If you have missed a dose of Wegovy:

It is important to try to take your dose on the same day each week. However if you forget or miss it then follow the following guidance:

If your dose is:

  • Delayed for 4 days or less, you should take the dose immediately as soon as you remember. You can inject your next dose as usual on your scheduled day.
  • Delayed for more than 4 days, then you should skip the missed dose. You should inject your next dose as usual on your next scheduled day.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose if it has been delayed for more than 4 days.

For example, if you take your dose on Sunday and you missed it and then remember to take it on Wednesday, then take it as soon as possible and continue as normal the following Sunday. If your scheduled day is Sunday and you forgot to take it till Thursday, skip that week and take it the following Sunday.

Our recommendation is that you add a reminder for your Wegovy dose. It will help you inject it on the same day of the week and at the same time. Make the habit of writing that you have taken your dose; it’s an easy way to remember when you took your last Wegovy dose.
