This medication sounds great! Are there any considerations when taking Saxenda?

Although it can support a reduction in weight it does need to be used alongside a reduced calorie diet for it to be effective. Taking the medication without making changes to the diet will not result in weight loss and will increase the risk of side effects such as abdominal pain and nausea. This medication can be prescribed for up to 2 years so the individual still really needs to focus on sustainable lifestyle changes that will support long term weight loss/ maintenance.
