On this episode, I discuss the pharmacology of oral semaglutide. It is a GLP-1 agonist that is the first one in the class to have an oral formulation.
There is a recommended dose titration with oral semaglutide that can take a month or two to get therapeutic doses. I disucss this further in this episode.
The most common adverse effect of oral semaglutide is nausea.
Oral semaglutide is dosed once daily which is nice to try to maximize patient adherence.
