Semaglutide is injected subcutaneously. It is available in vials for use with a needle and syringe. The recommended dose is 0.5 to 3 mg weekly injected under the skin of the thigh, abdomen, or upper arm.
Your doctor will start you on a lower dose and increase it over time to reduce your risk of side effects. You may need to take Semaglutide for several weeks or months before you see the full effect.
Do not inject into skin that is red, bruised, tender, or hard. Do not massage the injection site after injecting Semaglutide.
Semaglutide is usually injected weekly. Follow your doctor’s dosing instructions very carefully.
