Missed Dose of Ozempic: What Should I Do?

June 1, 2023

Ozempic is taken only once a week, so it is not difficult to forget to take your dose on time. And sometimes delays in ordering or shipping your medication can cause you to miss your dose.

So what should I do if I miss the scheduled date of my dose?

  • If it has been five days or fewer since you missed the dose: take the missed dose, then take the next dose on schedule
  • If it has been more than five days since you missed the dose: skip the missed dose altogether and go on to the next dose

Tips for remembering your dose

Plan to take your dose at the same time each week. To help you to remember to take it, try marking a calendar or setting a reminder (using the alarm or calendar apps) on your smartphone or computer. A note on the refrigerator door can be a good reminder as well.
