What is Zepbound?

Zepbound is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved weight loss drug manufactured by Eli Lilly and Co. Zepbound is a “dual-agonist drug” consisting of a GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonist. GIP activity is associated with a decreased food intake and increased energy expenditure, which may contribute to weight loss. Combined with a GLP-1, this medication may result in more positive effects on blood glucose and body weight.

Zepbound is a weight loss medication that is used to help treat adults with obesity, or with excess weight (overweight) who may also have weight-related medical conditions. It helps to lose weight and keep the weight off when used consistently. It is not for use in people with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, people with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2, or children under 18 years of age.

Zepbound should be used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and an increase in physical activity.

A prescription is required for this prescription weight loss medication. Speak with your healthcare provider to find out if this medication is right for you.

Zepbound is injected under the skin (subcutaneously) in the stomach (abdomen), thigh, or upper arm once per week. It can be taken with or without food. If you miss a dose of the medication, you can take the missed dose as soon as possible within 96 hours after the missed dose. If you missed the dose by more than 4 days, it is recommended to skip the missed dose and take your next dose on the regularly scheduled day.

This prescription medication should be used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.

The recommended starting dose is 2.5 mg which is not indicated for chronic weight management. After 4 weeks, the dose of this medication should be increased to 5 mg once per week. The recommended maintenance doses are 5 mg, 10 mg or 15 mg.
