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.

Is anyone here on Ozempic and what do think of it. I have been on it for about 6 weeks. It seems to give me really good glucose control for about 5 weeks but Glucose but then the last two days it appears to rise

Hello @Mike400my‍, thank you for your question. I've moved it to this discussion about Ozempic for more visibility.  emoticon cute

For those of you who have been on Ozempic, what has your experience been like? Has it helped to improve your glycemic control? Did or have you had any side effects? Did it seem to wear off like it has for @Mike400my‍?

I did use Ozempic and initially I had very good results; stabilized my BS and I did lose some weight. Unfortunately, after about 4 months my body developed an allergic reaction and I had to switch over to Victoza; so far so good and it's been more than 6 month. The biggest difference for me was Ozempic is 1 injection a week and Victoza is daily injections.
