Hello doctor,

Is it good to use Ozempic injections while on blood pressure medication? I have been on blood pressure medication for over six months and I am seeing positive changes, but have gained a lot of weight and the doctor warned that I have to shed some to reduce the risk of diabetes. Is it safe to use Ozempic injections to shed this weight because exercising and other options have failed to help reduce the rapid and massive weight gain, particularly in my belly?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern regarding the Ozempic (Semaglutide) injection. This injection is completely safe with blood pressure medications. It has been shown to have a very good effect on weight loss, cholesterol reduction, and even blood pressure reduction. As you lose weight, your blood pressure medication dose will also come down. Ozempic may have a few side effects like nausea or vomiting, other side effects are very rare. It is not recommended in pregnancy or if you are planning one, its use is contraindicated. I hope I have cleared all your doubts. Thank you.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply. I have no plan of getting pregnant till three to four months from now. I will revert back if I have more queries.
