  • What is the cost of the program? How does this compare to others?
    Our program is priced at $425, which includes a comprehensive initial consultation with a physician boasting over 40 years of experience in weight loss, a personalized program tailored to your unique body and goals, ongoing follow-up consultations, and a four-week supply of medication delivered directly to your residence. Each subsequent four-week period, with progressively increasing Semaglutide dosages for optimal weight loss and a final maintenance dosage for permanent results, remains at $425. While there are less expensive options available, it's important to consider factors like dosage strength, hidden fees, and the level of medical oversight. Our program offers the peace of mind of being under the care of an experienced doctor, compared to the average cost of $1300-$1600 per month for brand-name prescriptions, excluding doctor consultations.
  • Does my insurance cover Semaglutide?
    Most insurance companies consider Semaglutide a 'lifestyle' drug and do not cover it. We recommend checking with your insurance provider for specific coverage details. Our program's cost includes the medication and all necessary consultations and follow-ups.
  • What is the difference between Semaglutide, Wegovy, and Ozempic etc.? Which one is best for me?
    Semaglutide is the active ingredient found in both Wegovy and Ozempic. Wegovy is the FDA approved brand name for Semaglutide when used specifically for weight loss. Ozempic is the FDA approved brand name for Semaglutide in a lower dose, for the treatment of adult-onset diabetes, not for weight loss. Only a physician can answer which medication is best for your body.
  • How long can I take Semaglutide?
    Semaglutide can typically be used for as long as needed to reach your goal weight. During the four clinical trials, study participants received Semaglutide for a period of 68 weeks (approximately 1 and a half years) without adverse effects. It's important to have regular consultations with our medical team to monitor your progress and adjust the treatment as necessary.
  • What are the benefits of tirzepatide over semaglutide? Which one should I take?
    Tirzepatide has been shown to offer better value for weight reduction compared to semaglutide in some studies. The choice between the two depends on individual health profiles and treatment goals. Dr. Carroll will determine the most suitable medication for you based on a thorough medical evaluation.
  • What are the known side effects of Semaglutide?
    Common side effects of Semaglutide, based on clinical trials, occur at very low rates. These include nausea (1.8%), vomiting (1.2%), and diarrhea (0.7%). It's important to note that these symptoms are typically mild and often decrease over time. However, if you experience persistent or severe symptoms, consult our physician for appropriate guidance. The low occurrence rates in trials underscore the safety profile of Semaglutide, making it a generally well-tolerated medication for most individuals.
  • Is Semaglutide safe?
    It's important to discuss your medical history with Dr. Carroll to determine if Semaglutide is suitable for you, especially if you have a history of thyroid cancers or specific medical conditions like Type 1 Diabetes or pancreatitis.
  • Is this addictive?
    No, Semaglutide is not addictive. Unlike certain weight loss alternatives like phentermine that can have addictive properties, Semaglutide works through a different mechanism of action. It mimics natural hormones in the body, specifically those involved in regulating appetite and food intake. This approach not only aids in weight loss but also aligns more closely with the body's natural processes, reducing the risk of dependency typically associated with some other weight loss medications. Our focus at BeSlimMD is on safe, effective, and sustainable weight management, ensuring that treatments like Semaglutide are both medically sound and in harmony with your body's health.
  • How much weight am I going to lose?
    Patients in clinical trials lost 20% of their bodyweight.
  • How long will it take to lose weight on Semaglutide?
    The duration of weight loss with Semaglutide varies depending on individual goals and body responses. Clinical trials have shown an average weight loss of 12-16 pounds per month. However, individual results can differ. It's important to set realistic expectations and understand that everyone's weight loss journey is unique.

  • Why is this program available to Florida residents only?
    BeSlim Florida operates under Florida state licensing regulations, which require a current medical license in each state to prescribe medication. Our practice is licensed in Florida, hence the geographical limitation.
  • Where will I get Semaglutide?
    Once enrolled in our program and evaluated by our physician, Semaglutide and all necessary supplies will be conveniently shipped directly to your home or office.
  • Are there foods or medications to avoid while on the program?
    While on Semaglutide, it's advisable to limit alcohol intake, especially for those with diabetes, as it can affect blood sugar levels and interact with the medication. Always inform our physician of any other medications you're taking to avoid potential adverse interactions.
  • Do I have to diet, exercise, etc? (Change my lifestyle?)
    No. Semaglutide works by regulating your appetite. While lifestyle changes may help with further weight-loss and are encouraged, they are not required. Our team can provide guidance on suitable diet.
