Tirzepatide is a prescription medication that acts as a GIP and GLP-1 receptor agonist. Together, these effects can help control blood sugar levels, reduce appetite by slowing the digestive process, and encourage weight loss. An agonist is a medication that acts on a specific receptor to trigger a bodily response. In the case of GIP and GLP-1 agonists like Tirzepatide, they initiate the release of insulin. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a hormone made up of 30 amino acids that comes from the endocrine cells in the intestines. It belongs to a group of hormones called incretins, which help increase insulin production. Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) is another incretin that impacts insulin production. Tirzepatide’s dual action as a GIP and GLP-1 agonist differentiates it from similar medications like Semaglutide. Some patients find that Tirzepatide provides stronger weight loss effects with less adverse effects like nausea. **How Long Does It Take For Tirzepatide To Work? Tirzepatide influences insulin production as soon as you begin taking the medication. This can lead to benefits like slowed weight gain, reduced risk of developing type-2 diabetes, and less fatigue related to blood sugar spikes throughout the day. Despite working quickly on insulin, it may take time to feel the effects of Tirzepatide. Many patients report a suppressed appetite after their first dose, but some patients don’t experience this benefit until they’ve taken Tirzepatide for a month or more. When you inject your dose, it takes around 24 hours for the medication to be fully absorbed, so the effects often begin the next day after injection. **Tirzepatide’s Weight Loss Timeline Every patient’s experience with weight loss varies, so there is no set timeframe that applies to everyone. How quickly you lose weight depends on lifestyle habits, diet, activity level, age, and other medications you may take. We do require labs every 8 weeks for medication monitoring. Those labs can be completed here within our office or can be ordered at the local health department. *^* Cash or Local Check options are only accepted for Tirzepatide! This is not a medication that your health insurance will cover. *^*
