Ozempic is a prescription medication used to help with weight loss.
Ozempic works by activating GLP-1 receptors in the brain, which helps your body release insulin and glucagon. This helps control blood sugar levels and promote weight loss.
Common side effects of taking Ozempic include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headache, and dizziness. Other more serious side effects can include low blood sugar, pancreatitis, and kidney problems.
People who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take Ozempic. Additionally, people with type 1 diabetes and those with a history of pancreatitis should talk to their doctor before taking this medication.
