Tirzepatide is a weight loss medication that has gained attention in recent years for its ability to treat diabetes. In November 2023, it was FDA-approved for weight management. But what is tirzepatide, exactly, and how does it work? Here’s what you need to know.

What Is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide mimics the action of two receptors in the body: glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). It’s the key ingredient in diabetes medications to help regulate blood sugar levels. In November 2023, it gained FDA approval for weight maintenance after clinical trials showed effective results for weight loss.

How Does Tirzepatide Help You Lose Weight?

Tirzepatide (sold under the brand name Mounjaro® and Zepbound™) works by activating GLP-1 and GIP, two receptors that help reduce your appetite and improve how the body breaks down sugar and fat. This unique dual action makes it the first-in-class medication that acts on both receptors, which leads to more significant weight loss.

At Red Mountain Weight Loss®, our Licensed Medical Providers prescribe tirzepatide because it has been FDA-approved for weight management. When combined with a healthy diet plan, it can help patients achieve long-term weight loss success. Red Mountain’s proprietary Revolex TRZ™ is our new prescription medication with tirzepatide and other key ingredients known to reduce side effects while supporting effective weight loss.

Now Available: Revolex TRZ with Tirzepatide

Revolex TRZ is a once-daily sublingual tablet that eliminates the need for shots or needles. Since it’s a daily tablet, patients are able to start Revolex TRZ at a higher dosage and don’t need to titrate up. Brand-name medications like Mounjaro and Zepbound typically start at a very low dose and increase over two to three months to mitigate side effects. We added a peptide (L-alanyl-L-glutamine) to reduce side effects, preserve muscle mass, and improve digestive/gut health.
