44 y.o female with a1c of 7.6... baseline weight 216lbs. Started 7.5mg this week and already down 24lbs. Initially was having headache the 1st and 2nd days after injection of 2.5, but no side effects at all since. I did switch to thigh injections. No appetite, feeling great. Can't wait to see how far I can go!!!

I've been taking Ozempic since Jan. of 2021 and had lost 40 lbs, but I, like most others, had severe stomach issues with Ozempic. I had been following Mounjaro before it received FDA approval and was excited to try it. Meh, it's okay. I have been on it for 2 months. Started with 2.5, and now at 5 mg. On Ozempic I had horrible sugar cravings, which Mounjaro alleviated. But I am hungry on Mounjaro, ...
Im 56, started mounjaro at 247 lbs on 12/1/22 currently down to 178. I have diabetes Ii, nash /cirrhosis, arthritis, hereditary hyperlipidemia and pcos. In past, Have not been able to lose weight because of the PCOS and arthritis. Nothing worked and I really didn't eat that much but the belly weight stayed. No matter how much I dieted or exercised. Since the good Lord helped, my Dr put me on mounjaro. I have lost weight, walking at lrk and most importantly all my lab numbers have gone normal and have dropped from 40 to 100 pts. Even my liver numbers. I still am having to be checked but so far they are n normal range still. I have had one episode of abdominal pain but can't swear that was the mounjaro or diverticulitis when I first started. Now I eat basically one good meal a day fruit or something light for the other 2. I haven't been hungry or deprived of anything you just don't want it and you are able to do other activities that you haven't been able or felt like doing before , so u don't think about eating.i walk at least 2 hrs a day 3 days a week not strenuous just leisurely around stores treadmill or neighborhood. Or I swim. I can do my house and yardwork now and I finally feel like I have had a break through. I don't like taking medication and I drag my feet with my Dr when she suggests a new one, but I am so thankful I listened to her about this drug it has made such a difference in my life and health. I wish all PCOS women, overweight people and diabetics could get on this drug and help them like it's helped me. Even with the abdominal pain the proof is in my lab numbers that it's worked for me. My Drs were amazed at how fast the numbers turned.Read More Read Less
My experience has not been good. 6 weeks in and at least this week the vomiting has stopped. Still nauseous all the time, feel tired but not sleeping well. have only lost 3 pounds so far. Probably will not continue. If it is only this amount of weight loss , I can lose 2 pounds a week without it and just diet and exercise.
After experiencing 5 Er visits for extreme back pain and two hospital stays I asked myself two questions; What change in life style may have caused this and Why do I have so much muscle weakness? Right on one site searching side effects for Mounjaro, a recent new prescription I had taken recently for only four months it stated it causes muscle weakness. Why was this not disclosed in all the warnings that I read prior to taking this med?
I'm a type 2 Diabetic, I started on 2.5mg, and now I'm using 7.5mg, it's just starting to work for me, the lower doses didn't do much. I've lost 28 pounds in 2 months with diet and exercise and now I'll loose more weight now that Mounjaro is working and making me feel full. I really didn't have any side effects with the other doses, but I'm now feeling faint with the 7.5mg. Overall, the higher dose only workes for me.
Took for weight loss. Dropped 55 lbs in 5 months. Side effects for me were constipation, lightheadedness and eye floaters. Nothing major. I do get really hungry as it wears off so the day before injection day is hard.
Eight weeks total on, first, 2.5mg and then, 5 mg, I have lost twenty pounds, my A1C has declined from 8 to 6.5, my BP from 133/80 to 119/72. Twice I have felt nauseated, once, when I hadn't yet eaten for quite a while, I felt dizzy, several days I have felt more tired than I could account for. But mostly, I feel good, more limber, and very encouraged. My doctor doesn't want to titrate up at this point, since I'm having good results at 5 mg. So I continue into the third month at 5mg
Had really high blood pressure and close to 50 pounds overweight (5'3" female). I have lost 40 pounds over eight months. Sure sometimes I feel nauseous the day after my shot, but I feel SO much better overall. We reduced my blood pressure pill strength three times now, I am on a minimal dose and my BP doesn't spike.it is amazing, I never could have done this on my own. My weight is in the very upper side of a normal BMI, that I am overjoyed
Sulfur burps finally stopped for me! Sometimes my weight fluctuates by 6lbs from day to day. I weighed 229 the other day, today I weigh 235. I eat small portions daily. I'll eat an egg ?? or a ?? for breakfast and eat a slim jim or a banana for lunch, and a few Taquitos for dinner with ?? ??, onions, and sour cream. The diarrhea stopped but when I have to "evacuate", my body gives me less than a minute to find a bathroom or I'll have an accident. I can finally see slight definition in my arms! Starting weight was 256 and I'm 235 today. So many ppl have lost weight rapidly, but I'm glad I'm losing weight slowly to avoid the extra skin. I do feel more tired than before I started taking Mounjaro, my Dr said it was OK yo take half to 1 caffeine ??. So I do that M-Fridays. I get a hard as concrete belly sometimes but that always passes. I'm on the 5mg and have been on this for 2 months. A1C was 12.2, now it's 6. Crystal Light packs have helped me to eliminate pop! Fruit punch tastes delicious ??. Read More Read Less
