Mounjaro for Weight Loss

What is Mounjaro?

Mounjaro is an injectable medication that is currently being studied as a potential treatment for type 2 Diabetes and Obesity. It is classified as both a GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist, which has been shown to aid in weight loss.

What is Mounjaro used for?

In ongoing studies, Mounjaro is being used to promote weight loss in people who are overweight or obese. While it is currently only FDA-Approved to treat type 2 diabetes, Mounjaro can be prescribed off-label to treat patients struggling with weight loss.

How does Mounjaro work?

Mounjaro works by mimicking the effects of GIP and GLP-1, which are naturally occurring hormones in the body. This helps to regulate appetite, promote feelings of fullness and slow the emptying of the stomach, helping you feel fuller longer.


How is Mounjaro administered?

Mounjaro is administered via injection, either once a week or once every two weeks, depending on the specific dosing regimen. This medication is self-administered, but your Provider will walk you through each step of the process and demonstrate proper injection technique prior to your first dose.

How long does it take for Mounjaro to start working?

Many patients begin to see results after just a few weeks of treatment and this weight loss will continue until you have reached your goals. Once you’re at a healthy weight, you and your Provider will discuss maintenance options.

What are the side effects of Mounjaro?

While many patients have little to no side effects from Mounjaro, some possible side effects include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Your La Chelé provider will closely monitor your progress and side effects and adjust dosage as needed.

How much does Mounjaro cost?

The cost of Mounjaro can vary depending on factors such as dosage, insurance coverage, and pharmacy pricing. Your La Chelé provider will work with you to determine if your prescription will be covered by insurance and recommend the most cost-effective pharmacies.

What are the benefits of taking Mounjaro?

Mounjaro is a fantastic tool to aid in weight loss and can also improve overall health and wellness. Maintaining a healthy weight with Mounjaro can lead to a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Is Mounjaro safe to use for Weight Loss?

While Mounjaro is still pending FDA approval for weight loss, similar drugs like Wegovy have been indicated for weight loss and have been proven to be safe and effective. As with any medication, you should discuss potential risks and benefits with your La Chelé Provider to determine if Mounjaro is right for you.
