Side Effects of ozempic, when does it start & how long does it last?
Side effects of Ozempic injection
In general, the mild side effects of Ozempic are manageable or temporary as long as you take the medicine.
But when you stop taking Ozempic, it may take about five weeks after your last dose for the medicine to pass out of your body. Therefore, you may experience adverse effects during this time.
Let me share with you my experience with Ozempic side effects.
Side effects in the first month
When you take the first dose of 0.25 mg of Ozempic, you will experience nausea, constipation, loss of appetite, and indigestion.
After the second dose of 0.25 mg, the side effects will start in full force and you will experience constipation, sulfur gas, bloating, and loss of appetite.
Some people also experience diarrhea, so taking the dose of Ozempic on an empty stomach is better.
In the second month, at a dose of 0.50 mg, nausea and vomiting last only two to three days after taking it,
but you will still have a loss of appetite, fatigue, constipation, and gas.
In the third month, when taking 1mg dose, you will lose more weight and see weakness and fatigue; for some people, even its starts with the second 0.5 mg dose.
Some side effects like irritability and confusion occur because Ozempic causes low blood sugar.
Some people have reported depression. If you get such symptoms discontinue severe diarrhea leading to an emergency.

How long do the side effects of Ozempic last?
The answer to this question is side effects last as long as the drug semaglutide remains in your body. The half-life of Ozempic Injection is from 4 to five weeks.
So, after you stop Ozempic, it will take your body about five weeks,
after your last dose to completely clear the semaglutide from your body.
This means that the common side effects will last up to 5 weeks.
You will feel the common side effect like nausea, constipation, gas, and bloating even after a month, but then it will not be severe as before.
One of the most common side effects, fatigue, and tiredness,
will be there because of the weight loss but will decrease with time.
The loss of appetite will still be there until two months because your stomach size is reduced during the Ozmpic injection course, but it will be normal after that. That’s why you have to keep your strict diet plan after finishing the ozempic injection.
