Tirzepatide (Replicated Mounjaro) 

*Please be aware that this is not medical advice as this is merely general information about our products*

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a GLP-1 (Glucagon-like Peptide-1) receptor and GIP receptor agonist. GLP-1 receptors are located in the pancreas, and their function is to stimulate insulin secretion, inhibit glucagon secretion, and regulate appetite and caloric intake. The GLP component of Tirzepatide bonds to these receptors, which can lower blood sugar and significantly suppress appetite. Nonclinical studies suggest that the GIP component of Tirzepatide further contributes to its regulation of food intake. 

What are the benefits?

Semeglutide can offer a wide range of benefits, which include but may not be limited to:

  • Weight loss (-20.9% weight loss)

What are the side effects?

Semeglutide's common side effects are mainly gastrointestinal in nature, with symptoms including but not limited to:

  • Constipation, indigestion, and bloating

  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)

  • Nausea and vomiting 

Rare but serious side effects that warrant immediate medical intervention include:

  • Hypersensitivity and allergic reactions to medication

  • Change in vision in patients with type 2 diabetes

Pregnant women should consult their medical provider before use:

  • Animal studies revealed that while mothers saw a reduction in weight and food consumption, their offspring saw increased rates of skeletal and visceral birth defects.

  • Women looking to get pregnant should discontinue usage at least 2 months before a planned pregnancy due to its long washout period.


Does Tirzepatide interact with other medications?

Tirzepatide's interactions with other medications are currently unknown, but your risk of getting low blood sugar may be higher if you're taking other medications that can cause low blood sugar, such as sulfonylurea or insulin. Tirzepatide can also interfere with certain oral medications, such as birth control pills, by slowing gastric emptying. Please consult a medical provider about possible interactions.
