Many celebrities have opened up on using Ozempic to help them drop weight, however, it doesn't always work well for everyone.

Tracy Morgan revealed he was on Ozempic in 2023.

Morgan admitted to using the popular weight-loss drug before joking, "I’ve learned to out-eat Ozempic. I out-ate Ozempic. I’ve gained 40 pounds. I’m like Magic Johnson. I gained 40 pounds."

The 30 Rock star previously spoke out about his decision to try Ozempic in August 2023 during an appearance on the Today show. He claimed it had cut his appetite "in half" and that he'd been combining the use of the medication with exercise.

"I went and got a prescription and I got Ozempic. And I ain’t letting it go!" he explained at the time. "I get up at 7 every morning, and I’m in the gym at 10. Then I go back to sleep. And that’s my life."

Morgan isn't the only Hollywood star to have mixed results from the weight-loss drug. As OK! previously reported, Amy Schumer revealed that she tried it some time ago but she "felt so sick" that she couldn't play with her 4-year-old son, Gene David.

"I was so skinny and he’s throwing a ball at me and [I couldn’t]," she continued. "And you’re like, ‘OK, this isn’t livable for me.’ But I immediately invested because I knew everyone was going to try it."

"The fact that there's a medically approved prescription for managing weight and staying healthier, in my lifetime, feels like relief, like redemption, like a gift, and not something to hide behind and once again be ridiculed for," she said at the time. "I’m absolutely done with the shaming from other people and particularly myself."
