Tirzepatide and semaglutide are both effective treatments for weight loss.
Semaglutide works by mimicking the GLP-1 hormone and makes you feel less hungry by creating more insulin and sending fullness signals to the brain. Semaglutide is administered through injection.
Tirzepatide mimics the GLP-1 and GIP hormones to trigger insulin creation and sensations of fullness. Tirzepatide can only be administered through injection.
Both medications have similar mild side effects, with the most common effect being slight nausea in some patients after receiving treatments. It has been reported that tirzepatide has lower incidents of nausea than semaglutide.
