Mounjaro® is the brand-name of the generic medication Tirzepatide. Mounjaro® is Health Canada-approved for managing specific symptoms and risks associated with Type 2 Diabetes. Administered through a pre-filled single-dose pen, Mounjaro® functions similarly to a naturally occurring hormone in the body that regulates blood sugar.
Mounjaro®, akin to other GLP-1 medications like Ozempic, operates as a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist. However, it stands out as a dual-action GLP-1 and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) medication. By mimicking the actions of both hormones, Mounjaro® regulates metabolism, inducing a sense of fullness and controlling hunger. Alongside a proper diet and exercise regimen, Mounjaro® proves very effective in supporting weight loss.
While Mounjaro® is not Health Canada-approved for weight loss, licensed Canadian Rocky-affiliated healthcare professionals have the discretion to prescribe it off-label if they believe it is a suitable treatment for a specific patient.

While there are no specific foods to avoid while taking Mounjaro®, individuals may experience gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea until a steady dose is achieved. Some people choose to avoid certain foods that may worsen gastrointestinal side effects.
Common side effects of Mounjaro® include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach pains, upset stomach, indigestion, injection-site reactions, fatigue, belching, gas, hair loss, and heartburn. Severe but rare side effects may include thyroid cancer, pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, low blood sugar, kidney disease, severe allergy, vision problems, rapid heartbeat, and suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

Mounjaro® should be stored in the refrigerator (2°C to 8°C) in its original packaging to protect it from light. Avoid freezing the pens. When travelling, Mounjaro® can be kept unrefrigerated for up to 21 days, with temperatures not exceeding 30°C. If stored at room temperature for an extended period of time, it should not be returned to the refrigerator.
Mounjaro® begins working after the first dose, but noticeable changes in weight or blood sugar levels may take several weeks to months with consistent use.
Yes, switching GLP-1 drugs is possible, but it's crucial to discuss with your provider due to differences in dose and dosing schedules. Individuals may experience varying side effects, and it takes several weeks for the full effect of a new medication to take hold.
Contrary to the belief that weight loss depends on willpower, obesity is considered a disease, not a decision. At Rocky, we recognize that being overweight involves the biology of the body, hence why we offer science-backed steps to support weight loss.
Common mistakes include attempting too many significant changes simultaneously, adopting unsustainable extreme diets, and following generic plans that do not consider individual your specific biology.
