Endocrinologist: Dr. David, Other replied 11 months ago

long term use of the Saxenda injections are not well studied.

most patients are not on it for long term like longer than 3-6 months

it is best used for short term use to help decrease appetite to help weight loss

common side effects can be nausea, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, headaches, upset stomach, decreased appetite, fatigue

if you do well on it and continue to loose weight, your doctor may decide to have you continue it longer

regular exercise can help improve muscle strength and increase weight loss as well

let me know if you have questions.
