DOES TIRZEPATIDE WORK LIKE PHENTERMINE?
Unlike phentermine, Tirzepatide is not a stimulant. While other weight loss medications, like phentermine, have stimulating effects that help curb your appetite, Tirzepatide works in a different way (see above).
DOES TIRZEPATIDE WORK AS AN APPETITE SUPPRESANT?
Yes, Tirzepatide helps to curb your appetite. In addition to slowing gastric emptying to make you feel full for longer, GLP-1 also plays a critical role in how your appetite is regulated.
Tirzepatide is considered to be safe and effective when used as indicated. But every medication comes with risk of adverse side effects. The most common side effects of using Tirzepatide may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach (abdominal) pain, and constipation. That is why we start everyone on a low dosage and titrate slowly.
You should notify your healthcare practitioner if you get changes in vision, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), kidney problems, pancreatitis, or any serious allergic reactions. Symptoms of low blood sugar include sudden sweating, shaking, fast heartbeat, hunger, blurred vision, dizziness, or tingling hands/feet. Tirzepatide shouldn’t be used if you or your family have a history of certain thyroid cancers such as Medullary thyroid cancer or endocrine neoplasia type 2 .Tirzepatide should not be used in people with a history of pancreatitis. Tirzepatide should be used cautiously for people on other blood sugar lowering medications.
HOW DO I ADMINISTER TIRZEPATIDE?
Administer TIRZEPATIDE subcutaneously to the abdomen once a week. It may help to use different injection sites around the navel each week.
WHAT IS THE DOSE OF TIRZEPATIDE?
