Saxenda - or Australian equalivent

Recommended Posts


I posted a while ago about maybe getting a re-sleeve! Surgeon today has told me my stomach is still perfect after Gastric Sleeve. He wants me to try a 4 weekly injection called?? (Cannot recall the name) But from "Doctor Internet", I figure it is like Saxenda! (FYI - I have gained 24 Kg since first sleeve)

I'm a bit shocked by the side effects - has anyone tried it and can you let me know successes and regrets??? PLEASE!!!!

I tried it for a fairly short period only as it made one of my autoimmune symptoms worse as I progressed through the higher doses. For the three weeks I used it, I was fairly fortunate that i didn't feel any of the nausea or stomach upset issues that are some of the side effects. I didn't like injecting myself but I would have likely continued using it for a little while (if it wasn't for the autoimmune issue) as I was given a free month's (or was it three month's) supply by a doctor.

It is expensive, so be prepared to spend some $$.

In one of the subforums here (the ESG one) and on a couple of fb pages I belong, some people have had good success with saxanda.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
