Ozempic users are reporting this disgusting side effect: “Next Level”

Excuse me?

Move over Ozempic’s face and finger burps are the latest nasty side effect of the popular weight-loss drug.

The ‘Ozempic burp’ topic has attracted 1.2 billion views on TikTok as dissatisfied users vent about ‘sulfur burps’ that smell like rotten eggs.

After just three days of treatment, one TikToker noticed he burped more, while a diabetic recently complained his burp was “absolutely awful.”

They are not alone. Even Twitter owner Elon Musk, who admitted using Wegovy last year to lose 30 pounds, she said her burps are “next-level.”

Drugs like Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro are glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, meaning they mimic the action of the fullness-signaling hormone GLP-1.

The meds slow down the digestive system, which leads to a buildup of air that eventually comes out as a burp, according to Health Digest.

The unpleasant aroma could be caused by stress, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, and even a bacterial infection. There are also food triggers, such as broccoli, cauliflower, dairy products, garlic and beer.

In clinical trials for semaglutide, the active ingredient in drugs like Ozempic, nearly 9% of patients reported belching as a side effect of the drug, while 6% noted acid reflux.

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and constipation were the most important side effects.

Dr. Laura Davisson, director of medical weight management at West Virginia University Health Sciences, recently told The Atlantic that about a fifth of her patients treated with a GLP-1 receptor agonist experience the dreaded sulfur burps, assuring which often subside after a few months.

“Sometimes it’s a matter of trial and error, he said.

Some tips we give people are things like: don’t eat very heavy meals; do not eat large portions at once; do not eat right before going to bed.

Ozempic patients have reported bizarre dreams and excessive bowel movements, announcing that they are now part of an exclusive society of dieters: the “st the bed club”.

And they’re not exaggerating, they’re literally defecating in their sleep, describing their experiences in creepy Reddit posts. Others claim the exact opposite, not being able to let go.

In addition to the sagging face trend, another phenomenon has emerged: Ozempic fingers.

Women have turned to jewelers to resize their wedding rings after dramatic weight loss shrunk their fingers.

“Summer is usually a very quiet time for jewelers, but this year we’re seeing a huge influx of jewelry repairs due to customers losing weight,” Melanie Fitzpatrick, co-founder of the Jewelery Store, told The Post. LeMel jeweler.
