Earlier this week the Real Housewives of New York alum slammed people using the diabetic drug to lose weight.
“This is going to be scary because very thin people who have body dysmorphia and eating disorders are going to be taking this,” Bethenny said in a video on Instagram Tuesday.
“I’m hearing stories about it being a mood alterer,” she noted “I’m hearing that it’s affecting people’s personalities.”
According to Bethenny, she had a negative encounter with someone who took Ozempic however she did not reveal the person’s identity.
“I had an altercation with someone that has a very mercurial personality and they were on Adderall previously, which is another thing people have done to lose weight and another thing [improperly] used to lose weight, and this person would, like, snap,” the former Bravoleb said. “Mark my words, we’re not going to hear about the s–t show of this for months and years to come … it’s going to be a f–king s–t show.”
The loophole for people avoiding the Ozempic admission is that many celebs are actually on Mounjaro, a different drug, and more new drugs are coming soon. If someone is struggling with obesity and working with a doctor, that is one thing (and this is all new in this application) but thin rich country club cul-de-sac Americans, buying this online and at Mexican pharmacies is another thing. Having lived through a world with the Ma Huang and Fen-Phen phenomenons then deaths, I know this. Nobody gets out without paying the bill. How do people know the long term ramifications? Medicines used for alternative functions seems a little bit scary with the long term unknown. If it’s true that diabetics can’t get and now afford this medication is even scarier. I said what I said. Think on it.
