Thank you. Was put on Victoza and had unexplained weight loss and then developed bad Gallbladder problems gallstones etc. Never told of these side effects. Came off Victoza after hospitalization and no problems. Wish I had known

Thanks for watching and sharing that. I am trying to help people learn more about the drugs that they take so they can ask better questions from their Dr and pharmacist who is undoubtably in a hurry to get to the next patient/ pile of prescriptions.

correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they usually OD the hell out of these rats and mice to levels greatly higher than anything there going to inject into humans?

Thats how they found the issue with thyroid cancer.

Can Saxenda be used by patients dealing with depression and are on meds (valdoxan & Wellbutrin)
Amy Overton (1 month ago)
I take Wellbutrin and Saxenda. Have to see my doctor every 30 days though 😃

I wouldn't be able to answer that I can just say that there was a caution on suicidal ideation. It wasn't a huge amount of people in the trial that had that issue but it was an issue.

What's your opinion on dosage? A lot of people in support groups are reporting greater success on the lower doses rather than the full 3mg full dose. Does the higher dose do anything other than make the drug company richer?

Thank you for this video. But can you tell me.why they banned SIBUTRAMINE all over the world just because it leads to cardiac problems except heart attack, and allow these meds on sale which exposes you to different kinds of cancers and even have your gall bladder removed? Might as well bring back SIBUTRAMINE cause it gives the same effect of appetite suppression, only better and without the cancer.

I think that the people that owned the rights to the product probably were worried about liability and did not think they would make enough money to cover the liability cost.

How does increasing the amt. of insulin help you lose weight? Insulin is what drives fat storage!
Jeff the Pharmacist (5 months ago)
The mechanism that helps you lose weight is slowed gastric emptying. This makes you feel fuller. Insulin does increase fat storage.

Freda Ragusi yeah a have 30lb 2 lose!! Can u tell me how ur getting on with it! A live in glasgow and will need 2 pay 300 for it!! Thank u. X
Jeff the Pharmacist (5 months ago)
I can't speak about your personal situation, but the medication does look effective. Safe enough for the FDA :). I have had tremendous weight loss with a ketogenic diet, and I think low carb is awesome to help people keep the weight off while still feeling full if you and your doctor decide to take this route.

My doctor tells me there are brain receptors for victoza/saxenda. What physiological effects does that lead to?
Jeff the Pharmacist (6 months ago)
http://www.yourhormones.info/hormones/calcitonin/ Thats an article on it. It increases calcium resorption to the bone mostly.
Susan Koo (6 months ago)
What does increased calcitonin do to the body? Thank you, Jeff, for responding!
Jeff the Pharmacist (6 months ago)
From what I saw brain receptors may cause an increase in satiety. Also, receptors in the thyroid gland lead to increase calcitonin.

Can you do an explanation on Ozempic? why is it priced at $800,00?
Jeff the Pharmacist (6 months ago)
I did a video on Ozempic: https://youtu.be/a83zs3mwOIQ. These diabetes pens are always priced like this I think because they are under patent and marketed to doctors really heavily. Also, there is no generics and they wind up giving insurance companies rebates which is not reflected in the retail price. Often an insurance company will get a large rebate in exchange for a preferential placement in the insurance plans list of covered drugs.
