What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in Mounjaro®. It is a weekly injectable medication in a group of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists (or GLP-1 mimickers). Mounjaro®(tirzepatide) was FDA approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in May 2022. In addition to it's effects on blood sugar and insulin levels, studies have shown that Mounjaro®(tirzepatide) provided substantial and sustained weight loss (around 20% weight reduction in 72 weeks).

What is the dosing?

One of the great things about compounded tirzepatide is that there is flexibility in dosing. You may do well with a 5.0mg dose continuously, and if that's the case, your 4.5 vial will last 15 weeks instead of 10 weeks. Some people do very well on just a 2.5mg dose, which would last even longer. However, it's important not to go up on your dosage if you experience significant GI symptoms such as reflux, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, or abdominal pain. Our Nurse Practitioner is always available to discuss dosing and treatment by phone if you need help.

Remember that these vials must be refrigerated, and should not be shared with anyone. Patients must be medically screened before taking tirzepatide, and it's important not to escalate your dose any faster than it's prescribed. It takes a few weeks for blood levels of tirzepatide to rise, so it's recommended to remain at each individual dose level for 4 weeks (4 shots) before escalating.

If a lower dosage is working well for you, you can remain at that level beyond 4 weeks. And don't forget to rotate the site of injection every week, and dispose of your needles in a hard plastic container with a lid.

How long does it take to arrive?

There is a 3-week delay in getting your order, but don't worry - you can continue getting weekly injections with us until your vial arrives, or purchase a few shots to take home with you to hold you over. The cost of individual injections depends on your dose. (The 2.5mg is $75 per shot, 5.0mg is $100 per shot, and 7.5mg is $125 per shot.)
