Here Are the Side-Effects of Using Ozempic and Wegovy
*ozone layer and Vigoway are becoming popular drugs for extreme weight loss, although they are mainly used for treatment type 2 diabetes and obesity in patients.
Those who use them to lose weight are actually abusing them. It wouldn't be a big deal if this abuse didn't have any side effects, but unfortunately, according to medical experts, there are.
People who use Ozempic and Wegovy to lose weight take advantage of the drug's ability to affect satiety; that is, the drug makes you feel full even after eating a small meal.
Prescription drugs are often used to help diabetics and clinically obese patients manage their weight. However, many people who do not have diabetes or obesity problems turn to Ozempic and Wegovy to lose weight, which is why these drugs are popular on social media and Hollywood. Billionaires Elon Musk and Chelsea Handler have both admitted they use them to lose weight.

Experts constantly remind people that drugs have adverse side effects and should be used with caution. “Journal of Pharmacology and TherapeuticsA new study published recently found that users who stopped taking the drug experienced “rebound weight gain” within a year of stopping the injections.
“We see this weight-rebound rebound in a lot of patients, and it's really devastating,” says Dr. Kara Robinson, a family physician in Charlotte, North Carolina.
An avid Wegovy user said she lost 60 pounds after using the drug to lower high blood pressure and high blood sugar. She was also overweight while using these drugs. Wegovy helped her reduce sugar cravings and boost her energy. But the story doesn't end there.
When the user stopped using the drug, she gained another 20 pounds in the months after quitting.
“I'm so frustrated with the weight coming back in such a short period of time. I'm craving sweets…I'm losing energy,” said the user, identified as Yolanda Hamilton. “If I gained weight, I would take more medication.”
Other users claim that their faces are now sagging and aging after overusing Ozempic and similar drugs. “Ozempic Face” is now a term used to describe signs of aging observed in drug users.
Jennifer Berger, a user of Mounjaro, a drug similar to Ozempic and Wegovy, told The New York Times that after she started taking the drug, her face began to age dramatically. Mounjaro can also help people with type 2 diabetes regulate blood sugar.
“I remember looking in the mirror and feeling like I didn't even know myself,” Jennifer said. She added that her body looked fine, but her face looked tired and aged.
Dr. Oren Tepper, a plastic surgeon in New York, says sagging during weight loss is common, even in the facial area.
“When it comes to facial aging, fat is often the friend rather than the enemy,” Dr. Oren Tepper told The New York Times. “Losing weight may set your biological age back, but it tends to advance your facial clock.”
