WHAT IS SAXENDA?

Saxenda is a treatment used to aid weight loss alongside healthy eating and lifestyle choices. It works by helping to reduce your appetite and make you feel fuller for longer. You inject Saxenda under the skin using an injection pen (don’t worry, it’s easier than it sounds and we’ll give you full instructions).

Find out if Saxenda is right for you and get the weight loss treatment and support you need.

SAXENDA AND YOUR DIET

Saxenda is only effective as a weight loss support treatment when used alongside healthy eating and lifestyle choices.

Foods to avoid while on Saxenda might include sugar and harmful fats. This, along with being mindful of portion sizes, should help to boost your weight loss while using Saxenda.

Check out our recommended healthy eating plans

HOW DOES SAXENDA WORK?

Saxenda aids weight loss by helping you feel fuller, and reducing hunger levels and cravings.

Saxenda contains the active ingredient liraglutide, a synthetic version of the naturally occurring hormone Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is released from the gut after you eat and plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels, therefore affecting appetite and calorie intake.

WHERE CAN I BUY SAXENDA?

Saxenda is a prescription-only weight loss treatment. You can speak to your GP about a possible referral to a weight loss service. Some NHS weight loss services are able to prescribe Saxenda. You can also buy online through us at Boots Online Doctor. Our experienced, friendly clinicians are just a few clicks away.

No appointment needed, simply fill out our quick online questionnaire and one of our team will prescribe Saxenda for you if it’s suitable.
