LIRAGLUTIDE FOR WEIGHT CHANGE
This new medication may be the magic bullet!
How It Works
Liraglutide (Saxena, Victoza) tells your brain that you are full. Most patients feel a normal urge to eat but on liraglutide, feel full sooner after starting their meal. That means you will eat less!
Liraglutide is injected under your skin once daily. Imagine a simple daily dose for all-day-long appetite control!
This is easier than you might imagine. Liraglutide comes in a prefilled pen-injector that attaches to a tiny 25 gauge needle. You insert the needle after cleaning the skin (usually on the front of your belly) to a depth of about 5 mm. That’s really shallow and produces a tiny pinch sensation. So simple, quick and convenient!
