How Many Doses Are In an Ozempic® (semaglutide) Pen?
The number of doses in an Ozempic pen depends on the dose you are administering and the pen you have. There are 3 different Ozempic pens (0.25 mg/0.5 mg, 1 mg and 2 mg). The pen that administers both the 0.25 mg and 0.5 mg doses contains a total of 8 doses of 0.25 mg or 4 doses of 0.5 mg. Most patients use this pen to take 4 doses of the starting dose (0.25 mg) then 2 doses of the next highest dose (0.5 mg) before switching to a new pen. The pens for the 1mg and 2 mg doses of Ozempic each contain 4 doses. Note that once the Ozempic pen is opened and used, it should only be used for up to 56 days per the manufacturer’s instructions.
