Frequently Asked Questions About Saxenda

    Can Saxenda make you hungry?

    Saxenda is designed to help manage your appetite, so it should not lead to an increase in hunger. If you find yourself experiencing heightened hunger while using Saxenda, it's advisable to consult your doctor for guidance.

    Saxenda closely resembles a natural hormone in the body known as GLP-1, which plays a role in regulating appetite signals in the brain. Saxenda mimics the actions of this hormone, thereby reducing the sensation of hunger (Ladenheim, E., 2015).

    Nausea is a frequently reported side effect of Saxenda, and it might occasionally lead to vomiting. Nevertheless, this side effect tends to lessen as time passes (Lean et al, 2013). If you're feeling nauseous, it might be helpful to opt for plain, low-fat foods such as plain biscuits or bread.

According to the NHS, Signs of low blood sugar can include: a shaky feeling, perspiration, headaches, tiredness, frailty, a sense of disorientation, becoming easily annoyed, feelings of hunger, a rapid heart rate, and a jittery sensation.
