Congratulations on beginning your weight loss journey with RenewMe! Please read the below tips, tricks, & administration instructions to help you achieve the BEST outcomes.

Semaglutide Tips

  • Administer once weekly at any time of day, with or without meals.
  • If you miss a dose, administer within 2 days of the missed dose.
  • Nausea is expected the first day or 2 of your injection. If the nausea sustains please give us as a call at (213) 866-3747.
  • *Important* Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day to prevent dehydration and/or constipation. Water also helps the medication work better to reduce symptoms of hunger.
  • If you become constipated increase your fiber and water intake. If you have constipation, consider over-the-counter Magnesium Citrate, MiraLax, or DucoLax found found at your local pharmacy, CVS, or Walgreens.
    • A daily over-the-counter Colace tablet may be necessary if the constipation persists.
  • An active diet and exercise program is recommended.
    • Avoid carbohydrates & sugar
    • Increase protein & fiber intake
    • Increase fresh fruit & vegetable intake. The greener & more colorful, the better.
    • High interval (HIIT) training and/or weight training are recommended.
    • Intermittent fasting is recommended.
  • Losing weight is not just about the numbers on the scale, but also maximizing your health and vitality. Many people ignore their body’s nutritional needs while embarking on their weight loss journey which can lead to fatigue, weakened immune system, and nutrient deficiencies. Take advantage of your 20% vitamin therapy discount to stay energized, detox, & boost immunity with high dose IV vitamins. We recommend the Ultimate Drip, RenewMe Drip, or Ultimate Warrior Drip to ensure your body is functioning at an optimal level.
  • Be careful how you store the syringes in your refrigerator, we are not responsible for any destruction or waste of the medication.

Subcutaneous Injection Instructions

Set your table with the following supplies:

  • 1 Alcohol swab
  • 1 Syringe from the refrigerator
  • Sharps container (empty water bottle, milk/juice carton)

 Injection Technique

  1. Wash your hands well with soap and water.
  2. The skin on the lower belly is the easiest place to inject your medication. Clean the area you wish to inject with the alcohol swab. Next, pinch an inch of skin and fatty tissue between your fingers.
  3. Keeping your skin pinched (not too tight), insert the needle into the skin at a 90 degree angle. 
  4. After completely inserting the needle, press down on the plunger to inject the medication into the pinched skin. 
  5. Keep the needle in your skin for 10 seconds after the medication has been injected. Then release your pinched skin and pull out the needle. NOTE: The next time you inject, rotate sites of injection. Rotate around your belly button like a clock. (Rotating injection sites helps to ensure your medication is absorbed into your body and to reduce skin damage) 
  6. Throw away the needle and syringe into your sharps container. **Never recap your needle once it has been used for injection**
  7. Wash your hands again, store your medication syringes in a secure area of the refrigerator. 

*Must discard syringes 40 days after receipt *
