What is Rybelsus?

Rybelsus is a prescription medication given to adults with type 2 diabetes to help lower their blood sugar (glucose) when used with exercise and diet changes. It is a non-insulin medication that causes your pancreas to produce more insulin, helping to lower your blood glucose levels. You take Rybelsus in tablet form, usually once a day when you first wake up but make sure you always use your Rybelsus as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.

Rybelsus active ingredients

The active ingredient in Rybelsus is called semaglutide. It’s a non-insulin drug that can help lower your blood glucose levels by stimulating the cells in your pancreas that produce insulin (called beta cells).

When you take Rybelsus, semaglutide molecules attach to beta cells in your pancreas at sites called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptors. The semaglutide stimulates these receptors, which makes the beta cells produce more insulin, helping to lower your blood sugar after you’ve eaten.

Semaglutide also encourages the growth of more beta cells in your pancreas, allowing your pancreas to produce higher levels of insulin, reversing any declines in your body’s insulin production.

Rybelsus side effects & Rybelsus drug interactions

As with all medications, Rybelsus can cause side effects. The most common include:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Stomach (abdominal) pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Decreased appetite

For some people, Rybelsus can cause more serious side effects. These are rarer but can include:

  • An increased risk of thyroid tumors, including cancerous tumors
  • Inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis)
  • Changes in your vision
  • Very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause itching, rashes, swelling, and difficulties breathing

Tell your prescribing physician if you take any of the following as they can interact with Rybelsus:

  • Insulin – Rybelsus can be used alongside insulin, but your doctor may change the dose of insulin you take and/or how often you take insulin
  • Any other medications take to treat type 2 diabetes, like sulfonylureas
  • Any medications you take by mouth to reduce the risk of blood clots (oral anticoagulants) like warfarin
