How NYBG Can Help Manage Weight-Loss Injectable Side Effects

Weight-loss injectable medications have become increasingly popular as a treatment option for people struggling to lose weight through traditional methods, such as diet and exercise alone. While these weight-loss medications can be effective, they also come with potential side effects and symptoms that users are unsure how to resolve. While weight-loss drugs and injectables, such as Ozempic or Wegovy, can be an effective short-term strategy, the long-term success and safety are still being researched and are unknown. 

NYBG Can Help with Your Symptoms

Here are some common symptoms people may deal with when using weight-loss injectable medication:

Nausea and Vomiting:

One of the most common side effects is gastrointestinal distress, including nausea and vomiting. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and may occur shortly after starting the medication. Nausea and vomiting can be particularly problematic for individuals with sensitive stomachs or those prone to motion sickness.

Diarrhea or Constipation:

These gastrointestinal disturbances can be disruptive and uncomfortable, impacting a person’s daily routine and quality of life.


Headaches are a frequent complaint among weight-loss medication users, may vary in intensity and duration, and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as dizziness or light sensitivity. While headaches are usually temporary, they can still be uncomfortable.

Fatigue and Weakness:

Some people may experience a decrease in energy levels, which can interfere with their ability to perform daily tasks and engage in physical activity. This can make it harder for individuals to stick to their weight-loss regimen.

Insomnia or Sleep Disturbances:

These disruptions in sleep patterns can lead to daytime fatigue, irritability, and impaired cognitive function. Poor sleep quality may also hinder weight-loss efforts by affecting metabolism and appetite regulation.

Injection Site Reactions:

These reactions can include pain, redness, swelling, or itching at the site of injection. While usually mild and temporary, these symptoms can be bothersome for some.
