Are Mounjaro and Wegovy the Same?
No, Moujnaro and Wegovy are two distinct medications manufactured by different manufacturers with different active ingredients. Mounjaro is manufactured by Eli Lilly and has the active ingredient Tirzepatide, while Wegovy is manufactured by Novo Nordisk and has the active ingredient Semaglutide.
Both medications are approved for weight loss treatments. However, Mounjaro is unavailable in the UK. Plus, both medications make you feel fuller for longer, helping you cut down on extra calories. Both treatments are GLP-1 receptor agonists.
However, Mounjaro is also GIP mimetic, offering dual action. It mimics two hormones at the same time, helping in weight loss and supporting blood glucose levels.
