Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight can I lose?

Results do vary, but in a 68-week medical study of 1,961 adults living with obesity or excess weight with a related medical problem, adults lost ~35 lbs (or ~15% body weight). People taking placebo lost an average of 6lbs (or ~2.5% PA Wellness weight). The average starting weight for both groups was ~232 lbs.

How profound is this new medicine for weight loss?

Previously, the most commonly used medications for weight loss were amphetamines. These amp up your system and make you jittery. Once you stop taking them, people were gaining back the weight. In addition, there was always concern about the effects to your heart. Now, this new medication is so profound and stands out because it doesn’t have that impact nor negative side effects. You simply aren’t hungry enough to overeat and the medication does the work for you. In fact, there’s documentation that this is proven to be more effective than gastric bypass surgery! In the process of lacking hunger, patients are learning new eating habits because their stomach is shrinking and they’re happy with fewer calories.

You take the pharmacist-blended medicine once a week, but how exactly does it work?

Anywhere that it says PA Wellness, it should say body; here was a study done that looked at patients who had gastric bypass surgery. After that surgery, the body was secreting this protein at 10x the amount as they were before surgery. So, really, the body naturally released that protein to control appetite after surgery.

How does the PA Wellness program work?

Our semaglutide program starts with a $50 telehealth consult, that includes your medical history and any prior weight loss programs. During this call we screen for any contraindication and review how semaglutide works. Semaglutide requires labs in the last 6 months before starting.

After the call you can purchase semaglutide. Your first order includes injection supplies. Your order is compounded just for you, which can take 1-2 weeks. We ship directly to your doorstep, and when your order arrives, we have a videos for injection training.

It may sound to good to be true, but we want to work with you to meet your goals! Other places place you on a standard protocol, with regular increases in your dosage. We do not follow a dosing protocol. We check with you every week through a survey, and monthly telehealth. We want you to know your side effects, how much weight you’ve lost, and your weight loss goals going forward. Then we, both provider and patient, make the right decision about changing your dosage.

Does PA Wellness have a BMI requirement?

No. Semaglutide with BPC-157 and Tirzepatide with B12 are for patients who need to lose > 20lbs.

Can I switch from semaglutide to tirzepatide?
Yes. You will need to speak with your provider prior to switching medications. Please book a follow up phone call in the patient portal.
Do i need a prescription before my tele-health visit with PA Wellness for Semaglutide?

Nope! We meet for a virtually consultation, ensure that semaglutide treatment is safe for you, write the prescription, and have your order of compounded semaglutide shipped to your door.

My insurance stopped covering Ozempic or Wegovy can I start at the same dose?
Yes! One of the many advantages of having a vial is dosing based on your needs.
Does PA Wellness require a membership?
Nope! We charge by the vial of semaglutide. The charge includes all of you telehealth visits, compounded medication, supplies and injection training. You can sign up for a 6 or 8 week interval subscription, however this is not required.
What is the refund policy?

PA Wellness offers goods and services Semaglutide, LLC offers goods and services that are irrevocable. Therefore, we do not issue refunds for any product or service that has been injected or used in your treatment. In consenting to be treated, it is important that clients understand and accept this condition. Peptide formulations are made for each individual patient. Once an order for peptides has been submitted and sent for compounding no refunds are available.

Will I still get all the nutritional value I need in my diet?

Absolutely, this brings you back to the ability to feel satisfied eating the portion size that is right for your build. Now, you will lose weight at a dramatic speed. For patients who are larger, we will mandate that they take a multivitamin – not because they aren’t getting the nourishment that they need, but because they are losing weight so rapidly and returning to the diet that will work for them once they achieve their goals. It’s just a recommendation for support.

How do you customize the medicine for each patient?

The protein that we’ve described does the bulk of the work. This is what will cause you to feel full. You know typically you go to the steakhouse and order a big steak and complete the whole thing. With this, you can’t out eat this protein so you’re going to take a couple of bites and you’re going to feel full. That’s what we call satiety. But, there are other things that we know that can help on the periphery. For example, we might add B12 to your customized blend to support your metabolism and give you increased energy. We have several custom ways that we blend support in based on your lifestyle to maximize results for each patient.

What is it that determines how much weight a patient will lose and how quickly it will it happen?

Like most diets, the higher your BMI and the more weight you need to lose, the more dramatic the pounds lost will be. However, even those with just 20 or 30 pounds to lose see dramatic results rapidly and at a nice consistent rate.

Do I need to inject the medicine myself?
Yes, but don’t worry we will teach you how to do this through video training. Semaglutide is a once a week subcutanous injection
Do I need to purchase supplies?
We send you everything you need for the first 6 months in one of our peptide kits, direct to your door. If you need a peptide refill kit, this can be purchased for $15. A complete peptide box with a sharps container is $20.
Do I need labs for Semaglutide?

We require standard labs before starting. If you have completed these in the last 6 months you can upload them to the patient portal. Semaglutide allows for you to complete these labs at a LabCorp location or you may complete them with your primary care provider. These include:

CBC – Completed Blood Cell Count
CMP – Complete Metabolic Panel
Fasting Lipid Panel
Thyroid Panel
Hemoglobin A1C
semaglutide requires labs every 3 months at a minimum.

My friend was really nauseated with semaglutide, will that happen with me?
