Saxenda® is the first licensed prescription injectable medicine, that when used in conjunction with a low calorie meal plan and increase physical activity, can help you lose weight. At Parkside, this is medically supervised by one of our Consultant Bariatric Surgeon, Professor Marcus Reddy.
How it works
Saxenda® is different from weight management products that you have taken in the past. It works like a hormone the body produces naturally that regulates appetite, knows as glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1). By activating areas of your brain that regulate appetite, Saxenda® may make you feel less hungry, which can lead to lower calorie intake. Saxenda® can help you not only lose weight, but also keep it off.
How Saxenda is taken
A once-daily, self-injectable medicine, Saxenda® comes in a prefilled pen. It’s the first and only licensed prescription weight-loss medicine in a pen that helps you lose weight.
