What is Ozempic?

Ozempic is a medication given to adults with type 2 diabetes to:

  • Lower blood sugar (glucose) levels, when used alongside exercise and diet changes
  • Reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events, like heart attacks and strokes, in people who have heart disease

Ozempic can help you lower your blood sugar levels when used alongside dietary and lifestyle changes. It causes you to secrete more insulin, helping to lower your blood sugar and reduce your risk of major cardiovascular events, like heart attacks and strokes, if you have heart disease.

You take Ozempic by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection), using a pre-filled pen. The medication is long-lasting so you usually take it once per week. As it’s a non-insulin medication, your doctor may prescribe Ozempic alongside insulin. Make sure you always use your Ozempic as directed by your doctor.

Ozempic active ingredients

The active ingredient in Ozempic is called semaglutide. Unlike many other treatments for type 2 diabetes, semaglutide is not a type of insulin, it’s a human hormone that acts on different parts of your body. Semaglutide encourages your pancreas to produce more insulin, helping to lower your blood sugar after you’ve eaten. It also appears to increase the growth of the cells in your pancreas that produce insulin (beta-cells). 

Ozempic side effects & Ozempic drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Ozempic include:

  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Stomach (abdominal) pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea

In rare instances, Ozempic can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • An increased risk of thyroid tumors, including cancerous tumors
  • Kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause itching, rashes, swelling, and difficulties breathing
  • Inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis)
  • Changes in your vision
  • Very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

Ozempic can also interact with the following medications:

  • Any medications you take orally to reduce the risk of blood clots (oral anticoagulants) like warfarin 
  • Insulin – Ozempic can be used alongside insulin, but your doctor may change the dose of insulin you take and/or how often you take insulin
  • Any other medications take to treat type 2 diabetes

Ozempic warnings & precautions

Don’t take Ozempic if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient semaglutide, or any of the other ingredients in Ozempic
