At a Saxenda presentation I found the rules of use were CRAZy

I went to a Saxenda presentation last night and to my amazement I learned I am supposed to increase the dose every week without fail till the maximum dose.
If the patient cannot tolerate the maximum dose I have to give up on the drug. 
I can't go back to the lower dose that may have had an effective weight loss of 5%.
However if the patient tolerates the high dose and loses weight, I can cut Saxenda down to a lower dose if I wish.
