Frequently asked questions about tirzepatide

Tirzepatide is a prescription medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Healthcare providers also prescribe it to assist with weight management. It belongs to a drug class known as dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). Tirzepatide works by targeting multiple pathways to regulate blood sugar levels and appetite, making it a valuable option for individuals with type 2 diabetes who also struggle with weight management.

Tirzepatide is administered as an injectable medication. It is available under the brand name Mounjaro.

This medication can only be obtained with a prescription, meaning you must have a written prescription from a licensed healthcare provider to purchase it.

Tirzepatide is primarily prescribed for two main purposes:

1. Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes: Tirzepatide is used to help lower blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It is particularly suitable for those who have difficulty achieving glycemic control with other diabetes medications.

2. Weight Management: Tirzepatide can also aid in weight management and may be prescribed for individuals who have both type 2 diabetes and obesity. It helps regulate appetite and can lead to significant weight loss.

Tirzepatide works through its dual action on the GIP and GLP-1 receptors.

These actions include:

  • Stimulating the release of insulin from the pancreas in response to high blood sugar levels (glucose-dependent insulinotropic effect).
  • Reducing the release of glucagon, which helps lower blood sugar levels.
  • Slowing down stomach emptying, which can help control appetite and reduce food intake.
  • Promoting a sense of fullness after meals.

Overall, tirzepatide helps lower blood sugar levels and supports weight management in individuals with type 2 diabetes by regulating appetite and improving insulin response.

The use of tirzepatide may lead to side effects, although not everyone will experience them.

Mild side effects may include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Gas
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite

More severe side effects are less common but may include:

  • Severe stomach pain
  • Vomiting
  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Changes in heartbeat
  • Fever
  • Skin rash
  • Heartburn
  • Swelling

If you experience any unusual or severe side effects or have concerns about them, consult your healthcare provider.

Before starting treatment with tirzepatide, inform your healthcare provider about any existing medical conditions, allergies, or other medications you are taking. This includes prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, and dietary supplements, as they may interact with tirzepatide.

Specifically, tell your healthcare provider if you have a history of:

  • Pancreatitis or gallbladder disease
  • Thyroid problems
  • Kidney problems
  • Stomach or intestinal problems

Tell your provider if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, as the use of tirzepatide during pregnancy and lactation should be discussed to assess potential risks and benefits.

The dosing of tirzepatide may vary depending on your individual needs and your healthcare provider's guidance. Typically, tirzepatide is administered as a subcutaneous injection once a week.

Your healthcare provider will determine the initial dose and any dose adjustments based on your response and the goal of achieving optimal blood sugar control and weight management.

Do not discontinue or change your tirzepatide dosage without consulting your health care provider.

Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you experience any side effects or have concerns while taking the medication.

Tirzepatide should be stored as directed by your health care provider or according to the medication's packaging instructions. Follow the recommended storage conditions, keeping the medication in the refrigerator or at room temperature.

Tirzepatide is currently only available with a prescription. A licensed healthcare provider must authorize the use of this medication.
