I've been on Victoza now for about 3 years. I originally started on it when i was misdiagnosed as a type II. about 2 years ago i was correctly diagnosed as a type 1, or LADA. i was on Byetta for 3-4 years prior to victoza and did lose a little weight on byetta, but haven't dropped anything since being on victoza. i stay on it now for the reduced insulin requirement. i've skipped taking the victoza for about a week and noticed my blood sugars were running much higher. so for now, and becuase my insurance still covers it, i'm staying on it.
