Even off social media, consumers are seeing ads for the weight-loss drugs in public, on television, and elsewhere. The prevalence of Ozempic and Wegovy, especially brought about by their advertising, have brought the weight-loss tactic of the medication into the mainstream, potentially putting millions of Americans at risk.

 Ozempic is a drug used to treat diabetes, and the higher dosage Wegovy medication is intended for obese individuals aged 12 or above and overweight adults with weight-related health conditions. Despite its intended uses, the flood of Ozempic and Wegovy advertisements lead a new group of individuals to use the drug.


With a new, unintentional group of individuals flocking towards these weight loss drugs, these individuals may start experiencing dangerous side effects. Wegovy and Ozempic users have reported downsides to taking the treatment, such as vomiting, fatigue, and weight gain once they stop the treatment. Symptoms may also include nausea, fatigue, and possibly pancreatitis.

Many of these advertisement companies promote Wegovy and Ozempic without properly alerting consumers of the risks the drugs pose. Have you seen these Wegovy or Ozempic ads?
