Saxenda®

At Eeva Medical Aesthetic Clinic, we stock Saxenda®, a prescription injectable medicine which contains liraglutide, designed to help overweight individuals lose weight effectively and maintain the weight after. Liraglutide is similar to a natural hormone in your body known as incretin. It works by activating specific areas of your brain that regulate your appetite. Liraglutide makes you feel less hungry, which then leads to reduced calorie intake and gradual weight loss.

WHAT IS THE USE OF SAXENDA®?

Saxenda®, when used with appropriate lifestyle changes such as increased physical activities and a reduced calorie meal plan, can help overweight adults with weight-related medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol to lose weight and keep the weight off.

Losing weight and keeping it off can reduce obesity related health complications such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and a shorter life span.

HOW TO USE SAXENDA®?

It is important to consult a doctor before starting the treatment. Saxenda® is an injectable medicine, meaning you will most likely be injecting the medicine by yourself at home. Our doctors will show you how to use this medicine safely.

Saxenda® is injected, usually once daily, under the skin in the abdomen, thighs and upper arms as directed by your doctor. You will start with a low dose and increase over the next few weeks. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. 

You should not inject this medicine directly into your vein or muscle. Never share your Saxenda® injection pen with another person.

WHO IS SUITABLE?

axenda® is suitable for:

  • Overweight adults (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
  • Adults with obesity (BMI ≥30). 

Saxenda® should be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie intake and increased physical activity.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE?

Saxenda® is not suitable for individuals with medical conditions such as medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) and allergy to liraglutide. It must not be used during pregnancy because it may harm an unborn baby. 

It is extremely important to declare any health conditions or pregnancy during the consultation with your doctor. This is so your doctor can decide if this treatment is safe for you.

ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Common side effects are usually mild and gut-related such as nausea, stomach discomfort, diarrhoea, and heartburn. 

There are some rare side effects related to Saxenda® that may be serious. Therefore, it is important to consult your doctor to make an informed decision to start the treatment. 

How Effective Is Saxenda With Weight Loss?

Saxenda has been clinically proven in  peer-reviewed studies.

In one particular research  published in 2017, 3731 individuals were monitored for 56 weeks. The patients had a BMI of 30 or higher without diabetes, or a BMI of 27 or higher with at least one weight-related medical condition. Two groups of patients were created. Both groups were told to keep their diets and exercise routines in check.

Saxenda was administered to one group and a placebo to the other. One out of every three individuals who used Saxenda lost more than 10% of their body weight. Patients who completed the experiment and lost weight with Saxenda lost an average of 9.2% of their body weight and kept it off for a year. Patients’ cardiometabolic risk factors also improved in a number of ways.

Saxenda is also approved by Singapore’s Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and the United States Food & Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) for weight loss.

Is It Painful Injecting With The Saxenda Pen?

Injecting with the Saxenda pen is not painful and well-tolerated by most patients. Patients liken the sensation to a light pinch on the skin. The nano 4mm 32 gauge needles on Saxenda injection pens are the smallest and finest available for injection pens, and about as thin as 2 strands of hair.

Will My Weight Rebound If I Stop Saxenda?

Adherence is key to managing your weight. The easier it is for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle, the better you will be at sticking to it.

That is why at SL Aesthetic Clinic, we will work with you on a plan to introduce a series of micro-changes to your lifestyle and eating habits – giving you and your body time to acclimatise and condition. Over time and with practice, these changes are eventually incorporated as part of your lifestyle habits that you can perform with ease.

Saxenda is used to make it easier for you to adhere to the plan. So if you’re already quite far down the plan and decide to stop taking Saxenda, you would have already changed your lifestyle and eating habits for the better and should not see your weight rebounding.
