How It Works

Tirzepatide is a medically prescribed injection for managing heathy glucose levels in adults. Tirzepatide is incredibly effective for managing type 2 diabetes as well as weight loss because it serves a dual purpose: increasing insulin and decreasing a hormone called glucagon. It stimulates the glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptors, leading to more balanced glucose and insulin levels.

When used in tandem with a nutritious diet and exercise regimen, Tirzepatide also promotes a greater weight loss potential by reducing the appetite, increasing feelings of fullness, and restabilizing glycemic control—especially for individuals with type 2 diabetes.

Clinical trials with Tirzepatide treatments have shown patients experiencing anywhere between 12 – 25 lbs of weight loss, making it an effective solution for those who have plateaued with Semaglutide or other prescribed weight loss treatments. Additionally, Tirzepatide has been shown to reduce the risk of major cardiovascular diseases in individuals with type 2 diabetes and those who have similar health conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is the Tirzepatide treatment administered?

    Tirzepatide is administered via subcutaneous injection; it is injected just beneath the skin using a single-dose pen once a week. You’ll start with 2.5mg, with additional dose increases based on your needs. Future injections must occur on the same day of the week as the initial treatment to ensure dosages are consistently spread out. Dr. Gaudin will assist in administering the medication and provide guidance on injection technique, dosage options, and storage/disposal.

  • What if I forget my weekly Tirzepatide dosage?

    If you miss a dose of Tirzepatide, take it as soon as possible within 4 days after the missed dose. If more time has passed, skip the missed dose, and take the next one on the regularly scheduled day.

  • Is it safe to take Tirzepatide alongside other medications?

    Tirzepatide is less likely to interact with other medications since it is not metabolized in the liver. In your initial consultation with Dr. Gaudin, it is important to discuss any medications you are currently taking (including over-the-counter drugs and supplements) to make any necessary adjustments and ensure there are no potential interactions.

  • What are the common side effects of Tirzepatide?

    Possible side effects vary from person to person. Everyone responds to medicines differently, especially if a patient receives treatment in tandem with other prescription medications. Common side effects of Tirzepatide are most apparent during the initial stages of treatment, such as nausea, decreased appetite, diarrhea, indigestion, and others. However, these side effects gradually diminish over time. Please consult first with Dr. Gaudin or your health care provider to discuss if Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) is the best treatment option for you.

  • How long does it take for Tirzepatide to take effect?

    Tirzepatide begins to work soon after the first dose, but it may take several weeks to see the full effects on blood sugar control and weight loss. Individual responses may vary, and it’s essential to follow the prescribed treatment plan and regularly check in with a medical professional to monitor your blood sugar levels.
