Chelsea Handler accidentally tried Ozempic. What is it?

Chelsea Handler said she unknowingly tried the injectable diabetes drug Ozempic, which has reportedly become Hollywood’s new favorite weight-loss drug.

On Wednesday’s episode of Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy podcast, the Chelsea Lately comedian explained how she got started using the drug, also known as semaglutide.

“My anti-aging doctor just gives it to everyone,” she told Cooper. “I didn’t even know I was there.”

Handler claimed her doctor told her to use Ozempic “if you ever want to lose 5 pounds.” After Handler got her dose, she injected herself and went to lunch with a friend a few days later.

“[My friend’s] like, ‘I’m not really eating, I’m so nauseous. I’m on Ozempic.” And I was like, ‘I’m kinda sick too,'” recalled Handler.

She initially dismissed the nausea as jet lag and told her friend that she was taking semaglutide, who said it was the same as Ozempic. Common side effects for those using Ozempic include nausea, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, and vomiting.

“I’m not here anymore. I stopped taking [it]’ Handler said on the podcast. “It’s too irresponsible.”

At the beginning of the podcast, Handler claimed that “everyone is on Ozempic” and called the drug a “miracle” that is “too good to be true.”

“I’m an irresponsible drug user, but I won’t take any diabetes medication — I’ve tried and I won’t,” she said. “It’s not for me, it’s not right for me.”

In early January, at the 2023 Critics Choice Awards, the comedian joked about Hollywood’s alleged love for Ozempic as a new weight-loss drug.

“Gaslighting is when someone tries to convince you that your own perception of reality is wrong, like when celebrities say they’ve lost weight from drinking water, but in reality it’s because everyone is on Ozempic,” she said during her opening monologue, drawing laughter and applause.

She told Cooper during the podcast that she “injected about four or five of my friends with Ozempic,” but that she didn’t want to continue using the drug due to its limited supply.

“This is going to backfire,” Handler said. “Something bad is going to happen.” Chelsea Handler accidentally tried Ozempic. What is it?
