Description

The medication comes as a liquid inside a prefilled injection pen. Saxenda is an FDA-approved, prescription injectable medicine that, when used in conjunction with a low-calorie diet and increased exercise, may help some adults with excess weight who have weight-related medical problems lose weight and keep it off. It is for use in adults only. Saxenda contains the active drug liraglutide. It belongs to a group of drugs called GLP-1 agonists.

Dosage:

Patients should follow a 4-week dose escalation to reach the clinically efficacious 3 mg dose. The 4-week dose-escalation period can reduce the likelihood of gastrointestinal symptoms. The Saxenda® starting dose is 0.6 mg per day for 1 week.1 Patients increase the dose by 0.6 mg each week until the full maintenance dose of 3 mg is reached.
