The amount of time that Saxenda (liraglutide) stays in your system will depend on a number of factors, including your age, weight, and overall health. Saxenda is metabolized in the liver and has an elimination half-life of about 13 hours. This means that it takes about 13 hours for the concentration of the medication in your body to be reduced by half.
Saxenda (liraglutide) is a medication that is used to help adults with obesity or overweight (BMI ≥27) with at least one weight-related condition, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure, lose weight. Saxenda is a type of medication known as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, which works by mimicking the effects of the hormone GLP-1 in the body.
It is typically recommended to take Saxenda once a day, usually at the same time each day. The medication should be taken before the first meal of the day. Saxenda is usually taken in the form of a subcutaneous injection, which means it is injected just under the skin.
Saxenda can take several weeks or months to reach its full effect. It is important to use the medication as directed by your healthcare provider and to follow all instructions on the label. If you have any questions about how to use Saxenda or if you experience any side effects while taking the medication, you should contact your healthcare provider for guidance.
