Happy for you achieving your goals! But you literally interviewed about ‘overdosing on Ozempic’ in September, 4 months ago. This is dangerously misleading, babe,’ one wrote.

What is Ozempic?  

Semaglutide is sold under the brand names Ozempic and Rybelsus as an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. 

It is also sold under the brand name Wegovy as an anti-obesity medication for long-term weight management.

The drugs act like a hormone in the brain which causes people to feel less hungry and slow the clearing of food from the stomach, which spurs weight loss.

Ozempic and Wegovy have surged in popularity since becoming the first drugs proven to aid weight loss.

‘Ozempic works wonders,’ another added. 

In September, Roxy told The Saturday Telegraph she had been prescribed the weight loss drug as she was ‘desperate’ to lose the 15kg she gained while treating her breast cancer with the hormone therapy Tamoxifen.

Roxy admitted she’d taken one milligram of the diabetic treatment on her first hit, which was four times the amount prescribed to her by a doctor. 

‘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,’ she said.

‘For the first 12 hours I was OK. I vomited four times that morning, once in a hire car, and I went to work.’

Roxy revealed she then suffered from severe vomiting and non-stop ‘epilepsy type’ shaking which landed her in a drug overdose clinic for three days. 

‘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,’ she said.

Roxy has since put out a warning to all who are tempted to use Hollywood’s latest quick-fix weight loss drug.

She said using the drug was ‘pathetic’ and ‘silly’, and called for celebrities to stop lying about not using it to shed kilos.
