About Ozempic pens

Prescription Ozempic
(semaglutide) in the UK
Ozempic is the one of the branded names of injectable semaglutide, which is licensed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and has been shown to help patients control blood sugar and lose weight (1).

In the UK, patients with type 2 diabetes can buy Ozempic if they have a prescription, or may be able to access it through the NHS if eligible. Ozempic is not licensed for weight loss, however a version of the medication which is licensed for weight loss (called Wegovy) is now available. Learn more about Wegovy here.

Who is Habitual?

Habitual provides two types of programmes:
  • Medication-based weight loss programmes which include a prescription, medication, and access to our behavioural resources including a mobile app and community support.
  • Type 2 diabetes remission programmes which combine total diet replacement with the same digital services included in medication plans.
Habitual does not prescribe Ozempic for weight loss, as it is only licensed for type 2 diabetes. Wegovy contains the same compound (semaglutide) and is licensed for weight loss.
