What is Semaglutide/Tirzepatide?

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonists that bind and activate the GLP-1 receptor. They mimic the GLP-1 hormone, which is released in our stomach when we eat. GLP-1 regulates glucose that is released after eating carbohydrates or fats. GLP-1 also enhances insulin secretion in the presence of elevated glucose levels. It slows gastric (stomach) emptying, which in turn helps reduce food intake. In higher amounts, it also interacts with the parts of the brain that signal you to feel full and suppresses your appetite. It can cause significant weight loss, especially when combined with diet and exercise. It also reduces the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer in obese or overweight people.

Side effects of GLP-1 agonists are typically mild with the most common one being gastrointestinal (GI) issues, especially when starting the medication. These include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or bloating. This is why we include the medication Zofran to help with these side effects. Additional symptoms include fatigue, dizziness, and headache. Reducing the side effects begins with starting on a low dose (.25 mg) for the first four weeks and titrating the dose up every four weeks as tolerated.

Who should or should not take Semaglutide/Tirzepatide?

The FDA recommends using it for weight loss if you meet one of the following criteria:
You have a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or greater and at least one weight-related condition, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, or if you have a BMI of 30 or greater.

You should not take a GLP-1 agonist if you have a history of medullary thyroid cancer, Multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN2), or a history of pancreatitis or gallbladder disease. It is not safe to take during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
