Are there any alternatives available for Wegovy injection?
There are no generic alternatives for Wegovy. There are, however, similar medications available that contain the same class of the wegovy active ingredient (GLP-1), but these can significantly differ in terms of results.
Ozempic is a semaglutide drug that has shown the effects of weight loss. However, it is licensed for type 2 diabetes and not weight loss.
Saxenda is another drug used for weight loss. It has the active ingredient liraglutide. Although it is licensed for weight loss, it’s not a day injection and is not as effective as Wegovy.
