What is

Wegovy (semaglutide) is part of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist class of medications.

Wegovy is typically used in combination with a reduced calorie diet and exercise to assist with chronic weight management in adults.

For more resources, including a full list of the risks and benefits of Wegovy, please review the product monograph.

How does

Wegovy works as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, which binds to and activates GLP-1 receptors in your body.

GLP-1 helps regulate both your appetite and caloric intake, and this receptor is present in several parts of the brain that regulate your appetite. Wegovy is similar to the natural GLP-1 hormone that our intestine releases after we eat a meal.

This means that Wegovy not only helps slow the digestion process, but it also helps promote a feeling of fullness.

In combination with positive diet changes, and regular exercise, this can help encourage weight loss or assist with weight management.

What is
used to treat?

Wegovy is used to assist with chronic weight management, alongside a reduced calorie diet and exercise regimens, in patients with a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or higher.

In some cases, Wegovy is also used for patients with a BMI between 27 and 30, when these people are experiencing weight-related health issues.

How do you take

Wegovy injections are taken subcutaneously, which means under the skin. This is done once per week. The injections come pre-filled and ready to use.

The best places to use you Wegovy injections is on the front of your thighs, the front of your abdomen (stomach), or your upper arms.

If you have any questions about how to use your online Wegovy prescription, be sure to ask your healthcare practitioner during your online assessment with Felix.

Does Felix replace my doctor?

No. Felix provides a faster, hassle-free way for you to get a prescription to certain medications but our service does not replace your primary care provider. For matters that extend beyond obtaining a prescription lifestyle medication safely and easily, we encourage you to consult your primary health practitioner in person — whether for checkups, personal health concerns, or to inform them about the medications you are currently using.

Can I be accurately assessed remotely?

Absolutely. Our online assessments have been designed to ask all the necessary questions required for diagnosis. We've worked with specialist to create an assessment process that can provide sufficient information for the healthcare practitioner to determine whether or not you are eligible for a prescription and craft an appropriate treatment plan.

It's an emergency. What do I do?

Call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room immediately. Felix is not intended for medical emergencies. Once the emergency has been addressed or resolved, contact your prescribing practitioner to inform them of your experience as this may impact your current treatment plan.

Online Visits

How does this visit work?

After creating an account, you will complete a medical assessment for evaluation by one of the Felix healthcare practitioners. 

During your assessment, you will have the opportunity to send your practitioner questions via secure messaging.  

In most cases, practitioners will complete your assessment with secure messaging alone but sometimes they may determine you require an audio or video visit and/or further diagnostic testing to help determine the best treatment plan for you. 

If your practitioner has determined a prescription treatment is appropriate, they will approve your visit and write you a prescription. Our pharmacy will then ship your prescription to your home.

You’ll be able to message your healthcare practitioner if you have questions about your medication or want to make changes to your treatment at any time.

Do I need to complete my online visit at a scheduled time?

No. We use an asynchronous telemedicine model so you can complete your online visit in your own time and we save your progress so you can come back later to finish it.

If you are completing a visit in the mental health or weight loss categories, your healthcare practitioner may require a phone or video call to discuss your medical profile further during the assessment process.

Does the online visit require a phone or video appointment?

Most assessments do not require a phone or video conversation. Once a prescriber has reviewed the info in your assessment they will respond to you via secure instant messages that you can access within your Felix account.  

If you are completing a visit in the mental health or weight loss categories, your healthcare practitioner may require a phone or video call to discuss your medical profile further during the assessment process.

How quickly will a healthcare practitioner review my online visit?

You can expect to receive a response from a healthcare practitioner within 24 hours of submission. If you’ve been waiting longer than this, please email hello@felixforyou.ca and we’ll look into it.

Can I just get the medication and skip the online visit?

No. A prescription written by a licensed healthcare practitioner is required for all medication currently provided through Felix’s service. If you already have a prescription with at least one refill remaining, you can transfer it to the Felix Pharmacy network.

Please email our Customer Support team at hello@felixforyou.ca and they will be able to assist you with the transfer.


How long will it take to get my medication?

Not long. After completing your assessment, a practitioner will generally respond within 24 hours, and often much sooner.

The pharmacy will process and fill your prescription within 2-3 business days of your prescription approval date if there is nothing blocking them from doing so.

All packages are shipped via Express Post, which usually takes 2-3 business days. You will receive an email with your tracking number once your treatment has been shipped.

Is your packaging discreet?

Absolutely. All Felix shipments arrive in a nondescript blister package so you can have your medication shipped wherever makes sense for you as long as there is someone there to sign for it.

Do I have to be home to receive my package?

A signature upon delivery may be required.

How much does it cost for shipping my medication?

There is currently no cost to have your medication sent to you from our Felix Pharmacy network.

What courier do you use for shipping?

Is the online visit covered by my insurance or provincial health plans?

A Felix online visit is considered asynchronous since it is conveniently completed through a secure chat bases system. Currently, asynchronous visits are not covered by insurance or provincial health plans so you will be charged a visit fee, depending on the category of treatment you are requesting.
