 5  T2d Definitely urgency in morning bowel movements which was inconvenient. Learned to drink kefir and psyllium cocktail each evening and cleared this up. A little weight loss but definitely keeping weight level. M 59 100 days
Max 1X D
 5  Weight Loss Nausea first few days at the start and after dose increases. Nauzene OTC chewables and Ginger chews took care of that. Nothing after the first week or so on each dose. I'm not diabetic so maybe that's why other people are going off about side effects. I take lots of psych meds and side effects from those are -way- worse. There is some constipation but miralax and/or chugging a tall glass of Prune Juice takes care of that if I need help. This is the ONLY medication that has ever helped me lose weight. I have taken (and still take) a lot of psych meds which always cause weight gain - Weight I've never been able to lose. I started Rybelsus 6 months ago at 233lbs (6') and lost 40lbs in the first 4/5mths (down to 190.7 today). Started w/ 3mg for a month, 7 for a few, and now I'm on the max dose of (14mg). The weight loss has slowed, but I'm ECSTATIC being down 40lbs and w/in 20 of my goal weight. I haven't exercised at all and haven't consciously changed my diet. Not sure why the reviews around tend to be so harsh, but I highly recommend this......find a way to get past any gastro stuff and you'll drop lbs. Take it AS DIRECTED (leave tabs in pack until using, take 1st thing in morning after sleep fasting, and then wait 30min before eating/drinking or taking other meds) - if you don't take as directed the medicine doesn't get absorbed. Anyway, this stuff is amazing. M 43 7 months

 5  Diabetes Type 2 Light nausea first 3 wks, nothing since. Foremost, my daily fasting blood sugars have gone from 140-160, down to 90-100. I received 2 3mg months worth of sample from my dr, i didn't loose weight, but i did loose 4 inches. Interesting. Been on 7mg one month and only lost 6 lbs and hoping to continue monthly losses. Just started month 2 of the 7mg, but i am very satisfied with overall results, I am beginning to feel 'normal', and very happy with my daily blood sugar levels, will get an AIC after 3months on 7mg. Will update. F 65 3 months

 5  T2D A little diarrhea at the same time everyday. Stomach feels queasy when first waking up and you have to take the pill with a sip of water and wait 30 minutes to eat. You start with 3mg for a month and move up to 7mg. I will rate 7 mg when I do it for a couple of weeks. This really seems to be working. My numbers were in the 300s and now they are in the 130 to 200 range. That's with the 3 mg. I still want to eat out of habit but I don't feel the need to eat a lot. F 54 12 days

RYBELSUS  (SEMAGLUTIDE):  Semaglutide is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Semaglutide is similar to a natural hormone in your body (incretin). It works by causing insulin release in response to high blood sugar (such as after a meal) and decreasing the amount of sugar your liver makes. If you use insulin, semaglutide is not a substitute for insulin treatment.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
