How It Works


Semaglutide is a prescription drug for weight management.

When you first start taking this drug, you may tend to overeat to compensate for your reduced appetite. For the first few weeks, we recommend that you eat from a smaller plate as your body adjusts to your new, smaller appetite.

Gradual changes are easier to adjust to and adopt as new habits over time.

How the Wonder Weight Loss Drug Works

Semaglutide differs from other weight loss treatments like Orlistat because of how it works, being a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP 1) agonist. And so before we talk about the science behind semaglutide, we first need to understand what exactly a GLP 1 agonist is

Naturally produced hormone GLP 1 is the hormone responsible for making us feel satisfied after eating. It doesn’t last very long, which is why we feel hungry a few hours after having a meal. GLP 1 agonists is a class of drugs that mimics the natural human GLP 1. This explains why weight loss is a common side effect of semaglutide as it suppresses your appetite, makes you feel full for a longer time, and thus reduces your calorie intake.

Since the active ingredient semaglutide is synthetic and structurally modified, it can last much longer than natural GLP 1. You feel satisfied after having a smaller food portion and are less likely to snack in between meals. Thanks to the mechanisms of the drug, the rate of gastric emptying slows down and it helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular events – such as heart attack – in adults with type 2 diabetes.

Recommended Dosage


Generally, the doctor will start a low dose of semaglutide injection for the patient, and gradually increase it after 4 weeks.

The dosage may be increased again after the succeeding 4 weeks depending on the patient’s response to the medication.

This will go on until the maintenance dose of 2.4 mg/week is reached.

The table is an example of the standard dosing schedule for a semaglutide injection.
