SUMMARY: Wegovy is selling so well that it’s hard to get at pharmacies. It’s being positioned as an anti-obesity drug, but one study by Novo Nordisk has shown that people who stop taking Wegovy after a few months tend to regain much of their lost weight within a year. In addition, people who lost weight on Wegovy in clinical trials had nutritional counseling and had to stay on a strict diet.
