Mounjaro vs Ozempic
Why are so many turning to Mounjaro?
There are several reasons…
First, the clinical trials where Mounjaro outperformed Semaglutide in weight loss. In a 72-week study, those administered Mounjaro lost an average of 15% of their body weight, compared to only 12% with Semaglutide.
Blood sugar control is another reason. Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) is a more effective blood sugar control medication than Semaglutide according to the same 72-week study where those who took Mounjaro had a greater reduction in their A1C levels than those who took Semaglutide.
It is important to note that Mounjaro is a newer medication with less data regarding its safety and efficacy and Mounjaro is more expensive than Semaglutide.
