What is Saxenda?

Saxenda is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medication that can help with weight management. It is a prescription drug that is used to treat obesity, and it can help a person lose weight if they are overweight by improving digestion, and regulating their insulin when blood sugar levels are high.


How Does Saxenda Work?

Saxenda is an injectable prescription medication that is often used alongside diet and exercise to help individuals who experience difficulties in losing weight. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, meaning it helps the body produce more insulin. Saxenda also decreases appetite by communicating to the brain that a person is full, thus turning off one’s hunger.

  • Reducing waistline
  • Regulating blood sugar levels
  • Suppressing appetite

 Chronic diseases like obesity usually require long-term treatment. Your health care provider will create a plan tailored to your weight-management goals. You'll need to visit your health care provider 4 months after you begin taking Saxenda® to review your progress and renew your prescription.
