Table of contents:

Rybelsus (Semaglutide) is a prescription medication that is used to help lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. Rybelsus contains an active ingredient called semaglutide. Semaglutide works by helping the pancreas produce more insulin and by making it easier for the body to use insulin and glucose.

Rybelsus (Semaglutide) is a new medication approved by the FDA to help type 2 diabetes patients manage their blood sugar levels. It is the first pill form of GLP-1 (glucagon like peptide 1) receptor agonist, designed to be taken orally once daily. The drug was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2019, making it one of the newest treatments for type 2 diabetes.

Semaglutide medication is an important advancement in diabetes treatment, as it provides a more convenient and frequent dosing option than other existing medications. Compared to other existing medications, Rybelsus is an effective treatment for adults with type 2 diabetes, with significantly greater reductions in A1C and body weight than traditional treatments.

Uses and Dosage

Rybelsus comes in the form of tablet to use by mouth on an empty stomach when you first wake up with a sip of plain water (no more than 4 ounces). The patient can eat, drink, or take other oral medicines after 30 minutes using Rybelsus. If a dose of Rybelsus is missed, it should be skipped, and the regular schedule should be resumed. The tablet should not be split, crushed, or chewed; you should swallow the whole tablet.

Rybelsus should only be taken with a maximum of 4 ounces of plain water. Do not take RYBELSUS with any other beverage aside from water, as this may interfere with its effectiveness. Start taking RYBELSUS with 3 mg once daily for 30 days. The 3 mg dose is intended for treatment initiation and is not effective for glycemic control. After 30 days on the 3 mg dose, increase the dose to 7 mg once daily. If additional glycemic control is needed after at least 30 days on the 7 mg dose, the dose may be increased to 14 mg once daily. It is important to note that taking two 7 mg tablets to achieve a 14 mg dose is not recommended and has not been studied.
