Compounded Semaglutide in Fayetteville, NC

To achieve healthy weight loss with the aid of physician supervision, you may want to consider Semaglutide injections at Cape Fear Aesthetics. We help men and women in Raleigh, Fayetteville, Cary and the surrounding areas of North Carolina reach their weight loss goals through an effective and safe weight loss program.

What is compounded semaglutide?

Semaglutide imitates the Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) hormone in the body, which is the hormone tasked with controlling and stabilizing blood sugar levels and managing our hunger and fullness cues. These weight loss injections increase insulin secretion which in turn increase sugar metabolism. They also delay gastric emptying which provides a reduced appetite and therefore help you lose weight at a steady pace while also maintaining the weight loss long term. Compounded Semaglutide, which combines traditional semaglutide with other body-safe vitamins, such as B6, offers the same results but at a fraction of the cost. It also allows the individual to tailor the medication to their specific needs.

What are the doses and how do they work?

Compounded semaglutide is injected weekly. The dose will be prescribed by your doctor and the injection spot will be your abdomen, thigh or upper arm. This product is available as an injector pen that can be used at home or under the supervision of a medical professional.

What should I tell my provider before I take this medication?

Your provider will need to know if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Eye disease, vision problems
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Endocrine Tumors
  • History of Pancreatitis
  • Stomach problems
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • Breast-feeding

How should I use this medication?

This medication is used once a week (every 7 days) and it’s injected under the skin of your upper leg(thigh), stomach area, or upper arm. Your provider will guide you through administering the medication and become comfortable to do this at home. Make sure you are taking your medication at regular intervals and not take it more than directed.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can within 5 days after the missed dose. Then continue to take your next dose at your regular weekly time. If it has been longer than 5 days after the missed dose, do not take the missed dose. Take the next dose at your regular time. Do not take double or extra doses. If you have questions or concerns about a missed dose, contact Cape Fear Aesthetics medical team for advice.
