Wegovy represents the brand variant of semaglutide, an FDA-sanctioned treatment predominantly for obesity. This injectable drug functions by replicating a hormone that communicates with the brain to regulate appetite. It belongs to the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists family, a classification also employed for diabetes care.
The weight management potentials of semaglutide, as seen in brands like Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus, Trulicity, Mounjaro, and Saxenda, initially catered to diabetics but have since evolved into a prominent weight reduction solution. While its primary target audience is obese individuals, many who aren’t classified as such are also using it for weight reduction. Yet, like numerous medications, it has its drawbacks. Several adverse effects have surfaced, leading to a wave of Wegovy-related lawsuits nationwide.