I’m so glad I’m on this. My other meds (jardiance) was not working and causing issues. Just took my 4th injection of the 2.5 and have lost 15.9lbs so far and my A1C went from 7.6 when last tested and my average for the last 3 weeks has been 6.3 (I wear a CGM). I feel so much better. Only issue I have had is first day I ate to fast as was in a hurry and ate to much and tummy felt like pressure of feeling over full. Only other time was I tried a fruit drink and the sugars going way up made me a bit nauseous. Those are the only things I’ve noticed. So I just make sure to eat slower and pay attention to feeling satisfied rather than full like diabetes counselor recommended. Next week I go up to 5 dosage. My tidbit that has helped me so much is wearing a CGM because it’s helped give me a way better insight into what affects my sugars and how they are doing on a daily. Plus showing me mounjaro is helping. Read More Read Less
My A1C was constantly increasing from 7.5 in June 2021, 8.1 in January 2022, to 8.9 in October 22, my endocrinologist prescribed me mounjaro 2.5mil in January 2023, since then I've lost 48lbs and my AIC is down to 5.3, im no longer diabetic which I was for the last 15yrs and I'm feeling like I'm in my 20's again. I highly recommend this drug and is available for testimony in a commercial for real people results
I started this drug in Jan 23 weighing 234 I was type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. It did take a min for my body to adjust to the drug but when it did I felt great and now I no longer have diabetes and no high blood pressure. Still watching what I eat and going to gym. Numbers look good and I'm down to 204. 30 pounds! Would recommend! This drug is a life saver. I also struggle with metabolic syndrome and PCOS so it's very hard to lose weight but little by little. Ty God also for helping stick with the diet and exercise ?? Read More Read Less
I was 419 lbs when i started my Journey, now I am down to 320 lbs, the injection takes a bit of getting used to but the side effects are not as bad as if i would have had weight loss surgery. For me this has been a real game changer, both Physical and Mental.
Caused severe pain in stomach. Cramping doubling over. Bloating. Itching. Shaking. Weak. Sweats. Diarrhea. Burping (Sulfer smell) vomiting
I have familial dyslipidemia and after menopause my triglycerides and measures of liver dysfunction skyrocketed. Liver CT confirmed severe nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. I brought the idea of mounjaro to my doc because recent trials indicate great result for my health conditions. From the first dose, I had so much more energy - feel 20 years younger. I have more energy to exercise and my muscles recover from use much more quickly. I don't think my body has been processing energy correctly for years. The "food" voice in my head is also quiet for the first time in 30 years. Downside is I don't feel like shopping or cooking for the family! Eating small meals, avoiding carbs and fats means no stomach upset. I used prilosec for the first month but once I adjusted, I stopped using it. I still take daily probiotics to encourage good gut health. Fruit, prunes, figs help everything keep moving even at 7.5mg dose. My numbers are all down and liver function has improved in only 3 months. I look forward to seeing the numbers at 1 year. However, the primary benefit is that I feel great and can participate in my life so much more. This is a great drug and it is criminal that health insurance, including Medicare, does not cover it. I don't mind cost sharing - eyeing a piece a cake and thinking whether it is worth $1000 is hefty motive to avoid it - but this drug has real health and quality of life benefits that insurance should help cover. Everyone in my family dies of cardiovascular disease of some kind - stroke, heart attack, heart failure. I am relieved to have a drug that can help fight against this future. The unexpected benefit is how great I feel while I am improving my health. We all need to work hard with our state and federal regulators to make sure this drug and related ones are covered under both public and private health insurance plans.Read More Read Less
40 yo female with PCOS, Diabetes type 2, I have been struggling for years and try everything and it has been a yoyo effect. On september 08,2022 I was 225.6 LBS and I had my first dose Mounjaro 2.5 mg , now I am on week 5 and taking Mounjaro 5 mg now . Today is 10/16/22 I am 114.4 lbs
Easy to use and really helps with weight loss! Been on for 3 months and have lost 20lbs. Constipation is not great but manageable. I find that 7.5mg does not work as well as the 5mg. Any nausea can be managed by eating. Only feels sick if I don't eat anything. This medication can make you not to want to eat at all but you have to. It has been the best thing ever except for the cost. My insurance will not cover it even if approved for weight loss. Hoping to get a coupon from Lily then.
Have alot of acid feeling been on 5 weeks just started my up dosed of 10 .. no appetite.. did have diarrhea for week but it's better now just this acid feeling stinks .
In October 2022 my blood work came back and my A1C was 8.1, started dieting and working out, January 2023 went back my AIC was at 8.9, my endocrinologist prescribed me mounjaro 2.5 mil, as of August 20th 2023 my AIC is 5.3, im down 53lbs and I no longer have diabetes. I've struggled with my weight for 20 years and been o diabetic for 15 years, I can't express my joy and appreciation for this drug for helping me overcome this struggle. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who has a similar story and if they needed me I'd fo a real life personal testimony for their commercial Read More Read Less
The only negative to this drug is the cost. I had no side effects apart from a 60lb weight loss. Not sure how much longer I can stay on mj due to the high cost.
I am on my 3rd month of Mounjaro 2.5 mg. I have not been able to up the dosage due to diarrhea and horrible sulfur belching. I am so disappointed because I have lost 30 lbs. but I am not sure I can continue. I keep waiting because I've read that it has taken some people more time for their bodies to adjust to the medication. I don't think my body is going to. So disappointed.
