While appearing on Piers Morgan Uncensored on September 20, Sharon Osbourne opened up about the dangerous side effects she encountered while using the controversial drug Ozempic.
Ozempic has been traditionally used by adults with type 2 diabetes to help lower blood sugar and A1C, and it can also lower the risk of stroke or heart attack in adults with cardiovascular disease.
More recently, however, Ozempic has been used off-label for its weight loss side effects.
The Osbourne matriarch—joined by husband Ozzy and children Kelly and Jack—disclosed to host Piers Morgan that she shed much more weight than she planned while using the drug.
"You can't stay on it forever."
"I lost 42 pounds now and it's just enough."
"I didn't actually want to go this thin, but it just happened, and I'll probably put it all on again soon."
She continued, discussing the unpleasant side effects she experienced.
"At first, I mean, you feel nauseous. You don't throw up physically, but you've got that feeling."
"It was about two, three weeks where I felt nauseous the whole time."
"You get very thirsty and you don't want to eat. That's it."
Sharon also recently revealed on the family's podcast that she goes without eating "at least" three days a week.
She added that "younger people" should avoid taking Ozempic for weight loss purposes.
"That's why I keep saying you've got to keep this stuff away from younger people because they will go berserk on it, and it's not right."
The TV personality also shared with Morgan that her drastic change has not gone unnoticed by her husband.
"Ozzy's having a go at me because he says I look like Mrs. Reagan. He calls me Nancy Reagan all the time."
"So, it's just time to stop."

A few viewers of the interview agreed that the side effects Sharon experienced sounded absolutely dreadful.
But most were even more concerned about the ongoing controversy surrounding the popular use of Ozempic for weight loss that drives up the price, depletes the supply and makes the drug less accessible for those who depend on it to manage their diabetes.
There's definitely a lot to consider here, but we're relieved Osbourne feels it's "time to stop."
