What is the difference between Saxenda (Liraglutide) and Ozempic (Semaglutide)?
Saxenda (Liraglutide 3.0mg) and Ozempic (semaglutide) are both GLP-1 analogues, which means they behave like the naturally produced hormone called Glucagon Like Peptide (GLP-1). Semaglutide has a longer duration of action than Liraglutide, hence it is a once-weekly injection.
Saxenda has a license to specifically treat weight-loss, whereas Semaglutide, although a licensed medication and very effective in treating weight loss, is awaiting full approval to treat weight loss , its usage is currently limited to off label use.
Semaglutide is a once weekly injection whereas Liraglutide 3mg (Saxenda) injection has to be given every day. This because Semaglutide has a longer duration of action in the body.
The current available maximum dose of semaglutide (Ozempic) is 1mg, which is licensed to treat diabetes. The anticipated dose to treat weight loss weight loss will be 2.4mg, where another drug (Wegovy) is in the process of approval.
What is off-label prescribing?
Off-label prescribing is when you are prescribed a licensed medication to treat a condition not specifically stated or listed on its product license.
Prescribing outside of these guidelines included with the license of any medicine means that it is being used “off-label”. Our physicians at the CLEO Clinic will only prescribe off-label if they believe that the medication will be effective at treating the condition in question, and that the advantages outweigh any potential risks.
Off-label prescribing is fairly common and is a safe practice as long as the patient’s condition, medical history, allergies and current medicines are taken into consideration. Being prescribed a medicine off-label doesn’t mean that the drug is unlicensed – these two terms mean very different things and shouldn’t be confused with each other.
