What is Saxenda?

Saxenda (liraglutide) is an injectable prescription medication which is used to help obese or overweight adults lose weight and keep the weight off. The Victoza brand of liraglutide is currently being used in the UK by diabetic patients to help treat type 2 diabetes, but has become licensed in the UK as of January 2017 as a weight loss treatment.

How does Saxenda help you lose weight?

Liraglutide is similar to a hormone which is found in the body to help control blood sugar level, insulin level and aids with digestion. It acts on receptors in the brain to make you feel fuller and less hungry.

Saxenda should be taken in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, to see the optimum benefits of the medication.

How do you inject Saxenda?

This treatment is to be injected under the skin (subcutaneous injection) in the stomach area, upper leg or upper arm, and must not be injected into a vein or muscle and kept refrigerated.

Saxenda is to be stored in the fridge at all times and protected from moisture, heat and sunlight.

When first starting Saxenda, the starting dose is 0.6mg once a day, for at least one week. You should increase your dose by 0.6mg each week until you reach the recommended dose of 3.0mg once a day. Once the recommended dose of 3.0mg in week 5 of treatment has been reached, you must keep using this dose until your treatment period ends. The dose must not be increased further.

Week 1 – 0.6mg once a day
