Ozempic® has garnered much attention lately due to the weight loss medication’s key ingredient (semaglutide), but you might still have some questions. The Clinical Team at Red Mountain Weight Loss® answer your questions to help you decide if semaglutide is right for you.

How Does Revolex Reduce the Side Effects of Semaglutide?

“Commercial brands like Ozempic are known to cause GI side effects that some people are unable to tolerate. Revolex™ is Red Mountain’s proprietary blend made with BPC-157, a peptide that reduces those common undesirable side effects found in other semaglutide medications. This means you can continue to lose weight AND still feel great. Plus, our formulation doesn’t require needles or shots.”

Will I Regain Weight After Stopping Semaglutide?

“While people who take semaglutide medications like Ozempic often regain the weight within a year of stopping, patients who continue to follow Red Mountain’s healthy meal plans and lifestyle can keep the weight off.

At Red Mountain, we ensure you have the tools to maintain your results. Once you’ve reached your weight loss goals, you will be prescribed a Lifetime Maintenance diet plan as well as recipes, meal prep guides, and positive behavioral health tips to help keep you on track and sustain your weight loss success for life!”

Does Revolex Take Away From the Diabetic Supply of Semaglutide?

“Ozempic is a semaglutide medication sold by retail pharmacies, which when prescribed for weight loss limits the availability for diabetic patients. However, Revolex is made exclusively for Red Mountain by a PCAB-accredited compound pharmacy. This means the ingredients are directly sourced for compounding, so the supply does not affect any diabetic medications.”

Heather Wright, FNP-C
Clinical Assistant Director

What’s the Fastest Way To Lose Weight With Semaglutide?

“Commercial brands like Ozempic have to increase dosage over several months to reach the FDA-approved dose.

Red Mountain’s Revolex starts at the most effective weight management dose right away. This means you can lose up to 15 lbs. in just one month!”

Does All Semaglutide Cost the Same?

“Brands like Ozempic can cost up to $1,500 per month for just 4 single-use injection pens.

Red Mountain’s proprietary Revolex features prescription semaglutide for less than half the cost of Ozempic. It includes our Flex™ weight loss program with an individualized diet plan, Fat Burner Boosters, and consultations with our Clinical Team to help achieve your goals quickly and maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime.”

Are Compounded Semaglutide Medications Safe?

“Red Mountain’s Revolex is formulated using semaglutide that is safe and approved for human consumption and has been tested by an FDA Registered Analytical Laboratory.

“However, you may have heard the FDA has warnings to avoid unaccredited pharmacies who choose to cut corners and use research-only versions of semaglutide. With Red Mountain, you can rest assured that we work exclusively with a PCAB-accredited pharmacy that you can trust to use the highest quality ingredients available.”
