To purchase Saxenda and the injectable pens required for 56 days would cost around £323.99, 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.

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.

Why choose Second Nature?

If you’ve made the decision to try a semaglutide prescription (assuming you’re eligible), why should you choose Second Nature’s medication-assisted programme over others?

For peace of mind.

Second Nature is the only UK company that provides private weight-loss injections and is also trusted by the NHS to provide weight-loss services.

The NHS has used Second Nature for over 6 years, and we ensure we abide by the highest levels of data security and patient safety. W

With that, we believe there comes a level of authenticity and peace of mind that other providers cannot match (e.g. Boots, Superdrug, Juniper, Numan, Manual, etc.).

If you want to go with a company with a proven track record of providing the most effective digital weight-loss programme to the NHS (as proven in our official scientific publications in the British Medical Journal, and others), then give us a go.
