  1. I have used ozempic for a couple years and am wondering. I was told to put it into my thigh weekly since I inject Basaglar into my abdomen. Is that okay?

    1. Thank you for your comment!
      Both medications require subcutaneous administration. Both the belly and the outer/ upper thigh are appropriate sites for medication administration. Best practices also recommend rotating administration sites to promote best medication absorption. If you have any more questions about this, please contact us.
