Does Wegovy® (Semaglutide) Cause Fatigue?

Yes, a potential side effect of Wegovy is fatigue, although it is not fully understood why the medication has this effect in some people. It may be related to how the medication causes a decrease in appetite, leading a person to eat less and get less energy from food. Typically, side effects from Wegovy improve as time goes on and the body adjusts to the medication.  However, if fatigue is impairing your day to day activities or quality of life, it is important you discuss this with your doctor as it may be a side effect or could be related to something else.
