The former Sweaty Betty owner said she was desperate to reduce the 15kg she gained while undergoing Tamoxifen treatment for breast cancer. According to The Saturday Telegraph, she took one milligram of the diabetic medicine on her first hit, which was four times the dosage advised to her by a doctor. She said,
I thought I was actually going to die. I have had cancer, radiation therapy, all of that. It doesn’t even compare to how bad I felt when I took this drug. For the first 12 hours I was OK. I vomited four times that morning, once in a hire car, and I went to work.
If you are not aware, Ozempic has been a heated topic in Hollywood, with celebrities either confessing to or vehemently denying using diabetes medication for weight loss. Semaglutide, also known as Ozempic and Rybelsus, is an antidiabetic drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is also marketed as an anti-obesity medicine for long-term weight management under the brand name, Wegovy.
The medications function in the brain like a hormone, causing patients to feel less hungry and slowing the clearance of food from the stomach, resulting in weight reduction. Ozempic and Wegovy have gained prominence as the first medications proved to promote weight loss.
Likely, Roxy Jacenko stated that she subsequently experienced extreme vomiting and nonstop epilepsy-type shaking, landing her in a drug overdose center for three days. She said, ‘I called an ambulance. An ambulance was going to be an hour away but I thought I was going to die. I went to St Vincent’s.’
Furthermore, Roxy has subsequently issued a caution to anyone considering using Hollywood’s latest quick-fix weight loss pill. She termed the drug’s use pathetic and silly and urged celebrities to quit lying about not using it to lose weight.
