Semaglutide is the active ingredient better known by the brand name Ozempic. It is classified as a GLP-1 drug because it mimics a hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 receptors, which are responsible for regulating appetite and other metabolic processes. Along with proper diet and lifestyle changes, these types of medications can support those who need a little extra help managing their weight.

Compounded GLP-1 Medications at Cody Drug

One of the benefits of compounding is that we can create custom doses and various forms of GLP-1 drugs such as semaglutide and tirzepatide. It’s also a cost-effective option since we use affordable FDA-approved base ingredients for our custom formulations. We offer injection forms of both semaglutide and tirzepatide, as well as sublingual semaglutide, which is a liquid formula placed under the tongue. Currently, we can deliver your medications locally within the Sulphur Springs area or ship to your home if you live somewhere else in the state of Texas. At this time, compounded GLP-1 drugs from our pharmacy are only available to Texas residents.

Compounded medication must be prescribed through a doctor, and we can coordinate all of the details behind the scenes and work with healthcare providers to create the best possible treatment plan for you. It’s also important to know that compounded prescriptions are not covered by insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, so you must be willing to pay out of pocket.

A Supplement Alternative: Our Weight Loss Bundle

weight loss supplements

Not sure you want to start taking a weight loss medication like semaglutide or tirzepatide? We have a natural alternative available to purchase online! Our Weight Loss Bundle Max includes a probiotic to support bowel regularity, digestion, immune response, and overall gut health, a berberine supplement that has been shown to improve blood glucose metabolism, and a fiber supplement containing Shimizu Propol® A propolmannan—a highly pure, natural soluble fiber that’s been highly researched for its weight control, metabolism, and satiety benefits.

This blend of supplements cannot work miracles; it takes consistent use for at least 4 to 6 weeks before noticing any results. Will, the owner and lead pharmacist here at Cody Drug, recommends this dosing schedule for maximum effectiveness:

  • Berberine– Take 1 capsule 30 minutes before a meal twice a day (breakfast and dinner). Since this supplement is so powerful, it can make you a bit nauseous at first. If it does, switch to taking it once a day until more tolerable.
  • FiberLean– Take 1 - 2 scoops with water 30 minutes before your largest meal of the day. Drink it fast!
  • Probiotic– Take 1 capsule any time you’d like.
