Compounded Semaglutide as an alternative to Ozempic®and Wegovy®
Semaglutide is dispensed under the brand names Wegovy®and Ozepmic®, priced at $900 and as high as $2000 for a one month supply. Compounded semaglutide offers the same medication at a fraction of the cost with multiple advantages for the patient and provider.
Starting on semaglutide can be difficult for patients and frustrating for providers. Semaglutide indications include obesity. However, many insurance companies have strict guidelines on who is eligible, including BMI, and Diabetes unresponsive to commonly used Diabetes medications.
What is Compounded Medications?
Compounding pharmacies make medications from scratch, so they can tailor the dosage to the individual patient. These pharmacies are safe and regulated by the state Board of Pharmacy, and have frequent inspections for sterile processing.
A unique advantage to compounding pharmacies is the ability to combine medications for increased efficacy and patient tolerance. Lolachi Institute offers semaglutide compounded with Vitamin B12. Vitamin B-12 is a vitamin that helps the body burn fat for energy and has been shown to increase your metabolism. Compounded semaglutide is significantly less expensive with a 1 month supply starting at $570. This fee includes your medical visit, one on one counseling with Dr. Lolachi, and your 4 weekly Semaglutide injections.

Commonly known as Glucagon-like peptide1 (GLP-1). This is a class of type 2 diabetes drugs that not only improves blood sugar control but may also lead to weight loss. Weight loss can vary depending on which GLP-1 drug you use and your dose.
Studies have found that all GLP-1 drugs can lead to weight loss of about 10.5 to 15.8 pounds (4.8 to 7.2 kilograms, or kg) when using liraglutide. Studies found people using semaglutide and making lifestyle changes lost about 33.7 pounds (15.3 kilograms) versus 5.7 pounds (2.6 kilograms) in those who didn’t use the drug.
Evidence supports both GLP-1 agonists liraglutide and semaglutide as effective agents for weight loss in patients with obesity without diabetes, with semaglutide data providing a more significant weight loss in clinical trials.
Semaglutide is a prescription medication used to treat Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and for Weight Management. Semaglutide is available under the following different brand names: Ozempic, Rybelsus, Wegovy.
Liraglutide injection is used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is used when diet and exercise alone do not result in good blood sugar control. It is also used to help reduce the risk of heart and blood vessel problems, including heart attacks and strokes in patients with type 2 diabetes and established heart or blood vessel disease.
Liraglutide is available under the following different brand names: Saxenda, Victoza.
We recommend injecting your weekly dose into your abdomen, at least one inch away from your naval. Rotate injection sites each week. The injection supplies that we will provide are 31G 5/16” long insulin syringes that are measured in units. Each insulin syringe is safe to use for one injection. Do not use the same syringe for multiple injections. Dispose of your used syringe into a stiff/hard plastic resealable container, such as a detergent container.
The most common side effects include gastrointestinal related symptoms such as abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. These side effects may be more common after initiation (especially if using a higher dose than prescribed) and during dose escalation.
Extreme sensitivity reactions such as rash, trouble breathing, swelling of the mouth, face, or throat should be reported to your physician. Low blood sugar can occur and is marked by signs of dizziness, headache, feeling sleepy or weak, shaking, fast heartbeat, confusion, hunger, change in eyesight, or sweating. Discontinue use of the medication should these reactions occur.
At Lolachi Institute, you will get a Body Composition Analysis during your consultation visit with Dr. Lolachi. Body fat percentage scales work by using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). BIA is a method that uses tiny electrical impulses to estimate body composition. The device sends an electrical current from one foot, up one leg, across the stomach area and down the other leg into the second foot. The speed of the current is related to the amount of water in your body, and fat contains less water than muscle tissue.
Getting started on semaglutide is very simple. Patients have a consultation with Dr Lolachi, who is very familiar with semaglutide and various other weight loss medications as well as nutrition counseling. Patients weigh themselves at least once a week and have monthly visits. This allows us to keep patients on track with diet and exercise while optimizing weight loss with semaglutide.
If you have any questions or concerns about semaglutide, be sure to talk to Dr. Lolachi. She can help you weigh the risks and benefits of this medication and determine if it is right for you. And remember, always follow your healthcare provider’s instructions when taking semaglutide or any other medication.

Real Patients with Real Results!
I found Dr. Lolachi while researching the latest weight loss drugs. My first visit with her, I was very impressed with her clinic and staff. I was able to connect with a clinician who was compassionate, professional, and customized a weight loss plan to fit my budget. I trusted her guidance and followed the plan she laid out for me. Today was my second visit and I was able to not only meet the goal she gave me but exceeded it. I have recommended a few friends to her and hope they have the same progress and experience. Dr. Lolachi is amazing ❤️❤️❤️
