The Difference Between Semaglutide and Tirzepatide

Understanding Compounded Semaglutide and Compounded Tirzepatide

At Striker RX, we offer both Compounded Semaglutide and Compounded Tirzepatide, two powerful GLP-1 receptor agonists designed to aid in diabetes management and weight loss. While they serve similar purposes, there are key differences in how they work and what you can expect from each.

Striker Pharmacy Compounded Tirzepatide and Semaglutide

How Each Works

Compounded Semaglutide:
  • Mechanism of Action: Semaglutide mimics the GLP-1 hormone, enhancing insulin secretion in response to high blood sugar levels. It also slows gastric emptying and reduces appetite.
  • Primary Benefits: Improved blood sugar control, significant weight loss, and reduced risk of cardiovascular events.


Compounded Tirzepatide:
  • Mechanism of Action: Tirzepatide is a dual agonist that mimics both GLP-1 and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide), enhancing insulin secretion, reducing glucagon levels, and slowing gastric emptying.
  • Primary Benefits: Superior blood sugar control, more substantial weight loss compared to GLP-1 agonists alone, and improved insulin sensitivity.

What to Expect

Compounded Semaglutide:
  • Effects: Gradual improvement in blood sugar levels and significant weight loss.
  • Side Effects: Possible nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and fatigue, which can be mitigated with included B-12 shots.


Compounded Tirzepatide:
  • Effects: Rapid improvement in blood sugar levels and enhanced weight loss.
  • Side Effects: Similar to Semaglutide but potentially more pronounced due to dual action, also mitigated with included B-12 shots.

How B-12 Shots Help

Compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide can cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, and fatigue. To help mitigate these, all purchases from Striker RX include B-12 shots, which help by:


  • Reducing Nausea and Vomiting: Supporting digestive health to minimize discomfort.
  • Combating Fatigue: Boosting energy levels to counteract tiredness.
  • Supporting Appetite Control: Stabilizing appetite and preventing extreme decreases.


Including B-12 shots in the treatment regimen enhances patient comfort and adherence, leading to better overall health outcomes.

How They Can Help Your Medical Practice

  • Enhanced Patient Outcomes: Both medications offer tailored solutions for diabetes and weight management, improving patient satisfaction and adherence.
  • Comprehensive Care: By providing both medications with B-12 shots, you ensure your patients receive a holistic treatment approach, minimizing side effects and enhancing overall well-being.
  • Competitive Edge: Offering advanced, customized treatments can set your practice apart, attracting more patients seeking effective diabetes and weight management solutions.
