You can buy Saxenda online in the UK from registered and regulated clinics and pharmacies, but you need a prescription. You can get a prescription by filling out a simple online form.

However, if you’re looking for a GLP-1 medication to support weight loss, Saxenda may not be the best option.

Wegovy is now available to purchase online with a prescription, and research has shown that Wegovy is a more effective drug than Saxenda.

Wegovy leads to more weight loss and improved blood sugar levels than Saxenda, with fewer side effects.

Can Saxenda be prescribed online?

Saxenda can be prescribed online if the provider is approved and registered and you complete their online prescription application.

But, you need to meet specific requirements such as having a BMI of over 30 or over 27 with a chronic condition like type 2 diabetes or heart disease.

Is it safe to order Saxenda online?

All online prescribers have to follow strict regulations in the UK to provide medications for delivery.

All pharmacies in Great Britain, including those providing internet services, must be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and meet their standards for registered pharmacies.

Prescribers may partner with providers like Second Nature to distribute their products. All partners must follow strict regulations and have sufficient insurance coverage to advertise and sell medication.

However, illegal websites do operate beyond these regulations; here are some tips to ensure you’re buying prescription medicines from reliable sources:

  • If you’re purchasing your medication through a prescriber’s partner, like Second Nature, make sure the prescribing pharmacies information is provided
  • Be wary of online pharmacies that offer prescription drugs without a prescription or at a significantly lower price than other pharmacies
  • Check if the online pharmacy is licensed and located in the United Kingdom
  • Make sure that the online pharmacy has a licensed pharmacist available to answer your questions

Should I buy Saxenda?

Deciding to start a new medication is a highly personal choice. So, ultimately, it depends on whether you believe it’s the best decision for your health going forward.

However, Saxenda isn’t as effective as other GLP-1 medications, like Wegovy. Wegovy can lead to significant weight loss and health improvements like lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, with fewer side effects.

However, all medications come with risks and rewards, and not everyone is suitable for Wegovy, and Saxenda might be a better option. We’d recommend speaking with your doctor or local pharmacist for some advice.

Second Nature’s medication-supported programmes

Second Nature has two medication-supported programmes: a Wegovy weight-loss programme and a Mounjaro weight-loss programme.

If you’ve made the decision to try Wegovy or Mounjaro (assuming you’re eligible), why should you choose Second Nature over other medication providers?

For peace of mind.

Second Nature has worked with the NHS for over 6 years providing weight-loss programmes across the UK.

Whilst our Wegovy and Mounjaro weight-loss programmes are private and not currently used by the NHS, we’ve applied the same high standards of scientific evidence, patient safety, and data security, as those required by our NHS partnerships.

We hope that our 6+ years of working will the NHS and building a track record of trust and effective weight-loss results will give you peace of mind to give us a try.
