Rybelsus: Oral Ozempic?

Have you heard of Oral Ozempic? It’s all over the news headlines as of late.

Have you heard of Rybelsus? Same same, but different?

A little while ago (okay, more like a year or two), I made a video comparing Ozempic to Rybelsus and talking about how it’s kind of the crappy form of Ozempic.

Is this still true?

Let’s get into it.
