YOU CAN CALL OZEMPIC:
A brand. An expensive brand. A brand with a catchy name. Ozempic has made quite a name for itself. Well, actually, a bunch of well-paid marketing people sat around in a room with bagels and coffee and the assignment to make up a name for a new “miraculous” drug. The challenge was daunting. What drug name hadn’t been used already? What sounded cool? “What would get people’s attention? “Ozempic”! Perfect. “Oh, Oh”…well, that got the creative people singing. But when it comes to names, what matters is what something is, not what it is called. And what Ozempic is, is a dressed-up, more costly version of its generic–Semaglutide. Let’s call it what it is.
Oh, oh…maybe you should read on.
YOU CAN CALL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BRANDS AND THEIR GENERICS:
Baffling. Perplexing. Perturbing. Ozempic is a brand. Semaglutide is the generic of Ozempic. The difference is quite simple; a brand is an intangible marketing or business concept that helps people identify a company, product, or individual. Branding is the process of creating and disseminating the brand name, its qualities, and its personality. And no matter that you call this brand “Ozempic,” it’s still really Semaglutide.
Oh, oh… you can see where it can get confusing.
YOU CAN CALL SEMAGLUTIDE:
Pound-shredding. Game-changing. The generic of Ozempic. A generic drug has the same medication as its brand. According to the FDA, generic medications such as Semaglutide are just as effective as their brand name drug—in this case, Ozempic–when it comes to quality and strength. Only the inactive ingredients, such as flavoring or preservatives, may change. Brand name drugs (Ozempic) are typically more expensive because of the higher initial costs to develop, market, and sell a brand-new drug. As in those pricey ad campaigns that have you swallowing their “Oh, oh, Ozempic” tune. A pharmaceutical company that develops a brand-name drug also has to file for a patent that prohibits other manufacturers from producing and selling the medication for a set period. Brand manufacturers like to pass some (or many) of these costs to the consumer. The fact is, generic medications typically cost about 80% to 85% less than the same brand-name drug.
Oh, oh…oh yes, you got those numbers right.
YOU CAN ALSO CALL SEMAGLUTIDE:
Remarkable. Safe. Totally unexpected. Semaglutide was originally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help control blood levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. Well, you know how a lot of medications have side effects? An unexpected side effect of Semaglutide was the strength to help you lose that “I’ll never lose the weight” feeling and replace it with “I can’t believe it.” Consider this sobering fact; globally, about 1 or 2 out of every five people are trying to shed pounds, and they’re using everything from draconian diets to spin-crazy exercise regimens to outrageously expensive supplements to help them toward their goal. They lose. They regain. Lose. Regain. Roughly 90% of people who lose a lot of weight regain just about all of it.
Oh, oh…so you’ve been there, right?
Semaglutide is a version of a naturally occurring hormone that acts on appetite centers in the brain and the gut, producing feelings of satiety. This jump-starts weight loss attempts and keeps them going in the right direction. And because Semaglutide isn’t a stimulant, there are no trembles, shakes, and counting sheep all night until even the sheep wear out and get to sleep.
Oh, oh…but that sounds wonderful, no?
AND, WHAT WOULD YOU CALL LOSING UP TO 25 POUNDS IN 2 MONTHS AND, IN FOUR MONTHS, 50 POUNDS OR MORE?
Monumental. Flabbergasting. Over-the-moon mind-blowing. And what if you could lose all this weight without feeling deprived and hungry all the time? Without becoming a gym fiend, sweating to spin the pounds off in endless spin classes. Losing weight with Semaglutide just requires a balanced diet that gives your body the nutrition it needs to help you function your best. And even just walking will do it for the exercise part. Semaglutide lets you enjoy food while losing, yes, we’ll say it again; up to 25 pounds in 2 months, and in four months, 50 pounds or more. And more than that, with Semaglutide, you’ll sleep better, your mood will improve, and your energy levels will soar. What would you call all that?
