Celebs and TikTok stars are creating a buzz about weight loss injections, known as semaglutide (best recognized as Wegovy  or Ozempic) or tirzeptide (Mounjaro). These injections promise easy weight loss, but their alarming drawbacks are often ignored. Before rushing to your doctor or ordering online, carefully examine the fine print associated with the medication.

Research published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism indicates that once people stop using the medication semaglutide (better known as Wegovy and Ozempic), any weight they’ve lost is likely to return.

This study, which sought to examine changes in body weight and cardiometabolic risk factors upon the termination of the drug, found that after a year, injection users had regained two-thirds of the weight they had lost.
