It has come to Paul Hopkins Medical's attention that some compounding chemists have been adding products (such as vitamins) to their compounded semaglutide (sometimes referred to/as replica's of Ozempic & Wegovy) and tirzepatide (sometimes referred to/as replica of Mounjaro) which are not listed on the label.

As such, we do not recommend the ongoing use of these products.

If you are taking this medication, please discuss other options with your doctor. You can book a telephone appointment with your doctor online or call the clinic on 49511311.

Note: this does not refer to any of the above medications provided by local pharmacies.
