 5  Weight loss Nausea, constipation, sulfur burps, indigestion, acid reflux, bloating and fatigue. Have had several friends lose a ton of weight quickly on ozempic and I myself am FINALLY starting to lose the 160lbs I'd gained due to being on psych meds (Paxil). I have tried literally everything over the last few years to lose the weight and even keto didn't work. Ozempic has weight melting off, while I'm still taking my SSRI meds!!! I will deal with the nausea for that lol, of course this is just me and everyone reacts differently and some can't tolerate unfortunately. — F 35 20 days

 1  High blood sugar After starting initial dose the next day my stomach was bloated, unable to hold food or water. Felt very weak, burping, acid reflux, constipation. Had to miss work. I felt like I was dying. After 5 days of this, I called my care provider and he told me to stop the medication. Some people may be able to tolerate it, but I definitely wasn't one of them.

 1  Weight loss and diabetes I started taking ozempic at .25 the first month. The first week i was really sick at my stomach. Throwing up and diarrhea. The second week I had bad headaches and still had diarrhea every day. I drive a school bus so I had to miss work. 2 weeks later my Dr upped my dose to .50. The diarrhea got worse. I finally stopped taking it this last week. I have not had diarrhea in 2 days. The first time since taking ozempic. I will not be taking ozempic anymore. F 49 2 months

 2  Weight loss Nausea, fatigue, stomach pain, chest pain , excessive gas, Burping, flatulence, dizziness, increased heart rate and headache. It's only day 4 and I feel like death. I ended up in ER last night thinking having a heart attack but after numerous tests, scans etc, everything nothing came back as normal. After 5 hours in hospital, l all of a sudden I started to burp these massive smelly burps that wouldn't stop, then the farting started. 24 hours later and it's still bad. I still get chest pain like it's a heart attack. It causes severe pain in my shoulder when the chest pain hits. I feel constantly sick, tired, fatigued, week and my heart is constantly racing. Resting HR has been at 150... If this keeps going like this, I don't think I will be able to stay on it. I will update as time goes on. I'm eating very healthy but I just don't want to eat..

 5  Type 2 diabetes None other than dizziness going from floor to sitting/standing usually during intense work-outs. Less hungry and more easily full(which is what this drug is supposed to do). I felt compelled to write this due to all the negative reviews here. I will put a disclaimer on this and say I have only been on this for six weeks so I will plan on an update soon. I am guessing that the reason so many of you are getting sick is you are probably not attempting to change anything about the way you eat. This is not a magic pill where you can eat an entire pizza and two beers. I can tell you what works for me so hopefully some others will be willing to try this. I have been an athlete all my life and have always had a healthy diet. My only downfall was being a social drinker and larger portion sizes. After COVID lockdown I gained another 10 pounds and developed full-blown diabetes. I was already on a low dose of Metformin of 500 mg for pre-diabetes but with excess weight, thyroid condition, menopause, ethnicity, and family history I was doomed. I started Ozempic six weeks ago and have been extremely pleased. I have dropped 12 pounds effortlessly. I am doing nothing different than I was prior to Ozempic other than eating smaller portions. I eat low carb/keto and workout about six hours per week. I make sure to include cardio and strength training. I also have a CGM whichI use to watch BG trends and helps to see what affect different foods/exercise have on my levels. Before Ozempic I was in my BG target range 0% of the time. Now it is like 90%. I see nothing so far but positives from this drug and hope this encourages others to try it. F 53 6 weeks

 4  Type 2 diabetes Acid reflux, nausea, anxious I am concerned that the initial dose may not be accurate despite flushing the pen. I can tell a distinct difference if I receive less medicine and my blood sugars reflect the shortage. I like ozempic but like the function of the trulicity pen better. Need accurate markings on the pen itself. F 69 5 months

 3  Insulin Resistance I loved this drug. Got my college body back! I felt great UNTIL my IBS and gastric emptying went crazy. Hopefully the gastric emptying will improve in the next few weeks. My IBS-C is terrible. So, I rated this a 3. It worked great for me-- but my digestive system is in ruin. F 65 10 months

 1  Type 2 diabetes Nausea, burping, stomach pain, constipation, gas, bad stomach acid which kept me from sleeping, loss of appetite which may sound good for weight loss but it is not healthy. Terrible drug. This drug is not a healthy way to lose weight or control blood sugar. F 69 1 months

 1  lower A1C My Dad has been taking this poison for 11 days and he has experienced extreme nausea, extreme diarrhea and all of the other side effects mentioned in this quorum, including very bad bachaches, feels like he has the flu, can't eat anything at this point and has already lost about 15 lbs. I think that's due to the diarrhea though. However it does lower the A1C and you will lose weight but you have to weigh pros and cons here I think. Some folks cannot tolerate this drug and I agree with the person on here that said if you can't tolerate metformin you won't be able to tolerate Ozempic. He said he'd rather die of diabetes than go through this stuff so after reading these posts I think he's decided to stop taking this and call his endo to find another way. M 83 11 days

 1  Type 2 diabetes Sick in the stomach almost all of the time, burping and breaking wind all the time. At one point I was giddy. I have also developed the shakes. It's horrible stuff. Taking together with metformin. I simply don't want to eat and could go all day without food, such is the potency of this drug. Spoke to my dietitian who told me that I simply am not eating enough. I am not going back to the specialist and I will no longer take Ozempic because prior to taking I felt terrific ( and had already lost 12kg ), but now I am always sick. I got the impression from the specialist that it is just the default drug to take and was told I would be on it for the rest of my life â€Ļ.. no thanks not for me ☚ī¸đŸ‘Ž M 60 3 months
