Are you taking FAKE Ozempic?!

That's a question that might make Ozempic users heart drop if they weren't prescribed from a accredited Doctor.


The FDA, which is in charge of making sure medicines are safe, has warned people about fake versions of a diabetes drug called Ozempic made by a company called Novo Nordisk. These fake drugs were found in the places where medicines are kept before they're sold. The FDA has taken away thousands of these fake Ozempic injections, but some might still be around to buy.

Novo Nordisk, the company that makes Ozempic, is working with the FDA to figure out more about these fake drugs. Right now, they don't know if they're safe or if they'll work like real Ozempic.


The FDA says these fake Ozempic injections have things in them that aren't real, like fake needles that might not be clean. They also have fake labels and instructions for how to use the drug, as well as a fake box they come in.


The FDA wants people who take Ozempic to be careful. They shouldn't use any injections with a special number on them: NAR0074 and serial number 430834149057. If someone has these fake injections, they should tell the FDA.

The FDA has heard about five bad things happening to people who took these fake Ozempic injections, but they say these bad things are the same as the ones that happen with real Ozempic.


There's a lot of people who want to use Ozempic and another medicine called Wegovy, but Novo Nordisk doesn't have enough of them to go around. So, they're being careful about who gets them.


Even though Wegovy is only for people who want to lose weight, some people are using Ozempic for the same reason, even though it's not made for that. Just make sure if you decide to use Ozempic for weight loss, your receiving it from your doctor so you can avoid the question, "Are you taking fake Ozempic?"
