OZEMPIC® contains the active substance semaglutide. It is used to lower blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes. OZEMPIC® is used on its own if your blood sugar level is not properly controlled by diet and exercise alone and you cannot use metformin. OZEMPIC® is used in combination with one or more other medicines for diabetes when they are not enough to control your blood sugar levels. These other medicines may include: oral antidiabetics (such as metformin, sulfonylurea medicines) or insulin. It is important that you keep following any diet and lifestyle advice from your doctor, pharmacist or nurse while using OZEMPIC®. OZEMPIC® is not a substitute for insulin. OZEMPIC® should not be used in patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (formerly known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus or IDDM), or for treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis.
