What is Mounjaro?

Otherwise known as Tirzepatide, Mounjaro is a dual receptor agonist. GLP-1 and GIP receptor agonists target hormones that impact the digestive system. While GLP-1 receptor agonists increase insulin production, GIP receptor agonists increase insulin sensitivity.

Mounjaro is the first medication of its type and comes as a weekly injection. Tirzepatide modifies the body’s insulin levels, blood sugar levels, and the hormones that control hunger.

What are the Benefits of Mounjaro?

Mounjaro can promote weight loss in two ways:

  • It communicates to the brain that the patient is complete, making them feel less hungry
  • It slows down the movement of food through the stomach, meaning that the patient feels full for a more extended period

Over the past year, Tirzepatide has attracted much attention for its ability to achieve dramatic weight loss results. One clinical trial found that participants lost 20% of their body weight after only 16 months of being on Mounjaro.

Who is a candidate for Mounjaro?

As an FDA-approved treatment, Mounjaro is safe for most healthy adults. Those who are struggling with issues such as obesity, diabetes, or high blood pressure are generally considered to be good candidates. That said, it is often recommended that Mounjaro patients have a body mass index of at least 30 or higher. We follow these BMI stipulations as they ensure the safety of our patients. 

How much does Mounjaro cost?

As a new drug on the market, Mounjaro can be a bit expensive. Generally speaking, the price can range from $900 to $1,100. That said, those who sign up for monthly treatments may be able to get their Mounjaro injections at a cheaper rate. Patients interested in the treatment can contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more about the costs.
