Currently, we do not compound semaglutide and tirzepatide with any other main components. Our final compound only contains the main active ingredient. We may possibly in the future expand our compounds to include additional active ingredients.

No, we dispense the injection in vials and provide a video with patient instructions to make the process very easy.

It is very real, yet it is not considered a generic. We source the drugs from reputable wholesalers and test batches for potency and sterility through an outside laboratory.

When drugs appear on the FDA drug shortage list, sterile compounding pharmacies are allowed to compound them, such as semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, yet they are not considered generics. By doing this, we help supply patients with the medications they need. Therapy is not interrupted for some patients, and other patients can start therapy.

Everyone is different, and it really depends on how your body responds to varying doses, the foods you eat, and how much you exercise.

Pinch the fat in the abdomen to inject.

Many doctors prescribe an anti-nausea medication called ondansetron to take orally while you are using GLP-1 medication, and we can fill that for you if your doctor prescribes it.

Travel with an ice pack in a ziploc bag so the vial can stay cool. It will need to be stored in the refrigerator at your destination, or continue to keep it cool with ice.

Compounded Semaglutide and Tirzepatide Injections at Town & Country Compounding During The Nationwide Shortage

  • Semaglutide (the active ingredient in Ozempic® and Wegovy®) works as an agonist on only the GLP-1 (Glucagon-like Peptide-1) receptor.
  • Tirzepatide (the active ingredient in Mounjaro® and Zepbound) is a dual receptor agonist that works on the GLP-1 receptor and the GIP (Glucose Dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide, also known as Gastric Inhibiting Polypeptide) receptor. *Activation of both types of receptors enhances the glucose-lowering effects, which may provide additional benefits in terms of weight loss and blood sugar control.

Used syringes should be thrown in a sharps container. Please check with your town for proper disposal once your container is full. If you would like to place an order for a sharps container, please let us know.

A prescriber can phone in the prescription, send it electronically or via fax, use one of our order forms or send it through our prescriber portal.

Semaglutide primarily stimulates the GLP-1 receptor, leading to increased insulin release, reduced glucagon secretion, slowed gastric emptying, and increased feelings of fullness, and it is used to improve blood sugar control and, in higher doses, for weight management.

*Activation of the GLP-1 receptor leads to several beneficial effects with both semaglutide and tirzepatide

  • Increased insulin release
  • Reduced glucagon secretion
  • Slowed gastric emptying and increased feelings of fullness
  • Decreased hunger through satiety pathways
  • Up-modulates fat utilization
  • Reduced ghrelin levels in the stomach/gut


Tirzepatide has a dual mechanism of action through the GLP-1 and GIP receptor agonist. Its dual action makes it distinct from medications like semaglutide, which primarily target the GLP-1 receptor alone.

Potential benefits of tirzepatide with dual receptor agonist action:

  • additional weight loss benefits
  • additional blood sugar control

*Activation of the GIP receptor (Glucose Dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide, also known as Gastric Inhibiting Polypeptide)

  • If used alone: Increases glucagon secretion — risky for T2D but when used in combination with a GLP-1R, down regulates glucagon levels.
  • In combo with GLP-1R: enhances appetite suppression and improves WAT (white adipose tissue) health and storage capacity, thereby reducing lipid ‘spillover’ and ectopic fat accumulation (around organs: heart, liver, kidneys, etc).
