I meant to start a discussion and sent a message first. Sorry this is my first time doing this.
I started Victoza on Friday, October 22nd with the .6 mg dosage. Had
pretty bad headaches for the first 5 days. Ever since I began the 1.2 mg
dosage I have been pretty constipated. I have been drinking crystal
light with some MiraLAX each day but am still not regular yet. I know
Victoza slows down the emptying of my stomach. I know I have to give it
time. Have any of you had side effects? Any way to find natural relief?
have lost 8 lbs to date since I met with my doctor on Oct. 11th and
have my follow up with them on November 24th. I am excited to see how
well the change in medicine has effected my A1c. I have totally changed
the way I eat now and have cut my portions in half and have started
taking a walk each day at lunch time.
Thanks for any input you might have for a beginner on Victoza. I am just trying to get adjusted to it all. I spent the past pretty much in denial of diabetes. I feel like I have really made a big change since the 11th and hope to continue my lifestyle change. The metformin and Victoza really seem to be bringing my blood sugars down each time I test. The weight loss is going well and I hope to continue to lose it nice and slow so it will stay off.
