How do I switch from Ozempic to Wegovy?
If you are currently taking Ozempic or have previously taken Ozempic for weight loss, then follow the below guidance:
- If you are currently taking Ozempic, you can switch to the same strength of Wegovy or the next higher dose. For example, if you are currently on 1.0mg Ozempic, you can go up to 1.7mg Wegovy.
- If you have been taking Ozempic previously and have had a short treatment gap of a couple of weeks:
You can continue on Wegovy from where you left off.
- If you have been taking Ozempic 1.0mg previously and have had a longer treatment gap:
You should start on 0.5 mg. Re-starting from 0.5mg will reduce the chances of side effects such as nausea, so it is the safer and appropriate option.
If you have been taking Ozempic for the treatment of type-2 diabetes, then you should continue on Ozempic and not take Wegovy. Wegovy is not licensed for type-2 diabetes.
