Hello, my doctor mentioned Ozempic to me at my last appointment in passing but didn't really go into detail about it. I'm curious about it, apparently it exists in pill form? If I could stop doing injections or at least cut down to once a week that would be fabulous!

Does anyone know anything about it? Are any of you on it? Have you had any side effects?

Thanks so much!

@oklahomagirl I wouldn't use this as I'm happy with my pump, but I'm interested to hear what others think about it

@oklahomagirl @diabeticsurv  I'm doing 1 mg of Ozempic. One injection a week. I started 3 months ago at 0.25 mg the 1st month and 0.5 the 2nd and now 1 mg today so that I'd get used to it. When I was at 0.25 mg I didn't see any improvement in my blood sugar levels. I didn't start seeing an improvement until 0.5. I haven't had any unpleasant side effects, but I've lost around 15 pounds. Hope that helps you.

@nomorenomore‍   That's awesome to hear you are having such a great experience.  I'm new to the T2 game.  In addition to Metformin and Jardiance, Ozempic was added a few months back.  It does work well to keep my spikes down but the side effects for me have been really rough.  I am on 0.5 and have not been able to make it to the 1mg mark yet.  Every time I try, I have major intestinal issues for days.

@jamieh Hey jamie, that stinks you've been have a rough time with it! Oh year, I had similar problems with metformin. That's so funny how we all react differently to different things.
