Anyone taking those injection diet drugs to lose weight

I have IBS and ischemic colitis and I am curious if anyone is taking those injection diet drugs and if yes which one are you taking? I am extremely overweight and would like to learn if anyone is using them to lose weight.

  1. Hello, I have not heard of this drug before nor have I tried it. I'm sure others in the community will soon chime in. -Elizabeth (team member)

    1. Hi . I can't personally speak to these drugs, but I can tell you that they are GLP-1 agonists and were originally used to treat diabetes. This article from the Cleveland Clinic offers more information: I noticed that you mentioned IBS and you may also want to check over on our sister-site for that condition for those with personal experience with GLP-1 drugs at Wishing you the best.
