Hi @Madgolfermk80 and welcome to the forum.
Have you asked why you’ve been taken off Ozempic?

I’m on Victoza which is a similar medication which is suffering shortages. I changed from a small independent pharmacy who wasn’t able to get it, to a big Boots who so far have managed to fill my prescriptions. Have you been prescribed other meds to replace your Ozempic?

I did ask is it to save money I got no reply ,I nearly always try and get it from a independent chemist,they always seem to get hold of it with no problem

Non-insulin injectable medication (incretin mimetics)
I cannot get any Victoza in Norfolk and Dr has prescribed Metformin SR and I have now Thrush for first time
again in 1.5 years and terrible diarrhoea.
I've been on Metformin for a month and I'm going to try something else.
