What is Ozempic®? +

Ozempic is the brand-name of the generic medication semaglutide, categorized as a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist (GLP-1). Ozempic is Health Canada-approved for managing specific symptoms and risks associated with Type 2 Diabetes. Ozempic functions similarly to a naturally occurring hormone in the body that regulates blood sugar.

How does Ozempic® work? +

Ozempic functions by decelerating the digestion process, contributing to an extended feeling of fullness. As a GLP-1 receptor agonist, it emulates a hormone naturally produced by the body to regulate blood sugar, potentially aiding in weight loss.

Will my insurance cover the cost? +

To determine insurance coverage for Ozempic, you will need to contact your insurance provider directly. Most insurances in Canada do not cover Ozempic for weight loss as this is off-label use. The cost of all GLP-1 medications on Rocky is separate from the initial consultation cost. We can provide you with a detailed invoice upon request, which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement purposes.

Important Safety Information: Ozempic treats type 2 diabetes but may be prescribed off-label for weight loss, if appropriate. Ozempic may have serious side effects, including possible thyroid tumors. Do not use if you or your family have a history of a type of thyroid cancer called MTC or MEN 2.

Got questions?

We have answers.

How much does Ozempic cost?

+

The cost of your Ozempic can vary based on your insurance coverage (if covered). To determine insurance coverage for Ozempic, you will need to contact your insurance provider directly. Most insurances in Canada do not cover Ozempic for weight loss as this is off-label use. The cost of all GLP-1 medications on Rocky is separate from our initial consultation cost. We can provide you with a detailed invoice upon request, which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement purposes.

Are there foods to avoid while taking Ozempic?

+

Generally, there are no foods labelled as off-limits while taking Ozempic. We do advise eating a healthy and well-balanced diet along with exercise when possible. If prescribed Ozempic, it might be advisable to avoid certain foods on days when doses are increased due to potential gastrointestinal side effects like nausea. Foods causing gas or bloating may be best avoided on days of dose escalation.

How is Rocky responding to medication shortages?

+

Due to high demand, Novo Nordisk, the manufacturer of Ozempic, anticipates supply shortages. Patients may face challenges filling prescriptions for Ozempic through 2024 and potentially beyond. Rocky and our team of providers are taking additional steps to support patients, including partnerships with compounding facilities to provide generic Ozempic (semaglutide). Prescribers will also work with all patients to adjust treatment plans, where necessary, potentially prescribing alternate GLP-1 medications if clinically appropriate.

What are the most common Ozempic side effects?

+

Ozempic's side effects are typically mild and often improve within the initial weeks of treatment. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea, and more. While severe side effects are rare, they may include thyroid cancer, pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, rapid heartbeat, severe allergy, low blood sugar, vision problems, kidney disease, and suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Refer to the product monograph for complete safety details.

How do I schedule a call with my provider?

+

After the initial consultation, you will be able to schedule a call with a licensed Canadian prescriber. To schedule a follow-up call with your Rocky healthcare provider, simply send a message to your prescriber via our messaging portal. We will then send you a link to schedule a visit at your convenience.

Is weight loss about willpower? Or is diet and exercise enough?

+

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.

What are some common mistakes people make when they try to lose weight?

+

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.

Do you prescribe Ozempic for weight loss?

+

While Ozempic 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. Ozempic's impact on blood sugar and appetite regulation may contribute to resetting the biological set point for weight maintenance.

What is Ozempic’s dosing?

+

Ozempic dosing initiates at a low level, gradually increasing over the initial months until a consistent dose is established. The dosage is determined by your Rocky licensed prescriber based on your specific needs, goals and tolerance. For example, the minimum Ozempic dose is 0.25 mg once a week, with a maximum of 2.0 mg once a week.

How do you take Ozempic?

+

Ozempic is administered through a prefilled injection pen containing multiple doses. You or a household member can select the prescribed dose and inject it under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or arm once a week (on the same day). Despite the notion of routine injections, the Ozempic pen employs a small needle designed for minimal discomfort. Clear instructions are provided, and your prescriber and/or pharmacist can offer additional guidance.
