Claudia Oshry Reveals How Ozempic Caused Hair Loss Issues

Originally appeared on E! Online

Claudia Oshry is sharing one of the mane struggles she faced while on Ozempic.

It's no secret the Girl With No Job content creator has been open about using the Type 2 diabetes medication for weight loss. And although she stopped taking the drug in November, she recently revealed the unexpected side effect she experienced: Hair loss.

"It didn't thin but it started SHEDDING, which is literally worse," Claudia wrote in a May 1 Instagram Story during a Q&A session with her followers. "Overall, I'd say it took 6-9 months to get back to normal."

She then detailed the products she used to regrow her tresses.

"Here's what I did," the 29-year-old continued her post, "Vegamour hair serum daily, prescription for minoxidil (a medication that treats hair loss-related problems), nutrafol (hair growth supplements), prenatal vitamins (vitamins typically taken before and during pregnancy), still got my quarterly haircuts!"

This isn't the first time Claudia has offered insight into her weight loss journey.

"I'm so hungry all the motherf--king time," she admitted in a March 5 TikTok. "I'm always looking for good treats, 'cause I'm still trying to lose weight, but on my own. And I'm always looking for snacks and things to fill me up."

Less than a year ago, Claudia revealed she had joined the wave of celebrities using Ozempic to lose weight.

"The thing that's been harrowing—like, following me around—everybody wants to know if I'm taking Ozempic, Mounjaro, semaglutide," she said in the August 16 episode of her The Toast podcast, "and the answer is obviously. Yes, of course."

And while Claudia has been candid about her experience, she was initially afraid to speak about it.

"When I started, I was a little embarrassed," she added. "Like, 'Oh my God I have to inject myself with something just to get my fat ass to stop eating. Other people can do it without, why can't I?' In the beginning, my decision to not share was rooted in shame."

However, she's not alone. Celebrities like Tracy Morgan, Amy Schumer, Sharon Osbourne and many others have weighed in on the diabetes medication.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 tried the drug to help her slim down after giving birth to her son Beau in 2017.

"I tried Ozempic and it didn't work for me," she shared in an April 2024 episode of her misSPELLING podcast, "so I went on Mounjaro, which did do the trick and I did lose weight."



"I think it's very important we understand certain medications are made for certain people," she told E! News' Francesca Amiker, "and to not take that away just for glamazon purposes."

Raven continued, "Do what you gotta do, just make sure you save the medication for the people who actually need it."

KoKo clapped back when commenters on Instagram speculated that she was taking Ozempic.

"Let's not discredit my years of working out," Kardashian wrote on a January 2023 post. "I get up 5 days a week at 6am to train. Please stop with your assumptions. I guess new year still means mean people."
