What is Saxenda?
Saxenda contains the prescription medicine liraglutide. Liraglutide is similar to a naturally occurring hormone in the body that controls digestion, insulin levels, and blood sugar levels. Saxenda is recommended alongside a reduced-calorie diet and an increase in exercise. It is used to help manage obesity in adult patients with a body mass index (BMI) of
- 30 kg/m2 or more, or
- 27 kg/m2 or more, if you have high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, triglycerides, or a low HDL cholesterol level that is making plaque build up in your arteries worse
Saxenda is not specifically for the treatment of type 1 or type 2 diabetes or weight loss. Saxenda is part of a treatment plan that will include, diet, exercise, and weight management.
Saxenda is given as a subcutaneous injection under the skin. It can be given at any time of the day, with or without a meal. Saxenda comes in a prefilled pen. You should not inject into the same place two times in a row. If the injection has particles in it or changed color, do not use it. Speak to your pharmacist for a new medicine. You should dispose of used needles and syringes by using a puncture-proof disposal sharps container. Store unopened pens in the refrigerator. In-use pens may be kept at room temperature for up to 30 days. Always remember to store your medicine out of the reach of children and pets.
Saxenda active ingredients
Liraglutide is classed as an acylated human glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. Liraglutide binds to and activates the GLP-1 receptor. Unlike naturally occurring GLP-1 in the body, which has a half-life of up to 2 minutes, liraglutide is stable against breakdown by enzymes in the body and has a half-life of 13 hours. Because liraglutide has delayed absorption and plasma protein binding and has a half-life of 13 hours it can be given once daily by subcutaneous injection.
GLP-1 is classed as a physiological regulator of appetite and calorie intake. This means it works by a method known as negative feedback. The GLP-1 receptor is seen in several areas of the brain involved in appetite regulation.
