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.

How do Revolex, Mounjaro & Zepbound Help Me Lose Weight?

Revolex, Mounjaro, and Zepbound all contain the same key ingredient: tirzepatide. It is a medication that was first created to improve blood sugar control in patients with type 2 diabetes. Tirzepatide was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2022 for chronic weight management in adults with obesity (body mass index of 30 kilograms per square meter (kg/ m2) or greater) or overweight (body mass index of 27 kg/m2 or greater) with at least one weight-related condition (such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol).

Tirzepatide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptor agonist. It works by acting like GLP-1 and GIP, two hormones naturally released by your body after you eat to help you control blood sugar. Tirzepatide works to help you lose weight by:

  • Reducing your appetite. Tirzepatide mimics the GLP-1 and GIP hormones, signaling you are full sooner. This reduces your cravings and appetite, so you are not as tempted to snack between meals.
  • Improving blood sugar control. Tirzepatide initiates the body’s release of insulin. This reduces blood sugar levels and allows your body to process carbohydrates into energy instead of storing them as fat.
  • Slowing down your digestion. Tirzepatide slows how quickly the stomach digests your food (a process known as gastric emptying), making you feel full for longer.

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.

Tirzepatide Frequently Asked Questions

How long do tirzepatide side effects last?
Everyone responds to tirzepatide differently. For some, typical side effects like nausea, diarrhea, and low appetite might get better with time. If the side effects from tirzepatide are bothersome, talk to your RM Medical Provider. They might be able to lower your dose or switch you to a different medication (such as semaglutide). Since tirzepatide lingers in your body for a few weeks after your last dose, some side effects might take longer to resolve than others.

Does tirzepatide cause hair loss?
Hair loss wasn’t a side effect reported in clinical studies of tirzepatide (Mounjaro), but it’s still possible. However, some experts believe losing weight too quickly can cause some hair loss. If you notice more hair shedding than usual while taking tirzepatide, talk to your RM Medical Provider. We also offer Viviscal™ Hair Growth Vitamins to restore your hair to its natural beauty.

Are compounded tirzepatide medications safe?
You may have heard the FDA’s warnings to avoid unaccredited pharmacies that cut corners and use research-only versions of tirzepatide. Red Mountain has partnered with an exclusive PCAB-accredited pharmacy to ensure the highest quality of all our medications.

Is tirzepatide insulin?
No. Tirzepatide isn’t an insulin. Instead, it helps your body release its own natural insulin to help control your blood sugar levels.

How much weight can I lose while taking tirzepatide?
Clinical studies have shown patients taking tirzepatide will lose an average of 22.5% of their body weight after 16 months. However, individual results will vary based on diet, exercise, age, gender, and other circumstances.

What are the most common side effects of tirzepatide?
Mild side effects may occur with any medication. The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and constipation. Your RM Medical Provider will advise you on how to minimize side effects.
