Saxenda is a once a day weight loss injection. It mimics a naturally-occurring hormone that your intestine secretes when you eat food. The hormone helps to regulate the levels of sugar in your blood and slows down the emptying of your stomach. This results in feelings of satiety and a reduction in sensations of hunger and desire to eat.
Saxenda should be used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.
Saxenda reaches its maximum effect 11 hours after dosing.
