Which dose of Ozempic should I take?

If you’re taking Semaglutide for the first time, or you’re restarting after a few weeks off, you will start on the 0.25mg dose, and take this for 4 weeks (once injection a week). The 0.25 is also known as your ‘starting dose’.

After your first month on treatment, you will increase your dose to 0.5mg and remain on this for 4 weeks. The 0.5mg is known as the ‘titration dose’.

After this, as long as you do not have severe nausea or other side effects, you will progress to the 1.0mg. This is known as the maintenance dose and will remain on this for the duration of your treatment.

Please note that the prescriber will make the final decision on whether the course of treatment and the dose you take is appropriate.
