HOW DOES IT WORK?
Tirzepatide is a unique medication that mimics two hormones naturally found in the body: GLP-1 and GIP.
After eating, these hormones stimulate the release of insulin, which is responsible for reducing blood sugar.
Tirzepatide also reduces the time for the stomach to empty its contents, suppressing appetite.
WHAT IF I MISS A DOSE?
If four or less days have passed since the missed dose, take the missed dose as soon as you think about it, then resume your normal dosing schedule.
If four or more days have passed since the missed dose, skip the missed dose, then resume your normal dosing schedule.
WHO SHOULD NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION?
If you have any of the following conditions, please talk to your doctor prior to starting tirzepatide:
