Saxenda is currently out of stock. Wegovy is now available from our UK Pharmacy.
Saxenda (liraglutide) is a prescription weight loss medication that is used as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for the treatment of obesity in adults. It is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which works by regulating appetite and food intake. Saxenda is available in the form of an injectable solution and is usually injected once a day.
Saxenda is approved for use in the United Kingdom (UK) and is available by prescription from PrescriptionDoctor. It is important to use Saxenda as directed by your healthcare provider and to follow all instructions on the label. If you have any questions about Saxenda or how to use it, you should contact your healthcare provider for guidance.
Since being approved for weight loss in 2014, Saxenda, pre-filled with 6mg/ml liraglutide, has helped many people achieve their weight loss goals.
With Prescription Doctor, you can order Saxenda online from our UK pharmacy following an online consultation with one of our doctors.
Our pharmacy includes free needles, a sharps bin with every order, and a stylish carrying pouch when you order more than three pens. If you require more needles, you can order more needles here.
Suppose your order is approved by one of our online doctors before 3 p.m. on weekdays. In that case, our UK-based pharmacy will package your Saxenda order in discreet packaging and dispatch it to your door via fast next-day delivery.
Saxenda is a weight loss solution that can only be prescribed by a registered prescriber, such as a doctor, pharmacist or nurse prescriber. If you want to buy Saxenda from our online clinic, you'll need to fill out an online consultation form first. Our registered prescriber will review your form and determine if you're eligible to use Saxenda. If you are eligible, we'll send it to you through next-day delivery in the UK.
To be eligible for Saxenda, you need to be at least 18 years old and have a BMI of 27+ with a co-morbidity or 30+ without a co-morbidity. A co-morbidity is another health condition related to being overweight, such as back or knee pain, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.
Weight loss is a journey that takes hard work and dedication, with or without the help of medication. Once you finish treatment with Saxenda, you should continue eating healthily and exercising regularly to lose weight.
When you order Saxenda online from Prescription Doctor, our online prescriber will review your suitability. You can use the "my chats" area of the website to ask our online prescriber any questions about Saxenda.
Saxenda may interfere with other medications, such as:
For a complete list of interactions with Liraglutide (Saxenda), visit NICE interactions.
The Saxenda pen is designed to deliver a specific number of doses of the medication. The pen is labelled with the number of doses it contains.
For example, the Saxenda pen may contain 15 doses or 18 doses, depending on the strength of the medication and the needs of the patient. Once the pen has been used to deliver the full number of doses, it should be disposed of and replaced with a new pen.
The dose of Saxenda will depend on the specific needs of the patient and the recommendations of the healthcare provider. The usual starting dose is 0.6 mg once a day. The dose may then be increased to 1.2 mg once a day after one week and then to the maintenance dose of 3 mg once a day after four weeks.
Please understand that the following is a guideline. Your prescriber will need to monitor you while taking Saxenda. If they feel that increasing the dose is unsuitable - which may happen if a higher dose of liraglutide is not well tolerated - they will not increase the dosage until they believe it is safe.
As the table shows above, you will need 4 Saxenda pens to reach the optimum dosage of 3 mg per day. Once you reach the optimum dosage, a single Saxenda Pen will last six days.
1 Month of treatment requires 5 Saxenda pens. We offer the option to buy five pens for £59.79 per pen. An adequate number of needles and a sharps bin will be included with your order.
Our prices start from as little as £55.99 per pen when you order ten pens.
Saxenda® addresses one of your body's natural responses to help you lose weight. Saxenda® works like GLP-1 to regulate your appetite, which can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight.
Your body naturally produces an appetite hormone known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that helps to regulate your hunger.
Saxenda® works like GLP-1 by regulating your appetite, which can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight.
Liraglutide also suppresses your appetite. This makes you feel less hungry, resulting in you consuming fewer calories.
Moreover, liraglutide has been shown to reverse pre-diabetes and significantly reduce the severity of obstructive sleep apnoea.
Saxenda does not speed up the way your body burns calories or give you more energy to exercise.
While using Saxenda, it is essential to eat a varied and balanced diet and exercise regularly. Saxenda alone is not enough to help you lose weight.
In clinical studies, more than 50% of people taking weight loss medication Saxenda lost 5% or more of their body weight after 12 weeks. This means someone weighing 77 kg could potentially lose 5kgs after 12 weeks.
After approximately one year (56 weeks) of taking Saxenda, 95% of people lost, on average, 8% of their body weight.
Over three years on Saxenda Pen, 33% of responders continued to lose 10% or more of their baseline body weight.
You can read more about the Saxenda study by the University of Leicester in collaboration with Novo Nordisk.
All medications carry the potential risk of side effects, though not everybody experiences them. It is essential to understand the risks associated with your medication before you begin taking Saxenda.
Information regarding the safety of Saxenda, including how to use and store the medicine, can be found within the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine.
Some common Saxenda side effects include:
The side effects listed above should go away on their own after a few days or weeks as your body gets used to the medicine.
If your side effects do not subside after a few weeks of taking Saxenda, or are causing you concern, speak to your doctor.
Other Saxenda side effects may include:
This is not an exhaustive list of side effects. Further information regarding the safety of Saxenda can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment.
If you experience any side effects, whether listed above or in the patient information leaflet, discuss them with your doctor. You can also report them to our online prescriber for advice. Go to "my account" and "my chats" to send a message to our prescriber.
Do not take Saxenda if you are allergic to liraglutide or other ingredients in Saxenda, such as:
Signs of an allergic reaction include:
In cases of an allergic reaction, stop using Saxenda and go straight to your nearest accident and emergency department.
Do not take Saxenda if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
It is unknown how Saxenda affects a child's development during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
If you become pregnant while taking Saxenda, inform your doctor right away.
Saxenda is not suitable for people who take insulin or another GLP-1 receptor agonist for the treatment of diabetes, as it may increase your risk of hypoglycaemia. Saxenda is not a substitute for insulin.
During the online consultation, you should list all the medicines you are currently taking, including those on prescription or purchased over the counter from a pharmacy.
Acute pancreatitis has been noticed in patients taking Saxenda. Signs of acute pancreatitis include:
Inform our prescriber if you have any thyroid issues (hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism) and are taking any medicine for a thyroid issue, such as Levothyroxine. Saxenda may not be suitable for people with thyroid problems.
Do not take Saxenda past the expiry date printed on the packaging.
Do not leave your Saxenda pen in your car or anywhere else where it may get too hot. Store in a refrigerator (2°C to 8°C). Do not freeze. Keep away from the freezer compartment.
Do not attempt to inject Saxenda if any part of it has frozen.
Do not expose your pen to dust, dirt or liquid, as this may damage the pen's mechanism.
Do not drop your pen, as this can damage the pen.
Do not attempt to dismantle or refill your Saxenda pen. The weight loss pens are pre-filled and cannot be refilled or serviced. Once you have used the Saxenda medicine in your pen, discard the used pen and begin a new pen.
Never throw away Saxenda via household or water waste. Take any unwanted or expired Saxenda to your pharmacy and ask them to dispose of it safely.
Always keep treatment, needles and sharps bin containers out of sight and reach from children and pets.
Never share your Saxenda pen or needles with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms.
While alcohol is unlikely to interact with Saxenda, you should avoid or limit alcohol consumption while taking Saxenda.
Alcoholic drinks are high in calories and offer little nutritional value. Furthermore, alcohol may increase your risk of, or worsen, side effects of Saxenda, such as nausea, vomiting and dizziness.
Saxenda should not impact your ability to drive or operate machinery.
However, if you experience any side effects which may impact your concentration, such as dizziness, you should refrain from these activities until you feel well enough to do them.
Weight loss medication Saxenda starts working within two weeks of treatment at the recommended dose (3mg) and continues to work for 9 to 12 months. It is essential to keep taking Saxenda as prescribed for it to work. In combination with Saxenda, you must exercise regularly and eat a healthy and balanced diet.
Once you reach the recommended dosage (3mg daily), one Saxenda pen should last six days. You should discard your Saxenda pen 30 days after opening it, even if there is still medicine left.
During transit, Saxenda must be kept cool. This is why we include a small frozen gel pack. You can discard the gel pack in the bin. Take care not to burst the bag.
Saxenda has been approved for use in the NHS for people with a BMI over 35 mg/m².
To obtain Saxenda legally in the UK, you will need to complete an online consultation with a healthcare provider, such as a Prescription Doctor or a nurse practitioner, who can evaluate your health and determine if Saxenda is an appropriate treatment for you.
