HOW DOES SAXENDA WORK?
Weight loss when using Saxenda® is associated with the regulation of appetite and the amount of food consumed. Appetite was assessed before and within 5 hours after the standardized breakfast; unrestricted food intake was assessed during the subsequent meal. Compared with placebo, Saxenda® increased the feeling of fullness and fullness of the stomach after a meal and reduced the feeling of hunger and the estimated amount of expected food intake, as well as reduced unrestricted food intake. No treatment-related increase in 24-hour energy expenditure was noted when assessed with a respiratory chamber.
The efficacy and safety of the use of Saxenda® for long-term body weight correction in combination with a low-calorie diet and increased physical activity was studied in 4 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 SCALE studies, which included a total of 5358 adult patients.

Method of administration: Saxenda is administered once a day at any time, regardless of food intake. It should be injected into the abdomen, thigh or upper arm. The place and time of Saxenda injection can be changed without dose adjustment. However, it is advisable to inject at about the same time of day after choosing the most convenient time.
Dose: The initial dose is 0.6 mg per day. The dose is increased to 3.0 mg per day, adding 0.6 mg at intervals of at least one week to improve gastrointestinal tolerance (see Table below ).

The use of the drug in a daily dose of more than 3.0 mg is not recommended.
Therapy with Saxenda® should be discontinued if, after 12 weeks of using the drug at a dose of 3.0 mg per day, the loss in body weight was less than 5% of the initial value.
