Saxenda 101

What is Saxenda?

Saxenda is a brand-name version of the generic medication liraglutide. Saxenda is Health Canada approved and clinically proven to help with weight loss and belongs to a group of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These drugs limit your appetite by acting like a hormone that slows down your gut, making you feel less hungry. People on Saxenda lost an average of 9% of their body weight after one year.

How Does Saxenda Work?

Saxenda works for weight loss by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which reduces appetite and slows down the movement of food through your stomach. This may make you feel full longer and therefore eat less, which can lead to weight loss. When paired with healthy food choices and regular exercise, Saxenda can assist you in reaching and maintaining your long-term weight goals.

Do You Prescribe Saxenda for Weight Loss?

Yes. If appropriate, adults can get Saxenda (liraglutide) through our weight loss program. Currently, our weight loss program is only available for adults 18 years and older.

Who Is Eligible?

Saxenda is Health Canada approved for weight loss in adults with a BMI of  ≥30 or a BMI of ≥27 and at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Saxenda is supposed to be taken in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and greater physical activity.

Side Effects
