What is Ozempic?

Ozempic is a prescription liquid solution that is used to manage blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes patients. Ozempic contains semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1) agonist that may be used alongside certain other diabetes medications for maximum benefits. Ozempic is often prescribed with diet and exercise to increase effectiveness. Along with blood glucose management, Ozempic is used to lower the risk of cardiovascular complications in adults experiencing cardiovascular disease with diabetes.

Semaglutide is only approved by the FDA to improve blood sugar levels in those with type 2 diabetes. It is not approved for treating diabetic ketoacidosis or type 1 diabetes. Additionally, your doctor may decide to prescribe a different antidiabetic if you have a history of pancreatitis. At an online Canadian pharmacy like Canada Pharmacy Depot, you can save significantly on brand-name and generic Ozempic. Our Ozempic knowledge base also offers detailed educational material for learning more about this antidiabetic medication. If you are affected by poor blood sugar management, ask your doctor about Ozempic today.

A generic version of Ozempic is not currently available. For a generic version of Ozempic to be approved, it would have to demonstrate bioequivalence. This means that it would need to use the same active ingredient, semaglutide, and have the same therapeutic effects as brand-name Ozempic. A generic Ozempic would potentially help patients save on their medication. Until generic semaglutide becomes available, thousands of Americans are turning to online Canadian pharmacies like Canada Pharmacy Depot to save on their diabetes treatment. 

When will a generic be available in the U.S.?

According to the current patents held by Novo Nordisk, the earliest possible date for a generic version of Ozempic to hit the market is December of 2031. This is because there are currently more than 200 international patents and 25 U.S. patents on Ozempic. The good news is that generic versions of drugs typically become available in other countries first. As a customer of Canada Pharmacy Depot, you will be the first to know when generic semaglutide is here. 

Ozempic from Canada

The high cost of Ozempic in the U.S. has caused may Americans to turn to Canadian pharmacies for their diabetes medication. Buying your prescription meds from across the border has many advantages. Firstly, drug regulations in many other countries keep prices from skyrocketing, allowing more patients in need access to treatment. In addition to lower costs, reputable online pharmacies from Canada also typically offer generic versions before pharmacies in the U.S. 

Canada Pharmacy Depot also offers express shipping with short delivery times of 8-14 business days. Switch to an online Canadian pharmacy today to experience why thousands of Americans are turning to Canada Pharmacy Depot for their treatment needs.

How much does Ozempic Cost?

Without insurance, the average cost of Ozempic from your local pharmacy is approximately $50 weekly, which can easily add up to more than $2500 per year. Even with coupons, buying Ozempic from pharmacies in the U.S. can cost more than $880 per order. By ordering Ozempic through an online Canadian pharmacy, you can expect to pay just a fraction of this cost without sacrificing safety and efficacy.

Ozempic cost in Canada

As previously mentioned, Ozempic is significantly less expensive if you get it from a Canadian online pharmacy compared to the U.S. Customers of Canada Pharmacy Depot can expect to save up to 90 percent and have their prescriptions delivered right to the door. The cost of Ozempic in Canada will depend on several factors, including your treatment needs and your prescribed dose. Since the price of Ozempic may fluctuate based on supply and stock factors, it is recommended that you check this Ozempic drug page for the most updated price. 

Why is Ozempic cheaper from Canada?

The biggest reason Ozempic is cheaper in Canada compared to the U.S. is that the Canadian government controls the price of pharmaceutical medications with the PMPRB, which stands for the Patented Medicine Prices Review Board. In the United States, the government does not directly regulate drug prices, and only when a drug's patent expires can a generic form enter the market. This means that low-cost alternatives are not widely available. If you are looking to save on Ozempic, look no further than Canada Pharmacy Depot!

Ozempic for Weight Loss

Ozempic may be used off-label as a weight loss medication for people with type 2 diabetes. Although Ozempic is not FDA-approved for weight management, your doctor may explain why semaglutide can help you lose excess fat. Since Ozempic is not FDA-approved for losing weight, it is important to only use this medication for weight loss if directed by your doctor. Failure to do so may result in adverse effects and health complications. But how does Ozempic help with weight management?

According to one study, semaglutide reduces appetite and food cravings after a dose, which leads to less food intake. This leads to better control over what you eat, and researchers also found that semaglutide use is linked to overall appetite suppression and a preference for less fatty foods. [1] Again, weight loss is considered a side effect of Ozempic and not its intended purpose. Only take semaglutide for weight loss if your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so.

Side Effects

Ozempic may cause mild and severe side effects. The most common side effects of Ozempic include: 

  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach pain
  • Constipation
  • Passing gas
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 

Generally, these milder side effects will go away within one or two weeks. However, speak to your doctor right away if any of these side effects linger on for more than two weeks. Although severe side effects of Ozempic are rare, they may include thyroid cancer, pancreatitis, hypoglycemia, kidney damage, and eye problems (diabetic retinopathy). Gallbladder disease is also a potential severe side effect of Ozempic. Due to the risk of thyroid cancer, your doctor will not prescribe Ozempic if you have a family history of MTC (medullary thyroid carcinoma) or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. Signs of a thyroid tumor while taking semaglutide include:

  • Trouble swallowing
  • Trouble breathing
  • A mass or lump in the neck
  • Developing a hoarse voice

Once again, severe side effects of Ozempic may be life-threatening, especially when not treated promptly. If any of the aforementioned side effects occur, speak to your doctor or get emergency medical attention immediately.

FAQs

How does Ozempic work?

After eating, the body naturally releases insulin to transport sugar from the bloodstream to the cells for energy. Patients with type 2 diabetes may not produce enough insulin, which breaks down the process of getting energy from food. Ozempic helps increase the amount of insulin in the body, which essentially helps lower your blood sugar levels. Visit our Ozempic blog for more details on Ozempic's mechanism of action.

What happens if you take too much Ozempic?

Overdosing on semaglutide may cause a life-threatening condition called hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Using a glucometer, you can monitor yourself for symptoms of hypoglycemia. If this complication occurs, call your healthcare provider immediately.

Where do I inject Ozempic?

Typically, your doctor will recommend injecting Ozempic in the front of your thighs, your abdomen, or your upper arm. You will want to alternate between these three locations and avoid injecting into the same place twice in a row. If you have any questions about the most effective place to inject semaglutide, consult your doctor or visit our blog about Ozempic for more information.

How does Ozempic help you lose weight?

Ozempic decreases your appetite after a dose, which means you will want to consume less food per meal. When you eat fewer fatty foods, your body will naturally shed excess pounds. Ozempic is not approved for weight loss, but your doctor may use Ozempic as an off-label method of helping you with weight management.

What are the side effects of Ozempic?

The most common side effect of semaglutide is nausea, and this is more likely to occur for first-time users. Other common side effects of Ozempic are headache, heartburn, and diarrhea. Severe side effects of Ozempic are less common but may include thyroid cancer and kidney damage. Talk to your doctor for a complete list of Ozempic side effects.
