Amy Schumer is the latest celebrity to speak out about Ozempic—and she’s sharing a not-so-stellar experience with the weight-loss injection drug.

“Like a year ago, I tried it,” the 42-year-old said on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, while discussing a side of the Vanderpump Rules scandal and why she dropped out of the upcoming Barbie movie. “I was one of those people that felt so sick and couldn’t play with my son. I was so skinny and he’s throwing a ball at me and [I couldn’t].”

While Schumer tagged the drug as “not livable” for her because of the side effects, she did go on to say she immediately invested in the medication “because I knew everyone was going to try it.”

“Everyone has been lying saying, ‘Oh smaller portions.’ Like shut the f—k up. You are on Ozempic or one of those things or you got work done. Just stop. Be real with the people. When I got lipo, I said I got lipo.”

Last year, Schumer posted a beach picture on her Instagram detailing her decision.

“I feel good. Finally. It’s been a journey thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd(lipo) never thought i would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn’t contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40. @paulvincent22vickie Lee (acupuncture) my girl Nicole from the tox my friends and fam. Let’s go!”
