Product Information

What is Saxenda?

It contains Liraglutide a glucagon-like peptide-1 analog made from Saccharomyces cerevisiae through recombinant DNA technology.

Saxenda is a pre-filled pen that contains a clear and colorless aqueous solution manufactured by Novo Nordisk. One pen consists of 18 mg Liraglutide in a 3 mL solution.

What is it used for?

Saxenda is used for patients who are obese, overweight, or who have type 2 diabetes together with exercise and diet.

How does it work?

Saxenda is an Incretin mimetic drug. It binds to GLP-1 receptors and stimulates glucose-dependent insulin release. It suppresses appetite and stops the secretion of glucagon, a hormone that signals the liver to release stored glucose. It also helps the patient to digest food more slowly which will cause the patient to feel full.

How to take it

Saxenda must be a colorless, clear, and particle-free solution that can be taken with or without food. Inject subcutaneously in the thighs, upper arms, or abdomen. Wait for the dose counter of the pen to zero then wait for 6 seconds before the patient removes it from the injection site. Always change the needle every after dose. Rotate the site of administration every other day to reduce the risk of amyloidosis. In case the patient misses a dose, inject the medication as soon as possible. But if the next dose is near, skip the missed dose and continue with the same dosing schedule.


The usual starting dose for adults is 0.6 mg once a day. The dose will increase at weekly intervals with the doctor’s supervision until the patient reaches 3mg once a day which is the maintenance dose of this drug. Maintaining doses for pediatric patients may range from 2.4 mg to 3 mg per day.

Side Effects

Vomiting, Diarrhea, and Nausea can be experienced by patients taking Saxenda for the first time and when the dose is increasing every week. Swelling and rash in the injection site can also happen but they will subside after continued treatment.

Warnings, Precautions, and Contraindications

Saxenda should be avoided if the patient has a family history of malignant thyroid C-cell carcinoma (MTC). Consult the physician for a change of medication if the patient is planning to get pregnant as Liraglutide may cause weight loss and may harm the fetus. The safety and effectiveness of Saxenda are not well established in patients less than 12 years of age. Do not take Saxenda in combination with any GLP-1 receptor agonist or with diet pills. Alcohol intake can also lower blood glucose levels which may increase the risk of hypoglycemia.

Adverse Effect

A combination of Saxenda and Insulin may result in Hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes. Acute and Chronic kidney failure can be a result of taking GLP-1 receptor agonist drugs like Liraglutide. Tachycardia may result in palpitations in both adult and pediatric patients. Immunogenicity, Depression, Malaise, Cholecystitis, and delayed gastric emptying should also be observed.


Keep Saxenda out of reach of children. Unopened Liraglutide pens should be stored in a refrigerator ranging from 2-8°C while opened Saxenda pens can be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature at 59-86°F (15-30°C) for up to 30 days. Do not freeze and store away from direct heat.

Saxenda is indicated for patients in the following populations:

  • Adults over the age of 18 who suffer from obesity (BMI greater than 30).
  • Adults over the age of 18 who are overweight (BMI greater than 27) and suffer from one or more weight-related medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 Diabetes, or heart disease.
  • Adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who suffer from obesity (BMI greater than 30) and have a body weight of over 132 pounds.

In certain cases, doctors may prescribe Saxenda off-label to treat patients beyond the populations listed above if they believe it will benefit their health. However, Saxenda is not the right weight loss medication for everyone. Speak directly with your doctor to determine whether or not the drug may be a good fit for your particular needs and circumstances.

Saxenda may not be the right drug choice for you if:

  • You are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to become pregnant
  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients in Saxenda
  • You have a personal or family history of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome Type 2
  • You have Type 1 Diabetes
  • You are currently depressed or have a history of suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • You have existing gastrointestinal issues

Before taking Saxenda, it is important to be completely open with your doctor about your medical history as well as any prescription or over-the-counter medications, supplements, natural remedies, or vitamins you are currently taking. Some medications can interact dangerously with Saxenda and seriously impact your health.

In addition, it is important to disclose the following:

  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant
  • If you are allergic to liraglutide or any of the other ingredients in Saxenda
  • If you have a personal or family history of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome Type 2
  • If you have a history of mental health issues or suicidal thoughts
  • If you have existing gastrointestinal issues

Once you reach a maintenance dose of 3 mg of Saxenda per day, a Saxenda pen will last for 6 days (6 injections). While taking smaller doses of Saxenda to build up to the 3 mg maintenance dose, each pen will last longer, according to the dose(s) you inject each week.

Saxenda only comes in injectable form. It is not available as a pill or liquid.

Single-use NovoFine 32G Tip needles are designed to be used with Saxenda pens. These needles are some of the finest and shortest available from Novo Nordisk. They are sold separately from Saxenda pens and may require their own prescription in some states.

Questions about Saxenda Side Effects

Saxenda belongs to the class of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists. It mimics an incretin hormone produced in the human gut, binds to its receptor sites in the body, and triggers the natural release of pancreatic insulin in response to the consumption of food. It also slows down gastric emptying (the rate at which food is emptied from the stomach into the small intestine), increases feelings of satiety (fullness), and suppresses appetite.

