Mounjaro® and Zepbound™ have received a lot of buzz lately thanks to its key ingredient: tirzepatide. It mimics the actions of two receptors, GLP-1 and GIP, and was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for weight management in November 2023.
As a leader specializing in medical weight loss, Red Mountain Weight Loss® brings patients the most advanced and effective solutions to help them reach their goals. We are excited to offer our newest formulation of our signature Revolex™ medication: Revolex TRZ™ with tirzepatide. While Mounjaro, Zepbound and Revloex TRZ all contain the key ingredient tirzepatide, there are a few key differences:
Revolex TRZ Is a Daily Tablet
Revolex TRZ is a sublingual tablet taken once a day that eliminates the need for shots or needles. All you need to do is dissolve the medication under your tongue (which takes 1-3 minutes), and you are done!
Mounjaro and Zepbound are a once-weekly injection that can be administered in your stomach, thighs, or the back of your upper arms. A few steps are required to prepare the single-dose pen and give yourself the injection. The medication must be stored in the refrigerator from 36°F to 46°F and cannot be used if exposed to light, frozen, or at temperatures above 86°F. The pen also contains glass parts, so a new pen must be used for your injection if dropped on a hard surface.
Revolex TRZ Starts at a Higher Strength from Day 1
Red Mountain’s Revolex TRZ starts at an effective dose for weight management. Since it’s a daily tablet, you are able to start Revolex TRZ at a higher dosage and don’t have to titrate up.
Mounjaro and Zepbound come in 6 different dose strengths. The medication starts at 2.5 mg once a week (for 4 weeks) and continues to 5 mg once weekly for at least 4 weeks. If additional glycemic control is needed, the dose can be increased (once weekly for at least 4 weeks) to 7.5 mg, 10 mg, 12.5 mg, and then 15 mg as a maximum dose.

Revolex TRZ Has Fewer Side Effects
Commercial brands like Mounjaro and Zepbound are known to cause GI side effects like nausea, constipation, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Revolex TRZ’s proprietary blend distributes the dosage of tirzepatide throughout the week and includes additional peptides to help reduce negative side effects. The ingredients also work to improve digestive/gut health, insulin sensitivity, and preserve muscle mass.
Revolex TRZ Doesn’t Take Away from the Diabetics Supply
At Red Mountain, we partner with an exclusive PCAB-accredited compound pharmacy to create Revolex TRZ. They are continuously recognized with the highest level of distinction for their advanced commitment to the highest pharmacy standards. This ensures all our medications are formulated with the highest-quality ingredients. Since the ingredients are directly sourced for compounding, Revolex TRZ has no impact on the availability of tirzepatide for diabetic medications.
Mounjaro and Zepbound are sold by retail pharmacies nationwide. Doctors primarily prescribe Mounjaro for type 2 diabetes, which impacts the supply for weight loss patients.
Revolex TRZ Can Help You Lose Up To 15 lbs. Or More in 1 Month
Research shows that lifestyle factors — like diet, sleep, and exercise — form the building blocks for long-term success. The FDA studies on tirzepatide showed effectiveness of the medication when combined with such lifestyle intervention. That is why weight loss medications should be combined with healthy lifestyle modifications to achieve your desired results and to help maintain your results.
Revolex TRZ is part of our Flex with Revolex™ weight loss program to help you lose up to 15 lbs. or more per month. We give you everything you need to keep you on track for success and a healthier lifestyle. You’ll have access to resources like:
- Individualized Meal Plan: Meet 1-on-1 with our Clinical Team each month to design the ideal meal plan to maximize the impact of the Revolex TRZ medication and help you achieve your weight loss goals.
- Positive Behavioral Tips: Learn how to change your habits and develop a healthier lifestyle with tips from our RM Clinical Psychologist.
- Exercise Routines: Build a more active lifestyle with workouts from our RM Certified Personal Trainer.
- RM-Approved Recipes: Access hundreds of RM-approved recipes to help you create healthy meals in your own kitchen.
Mounjaro and Zepbound are typically prescribed without a diet plan, so patients are less likely to develop the behavioral skills necessary to maintain their results after stopping the medication. This is why rebound weight gain is common when this medication is given without attention to a comprehensive program.
Revolex TRZ Costs Less (And You Get More)
Mounjaro and Zepbound cost approximately $1,060 for 4 single-use injection pens. You won’t receive support from a Clinical Team that specializes in weight loss or a diet plan individualized to your unique needs to help you learn healthy habits.
Revolex TRZ is a fraction of the cost of Mounjaro and includes our Flex™ weight loss program that comes with:
- Revolex TRZ prescription medication
- Flexible diet plan with more real foods (and occasional indulgences!)
- Unlimited exercise/no restrictions on activity levels
- Weekly Fat Burner+ Boosters
- 1-on-1 monthly consultations with our Clinical Team
- Lifetime maintenance to sustain your results long-term
At Red Mountain, you will be under the care of our Clinical Team every step of the way. They will be here to answer any questions, monitor your progress, and make any necessary adjustments to keep you on track for weight loss success.
