Victoza to Bydureon

Started by Linnee Dec 20, 2013. 0 Replies

My insurance will no longer cover Victoza, so after January 2014 I will start Bydureon. I've had good BG levels and overcome the extreme nausea, so I'm apprehensive about stopping Victoza. I'll take Bydureon once a week and will save $100/month.…Continue

Diagnosed a year ago, no meds (in denial). Went to doc this week so just started Victoza 3 days ago on the "3 clicks" dosage. So far no nausea or headaches or cramps. Seems that won't happen until the dosage is higher, but hoping for none at all. Is…Continue

Change, but not a good one

For the past week, I have had horrible, constant nausea as well as diarrhea. I've lost 10 pounds because I am unable to eat much. If my blood sugars were improving, it would almost make the nausea bearable, but they are always in the 200s. My endo…Continue

Hi!! I'm writing from Portugal where they just started to speak about Victoza. I'm T1 and fight everyday with my overweight. Victoza appears as a good solution for me. Is someone on Victoza and T1? Could you tell me if result for one T1? Thank you

Ive been on Vicotoza for about 3 weeks. My blood sugars have seen awesome. Ive lost alittle weight and am very happy. Howvere, I am exhausted from this stuff. Does anyone else have the fatigue with it and does it wear off? Thanks.
Comment by moonchild on July 22, 2011 at 6:21pm
I'm three months into Victoza. It's' not as efficient as it was in the beginning, but I'm only on the .06 dose. Combined with walking one mile 4 or 5 times a week it's still doing a good job of controlling my sugar. I plan on moving up to the 1.2 dose beginning in August though.
Comment by Dani on July 22, 2011 at 6:08pm
Hello all! My doctor is pushing pretty hard for Victoza. I'm a little nervous. I was wondering if I could get some feedback. I have been trolling the forum a bit. I just thought I would ask directly. I really do appreciate any and all information you can give me. Thanks!

Comment by Michelle Hughes on May 3, 2011 at 7:42am
I take mine after breakfast in the morning. I started on .06 for a week and then went to 1.2 and had to go back to .07 because I have a sensitive stomach that needs to get use to it
Comment by Samantha on May 2, 2011 at 12:04pm
SEAGATOR, It depends. My endo did not give me any specifics I just assumed to take it in the AM with my morning meds. It will make some, or most, sick to the stomach at first. Most will get over it in time. If not, a new course of treatment may be necessary. I played with it and found out if I forced myself to eat 10 minutes before injecting in the morning I felt much better. 3 weeks after doing this I no longer was nauseated.
Comment by SEAGATOR on April 21, 2011 at 5:28pm
I do not use this medicine. I am on Care Team and trying to get an answer for a lady. Does she take VICTOZA before a meal> She was doing it at breakfast. Now she takes it at bedtime been sick from it her question do you take VICTOZA with FOOD? Thanks.
Comment by Flora_262 on April 14, 2011 at 3:07pm
I took my third shot this morning. I've gotten sick both nights since I started on Victoza, but my BG is great! Staying right around 90 - 100 and I'm still on the lowest dose. I just hope that throwing up isn't the key to the weight loss!
