It also reduces hunger, regulates appetite, & increases feelings of satiety, making it easier to reduce calorie intake. In addition, Semaglutide has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels, triglycerides, as well as overall mortality rates in people with type 2 diabetes.

Tirzepatide is a medication that was recently approved for use in adults with type 2 diabetes. It is a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist (RA). This means it works by imitating not one, but two unique incretin hormones produced by the human body. It works by stimulating GLP-1 production in the body, which helps the body produce more insulin when needed. GIP has been shown to decrease food intake & increase energy expenditure therefore resulting in weight reductions & when combined with GLP-1 receptor agonism, may result in greater effects on markers of metabolic dysregulation such as body weight, glucose, & lipides. Additionally, Tirzepatide has been found to lower fasting blood glucose levels & increase weight loss in participants who were overweight or obese at the start of clinical trials. This suggests that it may be beneficial for those looking to shed excess pounds quickly & safely. This medication has all the benefits of Semaglutide for weight loss with appetite suppression but it also adds the component of fat loss with it, in other words, you’ll lose weight & keep it off for the long haul.
What else does it do:
Who should not or those to be cautious taking these medications:
Tirzepatide has been called Semaglutide 2.0 because patients have lost more weight in the same period of time, felt a heavier suppression of appetite, and showed fewer side effects. This is undoubtedly Semaglutide 2.0 with enhanced upgrades and bug fixes. Tirzepatide demonstrated a greater decrease in HbA1c and weight loss than Semaglutide.
Did you know that prescription drug prices in the U.S. are an average of 2.5 times higher than other Western countries? With this in mind, you might be wondering if switching to a generic drug is right for you. Let’s take a look at the differences between the generic and brand-name versions of prescription drugs.
A generic drug is a medication with the exact same active ingredient as the brand-name drug, is taken the same way and offers the same effect. They do not need to contain the same inactive ingredients as the name-brand product and they can only be sold after the brand-name drug’s patent expires.
There are only two main differences between generic and brand-name drugs:
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sets standards for generic drugs to ensure they work the same way and have the same benefits and risks as their brand-name counterparts.
Generic drugs must match the brand-name versions in the following ways :
A generic drug must be “bioequivalent” to the brand-name product, meaning they have to be chemically similar. A recent study that compared generics to brand-name drugs found on average only a 3.5% difference in absorption into the body.
Yes. The FDA requires a generic drug manufacturer to follow the same standards as the brand-name manufacturing process. They are often made in the same facilities. The agency conducts on-site inspections each year to make sure the manufacturers are following the rules.
Generic medications on average are 80–85% less expensive than brand-name medications.
Always talk to your doctor about the best course of your treatment. Some medicines don't have a generic version but your doctor or pharmacist can see if there are alternatives you can try. You may find the savings are well worth the change.
Besides switching to a generic, here are a few ways you may be able to cut costs on your prescription:
Navigating the price of prescription drugs can be challenging, but remember:
