additionally, weight control specialists can provide you with Saxenda treatment. Your general practitioner (GP) can send you to a specialist who can approve Saxenda treatment if you’ve tried other treatments, such as dietary adjustments and weight loss pills.

Most pharmacies will fill a prescription that your specialist has given you.

Alternative weight loss treatments

In the event that Saxenda is not the best course of therapy for you, our online service offers additional choices, including:

  • Wegovy, a different prescription injection for weight loss that functions similarly to Saxenda, will soon be offered in the US
  • Orlistat is a generic weight-loss medication that modifies the way your body breaks down fat.
  • Mysimba is a weight-loss medication that suppresses appetite by communicating with the brain. Its main components are bupropion hydrochloride and naltrexone hydrochloride.
  • Xenical, a branded form of orlistat that functions similarly
  • The medicine Contrave is the same as Mysimba; the UK doesn’t use the American brand name.

Which alternatives are cheaper?

Saxenda can be obtained with an NHS prescription, meaning that it may be free if you don’t pay for your prescriptions or as inexpensive as the usual NHS prescription charge of £9.35. Other options that can be prescribed by the NHS are:

  • Xenical
  • Orlistat
  • prescribed workout regimens

If you make an appointment at your regular general practitioner’s office, a doctor can also provide you with free advice on losing weight.

Frequently asked questions

There isn’t a generic version of Saxenda yet. The company that makes Saxenda (Novo Nordisk) owns a patent, which stops anyone else from making a generic version. The earliest generic version will be available in the US and UK on February 13th, 2026.

Saxenda doesn’t cause weight loss by itself and doesn’t work for everyone. Make sure you stick to your diet and exercise plan to help Saxenda work properly. If it’s been 16 weeks since you started treatment and you’ve stuck to your diet and exercise plan and you still haven’t lost weight, talk to your doctor about changing to another treatment.

When you miss a dose, the level of saxenda in your body will drop slightly. Every time you take a dose, you’re ‘topping up’ the amount of saxenda in your body. If your levels do drop, you might notice feeling less full after eating.

When you miss a dose of Saxenda and it’s still the same day, take your dose as normal. If you remember you forgot one yesterday or earlier, just take your normal dose when you’re supposed to. Don’t take extra Saxenda to make up for missing doses on other days, and never take two doses on the same day.

If you miss 2 or more doses in a row, talk to your doctor about restarting treatment.

After you stop Saxenda, you will stop feeling as full after eating. But, if you stick to the diet and exercise plan you were on when you were losing weight with Saxenda, you should be able to keep the weight off. If you start struggling with weight after stopping Saxenda, talk to your GP.

No, saxenda contains a different active ingredient than insulin, liraglutide. Liraglutide is a man-made hormone that does help increase insulin production in your body so it does help stop insulin spiking after you eat. Insulin and liraglutide may be prescribed together to help people with type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar and weight.

Saxenda is only meant to be used as part of a weight loss plan that includes diet and exercise. Since Saxenda does make you feel fuller, you are likely to want to eat less when taking it anyway, but it’s important that you don’t rely on Saxenda alone.

Saxenda can make you feel fuller after just one or two doses, but it will take some time for you to start losing weight after you begin treatment.

Saxenda comes in packs of 1, 3, and 5 pens. How many pens you need depends on what stage of treatment you’re at. As you move onto higher doses of Saxenda, you’ll get fewer doses out of each pen.

Your first pack should include enough pens for you to work up to the highest dose—5 pens in total that will last about 6 weeks. Once you’re on the highest dose, each pen will last about a week, and a pack of 5 pens will last 30 days.

Hair loss is not a side effect of saxenda. But, some people can get temporary hair loss from losing weight quickly, known as telogen effluvium. This type of hair loss usually fixes itself after about 6 months as your body adapts to your new weight.
