Saxenda weight loss pen contains the active ingredient Liraglutide, which works in many ways to help you lose weight. It slows down the passage of food through your body and curbs your appetite, allowing you to feel fuller for longer and helps you create better eating habits, so you can stay healthy in the long run.

With 20% of the UK population now considered obese and statistics showing a steady increase towards obesity, it is vital we tackle this epidemic in a healthy and effective way. A BMI score of 30 and above would classify you as obese and puts you in the higher risk category for blood pressure and cardiovascular health problems.

Take action today and use Saxenda alongside a healthy programme of exercise and mindful eating to create the deficit you need to lose the weight.

What is Saxenda?

Saxenda is a weight loss pen that helps tackle obesity and contains the active ingredient Liraglutide. Liraglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist, which means it binds to these receptors and mimics the sensation of feeling full.

How to Use

How long does one pen last?

One 3ml Saxenda pen contains 18 mg of liraglutide. To begin treatment, you will need to steadily increase the amount of Saxenda you inject, increasing the dose every week as your body starts to tolerate it better. The loading phase should follow the dosage regimen below over a period of 4 weeks.

  • 0.6mg for 7 days
  • Then 1.2mg for 7 days
  • Then 1.8mg for 7 days
  • Then 2.4 mg for 7 days

3 Pens are enough to last you the first 4 Weeks of treatment. You then need to switch to a maintenance dose of 3mg per day. From this point on 1 pen will last you 6 days. We recommend you purchase 5 pens to last you a tidy 30 days. This is ample time to monitor progress and see results.

How do I inject the dose?

The self-inject technology is really simple to use and virtually pain free. Follow the instructions and watch Saxendas tutorial video to see how to inject your first dose. Alternatively, visit a health care practitioner, so they can teach you how to do it. Injections will be given in the stomach region around the belly button or in the upper thigh or upper arm.

Who is Saxenda for?
