With Which Meds is Semaglutide Most Often Compounded?

There is conflicting information about what semaglutide is most commonly compounded with. Some sources say that semaglutide is sometimes compounded with vitamins, like vitamin B12, but there is no evidence that this is a safe or effective practice.

The FDA has warned against using compounded semaglutide because:

  • The safety and effectiveness of compounded semaglutide has not been evaluated by the FDA.
  • Compounded semaglutide may be contaminated or contain inaccurate doses of the drug.
  • There have been reports of serious side effects from compounded semaglutide.

If you are considering using semaglutide, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of this medication. They can prescribe you a commercially available version of semaglutide, such as Ozempic or Wegovy, which has been approved by the FDA.
