Semaglutide is generic for both Wegoovy and Ozempic. It is a human based glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1) receptor agonist prescribed as an adjunct to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adult patients with a BMI that is considered outside a healthy range. It works by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas and decreasing the amount of glucagon produced by the liver. This combination results in reduced hunger, leading to weight loss.
