Wegovy limitations

I am an advanced practice nurse practitioner who has been prescribing Wegovy since earlier this year. It had changed some of my patients' lives.  The prescribing limitations, requirements, hoops we are being asked to jump through are truly disturbing and a barrier to care. Please make this medication easier to obtain, no more difficult.
