Mounjaro is currently available in the UK to purchase privately for weight loss. Second Nature launched its Mounjaro weight-loss programme in Feb 2024 and currently has all doses of Mounjaro in stock.

Mounjaro was approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in November 2023 for weight loss after initially being approved for people living with type 2 diabetes.

Mounjaro is a weight-loss injection manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. The drug inside Mounjaro is called tirzepatide.

Mounjaro supports weight loss by mimicking two hormones in the body: GLP-1 and GIP. These hormones lower hunger by communicating with the brain’s appetite control centre, the hypothalamus.

Research suggests Mounjaro can support average weight loss of up to 26% after one year.

Is Mounjaro available on the NHS?

Mounjaro will eventually be available in the NHS in England. However, for now its only available via private pharmacies and weight-loss programmes like Second Nature before being made available in the NHS.

To get a Mounjaro prescription from your GP, you’ll likely need to be referred to a specialist weight management service in your local area that prescribes Mounjaro alongside a lifestyle intervention.

How much does Mounjaro cost in the UK?

To purchase Mounjaro and the injectable pens starts from £229 with Second Nature, rising to up to £299 for the higher doses.

To purchase a prescription for Mounjaro via the NHS in England, you’ll only need to pay the base fee for a prescription of £9.95.

Can I buy Mounjaro online?

You can buy Mounjaro online from weight-loss programmes like Second Nature, and other registered online pharmacies.

Ensure that the pharmacy is legitimate and regulated. You can check if the pharmacy is registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), licensed by the NHS to provide prescriptions, and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)

Companies like Second Nature will use a prescribing partner to provide the medication, and their information will be easily accessible on purchase. 

To buy Mounjaro online, you’ll need to complete a clinical consultation to ensure you meet the strict eligibility criteria for the medication. 

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 built the programmes with a focus on scientific evidence, patient safety, and data security.

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