Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

Why Is Ozempic Becoming The Most Popularly Prescribed 2nd Tier Treatment For Type 2?

You can’t watch a TV show without seeing Ozempic or Rybelsus commercials.

So why the big marketing push?

They both belong to the class called GLP-1 Agonists which include Trulicity and Victoza.

The early versions first hit the market in 2006 (Byetta and Bydureon).

Along the way the effectiveness/utility was improved with Victoza (2010), Trulicity (2014), Ozempic (2017) and finally Rybelsus (2020).

Being so "new" none are available as a generic.

Weight Gain On Insulin

Weight Gain On Insulin

Has anyone had problems with weight gain on insulin (I take Tresiba)? My doctors said it is an unfortunate side effect of insulin. I work out at the gym 3-4 times a week and still gained weight. Have been watching what I eat and mostly drinking water but still gaining instead of losing or maintaining. Any tips would be appreciated.

So What's The Latest New Drug For Treating Type 2?

So What's The Latest New Drug For Treating Type 2?

In May of this year the FDA approved another new drug for the treatment of Type 2.

The drugs name is Mounjaro (tirzepatide) and it's the latest to join the club of the weekly/monthly injectables that first hit the market about a decade back with Ozempic being the most popular in the particular class of drugs.

Of course, with each new drug in a given class there is usually some improvement over what the last drug did or it would hardly be worth marketing - why would anyone switch if it didn't… read more

It should go away in 2 weeks or less - common side effect, well noted when you increase the dosage.

Once Weekly Injections

Once Weekly Injections

I asked my Doc about Ozempic he thought it would be a good idea, but my insurance company and prescription assistance turned it down due to a shortage of the drug, they suggested Trulicity. So Now I am on Trulicity, and they swapped my Soliqua for Lantus, I'm on Faxiga AND Glipizide and Humalog. I'm lucky I can stand, I am nauseas all the time, I get a headache right after my Trulicity injection, I get really dizzy too (bran fog anyone?)

@A DiabetesTeam Member that is a more complicated question.
