What is Mounjaro?

Mounjaro (also known as Zepbound in the US), is a new prescription treatment that, when combined with a calorie-reduced diet and regular exercise, can support patients to lose weight.

Initially for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, Mounjaro has recently gained approval from the Medicines and Health Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for weight loss and weight management in adults aged 18 and over.

Who can and cannot use Mounjaro?

Mounjaro can be used by adult patients with a BMI of 30kg/m² or more (indicative of obesity), as well as those with a BMI between 27-30kg/m² (considered overweight) who also have weight-related health problems such as prediabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart problems.

You should not use Mounjaro if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the injection, especially tirzepatide. Mounjaro is also unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, Mounjaro is not recommended.

If you are being treated for diabetes, you should speak to your doctor about using Mounjaro as it can cause low blood sugar when used with other medicines for type 2 diabetes, such as insulin.

Speak to your doctor before using Mounjaro if you have:

an existing health condition that affects the emptying of your stomach, such as severe gastroparesis

an eye condition, such as diabetic retinopathy

ever had pancreatitis, which is an inflammation of the pancreas

Mounjaro may interact with other medications, so speak to your doctor if you take any prescription or over-the-counter medications, or herbal remedies.

How effective is Mounjaro for weight loss?

In clinical trials, individuals following a weekly regimen of Mounjaro (tirzepatide) at 5mg experienced an average weight loss of 16.1 kg (35.5 lb) after 72 weeks. Those on the Mounjaro 10mg weekly dose achieved an average weight reduction of 22.2 kg (48.9 lb), while individuals on the Mounjaro 15mg weekly dose recorded an average weight loss of 23.6 kg (52.0 lb) over the same duration. In comparison, participants using a placebo exhibited a more modest weight loss of 2.4 kg (5.3 lb) throughout the 72 weeks.

Is Mounjaro more effective than Wegovy?

When it comes to losing weight, both Mounjaro and Wegovy have shown impressive results in clinical trials. Mounjaro, during studies, exhibited a substantial weight loss ranging from 21% to 22.5% at its highest dosage—a figure similar to the weight reduction achieved through bariatric surgery. In contrast, Wegovy resulted in an average weight loss of around 15% in adults. While direct head-to-head comparisons are limited, the research suggests that Mounjaro’s highest dose tends to outperform Wegovy in terms of weight loss.

How much weight will I lose using Mounjaro?

When using Mounjaro pens to suppress appetite, you can expect to lose around 15-20% of your initial body weight after completing treatment.

What is Mounjaro used to treat?

Mounjaro is currently used in the treatment of individuals with type 2 diabetes, characterised by elevated blood sugar levels. It will soon be made available to doctors and GPs in the UK to prescribe for patients requiring clinical support with weight loss and weight management.

Mounjaro is the first approved medication that imitates glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). Existing approved weight loss injections only imitate GLP-1.

By emulating the functions of these two hormones, tirzepatide (the active ingredient) effectively manages appetite by promoting a sense of fullness with smaller food intake, reducing hunger, and curbing food cravings.

What side effects should I be aware of?

Like all medication, Mounjaro has some side effects, although not everybody will get them.

The most common side effects of Mounjaro are:

diarrhoea

feeling sick (nausea)

Typically, these side effects are usually mild and are most likely to happen when you first start using Mounjaro, subsiding within a few weeks. To mitigate these effects, Mounjaro is introduced gradually to give your body time to adjust to the treatment

Common side effects of Mounjaro include:

  • fast pulse
  • mild to moderate allergic reaction, such as eczema, itching, or a rash
  • decrease in appetite
  • Stomach pain
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • indigestion
  • bloating
  • gas and burping
  • heartburn or reflux
  • fatigue
  • an increase in the levels of pancreatic enzymes, which will show up on a blood test
  • itching, redness, or irritation at the injection site
  • Uncommon side effects of Mounjaro include:
  • gallstones
  • an increase in calcitonin (a hormone that helps to control calcium levels)
  • On exceedingly rare occasions, Mounjaro can cause a serious allergic reaction. This is known as anaphylaxis and causes breathing difficulties, throat, face and mouth swelling, and fainting.
  • Another rare side effect it can cause is an inflamed pancreas, known as acute pancreatitis. This requires urgent medical attention, so speak to your doctor or call 111 or 999 if you have intense and persistent stomach and back pain.
  • Always read the patient information leaflet for any treatment you are using or considering using.

How can I ease some of the common side effects?

Patients experiencing nausea, diarrhoea, or vomiting may find it helpful to:

Eat smaller meals-try splitting your 3 daily meals into 4 or more smaller ones

Stop eating when you feel full.

Avoid fat or fatty foods.

Try eating bland foods like toast, crackers, or rice.

If you experience any more serious side effects, seek medical advice immediately.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

If a dose is missed, you should administer the dose as soon as possible but within 4 days after the missed dose. If more than 4 days have passed, skip the dose, and administer the next dose on the regularly scheduled day.

I’m taking oral contraception. Is Mounjaro safe for me?

As Mounjaro delays stomach emptying, it may make birth control pills less effective. Patients using oral contraceptives should also use a barrier method of contraception (e.g. a condom) or consider switching to a non-oral contraceptive method for 4 weeks after starting Mounjaro and for 4 weeks after each increase in dose of Mounjaro.
