In researching the effects of Saxenda and the benefits of using it I read that even after stopping the use of the needles there's no weight gain... with a healthy diet and moderate physical activity off course. I'm curious to get feedback from anyone who has stopped the needles.
I recently asked my endo the same question. She informed me that if I came off all weight that had been lost would slowly be gained back over time, therefore I am on the shot for life.
Yes, I have taken it for nine months and lost 24 pounds. I was not careful and then went off of it and started eating again and gained a good amount of the weight back. I am taking it again now because it is one of the most effective meds I have ever found.
My two daughters were both on saxenda and stopped and quite quickly gained the weight back. I just stopped it, after being on it for 15 months. I"ve only been off it for a week so far, I am able to eat more than I was when I was on it, SO I'm pretty darn sure that weight will come back on for me too, so because of that, I"M reading up more to find out if it is safe for me to stay on it at least for another year.
Yes. Stopped for ten days after taking since September (lost 23lbs in total). Have put on 4lbs in 10 days. Starting injections again today. Saxenda is the only method that has helped me lose so I won't quit now
