The cost of Saxenda and the injectable pens required for 56 days will be around £324, or around £160 per month.

The price would then increase incrementally the longer you use the medication. Saxenda is generally recommended for up to 12 weeks, costing anywhere between £485-£540.

However, the cost of Saxenda will depend on where you’re purchasing it from and how long you intend to use the medication.

Saxenda is available on prescription in UK pharmacies if you’re eligible. You can also receive Saxenda on prescription as part of a tier 3 weight management service.

Second Nature currently doesn’t provide Saxenda, and instead we provide Wegovy and Mounjaro as part of our Wegovy weight-loss programme and Mounjaro weight-loss programme. This is because research has shown that in general, both of these newer medications lead to higher levels of weight loss with fewer side effects.

To understand if you’re eligible for Wegovy or Mounjaro, you’ll first need to complete our health quiz – or feel free to read on more about Saxenda in the UK.

Where can you buy Saxenda?

You can purchase Saxenda online from registered and regulated clinics and pharmacies in the UK. You need a prescription to buy Saxenda, which you can get by completing a simple online form.

How do you qualify for a Saxenda prescription?

To receive a Saxenda prescription in the UK, you need to meet strict eligibility criteria which are kept confidential to ensure patient safety.

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.

Saxenda can support weight loss of around 5-7% alongside lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise.

However, research has shown that newer GLP-1 medications, like Wegovy, can lead to more significant weight loss with fewer side effects.

The potential for Wegovy to support significant weight loss is why Second Nature has launched a medication-supported programme this year, where you can purchase a Wegovy prescription alongside our award-winning weight-loss programme.

Take home message

Weight-loss injections are designed as additional tools for weight management interventions and shouldn’t be considered lifelong medications.

Instead, they should be used to help you kickstart your weight loss and healthy journey while you commit to living a healthier lifestyle.

Consider the use of antidepressants for people living with depression. They’re not designed to cure the condition. Instead, they’re designed to allow room for therapy to treat the condition’s underlying cause.

Mounjaro, and other weight loss injections, like Ozempic and Wegovy, are similar. They can allow you to make lifestyle changes to support long-term weight loss maintenance.

Mounjaro can help silence food-related thoughts and also give you a boost of confidence with more immediate weight-loss results.

This helps to buy you the time and headspace to understand why your body may have struggled to lose weight previously, and to build new long-term healthy habits.

The core focus of our medication programmes is to calm down the feeling of food noise, lower your cravings, and allow you to build healthier habits to keep the weight off for good.

The ultimate goal is to make losing weight feel second nature.

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.
