Wegovy Prescription Information
The new indication for Wegovy follows results from the STEP TEENS clinical trial, a phase 3 study that included 201 teens ages 12 to 17, all but one of whom had a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for their age and sex. By the end of the 68-week trial, participants taking Wegovy saw an average decrease of 16.1 percentage points in their BMI percentile compared with the placebo group, whose average BMI percentile increased by 0.6 percentage points. Of those who received Wegovy, 73% lost at least 5% of their starting body weight by the end of the study.
This once weekly injection can be administered by the teen, their parent, or a nurse – whatever works best for you!
