MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
Semaglutides are a great way to kickstart your weight loss journey. Medical Weight Loss made easy with Telemedicine!
At NeuDrip we get our Semaglutide medication from a local (United States) Compounding Pharmacy. Compounding pharmacies are regulated and inspected just like conventional pharmacy’s. The compounding pharmacy makes the medication and sends each batch out to get tested before it goes out to clients. This formula also contains Cyanocobalamin (B12) designed to cut down on nausea. Please reach out to us for more information about compounding the medication.
Are you a candidate for Semaglutide?
There are three qualifications for semaglutide:
Must be an Arizona, California or Texas resident. Florida coming soon! (expected end of March ’23)
- Difficulty losing weight and maintaining weight loss for extended periods of time
- Weight-related complications due to a higher BMI.
You can check your BMI here. If your BMI does not quite meet those numbers, you may still qualify.
What is Semaglutide for Weight Loss Treatment?
Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable prescription medication that can assist patients with long-term weight management.
This treatment works to facilitate weight loss in several ways, including:
- Slowing stomach emptying
- Reducing appetite
- Increasing insulin release
Semaglutide is most effective as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that may include exercise, behavioral changes, calorie restriction, and diet changes as determined by a physician. Unlike many other weight loss medications, this medication can be used for long-term weight loss management.
How much does it cost and what do I get?
- Lab order form and Lab reading
- Telemedicine visit with the Medical Provider
- Access to our Patient Portal and sms to our Medical Provider
- Issuance of a 3-month GLP-1a prescription (Wegovy, Ozempic, or Semaglutide)

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Wegovy, Ozempic, and Semaglutide?
Wegovy and Ozempic both come as an auto injector just as many insulin medications do, this can significantly increase the price of the medication. The generic Semaglutide can be obtained as a injectable medication that has to be self dosed and administered through insulin syringes. Some insurances will cover certain brands and some insurances won’t cover any of them. Rest assure we have a lost cost option should your insurance not cover your prescription.
What are the side effects?
Like all medications, Semaglutide can cause side effects. Most side effects are minor and go away as your body adjusts to the medication after a few doses. Gradual dose increases over time can minimize potential gastrointestinal side effects. The most common side effects are gastrointestinal. Clinical trial participants reported nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, gas, stomach pain, and heartburn. There was also an increased incidence of gallbladder disease. These side effects are common with all glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists.
Side effects may include:
- Stomach pain
- Upset stomach
- Gas and/or bloating
Additional possible side effects that may cause serious side effects:
- Inflammation of the pancreas
- Gallbladder problems

Talk to your healthcare provider about potential side effects to expect.
