I have been on Victoza for over 2 months now, and it doesn't seem to be working as well as it had been. Has anyone else had similar issues?
It does seem to lose some effectiveness over time. However, you may still be benefiting. I've been on it over a year and there is a difference in my insulin requirements and blood glucose peaks when I miss a dose. I am on BCBS and they did not cover Victoza for Type 1. My doctor wrote a letter after I had tried samples along with test results and asked them for an exception. They covered it. They will review each year with my doctor to see if they will extend the coverage for the next year.
I too found victoza to be brilliant during the first 9 months then my appetite slowly came back and I started to gain weight 2 months ago my doctor changed my victoza to a new drud bydureon you only take it once a week but you do have to mix the drug with a solution a fixer and getting this right is not the easiest of tasks having my Angel to sort it out for me has taken the streesa way this is my 5th week on the drug no side affects to speak of going to the toilet was a problem but it seems to have seeled down now
