Safety information: GLP-1 medications are prescribed for the treatment of obesity or overweight in conjunction with diet and exercise regimens. However, it’s important to note that these medications can lead to serious side effects, including the potential development of thyroid tumors. If you or your family have a history of a specific type of thyroid cancer known as MTC or MEN 2, it is advised not to use these medications. For further details on critical warnings and safety considerations, please refer to additional safety information.
On average, people who took a GLP-1 medication such as Semaglutide and Tirzepatide lose up to 15-20% of their weight within a year.

Due to high demand, Novo Nordisk, the company behind Wegovy, Ozempic, and Saxenda, foresees shortages in the availability of these medications. They expect the demand for Wegovy to surpass the available supply. Patients might encounter challenges in obtaining Wegovy prescriptions at the doses of 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, and 1 mg, as well as Saxenda prescriptions, throughout 2023 and potentially beyond. It has been observed that nearly half of the patients still face difficulties accessing the affected Wegovy and Saxenda doses even after waiting for a month.
NiceRx and its affiliated healthcare providers are taking additional measures to assist patients in their weight loss journey. We are helping patients to access compounded GLP-1 medications (e.g. compounded semaglutide) that are readily available while the brand name drugs are in shortage to assist with the continuity of treatment. Providers may adjust the treatment plan for patients if deemed clinically appropriate. These adjustments could involve prescribing alternative GLP-1 medications, working collaboratively on a personalized treatment plan, or suggesting modifications to diet, lifestyle, and fitness activities.
For patients starting the NiceRx Weight Loss Program, the initial steps remain unaffected by the supply issues. If a provider decides that a GLP-1 medication is suitable, the sooner a patient joins the program, the quicker our team can work towards assisting you with your weight loss journey.
Medical weight loss refers to a comprehensive and supervised approach to achieving weight loss under the guidance of healthcare professionals, typically involving physicians and other specialized medical personnel. This method differs from conventional weight loss programs in that it integrates medical expertise to address underlying health issues, such as obesity-related conditions or metabolic disorders.
Medical weight loss programs often include a combination of personalized diet plans, exercise regimens, behavioral therapy, and, when necessary, prescription medications if medically appropriate. The focus is on creating a tailored and sustainable weight loss plan that considers an individual’s unique health profile and medical history. Regular monitoring and adjustments are made to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the weight loss journey, making medical weight loss a more specialized and evidence-based approach than many commercial weight loss programs.
Doctors know that GLP-1 medications are effective at reducing food intake, appetite and hunger. These drugs also slow the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine.
