Can You Get a Soliqua Prescription Online?

If you have type 2 diabetes, you may have heard about Soliqua and be wondering if you can get a Soliqua prescription online.

Let’s discuss what Soliqua is, how it works, the benefits, side effects, and other precautions and considerations of Soliqua. Then, we’ll talk about how you can get a Soliqua prescription online.

What is Soliqua?

Soliqua is the brand name for a combination medication that combines insulin glargine (a long-acting insulin) with lixisenatide, which belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Soliqua is used to lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.

How Does Soliqua Work?

Soliqua works in several different ways:

  • Lowers blood sugar levels by moving glucose from bloodstream into cells
  • Increases the amount of insulin your body makes
  • Causes your stomach to empty slower after eating, which makes you feel full longer
  • Tells your liver to release less glucose into your blood

Soliqua Dosage and Treatment

Soliqua dosage varies greatly depending on your condition. Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions to ensure that you are taking the correct dosage of Soliqua.

Dosage of Soliqua usually ranges from 15 to 60 units per day taken in the morning, one hour before the first meal of the day.

Benefits of Soliqua

Soliqua reduces blood sugar levels. High blood sugar can result in kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, sexual dysfunction, and loss of limbs. Since Soliqua lowers blood sugar, it helps reduce these risks.

Side Effects of Soliqua

Like all medications, Soliqua does carry a risk of side effects. Potential side effects of Soliqua may include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Low blood sugar
  • Respiratory infections like a cold or the flu
  • Kidney damage
  • Serious allergic reaction
  • Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)
  • Low potassium
