Saxenda is a weight loss medicine that’s injected ever day. One of the most common questions people ask is about the cost of Saxenda. In this post, we look at how much it costs on a monthly basis and where you can buy Saxenda for the best value.

How much does Saxenda cost per month?

Saxenda is injected once daily and the dose is gradually increased over the first 4 weeks. The dose for the first week is 0.6mg every day and by the 5th week, the dose is 3mg every day.

The first pen lasts 17 days and you will need 3 pens for the first month. This means that when you buy Saxenda at Simple Online Pharmacy, the first month of treatment will cost £150 if you buy 3 pens. If you buy 10 pens, the first month of treatment will cost you £141.

After the first month, each pen will last 6 days. With the gradual dose increase, you will need 7 pens for the first two months. This will cost £329 for two months if you buy 10 pens.

Buying a full pack of 5 pens will last the first 6 weeks and cost £240.

You should also consider the cost of needles and sharps bins. You can buy extra Saxenda needles from our online pharmacy.
