Frequently Asked Questions
What is Saxenda, and for what purpose is it utilized?
Saxenda is a medication utilized in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regimen to aid in weight management for adults:
1. who suffer from obesity (with a body mass index – BMI – of 30 or higher);
2. who are overweight (with a BMI between 27 and 30) and have weight-related issues such as diabetes, high levels of fat in the blood, hypertension, or obstructive sleep apnea (regular interruptions of breathing during sleep).
BMI is a metric that reflects an individual’s weight in relation to their height.
The active ingredient in Saxenda is liraglutide.
How should Saxenda be administered?
Saxenda is provided as a pre-filled pen containing an injectable solution. A prescription is required to obtain this medication.
Saxenda is injected once daily, ideally at a consistent time each day. The injection is administered subcutaneously in the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen.
The initial dose is 0.6 mg per day, increasing by 0.6 mg each week until reaching a maximum of 3.0 mg daily.
If patients have not lost a minimum of 5% of their starting body weight after 12 weeks on a 3 mg daily dose of Saxenda, the treatment should be discontinued.
The necessity of continuing treatment should be re-evaluated by a physician annually.
What is the mechanism of action for Saxenda?
Saxenda’s active component, liraglutide, is a ‘glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist,’ which is already approved in the EU as Victoza at lower dosages (up to 1.8 mg per day) for treating type 2 diabetes.
The precise mechanism by which Saxenda aids in weight reduction is not entirely understood.
However, it seems to impact the brain’s appetite-regulating areas by binding to GLP-1 receptors in brain cells, subsequently increasing the sensation of fullness and decreasing hunger.
What advantages of Saxenda have been demonstrated in clinical trials?
Saxenda’s efficacy in reducing body weight has been demonstrated in five main studies involving over 5,800 overweight or obese patients lasting up to 56 weeks, in which Saxenda was compared to a placebo.
As part of a weight loss program, patients in the studies received counseling and guidance on diet and exercise.
When the outcomes of the five studies were combined, a daily dose of 3 mg of Saxenda resulted in a 7.5% reduction in body weight compared to a 2.3% reduction in patients receiving the placebo.
Patients treated with Saxenda experienced a continuous decrease in body weight during the first 40 weeks of treatment, after which the weight loss was maintained.
Weight loss was more significant in women than in men.
When the data from the primary studies were re-analyzed using a more conservative approach that assumed patients who did not complete the study (about 30%) would not have experienced any improvement, similar but smaller weight reductions with Saxenda were observed.
What risks are associated with Saxenda?
The most frequently reported side effects of Saxenda (which may impact more than 1 in 10 people) include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation.
