On this podcast episode, I discuss the pharmacology, adverse effects, and drug interactions of semaglutide.
Semaglutide has two primary uses: Type 2 diabetes and Weight Management – the dosing varies depending upon the indication.
When using semaglutide, pay attention to GI adverse effects. Nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting are the most common ADRs and are dose-dependent.
Pay attention to corticosteroid bursts. They can cause substantial hyperglycemia and counteract the effects of diabetes medications like semaglutide.
