What is Saxenda®?

Saxenda® is a weight loss medicine that contains the active substance liraglutide. It is similar to a natural occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is released from the intestine after a meal. Saxenda® works by acting on receptors in the brain that control your appetite, causing you to feel fuller and less hungry.

What is Saxenda® used for?

Saxenda® is used for weight loss in addition to diet and exercise in adults aged 18 and above who have:

  • BMI of 30 kg/m² or greater (obese) or
  • BMI or 27 kg/m² and less than 30kg/m² (overweight) and weight related health problems (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal levels or fats in the blood or breathing problems during sleep called ‘obstructive sleep apnoea’).

BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measure of your weight in relation to your height.

You should only continue using Saxenda® if you have lost at least 5% of your initial body weight after 12 weeks on the 3mg/day dose. Consult your healthcare professional before you continue.

For more information on Saxenda® read the Patient Information Leaflet

For full usage instructions, please read the manufacturers full guide.

As with all medications, Saxenda® may cause side effects, although not everyone will experience them. Click here to learn more

– The active substance is liraglutide. 1 ml solution for injection contains 6 mg liraglutide. One pre-filled pen contains 18 mg liraglutide. – The other ingredients are disodium phosphate dihydrate, propylene glycol, phenol, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide (for pH adjustment) and water for injections.

The most common side effects with Saxenda affect the digestive system: nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and constipation. These should subside after a few days or weeks.

Other common side effects include:

  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Dizziness
  • Insomnia
  • Injection site reactions such as bruising, pain or a rash

Another side effect can be hypoglycaemia. This is the medical name for low blood sugar. This is more likely to be a side effect for patients who have type 2 diabetes but can happen in other patients. The signs of low blood sugar are: cold sweat, pale skin, headache, fast heartbeat, feeling sleepy or weak, feeling nervous and difficulty concentrating, among other symptoms.

An uncommon side effect is pancreatitis. This is a serious and potentially life-threatening illness. Symptoms include severe, persistent pain in the abdomen and nausea and vomiting. If you have these symptoms stop using Saxenda and contact your doctor immediately.

Please report any side effects to your doctor or pharmacist.
