When America falls in love with a prescription drug, it falls hard.
Whereas commercials for Viagra and Botox once dominated the airwaves, the new hot favorite is Ozempic, a Type-2 diabetes drug.
And while its ability to cause rapid weight loss is a side effect to blood-sugar management, the drug is being hailed as a miracle treatment by those in the know.
“Patients consider it a wonder drug,” says New York dermatologic surgeon Paul Jarrod Frank, MD.
According to Vogue magazine, Hollywood celebrities are crediting Ozempic for their weight loss, and “Google searches for Ozempic are also on the rise, signaling an insatiable desire to learn more about its sudden slimming effects.”
