Sorry for the late reply. I take my shot in the morning before breakfast. Have you tried that? I have had some slight cramping in the beginning, but it did subside. It took a few weeks to get rid of the nausea. I also was on Metformin - another type two drug - but long enough to not make me nauseous anymore. If the cramping does not go away, you should call your doctor in case it is pancreatitis, a side effect of the Victoza.
