Product Details


Ozempic is a medication for Type 2 diabetes. It is taken as a weekly injection. The main ingredient is Semaglutide, a type of GLP-1rA drug. Ozempic works in several ways. Firstly, it helps the pancreas release insulin. This lowers blood sugar by moving it into cells. Secondly, it reduces the sugar the liver makes. Lastly, it slows food digestion, which helps control blood sugar spikes and makes you feel full longer. This feeling of fullness can lead to weight loss.

Before you buy Ozempic, it is important that you talk to your healthcare provider about its effectiveness and potential side effects.

Ozempic Medication Administration Guide:

Ozempic is administered as a weekly subcutaneous (under the skin) injection.

You can inject it into your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. Avoid the area within a 2-inch radius of your navel when injecting into your abdomen.

To prevent lipodystrophy, use different injection sites each time. Most people rotate between these three locations.

Injection Procedure:

Prepare Your Pen: Ensure that the Ozempic medicine in your pen is clear and colorless.

Attach a New Needle: Tear off the paper tab and securely attach a new needle by pushing and turning it. Remove both needle caps.

Check Pen Flow: Make sure the pen is working correctly by turning the dose selector until the dose counter shows the flow check symbol. Hold the dose button until the dose counter shows 0 (zero) and a drop appears at the needle tip.

Select the Dose: Adjust the dose selector to match your prescribed dose (0.25 mg or 0.5 mg for the red-label pen, 1 mg for the blue-label pen).

Administering the Injection: Insert the needle under your skin, press and hold the dose button, and wait until the dose counter reaches 0. Then, count to 6 before carefully removing the needle. This ensures that you've properly administered your entire Ozempic dose.


The active ingredient in Ozempic is Semaglutide.


Do not take more than one Ozempic injection each week. This is the rule set by the company that makes the medicine. Ozempic is not for losing weight. Weight loss might happen if you change your diet and exercise more. Your doctor and prescription will guide you about this before you start using Ozempic.

Tell your doctor if you have had:

  • liver or kidney disease
  • gallbladder disease
  • certain types of thyroid cancer
  • a specific genetic syndrome
  • pancreatitis
  • serious depression

This includes thoughts of suicide or self-harm. Do this before you start taking Ozempic.

If you want to get pregnant, stop using Ozempic two months before you try to conceive.

Keep Ozempic that you are not using in the fridge.

  • The temperature should be between 36°F and 46°F (2°C to 8°C).
  • Once you start using a pen, you can keep it at room temperature. This is between 59°F and 86°F (15°C to 30°C). You can also keep it in the fridge.
  • Do not freeze it.

Throw away any Ozempic pen after 56 days, even if it still has medicine in it.

What happens if you use ozempic after 56 days?

Ozempic (semaglutide) is used to treat type 2 diabetes. It's important to use it within 56 days after opening. Using it after 56 days can reduce its effectiveness, which may lead to poorer blood sugar control. This happens because the medication might degrade over time. To ensure Ozempic is safe and works well, follow its expiration guidelines. If your Ozempic pen is over 56 days old, it's best to dispose of it and use a new one. For advice specific to your health, always talk to your healthcare provider.

Can I take ozempic after gallbladder removal?

Taking Ozempic after gallbladder removal appears to be generally safe. Ozempic, an injectable medication used to control blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes, can still be an effective solution for managing blood sugar even after a gallbladder removal. The absence of a gallbladder does not seem to affect the absorption or effectiveness of Ozempic. However, it's crucial to monitor your glucose levels closely and inform your doctor of any changes.

Side effects from the Ozempic pen may occur. Users might experience symptoms such as:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain
  • constipation
  • heartburn
  • burping

If you experience side effects from Ozempic, consider discontinuing its use and consult your doctor.
