What To Expect When Using Oral Semaglutide Lozenges?

If you are using semaglutide lozenges, learn about 4 things that you should expect when getting started.

Read on

Semaglutide oral lozenges may be a medication that takes a bit of an adjustment period to get used to. This may come along with side effects you need to manage, dosage adjustments, and lifestyle changes. 

Patience and knowledge are key to getting the best results from your oral Semaglutide treatment. Below, we will cover 4 things to expect when using oral Semaglutide lozenges for weight loss.

1. Expect dosage increases over the course of a few months

For the best results, most people should increase the strength of their Semaglutide oral lozenges over a few months. 

While the ramp-up period is important to help you better tolerate the medication and stay on the treatment, the lower dosages are unlikely to provide adequate results to meet your expectations. For this reason, you will want to follow a guided ramp-up dosing schedule over the course of a few months.

Talk to your Strut doctor about how well you are tolerating your current strength and how well it is working for you to come up with a dosage increase plan.

The generally recommended oral Semaglutide lozenge dosage chart is the following:

Month -- Semaglutide Lozenge Dosage

Month 1 -- One 250mcg lozenge once daily

Month 2 -- One 500mcg lozenge once daily

Month 3 and on -- One 1,000mcg lozenge once daily

2. Expect some initial side effects

Most people who use Semaglutide medications will experience some level of side effects. These side effects tend to involve gastrointestinal upset, and come about due to how the medication is working to help you lose weight. Luckily, many people may find that the side effects reduce or clear up over time as they continue using the medication, and get used to how it feels.

The potential common side effects of Semaglutide medications can include:

  • Bloating
  • Excessive fullness
  • Burping
  • Air or gas in the stomach or intestines
  • Stomach pain, discomfort, or fullness
  • Passing gas
  • Heartburn
  • Fever
  • Yellow eyes or skin

If these are severe or bothersome to you, talk to your doctor. They may be able to adjust your dosage, suggest tips to help reduce your uncomfortable side effects, or decide that this medication is not a good fit for you.

3. Expect to feel less hungry and fuller faster

Part of how Semaglutide works to help you lose weight is that it can make you feel less hungry, and help you feel fuller faster after eating smaller amounts of food than usual. This is a normal effect of the medication. This is how it helps people consume fewer calories throughout the day.

This change may come on quickly, and make it that you need to adjust your diet choices or timing to avoid feeling uncomfortable.

4. Expect an adjustment period

Semaglutide medications may come along with an adjustment period. This time frame may be longer in some people as compared to others, and may require some talks with your doctor and/or dosage adjustments to find a plan that works for you.

You may find that you have to make adjustments to avoid uncomfortable side effects or help better manage them. You may also make drastic changes to your diet like eating smaller meals, not eating too late in the evening, and avoiding greasy or high-fat foods that can make side effects worse.

Try to be patient with your medication, and be open with your doctor about your side effects to get the best results from your treatment.
