Ozempic 101

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic is the brand name for semaglutide, a medication classified as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. This group of drugs is commonly referred to simply as "GLP-1s." Ozempic has been approved by Health Canada to manage and mitigate specific symptoms and risks associated with type 2 diabetes.

How Does Ozempic Work?

Ozempic functions by decelerating the digestive process, thereby prolonging feelings of fullness. As a GLP-1 receptor agonist, it mimics a naturally occurring hormone in your body that helps regulate blood sugar levels. Additionally, Ozempic may aid in weight loss by supporting these metabolic processes.

How Do You Take Ozempic?

Ozempic comes in a prefilled injection pen that contains multiple doses. If prescribed, you (or someone in your household) will select the prescribed dose, then administer the injection under the skin of your stomach, thigh, or arm once a week.


While a routine injection may sound intimidating, the Ozempic pen uses a tiny needle designed to minimize discomfort. You’ll also receive clear instructions on using the injection pen, and your Wellness Haus Medical Weight Loss Team can offer additional advice.

Do You Prescribe Ozempic for Weight Loss?

Ozempic is not Health Canada approved for weight loss. Wellness Haus healthcare professionals have the discretion to prescribe a medication off-label if they believe it is an appropriate course of treatment for a particular patient.

Side Effects

Ozempic® may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Possible thyroid tumors, including cancer. Tell your health care provider if you get a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. These may be symptoms of thyroid cancer. In studies with rodents, Ozempic® and medicines that work like Ozempic® caused thyroid tumors, including thyroid cancer. It is not known if Ozempic® will cause thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in people.

  • Do not use Ozempic® if you or any of your family have ever had MTC, or if you have an endocrine system condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).
