Managing Common Side Effects of Semaglutide GLP-1RA Medications

When it comes to managing your health, taking medication as prescribed is crucial. However, some medications, like Semaglutide GLP-1RA, may come with side effects that can be challenging to deal with. In this blog, we’ll discuss the common side effects of Semaglutide GLP-1RA medications and strategies to help you manage them effectively.

Common Side Effects of Semaglutide

Although Semaglutide medications such as Ozempic and Wegovy are helping patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes to lose weight, there are some side effects of Semaglutide medications that can have an impact on a patient’s nutritional needs and health. Common side effects of Semaglutide GLP-1RA medications may include constipation, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. These side effects can be uncomfortable and disruptive to your daily life, but there are ways to alleviate them.

Helping Patients Mitigate Gastroparesis and Other Side Effects of Semaglutide GLP-1RA

It is best to take your semaglutide injection on the same day each week at any time of the day with or without meals.  No two people are exactly alike, and you may experiment taking the injection with or without foods and see what works best for you.

We typically recommend eating frequent, small meals with low fat content.  Foods high in protein can contribute to constipation and discomfort, which can be reduced by taking stool softeners.

Additionally, staying hydrated with plenty of fluids and avoiding spicy or greasy foods may also help minimize digestive issues.

If you experience persistent or severe side effects from Semaglutide GLP-1RA medication, it’s important to consult with your AbsolutelyThin Weight Loss Provider.
