Weight Loss Clinic (online)

Skinny Minny Shots

We will take a full medical history from you and assess your BMI from your height and weight. This information, which must be truthful and accurate, will be passed to our medical prescriber, who will, in turn, issue a prescription. In case of any query, the prescriber will get in touch with you by phone or email.

This is a course of injections which are self-administered to the stomach area on a daily basis. (it is a tiny needle!). You will need a small sharps box from the chemist or from the clinic. These may be returned to the clinic for disposal. DO NOT DISPOSE OF NEEDLES OR SHARPS BOXES IN HOUSEHOLD RUBBISH.

The drug prescribed is liraglutide, trade name Saxenda. This is a prescription only medicine. You can come into the clinic to collect your Saxenda, alternatively it can be sent to you directly from our pharmacy. Saxenda works by mimicking a hormone in the intestine that tells your brain your stomach is full. However fewer calories and more exercise can also be beneficial!

Dose

Week one 0.6 mg
Week two 1.2mg
Week three 1.8mg*
Week four 2.4mg*

* If your weight is still steadily losing there is no need to increase dose. If it stalls, go to the
next level.