Yes. Though Saxenda is commonly taken alongside other medications, it is important to discuss potential drug interactions with your doctor to avoid any serious health outcomes. In particular, tell your doctor if you are taking other GLP-1 receptor agonists or diabetic medications, including insulin and sulfonylureas.

Because Saxenda slows down gastric emptying and the speed of digestion, it is important to consider the possibility that it may impact the absorption of oral medications, especially those that need to pass through the stomach quickly.

The amount of time it takes Saxenda to start working varies from patient to patient. Some patients may notice changes almost immediately within their first week on the drug, while others may need to reach higher doses before their body begins to respond. Most patients will begin to notice the most impactful results once Saxenda’s maintenance dose is reached (a time period of 4 weeks for most patients).

Also important to keep in mind is that Saxenda is most effective in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise. Your lifestyle will impact your weight loss on Saxenda.

In general, it is not recommended to use Saxenda in combination with other weight loss medications. Saxenda slows down digestion and can affect the absorption of oral drugs and supplements. Disclose all medications, including over-the-counter drugs and natural or herbal supplements, to your doctor before starting Saxenda. If you are considering starting a new product while on Saxenda, speak with your doctor before doing so.

Questions About Administering Saxenda

Your doctor will provide you with specific instructions on how to administer Saxenda. Always follow these exact instructions and call your pharmacist or healthcare provider with any questions or concerns. You can also refer to the Saxenda Instructions for Use that come with each pen.

The basic steps for administering Saxenda include:

  • Prepare your pen – Wash your hands, check to ensure the liquid inside your pen is clear and colorless, remove the pen cap, and attach a new needle.
  • Check Flow – You must check that each new Saxenda pen has proper flow.
  • Select your dose – Turn the dose selector until the proper dose appears on the dose counter.
  • Inject Saxenda – Inject Saxenda under the skin of your thigh, abdomen, or upper arm and hold down until the dose counter shows 0.
  • Remove and dispose of your needle – Carefully remove the needle from your Saxenda pen and dispose of it in an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container.

Saxenda should be injected under the skin of the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen but never into a muscle or vein. Injection sites should be rotated daily. Do not inject Saxenda into the same site twice in a row.

If you accidentally take more than your prescribed dose of Saxenda, you should contact your doctor immediately or go to the emergency room if you are experiencing symptoms such as severe nausea, vomiting, or low blood sugar.

The length of time you take Saxenda will depend on a variety of factors, including your weight loss goals, your medical history, and your body’s reaction to the drug. Obesity is a chronic health condition, and Saxenda may be taken long-term to treat it.

Saxenda is indicated for chronic weight management and may be taken long-term by patients with obesity or other chronic weight-related conditions. Your weight loss goals, medical history, and tolerance of the drug will impact the length of time you stay on Saxenda. Your doctor will monitor you throughout the duration of your time on Saxenda and will make adjustments to your treatment plan accordingly.

Saxenda should be injected at the same time every day, but that time is at the discretion of the patient. Choose a time of day that is convenient to your routine and inject Saxenda every day at that time.

No. Saxenda can be safely administered with or without a snack or meal, though some patients find it convenient to time daily injections with a particular meal.

If you miss a dose of Saxenda, take it as soon as you remember. If you don’t realize you missed a dose of Saxenda until the next day, simply skip the missed dose and inject your next scheduled dose of the drug. Never take two doses of Saxenda in one day or increase your dose to make up for a missed injection, as this can lead to serious health outcomes. If you have missed 3 or more days of Saxenda injections, contact your doctor for information about how to restart the medication.

In general, yes. As a weight loss drug, Saxenda often indirectly helps treat weight-related health conditions such as high cholesterol and hypertension (high blood pressure). Always consult your doctor to ascertain whether or not Saxenda will be the right option for your particular health conditions.

No. Most patients self-inject Saxenda, which comes in prefilled pens intended for ease of use. Your doctor will show you how to administer the drug properly when you first start taking it. If you are struggling with your Saxenda injections for any reason, your doctor or pharmacist can support you.

Questions About Storing and Disposing of Saxenda

Before being opened, Saxenda must be refrigerated at all times. After being opened, Saxenda can either be stored at room temperature or remain refrigerated for up to 4 weeks. It should never be exposed to extreme temperatures and should be kept away from direct light.

While in the refrigerator, Saxenda should not be stored close to the cooling element, where it may risk becoming frozen. Outside of the refrigerator, it should be kept in a dark, dry, climate-controlled location.

Always store Saxenda safely out of the reach of children.

After injecting Saxenda, remove the needle, avoid replacing the needle cap (to reduce the risk of needle sticks), and dispose of the needle in an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container.

If you don’t have access to this type of container, a hard plastic, puncture-proof container with a lid can be a suitable alternative (e.g. a detergent bottle). Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for more information about local sharps disposal regulations and access to sharps disposal containers.

Once the needle has been removed, Saxenda pens themselves can be disposed of in your regular household trash.
