I was sick with a stomach virus and was just scared to use it. I was on 0.6mg.
If I missed a week of taking Saxenda, do I start over or continue from my usual dosage?

You'll need to contact your doctor for instructions on how to restart your medication.
"What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss your daily dose of Saxenda, use the dose as soon as you remember. Then take your next daily dose as usual on the following day. Do not take an extra dose of Saxenda or increase your dose on the following day to make up for your missed dose.
If you miss your dose of Saxenda for 3 days or more, call your health care provider to talk about how to restart your treatment."
