How do I increase my dose of Wegovy (Semaglutide)?
You increase your dose of Wegovy® each month. Your healthcare provider will need to write a new prescription for each dose strength of Wegovy until you reach the 2.4 mg dose. Unless directed otherwise by your healthcare provider, you will typically follow this dosing schedule:
- 0.25 mg once weekly for 4 weeks
- 0.5 mg once weekly for 4 weeks
- 1 mg once weekly for 4 weeks
- 1.7 mg once weekly for 4 weeks
- 2.4 mg once weekly going forward
