The usage of GLP-1 receptor agonists, such as semaglutide, has grown exponentially worldwide. This class includes both injectable and oral dosage forms. Many patients prefer to avoid injections if possible, however the oral absorption of GLP-1 receptor antagonists is extremely low. (less than 1% per the labeling for RYBELSUS® tablets). For these reasons, prescribers and their patients may prefer an alternative option such as compounded sublingual formulation of Semaglutide. Through our partnership with CMPD Licensing, LLC, an established and innovative compounding pharmacy that developed a proprietary anhydrous sublingual base, we are able to deliver such a compounded medication.

This proprietary base has been shown in in-vitro studies to enable the large molecule of Semaglutide to penetrate through the oral cavity (sublingual) and achieve a substantial delivery percentage of the applied dose – especially when compared to oral therapy. If you believe that this unique product would benefit your patients, we would love to discuss how this patent- pending formulation can help address patient needs where GLP-1 receptor agonists are useful. Information about the proprietary base used in this compound formulation and studies related to this formulation can be found here by following the links. We also have suggested prescribing methods attached here for your review.
