    There are other opinions on this drug that aren't as positive . Europe wont hardly prescribe it , but in good ole U. S . The F.D.A. Is bought and paid for by big pharma .

    I will say this. I do take a GLP-1 medication for diabetes it has tremendously helped me to the point I no longer need insulin. There are many side effects from different medications. I myself had to take lower doses as I could not eat. I never felt hungry and when I did it was minimal. I think k having a doctor that is knowledgeable and tenacious is necessary.

    I will do absolutely everything to avoid pills and meds. I was on heartburn meds daily for 6 months and wasn't about to be reliant on those forever. I used that time to work out what foods were triggering it and I have hardly touched the meds in over a year.

    a few things

    1) do not take meds for a condition you do not have, such as is the case of taking this diabetic med, and you ain't a diabetic

    2) no pharma company should prescribe meds over the phone by talking with one of thier doctors

    3) only your primary care doctor knows your personal health, anyone can easily lie to get what they want from a phone-in doctor.

    4) to obtain meds under false pretenses such as obtaining ozempic, made for and continues to cause shortage for those who ARE diabetics, and NEED this med.

    5) i feel no sympathy for the pain, and suffering these nit wits are going thru. people getting this med from an online doctor at the pharma companies, are (to me) stealing it from those in dire need for it, to control thier blood sugars.

    6) finally, no pharma company should ever have a "call in line" to talk with the drug maker company doctor to be prescribed meds...this should be your own primary care physician's duty and resposibility.....to by pass your own doctor, makes you at fault for your troubles.
