How Long Does Saxenda® (Liraglutide) Stay In Your System?

Saxenda 3.0 mg, the highest dose of Saxenda, stays in your system for about 3 days. However, this doesn’t mean that you will notice benefits or side effects for 3 days after your last dose; this will vary from person-to-person as the amount of Saxenda in your system will be much less on day 3 than it was on the day you gave yourself the injection. You should discuss any plans to stop taking Saxenda with your healthcare provider so they can help you to do this safely. If you need to start a new medication while taking Saxenda, this should be reviewed with your healthcare provider as well.
