Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) from Canada


Mounjaro (tirzepatide injection) is a medication used once a week to help control blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. It works best when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Additionally, Mounjaro can aid in weight loss by regulating blood sugar levels and decreasing appetite.


Uses for Mounjaro

- Adults with type 2 diabetes who cannot use metformin or for whom metformin alone isn’t enough.

- It can be used alone or with other diabetes medications like metformin, sulfonylureas, SGLT2 inhibitors, or insulin.

- Adults can also be prescribed Mounjaro for weight loss.


Who should not use Mounjaro

- Anyone allergic to tirzepatide or any ingredients in the injection.

- Individuals with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (a type of thyroid cancer) or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2.

- Pregnant or breastfeeding women.


Important Warnings for Mounjaro:

- There is a potential risk of thyroid tumors. The relevance of this risk in humans is not known, but if you or your family have a history of thyroid cancer, do not use this medication.

- Be aware of symptoms like a lump in the neck, trouble swallowing, or a hoarse voice, and report these to your doctor immediately.


Mounjaro from Canada and Weight Loss:

Mounjaro helps with weight loss by mimicking certain hormones in the body, leading to decreased appetite and improved metabolic control. This makes it a promising option for those looking to manage their weight, especially if they have specific health concerns.


Comparing Mounjaro with Zepbound:

- Zepbound and Mounjaro both contain tirzepatide and are made by the same manufacturer but are marketed differently.

- Zepbound is not available in Canada, and prescriptions for Zepbound will be substituted with Mounjaro in Canada.

- While Mounjaro is primarily used for managing blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes, Zepbound is specifically indicated for weight loss.


Dosage and Administration for Mounjaro:

- The starting dose is usually 2.5 mg once a week, injected under the skin in the stomach, thigh, or upper arm.

- After 4 weeks, the dose is usually increased to 5 mg once a week.

- If needed, your doctor may increase the dose further, but the maximum dose is 15 mg once a week.

- If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember if it’s within 4 days. Otherwise, skip it and continue with your next scheduled dose.


Side Effects for Mounjaro:

- Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and decreased appetite. These usually occur when you start the medication and may decrease over time.

- Serious side effects can include pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), low blood sugar (especially if used with insulin or sulfonylureas), and allergic reactions.

Inspection: Before use, inspect the solution. It should be clear and colorless. Do not use if it is cloudy, discolored, or contains particles.


Administration:

Weight Loss Medications: Mounjaro vs Wegovy

Both Mounjaro (tirzepatide) and Wegovy (semaglutide) are effective for weight loss, but they work in different ways and have varying levels of effectiveness.


Effectiveness:
Mounjaro: In clinical trials, people using Mounjaro lost an average of 25% of their body weight after one year. For example, someone weighing 100 kg (220 lbs) could lose 25 kg (55 lbs). About 92% of participants lost more than 10% of their body weight, and 84% lost more than 15%.
Wegovy: People using Wegovy lost an average of 16% of their body weight over the same period. About 69% of participants lost more than 10% of their body weight, and 50% lost more than 15%.


How They Work:
Wegovy: This medication mimics a hormone called GLP-1, which helps reduce hunger and makes you feel full.
Mounjaro: This medication mimics both GLP-1 and another hormone called GIP, which may help reduce appetite more effectively and for a longer time.

Side Effects and Safety:
Both medications can cause side effects like nausea, diarrhea, and constipation. Mounjaro may have a slightly higher chance of causing these side effects, which might lead some people to stop using it.

Availability:
If you're considering these medications, you might find it useful to know that they can sometimes be obtained from Canada, where they may be more accessible.
