What is Rybelsus (Semaglutide)?
Rybelsus is essentially Ozempic in the form of a pill rather than an injection.
Ozempic and Rybelsus are made by the same manufacturer, Novo Nordisk, and have the same active ingredient, semaglutide.
Is Rybelsus the same as Ozempic?
Ozempic and Rybelsus both contain the same active ingredient, semaglutide. Both medications are used to treat type 2 diabetes and can also be prescribed ‘off-label’ for weight management. The key difference between these treatments lies in the way they’re taken: Rybelsus is an oral tablet, while Ozempic needs to be injected into fatty tissue areas like your arm or leg. Rybelsus provides a suitable alternative medication option for those who have difficulty with injections.
How much is Rybelsus in Canada?
Rybelsus 3 mg starts at $599.99 for 30 tablets, while the 7 mg dosage starts at $689.99 for 20 tablets.
Who can use Rybelsus?
Rybelsus (Semaglutide) is designed to be used by people with type 2 diabetes. In combination with diet and exercise, Rybelsus can help to improve glycaemic control. It is not approved for use in people with type 1 diabetes, in children or in pregnancy.
Rybelsus for Weight Loss
There is one main reason why Rybelsus can help you lose weight and that’s its active ingredient, semaglutide.
Semaglutide mimics a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1, for short), which your digestive system naturally produces to let your brain know that you’re full and it’s time to stop eating.
It suppresses your appetite and makes you feel fuller for longer, preventing you from overeating and snacking between meals. It also slows down the emptying of your stomach and reduces glucose absorption by the intestines to decrease your blood sugar levels and insulin resistance.
All of this, combined with a balanced diet and increased exercise, can effectively help you lose weight.Due to these findings, Rybelsus’ manufacturer plans to request FDA approval in 2023. If approved for weight loss, it may be marketed under a different brand name.
How does Rybelsus work?
Rybelsus mimics the functions of the natural GLP-1 hormone. It works by encouraging the secretion of insulin from your pancreas when blood sugar levels rise. By acting like GLP-1, Rybelsus lowers your appetite and how much food you eat to help you lose weight. Rybelsus also decreases the amount of sugar your liver secrets and slows down how fast the stomach empties food during digestion.
People who take Rybelsus typically experience lower A1C levels, balanced blood sugar, and weight loss. This medication does not increase your risk for cardiovascular events such as stroke, heart attack, or death. But, it could cause common side effects, such as nausea, diarrhea, and constipation.
How should I use this medication?
Rybelsus is a pill, not a shot—a trait that makes the drug more approachable to those with a fear of needles (or those who simply find injections unpleasant or inconvenient). Take this medication by mouth. It is important to take Rybelsus properly to ensure adequate absorption. Take the dose right after waking up.
Rybelsus needs to be taken on an empty stomach with no more than 4oz (or 120mL) of water for correct absorption.
After taking it, do not eat breakfast, drink, or take any other medications or vitamins for at least 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, you can eat, drink, or take other oral medications. Rybelsus works best if you if eat 30 to 60 minutes after taking Rybelsus.
What if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, skip it. Take your next dose at the normal time. Do not take extra or 2 doses at the same time to make up for the missed dose.
What is the dose of Rybelsus?
Rybelsus is available as a 3 mg, 7 mg, or 14 mg tablet. The starting dose of Rybelsus is typically 7 mg once daily. If blood sugars are still high, the Rybelsus dose may be increased to 14mg once daily after at least 30 days on the 7mg dose. Your doctor may increase your dose gradually over time if needed.
You should take Rybelsus at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your bloodstream. You can take Rybelsus with or without food. Swallow the tablet whole.
If you miss a dose of Rybelsus, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for you to take your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your regular dosing schedule. Do not take two doses of Rybelsus at the same time.

Is Rybelsus safe to use?
Yes. Because it is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Rybelsus is safe to use and consume.

Finally, avoid taking this medicine for the sole purpose of losing weight. It may have potential risks, so seek approval from your healthcare professional first.
How to Save on the Cost of Rybelsus
Are you considering Rybelsus as a treatment option for your weight loss or diabetes? One important factor to consider is the cost. The cost of Rybelsus can vary depending on several factors, including the dosage strength and the quantity of tablets prescribed.
The average retail price for Rybelsus 7 mg is around $800 for a supply of 30 tablets, which is $26 per unit. Smart Canadian Pharmacy offering Rybelsus 7 mg tablets from Canada at $586 for a supply of 30 tablets, which is only $19.50 per unit. Buying medications online from Canada is convenient and often less expensive than purchasing them at your local pharmacy.
It’s safe to use Rybelsus with most medications, but since it slows down digestion, it can affect how the body absorbs other oral medications. In particular, this effect has been noted in people taking Synthroid (levothyroxine), a drug used to treat an underactive thyroid.
This doesn’t mean you can’t take Rybelsus and Synthroid together, but you may need additional monitoring to ensure you’re getting the full effects of all your medications.
Because Rybelsus is so effective at lowering blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes, it may cause hypoglycemia if you combine it with other medications that lower blood sugar. For instance, if you’re taking insulin, you and your healthcare provider need to watch out for low blood sugar and maybe adjust the insulin dose.
It is possible to experience side effects while taking Rybelsus. For most people, the side effects usually go away within a few days or weeks.
The most common possible side effects of Rybelsus include:
- Stomach (abdominal) pain
- Decreased appetite
Rybelsus can cause more serious side effects such as:
- Low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia)
- inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis)
- Vision changes / blurred vision
- Serious allergic reactions
- Kidney failure
If you experience any of these serious side effects, stop taking Rybelsus and seek medical attention immediately. Speak with your doctor right away about any side effect that bothers you or doesn’t go away.

- A personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC)
