I would let your Dr. know about these symptoms right away so he can discuss a corrective course of action with you.
I tried Byetta and it didn't work at all for me. Right from the beginning, the nausea was debilitating and then the whole thing backfired and I got gastroparesis, one of the posted side effects. I was also very hyperglycemic, terribly thirsty and urinating ridiculously. When the Doctor checked me out he said that I was basically malnourished due to the gastroparesis. So he took me off it immediately and it took me several months for things to start working properly again. Due to all of this, I needed to start insulin shots daily, which I'm still doing today. I've known people that Byetta has worked great for, but for me it didn't work.
Best wishes
