Saxenda Dosing for Weight Loss

Starting and Adjusting Your Saxenda Dose

Initial Dose:
Start with 0.6 mg per day for one week. This initial low dose helps your body get used to the medication.


Increasing the Dose:
Increase your dose each week by 0.6 mg until you reach the recommended dose of 3.0 mg per day. Here's the schedule:

  • Week 1: 0.6 mg per day
  • Week 2: 1.2 mg per day
  • Week 3: 1.8 mg per day
  • Week 4: 2.4 mg per day
  • Week 5 and onward: 3.0 mg per day

Maintenance Dose:
Once you reach the 3.0 mg dose, continue taking this amount daily. This is the dose shown to help with weight loss when combined with diet and exercise.


Missed Dose:
If you miss a dose, do not take an extra dose or increase your dose to make up for the missed one. Just continue with your regular schedule. If more than 3 days have passed since you last took Saxenda, start again at 0.6 mg and follow the dose escalation schedule.


Self-Injecting Saxenda

  • Inject Saxenda once daily, at any time of the day, with or without food.
  • Administer Saxenda under the skin (subcutaneous injection) in your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm.
  • Change the injection site within the same region each time to reduce the risk of skin problems.
