Hi - just joined tudiabetes.org and thanks so much for the great welcome.
I have been a Type 2 diabetic for over 10 years. After oral meds and insulin and considerable weight loss, I am controlling with diet and exercise. Last week, my doctor decided to try this med to reduce my A1C level and increase chance of weight loss.
The side effects started immediately. A little nausea, but I can deal with that. It's the 'loopy' feeling that is driving me crazy. No energy, like in a fog, not sharp, can't concentrate. Almost a 'high' feeling. It does reduce my appetite, but at what cost? Anyone experience this? Does it subside? Also, I'm experience hot flashes - yes, I'm in the throws of menopause, but it was being controlled with hormones. Are these two relative?
Thought I'd throw out these questions. Questioning whether to continue the shot or not. But for today, another dose.
