Pharmacy unable to fill 2mg pen, but can fill 4mg.

I have 2 doses left of .5 ml. in my 2 mg pen, and will start my first week of .5 next week for 4 weeks. If the pharmacy is unable to fill my next prescription for 2mg. so that I can achieve 2 weeks more of the .5 dose, can I go directly to 1 mg after only 2 weeks? So far, I have had very minimal side effects, only an occasional wave of nausea that is quickly resolved by eating a piece of crystallized ginger.
I called the Ozempic hotline and the 4mg pen only doses 1ml. (4 doses) without allowing for any dosage adjustments.
I’d appreciate your advice.
